The idea that helps Crafters and Artisans

Crafters and Artisans want to efficiently manage their handmade goods inventory. However, they can't get it because they struggle with tracking sales, materials, and product availability.

Therefore, they need to use your solution, e.g. CraftStock.

Handmade Goods Inventory Management Software : CraftStock is a tool specifically designed for crafters and artisans to manage their inventory, track sales, maintain material stock levels, and streamline their production process. Of course it is much better than the stuff from Craftybase, or Craftybase!

How to find Crafters and Artisans

You can get insights about the pain points of crafters and artisans if you listen to them carefully, either in person or online. Listening online is much easier because you need not ask them for a customer interview but you can observe them talking about their problems, out there in their natural habitat. They won’t even notice that you are there, watching and listening to them.

The process, step by step

One process that we can totally recommend is this:

  • Find out where crafters and artisans hang out (Reddit, Mastodon, etc.)
  • Read what problems they talk about, and how urgent they are to them. (Did they try any solutions, yet? Did they spend money on anything, yet? Did they even cobble a homegrown solution together?)
  • Enter the conversation: Help them with tips, ask more about their situation and why they are in pain.
  • If you find recurring questions or pet peeves of crafters and artisans, create some helpful content for them (e.g. a blog post, a podcast episode, or a video) and share it with them for free, in the same conversations. They will be delighted.
  • At the end of the blog post, invite them to use your solution: Handmade Goods Inventory Management Software.
