Business Mentoring, Business Marketing
Location Co began its life 12-months ago by a team of surfing enthusiasts who were looking to market and sell surf related products. As part of their core product offer, Location Co created a range of surf waxes to suit the best surfing conditions, e.g. cold, warm and tropical water temperatures.
Location Co Director, Mr Matt Bishop has incredible passion and knowledge for the surf industry but doesn’t have the experience within start-up businesses and how to market them. Matt needed a Business Mentor who would listen to his ideas and advise him on the best way to implement these. Matt needed guidance to commercialise his business model, and then build the go-to-market strategy.
Robert Durrant from rev™ Sales & Marketing Acceleration was engaged by Location Co as their Business Mentor and Coach. Each month, Matt met with Rob to develop and refine the Location Co business model, their marketing, their tactics strategy, as well as their sales and distribution model.
By combining Location Co’s amazing surf products and passion with the business marketing and sales expertise provided by Robert Durrant, Location Co was able to grow their business by 600% in the first 3-months. Matt now has a solid growth plan, marketing, and sales tools in place, as well as the business mentoring support that allows him to engage and onboard new retail customers with confidence.
