I came across this site today, En Femme Style. They have a good range of clothing, accessories, and other items for transgender women and crossdressers. There are some items on there that I am interested in. I also sent an email to the company asking if they would be interested in a marketing partnership. I would love to have some kind of marketing relationship with them where we could bring them new customers, and they could help our site's members with important fashion items and advice.

I am not familiar with them. Were they a similar brand specializing in trans women's clothing?

Not specifically trans but taller women's sizes and larger size shoes.
I never bought from them but they always came up when others asked about where to find the larger sizes.

Katie, I am always a bit wary of any commercial partnership in a community based project, since one does invariably lose at least some degree of freedom, no matter how one tries. At the very least, if you do partner and even if you do not actively take a side, you would nonetheless present only *one* possible choice out of - admittedly here not so - many, thus making any others that do exist - and probably struggle - less visible.

Having said that I did read through a couple of their "Learning Center" blog entries and immediately had the feeling that I would *really* like to get to know this "Hannah" girl. She definitely has things to say and she says them very well and wonderfully balanced. She is probably not active here as a person, right? - Perhaps getting her to join and be part could be a starting point for a future partnership? ... ;)

Marcie, the forum is currently funded by Katie and the original policy was to never ask members to contribute. So this means we do have to raise a small amount to cover costs, and low level advertising should cover this. There are plenty of advertisers who would advertise here, but Katie is looking for a couple which could offer compatible goods and services to our members.

Hugs,

Allie

If some kind of affiliate or distributor partnership could happen, it would help offset some of our operating costs. I have everything paid up through the end of the year, but annual costs are about $300. It's not like I need to raise a fortune, but we committed from the start to not have financial burdens fall on the members. So, I am on the hunt for ways to generate revenue without ruining the site.

A small number of sympathetic commercial affiliates is not a problem for me. A contribution to the site's costs and possibly the offer of a discount to members seems fine, so long as the written agreement specifically states that they will not have any say on site contents or policies and, should it suit us, to have equivalent relationships with anybody else, including their competitors. Either party should also be able to end the relationship at any time, for any reason.

As for En Femme Style, I've no problem with them, although the cost of international shipping probably means that I'll never buy from them.

Cheers,
-Kenna

Crap! They had lots of tall stuff. Ugh! Why does the universe hate me.
Said that they were winding down operations or something. Sounds like they might be selling off stock then.
I'll have to see if i can find that again.
