"We looked to Sophie for some advice in bringing our Eco-Cup product to market. She has supported us by providing a thorough understanding of the industry, who to target and how to approach potential buyers. The research project she completed was to a high standard, and provided us with a lot of brilliant information which we will use to take our business to the next level. We would absolutely recommend Sophie to anyone looking for business support within the retail industry."
Emanuel Andjelic, Head of Retail, Mr Bamboo Cup
"Sophie was a pleasure to work with. She listened carefully, understood what I needed and offered great advice. The competitor and market research work she completed for me was delivered promptly and in great detail. Sophie was very friendly and I never felt like she was chasing me to pay. Exactly how business should be conducted."
Richard Finlay, Founder, Navy or Grey
"Before I started working with Byrcollective, my business lacked direction which was evident in the stock I was purchasing. It didn’t align with the original vision I had when I started and I was confusing both myself and my potential customer. My conversion rate was low, and my marketing strategy was ineffective. Within a few weeks, Sophie had focused my business so that I had a clear direction which helped when deciding what products to purchase and brands to work with. I took on board Sophie’s suggestions with regards to marketing and my conversion rate doubled. Sophie has provided me with valuable skills which I will take forward to grow my business. Anyone starting out, or who feels lost or overwhelmed should really look to work with Sophie."
Rachael Grieves, Founder, Emmy & Sebby
"I had the amazing opportunity to work with Sophie, after having won a 1:1 session. With her detailed and broad knowledge of the retail industry, I was able to begin defining my business strategy and start to lay a strong foundation, for which my small brand can build upon. Sophie also offered me guidance for potential marketing opportunities and PR options, which I had not before considered. I would highly recommend Sophie’s support for any startup brand. Thank you!"
Lily Makinson, Founder, Lilymayluxe
