Box of Prints
Strategic Marketing Advice
We met Box of Prints as part of the work we do with the London Youth Support Trust (LYST). LYST was established in 2000 with a simple aim: to break down the barriers young entrepreneurs from deprived backgrounds face when starting their own business; these included a lack of affordable workspace, finance, advice and support. They opened an enterprise centre in Deptford in 2001 to house a small number of businesses. They provided them with an affordable business unit over a 2 year period (subsidising their rent). The centre was run by a manager who could provide business advice, mentoring and co-ordinate specialist training. They continue to offer this model of support and we currently operate from 5 enterprise centres across London.
LYST asked Fivespoons to run a programme of digital marketing skills workshops for their businesses. The workshops are focused on helping the businesses make the most of the opportunities that digital marketing provides.
Box Of Prints was founded in April 2016 by Zara Afflick with the aim of releasing boldness, optimism and passion to prints. From the first letter of these words, was created Box of Print, BOP. The company specialises in creating unique printed fabrics, often regarded as vibrant and rich in layered textures. We helped Zara focus on areas she can grow her business, how she can use her website and social media to grow and also general business mentoring. She is thrilled to have spent some time with us:
“Running a business on your own is hard, there’s just so much to think about. The advice, ideas and strategic guidance I received from Fivespoons as part of the London Youth Support Trust Digital Marketing Programme has helped me create real clarity and focus on what steps I can take to really grow my business. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Fivespoons to any business, of any size.”
