With National statistics illustrating only 5% to 7% of the population use framing services, this framer’s business has been increasing every year, and will continue to do so! Also, while the big box shops offer competitive pricing, said shops wind up referring customers to this framer because of the expertise this framer offers which is unmatched by the big box shops. Also, per the emotional, and sentimental value customers have for their art and photos, they appreciate the tender loving care their pieces receive at this shop, and have become long term customers as a result.
As the residential areas surrounding this shop are growing so rapidly, sales will continue to increase due to increased customer traffic alone. Also, other avenues to increase growth include: more affiliation and interaction with local artists, and artistic clubs, increased social media presence, and a direct mail campaign.
Big box shops are in the area; however, due to their lack of artistic expertise, they really are not competitors. Granted, the inexperienced customer is attracted to the big box shops, but they soon learn of the short comings of the big box shops, and become loyal patrons of this frame shop per its artistic expertise, and unsurpassed customer service.
