Established in 2017, Bull & Wolf Film Co. strives to deliver the highest quality video production services in Cornwall and around the UK. With a full service offering they are able to take client’s ideas from conception through to delivery, and work with the client every step of the way to create original and engaging content.
Director, Joe Turnbull, wants to be at the forefront of drone film and photography offering creative content (“We don’t do boring”) that wasn’t possible before or was prohibitively expensive.
As a start-up business seeking for advice and efficient tools to boost his business, Joe approached Superfast Business Cornwall in 2018. He attended the Technology for Growth workshop and SEO Masterclass and said: “This was a great way to learn how I can improve my online presence and decrease the loading time of the website.”
Joe was not too happy with the current Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and finance tool he used, so Digital Business Adviser, Dan Piper, looked at more effective options. Joe has now started to use Insightly, a simple to use cloud based CRM system.
“By using this software Joe is able to track, monitor and evaluate customer data and allow for better interaction with existing and future customers with better focused marketing and facilitating to have more detailed conversations with clients supporting future growth.” explains Dan.
In order to improve the speed of his website, Joe wanted to know more about downscaling his images and videos, learn about the legal policies he would need and how he can improve the SEO of his website. He was able to talk to our ICT specialist, Sara Pugh from Eightwire and learnt a great deal about how to improve the customer journey on his website and how to use Google Analytics and SEO tools available for WordPress.
Joe is also looking to migrate over to a finance package, Dan recommended for his business and WordPress site and is exploring Xero to save him time and move away from manual spread sheets. As a sole trader he is looking to increase his turnover by 50% next year and plans to bring in freelancers to help meet additional demand.
“The Superfast Business Cornwall team have really helped my online presence on the website and with the more efficient tools I am saving a lot of time to focus on things like digital marketing and entering film competitions to increase my profile.” says Joe.
Funded by ERDF, Superfast Business Cornwall provides a fully funded programme of support to help businesses understand, adopt and exploit digital technology for growth. Delivered by a small team of experienced Digital Business Advisers, the service offers 1-2-1 impartial advice, website reviews, workshops for small groups and advice on connectivity to Superfast Broadband.
Eligible businesses in Cornwall can still join the fully funded programme until Spring 2019.
