I need some help

Post by *Anthea* on Mon Sep 01, 2008 1:35 pm

OK girls, I am currently at tafe, and I am studying Small Business Management, and am using the Scrapbooking Industry as my example of a business.

What I want to know is,

What you think the current need of the market is?

ALSO would any of you girls like to undertake a scrapbooking survey for me? pretty please, it will remain confidential, dont worry, its not personal, but I need to do a little market research, and no one in Australia has done this as far as I can tell. let me know, and I will try to find out if I can email the survey.

Thanks girls!

Hey Anthea sounds great and yeah I will do your survey if you want....
I think that the demand for scrapbooking products grows by the day...You know as well I as do that once you start 90% can't stop and when you go shopping it is very hard to say no to what ever is out there new and old....lol I also read an artical....though it was world based...but it said that in the last two years the income that was generated due to anything Scrapbooking related reached 2 Billion dollars....the industry is growing huge and because of it, it has revolutionised other crafts beyond the imagination....

So hope that helps babe...

Hey Anthea, I'll do the survey for you too mate if you like.

In my experience I have found the clients in the current market to be at 2 ends of the spectrum. Owning a shop online opened my eyes to the wants and needs of online customers...I found that online customers want everything current...straight from the states as soon as it is made. They want what no one else has, something new and interesting, anything to keep them on top of the 'game' (in order to be published etc) but then going teaching classes at my local scrap shop has shown me the other side of the industry. Where the majority of the customers don't actually know much about the current market (this may be just my local shop which has an aging client base), about 90% of them don't know who Heidi swapp is, they just want what looks nice as long as it's cheap.

People don't have a lot of money to spend of their hobbies these days and I think affordability does play a large role in the needs of the current market. Nobody wants to stop scrapping, they just want to be able to afford a bit on the side without sending their family broke. lol.

I hope this makes sense and is helpful (sorry to blab on). xx

I would be willing to participate in a survey for you, Anthea!

Also with regards to your question:- Current needs of the Market - I would say definately variety (as everyone has different tastes and what one person likes, another may not!) and access to new products. (I agree with batnbub that there is a need to get our hands on the latest products). Also cost plays another great part. I am always on the search for a bargin, so that I don't send my family broke. Hope this helps.
