THE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PLAN

THE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PLAN

Polly has been extremely helpful in taking my business to the next level. I came to her for a 'Business Development Plan Package', with a view to widening my net of prospective clients and developing an effective marketing strategy, including social media. Polly’s knowledge and expertise has been invaluable. Her input was so important in all aspects of the business, including finding a new assistant. I believe Polly’s ‘tailored’ approach is particularly appropriate for niche businesses like ours, and her ability to provide bespoke expertise where necessary is very effective .

THE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PLAN

I approached Polly Williams to discuss my ideas for starting up a new interior business, She has a wealth of knowledge and contacts in this area and the information I received from her was invaluable, She helped me focus on the key aspects of the business and was positive and encouraging throughout the sessions. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone thinking of setting up any type of business relating to interiors.”

THE MARKETING ACTION PLAN

THE MARKETING ACTION PLAN

When we signed up to Camberyard’s Marketing Action Plan, Polly took great trouble getting to grips with how our 10-year-old art-dealing business works. Having listened to us she then came up with clear suggestions of what she saw as our strengths and how to build on them. Her appraisal and ideas of how to develop were utterly realistic and very perceptive. She has helped us shift our emphasis in a small but essential way and her guidance towards getting more editorial coverage in the interior design press has been invaluable. The Marketing Action Plan provides real value for money and, on top of everything, Polly is delightful to work with.

RW, Galllery Owner, Completed marketing action plan.

THE MARKETING ACTION PLAN

I spent quite a few months looking for a PR to help structure the company’s branding and to help us progress with a clear marketing strategy. From day one I knew that Polly was the perfect fit for us. Polly’s mentoring service goes beyond PR and marketing (although her experience and contacts on that front are invaluable) and she will help with any aspect of the business that you may need guidance on or structure around. Polly’s flexible approach is brilliant for fast growing companies who want to cherry pick the aspects of PR that are most appropriate for them at their stage of growth. Polly takes time to review where the business is currently and where it’s going before bringing in bespoke expertise where it’s needed. A much more tailored approach than a ‘blanket’ campaign that many PR agencies offer. Inspiring, encouraging and approachable, with effective strategy and brilliant, fast results that you can see immediately.”

From our first conversation with Polly, we knew that she fully understood our requirements for launching our business. Her knowledge and skills helped us to focus on where we needed to be; she gave us structure, guidance and confidence in knowing how to attract new clients. Polly has been paramount to our business in taking it forward - so much so we signed up for her Three Month Mentoring Plan. It has been hugely helpful knowing we have Polly's support; she's always gone that extra mile for us. We look forward to working with Polly more in the future and cannot thank her enough.

After completing the company launch package with Polly, I can confidently say I feel more positive and prepared for the future. Polly not only encouraged me, but structured my business to enable me to effectively execute my business plans. From social media to daily time schedules, working with Polly has been invaluable. I will be sure to continue my catch-ups with her and Camberyard.

THE COMPANY LAUNCH PLAN

From our initial meeting, I was excited to find someone who believed in my ideas and was excited to be part of the journey. Polly’s expertise helped me to clearly define my core company drive and message. There is something empowering about someone who believes in you and what you are trying to achieve. Polly has been there every step of the way, guiding and supporting me, whilst continuously helping me to re-evaluate my company, ensuring we stay true toour core principles and that I keep my feet firmly on the ground. I feel organised, focused, empowered and driven. My idea is no longer just an idea; it is a well-structured, carefully planned service,which has been positioned thoughtfully and very well received. Without Polly’s guidance, my business would have stayed an idea, or I would have taken much longer to get to where I am today.

THE COMPANY LAUNCH PLAN

I met with Polly to help launch my company and streamline our website and branding. Polly delivers exactly what she promises and more. Her mentoring and flexible approach is invaluable; her enthusiasm is infectious. Polly was proactive in guiding me in the right direction with her wealth of knowledge about the interior design industry, alongside her unique marketing and branding ideas. Polly worked with me on my website concept and liaised with the graphic designers until my website was perfect. I am so grateful to have found her and will be engaging her services again in the future.

THE COMPANY LAUNCH PLAN

When I started my own company, I was unsure how to attract new clients and find the right type of clients for my interior design business. I began working with Polly, who advised me to do the Company Launch Package and it's helped me tremendously. I feel more confident in finding new clients and focusing on what is most beneficial for my business and moving it forward. I cannot thank Polly enough for the help and confidence she has given me. I have also signed up for the three month mentoring package, as I really value Polly's help and opinions with taking my business in the direction I want it to go.

How lucky we were to discover Camberyard by chance! From our first chat with Polly, we knew she was the right person to help us launch our new bespoke furniture business. Her advice has been invaluable in all areas, from our marketing strategy to streamlining our business model and even our website design. Polly is very approachable, flexible and creative and is an absolute pleasure to work with. She has many important contacts in the industry and has even introduced us to potential clients. Without Polly's guidance, we would not be where we are today and we look forward to working together again in the future.

OPL, Bespoke Portuguese furniture brand launching in the UK Completed company launch package, now signed up to a monthly mentoring package

THE COMPANY LAUNCH PLAN

When preparing to launch a new venture outside of my mature photography business, I approached a long-standing, well-respected client of mine for advice on where to source a mentor specialising in the world of design. “You need Polly” was their immediate response. Right from our initial phone call, I felt comfortable that Polly would be able to satisfy my marketing needs. Her skill was to prompt me to recall what I already knew, but to focus the priorities in a logical fashion so that real progress could be made. If we were all as brilliant at marketing as we are at producing our art, then there would be no need for Polly’s input, but regrettably that’s not usually the case. I think of Polly as a collaborator, a knowledgeable resource, someone who knows people who know people - the right people - working with her network of contacts and associates for our common good. Working in isolation in a small business, one’s judgement can often be distracted, that’s when Polly and her ever-so-gentle coaxing, jostling and coercion is so valuable.

She’s been brilliant, always full of enthusiasm and encouragement, which is incredibly infectious, you can’t help but feel excited and eager to develop your business. Polly tailors her approach to each client, giving you confidence that she really understands your business, and what you want to achieve. Her approach is brilliantly pragmatic and practical, looking holistically at every aspect of what you do, which worked incredibly well for me. Polly is always brimming with terrific ideas, she’s absolutely fabulous to work with, constantly coming up with a new angle, or a different approach, opening up lots of opportunities for growth along the way. I’m so pleased I enlisted Polly, she’s been an absolute pleasure to work with, I can’t imagine my business without her now!”

I contacted Polly to discuss my transition from being a structural engineer/designer to an interior and furniture designer. From the first instance, Polly was focused on my personal goals and fully understood my previous situation, tailoring a smart plan for me to achieve a successful transition. Polly not only defined the areas I need to strengthen and planned out review points, she also introduced me to very experienced and supportive professionals in the industry.
