We are a couple living and working in Denmark that has always dreamed of having our own small business. The story of Crafty Canvas started with our desperate need to have an activity together that is more engaging and rewarding.
So, we decided to put our hands on our first paint by numbers canvas on a typical rainy day. It was purely to have some diversity in our life with my partner. Little did we know - that same day will inspire us to start our small, home-based business. Both of us have no painting skills, but our first picture has turned amazing because it is THAT EASY TO USE.
It united us as a couple and helped us get closer to a new level.
Our excitement and love for the process made us want to share this feeling with others who, that just like us, crave a change and a way to express their emotions.
We wanted others to have the chance to experience it, too, so we brought it to Denmark. Our costs were covered in 3 months, which has motivated us to increase our stocks and resulted in significant sales.
The decision to sell Crafty Canvas was not easy. For the past four months of 2021, we have been working on an interior design project, a long dream that we finally decided to accomplish. This month, we decided to pursue this dream and entirely focus on our new business. This sadly means that we need to let go of Crafty Canvas.
We love and appreciate our Crafty Canvas Concept & Customers. However, we wish to sell it blooming to an entrepreneur that will have the time to invest in it and drive.
Operating market: Denmark (whole country)
- Highest customer traffic: Copenhagen
- Local: MAL EFTER TAL
- Main International: Paintbynumbers CO
Weaknesses & Opportunity
- Potential new, local competitors (investing in the marketing and upkeeping the webpage stock will help the website rank above the local competition)
- Active international competitors (the most significant advantage we have is quality and fast delivery; most international competitors have low ratings and high product returns. Whereas our brand has not experienced a product complaint or return since its opening)
- Low social media presence on Facebook (because our customers have been coming from the search engine or our influencers, we have not invested in growing the platform with ADs. There is a grand opportunity for improvement in this aspect, and we are ready to share strategies withing Facebook/Instagram Marketing)
- We have a stock of approximately 550 products. Which at rapid growth may be a challenge. However, we have substantial agreements with suppliers, which we will pass on with the company. They will help you with product acquisition at the lowest prices and highest quality.
Our Competitive Advantage:
- Fast Delivery
- Lowest prices on the market
- Better quality
- Better reviews
- Large product range and diversity
- We are popular throughout the main target group of the product, prone to shopping online - from 14+ (while competitor target group is mainly older customers that do not shop online as often)
