On the insurance can I just sell candles and still be covered or do I have to add a soap/lotion line in order for the insurance to be valid?

I am interested in signing up for IBN prosuct insurance, and am wondering if there is also insurance available for a manufacturing facility location/leased building space?
Comment by dM, CEO on August 10, 2011 at 7:35pm


Thank you for your question. Many of the more lucrative craft fairs will request an insurance certificate. If they do, you can get one for just $395 when you join IBN. If they don't request a certificate, then you don't have to get one, but it is a good idea to have insurance to cover your business just in case someone does bring any kind of claim.

The Apprentice Membership does not come with insurance. It also does not come with promotional benefits. It is designed for people who have not officially started -- just like you! With an Apprentice Membership, you get access to all of my mentoring and coaching via members only teleseminars and more. It's just $125 a year (that's about $10 a month!), and your business is worth it!

I hope you'll join us -- here's the link.

If you have further questions, let me know.

I have not started my business yet but would like to keep it small and go the craft fair route to sell my soap. Do I still need liability insurance? Is any offered with an apprentice membership? Do I have to sign up for full membership to obtain it?
Comment by Habie Rose on February 27, 2011 at 11:44pm
I have more than one website to sell my products. I have different products and therefore want to keep them separated. How do I add my new website to my insurance coverage or is any additional websites automatically covered under the policy? What do I need to do, if anything. Thank you.

I have questions about the liability insurance that is offered with your membership. What are the details of the coverage?

Good Afternoon, I am interested in launching a perfume? Will Indie University be a good resource of this venture. Also, how do you get an invitation to read some of the classes that are displayed? Is an opportunity to have a mentor or questions asked when necessary while going through the process of creating wonderful products?
Comment by Geoff Hahn on September 15, 2010 at 11:42pm
I was wondering if there is a searchable discussion on various beauty business topics. Wasn't able to find. Thanks!
Comment by Joanna Longo on August 25, 2010 at 11:41am
I'm a paid IBN member and I can't access all of the info available when I log in. Help!!
Comment by Eliza on August 18, 2010 at 12:48pm
I would be interested in the classes? How much are they per class? Do you have to be a member with insurance to participate?
Comment by Michael on August 7, 2010 at 10:46am
I'd like to view some of the content but I am presented with a statement saying something about needing to be invited? I have joined as a member.

DM! you were fabulous at the Denver Soap conference! I love your energy, spirit and faith in all. I am joining IBN as a site guest but will upgrade soon! I realized how much I have completed with my small biz thus far, but so much needs to be improved upon! One step at a time, so long as it is moving forward and in the right direction!!! Best regards, Ruthann
Comment by Eloise Lee-Gold on May 11, 2010 at 11:59am
Thank you. I will chat with the people at the Small Business Centre and see which option works best for them. Any information on product testing?
Comment by dM, CEO on May 11, 2010 at 11:51am
Eloise: Thank you for your interest in the Indie Beauty Network! I would love to have you as a member. We don't produce pro forma invoices. There are 3 typical ways to join:

1. Complete the application here and click "next" to proceed to the insurance form and pay with a credit card.

2. Complete the application portion here, and click "next" at the bottom of the page, but don't complete the next page. I will see your application and call you to request information needed to get payment via PayPal.

3. Send payment by check and I will send you a payment voucher that you can use as verification of funds and expenses, and call you to get the information needed to complete the application for membership and insurance.

To pay by check, or if none of those options works, please call me at 704 291 7280 and I can help you further.

I would like to become a member of the Indie Beauty Network, as well as to get some insurance for my business which is located outside the US - Barbados. I, however, use my sister's address (she lives in Las Vegas) to order supplies for my business here. I read on your site that it was possible to have my business insured based on this. Therefore, would like to request a proforma invoice for the full amount to join the network and insurance coverage for a year, as I'll be using a small business loan to cover the cost.

In addition, I would like to get my product tested; are there any affiliate businesses on the network that offer these services?
