Cornish businesses need to empower their brand to sell themselves strongly and creatively in international markets. “Having a finely honed, translated website is key” according to GetSet For Growth client, Anja Jones, of boutique agency, Anja Jones Translation.
Anja established her company 4 years ago after noticing local hotels needed translation services. Since then, her cloud-based business in Newquay has grown significantly and now has global reach. With over 70 accounts and a network of 35-40 translators dotted around Europe and North America, Anja’s agency is benefiting from globalisation and handles projects for international brands Kobo, Foursquare, Uber, Indiegogo, and Vimeo. Turnover doubled to just under £1/2million in 2014.
GetSet For Growth experts provided Anja with 1:1 business finance and marketing/sales insights. Anja said: “They helped me look at specific business challenges I was facing. The process of cashflow forecasting helped me decide whether to take on an additional member of staff.”
“I’d recommend GetSet For Growth for their 1:1 hands on practical advice,” Anja continued. “It’s been so useful to be able to ask their experts very specific questions and I always walked away thinking I have my answer. They were a perfect fit for my business, as finance and marketing were the two main challenges we faced as a small company.”
Anja now employs an additional member of staff in the county and has a 12-month marketing plan in place to achieve her growth ambitions.
