You Starting Something?

The bit about us:

Blue Strawberry Elephant Ltd evolved from a business start up in 1980.

Born in a recession – and working through 12 official quarters of recession later –  we know why lots of people are thinking about setting up their own businesses right now.  
You’ll not find any company with more experience in helping to launch the creative marketing of a startup.

No commitment

This is not a survey – if you have come this far and go no further – we hope these questions help your thought process.

If you do want to know more – a chat costs nothing.

Questions you should ask yourself:

1 What kind of Business:

Will your business sell only to other businesses; sell exclusively to the general public, or both. Define that first. Don’t prevaricate. Find that simple starting point.

2 Experience:

Is this a business you already know? Something you’ve done while working for someone else or something completely new you are trying?

Has it always been a dream to run your own business or something you feel you’re being slightly forced into due to redundancy, or simply a result of hating your job?

3 Expectations:

Are you ambitious? Do you want to build a company that will create employment, be well known and give you a great sense of satisfaction in what you build, allowing you a future asset that you can pass on to the next generation or sell to assure you of a comfortable retirement?


Is this a Lifestyle Business that allows you complete flexibility, only working when you want to, putting family and fun ahead of work – while still enjoying what you do to make a living?

Don’t say “Both”

4 Success:

What is your Unique Proposition?

What used to be known as a USP or Unique Sales Proposition was one or more things that made your product or service different from your competitors.


What makes your product or service unique to a market place; meaning you have no immediate competition.

Define that or those.

What one of our many happy clients had to say...

“There are many things I could thank the team at Blue Strawberry Elephant for as I was setting up my novel cycling performance business during 2015, but the most important to me is that they demonstrated real customer focus. There was a commitment to my success – a vested interest if you will, and that is so important to every business irrespective of size and budget. Whether you work for a multinational corporation (I did) or are a start-up entrepreneur (I am), by understanding my needs and aspirations, Dave, Marc and Joss have helped me punch well above my starting weight with creative design, branding and collateral, to reflect the essence of Skyhook Coaching Services. When you see that understanding come through in the end products, delivered to spec and dead-lines, you know your agency is much more than just another design house – thanks guys! What else could anyone want?!”
