Project scope
What is the main goal for this project?

Swing Paints Limited is a family-owned & operated business in Montreal. We've been manufacturing paints, varnishes, and wood finishing products for 57 years under the Circa 1850 brand. We take a hands-on approach to every aspect of our business. Our goal is to produce the highest quality products.

Current Challenge

As a mature product category, we are tasked with attracting new and younger customers. Our industry has revolved around in-person shopping in hardware stores & hobbyists. To build our brand we established our website back in 2000 to create a dialogue with potential customers.

We need help improving our brand name recognition as well as attracting a wider market to the brand & its product offerings.

Desired Outcome

Our goal is to improve our online presence, build our brand name and attract a new audience. We take an educational standpoint towards our industry and so we are not driven by simple e-commerce sales but, rather, by improving the interest in our category as a whole.

What tasks will learners need to complete to achieve the project goal?

To accomplish this, we believe you could focus on:

  • Conducting citation/competitive analysis.
  • Digital marketing strategy
  • Digital marketing tactics, including SEO plan, PPC campaign plan, e-mail marketing plan, social media, content calendar, etc..
  • Students will have the flexibility to be creative in their approach - we encourage their fresh ideas and look to incorporate them into our branding efforts

We want to have a fresh and consistent digital brand presence that reflects our commitment to a flawless guest experience and attracts our target customer.
