As a musician I am no expert on the business world, Vanilla Heart are perfect to contact as and when I need commercial, marketing or business advice.
When I started up my venture they were on hand to offer advice and support wherever it was needed.
They worked with me on the message and promotion for the centre, together we produced a fantastic brochure and the website content.
They produced a project plan that covered all aspects of setting up the business; strategic planning, financial considerations, brand and marketing, administration and processes.They worked with me on the proposal for our successful Arts Council funding bid.
Andrea really went the extra mile to understand the music industry and her commitment and enthusiasm was amazing. She is great to work with and absolutely professional. I would not hesitate in recommending her and Vanilla Heart to any new start up, her help and support has been invaluable. I couldn't have done it without her."
Working with Vanilla Heart has been a real asset to my business they listened to my needs and then designed and developed my website, some of the terminology Keywords, title tags, coding and SEO are all relatively new to me so the work Julia has done has been invaluable.
When I added a new area to my business it was no trouble for them to adjust and adapt the website to include this information. They also created some of the documents and forms that are specific to my business.
“Your service has been extremely professional, and I have found your knowledge and expertise of the business world extremely helpful.Thanks again Vanilla Heart".
Initially Vanilla Heart helped me restore my website when I had problems with it, they then went on to create my price list brochure, advertising posters and my business cards their advice and support was just what I needed to help with the advertising side of the business.
I was very pleased with what they had delivered so I asked them to assist with my social media, they created a series of web and facebook ads, they advised on both strategy and advert style and design , this increased visits to my facebook page, increased ‘likes’ and appointments went up by 10 % during the campaign. When I decided to launch my own beauty products they created a project plan and worked alongside me to carry out market research, competitor analysis and decide on a pricing strategy.
The second stage was to design and research the packaging and promotional materials, we had regular meetings and updates but most of the background work was carried out by Vanilla Heart so I was able to continue running my business with little disruption. The final stage was launching and promoting the products, the BY Cindy products have been a success. This was due to the way Vanilla Heart worked with me to ensure all the necessary aspects of my ideas were incorporated and developed in the way I wanted. I found their expertise, creativity and advice invaluable.
