Computerization and use of the internet are now part of the daily life of millions of people around the world, to whom they offer countless services and comforts that were once unimaginable or too expensive. Even in Italy as in other countries, the advent of these technologies has revolutionized and improved the lives of many people of all ages, in services, information, entertainment and work.
If in many countries such as the United States, England or Germany, for years, the internet has been one of the commercial channels par excellence, in Italy we are still very late. In fact, there is a strong tendency to maintain those practices and everyday life that it is difficult to give up, remaining very tied to traditional channels and to sales through physical stores.
In this context, the Italian artisan shops seem to be those that more than other companies have remained behind in digitization, accusing a strong lack of skills, resources and time to devote to these activities. Although aware of the importance of the online market and the possibilities that this can offer, in fact, small shops cannot easily access and exploit these resources that require specific knowledge, investments and time.
Madeinitalyfor.me was born precisely in this scenario, in 2012, and since then it has been a service provider to accompany the more traditional activities in the world of the web and digital technologies. A concrete support to the master craftsmen in online sales offered by a service able to provide both the tool to sell and a complete support for the management of the activity that carries out most of the necessary actions and makes many specific digital skills available to professional craftsmen.
What do we do
