Knowsley business Whiston Interiors was established in 2016 by husband and wife team Dave and Shirley Panther. Since their formation two years ago the company has successfully established a solid domestic customer base, however with the drive for growth Dave wanted to expand the business further by extending their reach into the commercial market.
Dave said “We are proud of our achievements in the relatively short time we have been trading, with customers locally across the Liverpool City Region and as far reaching as North Wales. We have attracted commercial clients but we are keen to maximise on our potential, we know there is a demand for our products we just needed some guidance on how to market the business”.
Dave contacted the Knowsley Growth Hub to find out what support was available to local businesses. After an initial meeting with a Business Advisor, the company enrolled onto the Business Growth Programme and accessed professional marketing advice to help the company develop a clear marketing strategy.
In addition, the company received expert advice around the company’s website and Facebook account boosting the company’s digital marketing reach and ensuring the company was taking an integrated approach to its marketing, helping to increase the company’s reach and sales.
Upon completion of the support Dave said “There are so many areas that a company can market itself now and I felt I needed to speak to a marketing and website expert to find out more about what I should and shouldn’t be doing”, he continued “The advice has provided me with many insights into marketing and advertising and in addition I was introduced to many areas of website and search function that I was simply not aware of. I have also been provided with really great reports for future reference”.
To assist with raising the company’s profile the company has also joined Knowsley Chamber and Dave is a keen member at Chamber networking events.
