What is Artify?
Artify is Botswana’s leading art marketplace
We provide virtual spaces to sell art, changing local lives. Art that awakens our imagination, transforms our homes and expresses who we really are. At Artify we’re building a place where artists can make a living doing what they love. Where anyone can easily find and buy original art, no matter their taste or budget. We believe that buying art should be as enjoyable as living with art.
Artify is an online art marketplace launched in November 2020 and is based in Gaborone, Botswana. Our online art marketplace enables artists to sell physical art products such as paintings, drawings, carvings or baskets, to interested buyers around the world online. Artify provides amazing value to both buyers and sellers.
Unlike Amazon and eBay which are based on the horizontal model selling almost everything on their platform, Artify has chosen a vertical platform model by confining itself to selling only craft items in various categories. Along with insights into Artify’s business model and revenue generation strategies, let’s also go through its customer segments, value propositions and some other interesting facts.
