I'll start with examples.
• Make for something:
That girl will really make for a good actress.
"Make for something" as you can see means that the subject will be suitable to create the object (something).
• Bring about:
The customer service will about good patronage.
"Bring about" means that the subject will result in the occurrence of the object. In other words, it means "cause".

So while "make for something" means "being suitable to create", "bring about" means "will cause".
