What is DIYvinci Market?
DIYvinci Market will be an online marketplace where creative individuals and small businesses will be able to sell their handmade art and crafts.
Who We Are
DIYvinci.com officially launched in 2016 selling art and craft supplies, DIY kits, and home decor. We have heard from multiple artists and crafters who were looking for alternative marketplaces to sell their work. DIYvinci's goal is to create a marketplace that is packed with useful selling features, is user friendly, and offers a budget friendly subscription plan for sellers of all levels.
Who is it for?
How is DIYvinci Market Different from Other Handmade Marketplaces?
1. Simple Affordable Pricing
Most handmade marketplaces have some sort of commission fee per sale and a listing fee. Our goal is to make pricing both simple and affordable with three membership tiers.
The Start Up: The Start Up is a free plan and allows sellers to access all features, but has a 25 product listing limit. This plan is perfect for those wanting to try out the platform or are just starting out with their business.
The Small Business: This plan costs $10 a month. Sellers will have access to all features and will be able to list up to 150 products.
The Entrepreneur: This plan costs $25 a month. Sellers will have access to all features with unlimited listings and the additional benefit of having featured listings and exclusive craft supply discounts from DIYvinci.com
2. Extra Perks
Sellers will have the benefit of extra perks from DIYvinci Market's sister platforms DIYvinci.com and DIYvinci Studio. DIYvinci offers quality art and craft supplies that can be used to create your next masterpiece. DIYvinci Studio offers a community of like-minded artists and crafters as well as free and premium courses.
3. Small Community
DIYvinci Market is new and we currently are planning for a limited number of sellers in our first year. That way the marketplace won't be oversaturated with the same type of crafts.
4. Created by an Artist for Artists
DIYvinci was founded by artist Jennifer Parr who not only uses the art supplies offered on DIYvinci, but also has experience selling on multiple marketplaces.
5. Physical Goods/Digital Downloads/Commission
Many marketplaces can be limiting with the type of products that can be offered. DIYvinci Market plans to allow sellers to not only offers physical goods, but digital items, and services. We also have plans to add an auction system.
Why Do You Need My Help?
1. Website Development
Our project is an online platform and therefore our main focus is website development. This includes the website design, functionality, hosting, security, and content. This is where a good portion of our startup costs will be going towards.
Not only do we want to attract sellers to use our marketplace, but buyers to purchase items from our sellers. We are developing a marketing strategy that includes social media and search advertising.
3. How-to Tools for Sellers
While DIYvinci Market is going to be designed to be user friendly, we plan on creating thorough how-to documents for sellers to get the most out of their shops.
4. User Testing and Research
Our goal is to create a useful and easy experience for sellers of all levels to sell their handmade items. This requires testing to make sure all features work as expected and research to understand our users' needs.
Are you interested in beta testing our platform, offering input on features, or saving a spot for our shop? Be sure to select the "Save My Spot", "I Want It All", or "Lifetime Access" rewards!
