Peasholm Park Vegan B&B offer visitors to Scarborough a completely vegan holiday experience. We caught up with the owners to talk about their experiences and what tips they have for anyone thinking of launching a vegan business.
A lot of big brand names are moving into the vegan sector at the moment making it harder for smaller vegan businesses to compete. In this video David explains how you CAN compete if you build your company on the ethics that vegans care about.
Who are our vegan business experts Lisa and David?
Vegan Business Tribe was founded by Lisa and David from Promote Vegan – a vegan consultancy helping businesses better understand the vegan consumer and succeed in the vegan marketplace.
Lisa and David also write the monthly business column for the UK’s biggest Vegan magazine, Vegan Food & Living as well as being the official UK agents for The Vegan Society’s Vegan Trademark.
They launched Vegan Business Tribe as a place for them to be able to offer support for smaller vegan businesses – and give you all the benefit of the knowledge they have gained working for large brands and businesses in a collective way.
We’ve made our content free to support as many vegan businesses as we can whilst the current lockdowns are preventing business from operating in full.
What's the latest on Vegan Business Tribe?
Faced with being unable to trade as a vegan hairstylist because of the Covid-19 lockdown, Vieri Wikes went from having an idea for a new business to getting paying customers within a couple of weeks. David talks to Vieri to find out how she managed to get a business off the ground so quickly by following her mantra ‘good is good enough’.
Beth is an artist who makes what looks like antique anatomical studies out of all-vegan fabrics which you can buy to add a little macabre humour to your life! However, she also uses her creations to open up conversations about veganism with the public who see her work. Lisa talks to Beth about how she first tested, and then created, such a unique business idea.
To build a successful business, you need a group of followers who absolutely cannot live without your product and believe in your vegan mission. These people will help you spread your message and attract more people who also love what you are doing. They will become your brand ambassadors. They will become your ‘tribe’.
Before the world got turned upside down with Coronavirus, Vegan Business Tribe was going to launch as a paid-for content site. However – in the few months since we’ve opened up the site for free to help business during the lockdown, we have been overwhelmed by the amount of humbling feedback. How can we put up a paywall if that means only a fraction of vegan businesses would get access to this content that’s helping so many?
Rainbow Sweets and Treats unboxing – how to make a great impression when someone receives your product
Not only have Rainbow really understood what their customers care about, with plastic-free packaging and palm oil-free sweets, but they have put a lot of effort in to the impression you get when you receive your online order. Watch Lisa’s unboxing to learn how they did it.
In this video, we talk with ethical branding expert Will Saunders about how to brand a vegan business. Will has helped many vegan businesses through his agency Good Will Studios, and explains how you can create a brand that speaks to your customers and the tools you can use to find your own brand voice.
There are lots of ways you can help our growing community, from telling other vegan businesses about VBT to helping us organise a virtual meet-up with other local vegan businesses in your area. David explains how you can get more involved, and promote your own vegan business at the same time.
Maybe you’re starting a vegan business but you’ve spent ages inching towards getting it ready to launch. Or perhaps you already have a vegan business but it’s not flying like you know it could be. If you’re full of ideas but don’t have the time to do them all well then it’s time to make some changes.
