The American Preppers Network Announces Partnership with The Marketplace by The Blaze
Beginning March 2013, The American Preppers Network (The APN) will partner with The Marketplace by The Blaze (The Marketplace), joining them in their efforts to support small businesses across America and educate consumers about the importance of preparedness. The Marketplace will be launching a ‘Self Reliance Tuesdays’ email campaign to focus on their small business shops while emphasizing the value of preparedness for themselves, families and loved ones. The APN will be supporting The Marketplace’s efforts by promoting the deals and information provided by them and by sharing the message of Self Reliance Tuesday. The Marketplace understands that when it comes to being prepared, being able to rely on yourself is half the battle. The Goals and Mission of The APN and The Marketplace are very synergistically aligned; making sharing knowledge and opportunities a win-win for the members of both groups. The APN is very excited to include the services, products and offerings of The Marketplace into the collection of information and services they already provide. Among the most popular preparedness products in The Marketplace are the extraordinary Lifestraw Personal Water Filter, the versatile Stove in a Can, the storm friendly 72 Hour Kit and the world-famous TATTLER canning lids. Explore these shops in The Marketplace, support small business and be the person others look to during difficult times. As a benefit of this partnership, APN members can look forward to regular notification of opportunities available to them through The Marketplace via APN emails and notices published throughout their network.
About The Marketplace by TheBlaze
The goal of The Marketplace is to assemble the world’s finest collection of unique small businesses. We don’t just look for quality products; we look for quality people—entrepreneurs who are living their own version of the American Dream. And while our acceptance rate might be lower than Harvard’s, we believe that the businesses and products that do make the cut will exceed your expectations in every way.
When you read each of our shop’s stories (just click on a shop name and then the “Our Story” link) you’ll quickly see that these owners are not consumed by profits, they’re consumed by passion, integrity, hard work, and their families—entire generations of them in some cases. You’ll also soon see that supporting these businesses means that you are often supporting entire communities that depend on them. For example, buying a steak from Nebraska Star Beef means that they in turn pay small ranchers, feeders, butchers, storage companies and distributors.
