History of Fiskateers Founding of Fiskars


Fiskars is a leading global supplier of consumer products for home, garden, and outdoors. The company has a rich history that dates back to 1649, when a Dutch merchant named Peter Thorwöste established an ironworks in the Finnish village of Fiskars. Over the next few centuries, the company expanded its operations and became known for its high-quality scissors, knives, and other cutting tools.


Creation of Fiskateers

In 2005, Fiskars Brands, Inc. was facing a challenge. The company’s market research showed that its products, including its famous scissors, were losing ground to cheaper, commoditized products available in chain stores like Wal-Mart. To counter this trend, Fiskars decided to launch a social media campaign to engage with its customers and build a community of brand advocates.


The result was Fiskateers, a social community for crafters and scrapbookers who use Fiskars products. The program was launched in early 2006 with the help of South Carolina identity development agency Brains on Fire and specifically Geno Church. The Fiskateers program was a word-of-mouth campaign designed to use social media to promote Fiskars products and build a community of loyal customers.


Fiskateers quickly became a thriving online community, with more than 7,000 brand advocates by 2013. The program was built around the idea of “spreading the Fiskateer spirit,” which encouraged members to share their love of crafting and Fiskars products with others. Fiskateers were given special training and access to exclusive content, and they were encouraged to host events and workshops in their local communities.


Overall, Fiskateers was a successful marketing campaign that helped Fiskars to connect with its customers and build a community of brand advocates. The program was a testament to the power of social media and the importance of engaging with customers in a meaningful way.
