Welcome to the
Vegan Business Tribe Podcast
With David Pannell
042 – SPECIAL: Live from Vegan Camp Out!
Grab your tent and join Lisa and David live from Vegan Camp Out as they introduce you to some of the amazing names in vegan business they met at the event – and share what they learned from the weekend’s headline guests: Joey Carbstrong, Chris Packham and Russell Brand.
041 – Does email marketing work?
Emailing marketing can produce a reliable stream of new customers, but not if you go about it in the wrong way. David takes a look at how email marketing really works and how you can use it to nurture your contacts into customers.
040 – How to get your business out there (by actually getting yourself out there!)
Sometimes the best way to get yourself out there is to do literally that! In this episode we look at the different ways you can get your company noticed by moving away from both your computer keyboard and your comfort zone.
039 – Why is Cadbury Bournville now not vegan? The dangers of ‘accidentally vegan’ products
Chocolate giant Cadbury recently caused uproar when they updated the ingredients on their ‘Bournville Giant Chocolate Buttons’ to include milk. But Cadbury says they haven’t changed the actual recipe – the milk has always been there due to heavy cross-contamination. So what does this mean for other ‘accidentally vegan’ products?
038 – How to prevent burnout (and what to do if you’re already there)
It’s easy to get stuck in the trap of working longer and longer hours until you get to the point where you feel that you can’t keep going, but you can’t afford to take time off to recharge either. How do you prevent this, and what do you do if you’re already there?
037 – How to scale-up your vegan business
When you talk to the founders of vegan companies who have successfully scaled up their businesses, you start to see a lot in common with how they did it. We look at how three vegan businesses successfully scaled up and what we can learn from how they did it.
036 – Live Vegan Business Clinic with Lisa & David
We take you to a live vegan business clinic with four Vegan Business Tribe members. Four members, one problem or question each and let’s see if we can answer them!
035 – How to deal with anti-vegan comments on your social media posts
If you promote your business on social media, then at some point you will get someone writing an anti-vegan comment. Should you just delete these comments or should you try to engage with them to bust some vegan myths and plant some seeds?
034 – Are you using non-vegan language in your business?
Lots of the words, phrases and metaphors we use in business have some very non-vegan origins. For example, should we be comfortable talking about our ‘brand’ when the term originates from burning a mark of ownership into the skin of an animal?
033 – What’s going on with Oatly?
How does a company that subverted the dairy industry now have the same people who championed their mission calling for a boycott of their product? And can a company scale up and grow whilst still getting all the ethical decisions right?
032 – Becoming your own boss: going from employed to having your own vegan business (with Trevor Banerjee)
What’s getting in the way of you launching your own business? Is it a lack of time, is it a lack of money, or do you just not know how to do it? I’m joined by business coach Trevor Banerjee where we discuss the realities of starting your own business.
031 – How to create your elevator pitch
How do you get someone excited about your business when you’ve only got a really short amount of time to explain what you do? Maybe you’ve got 60 seconds to introduce your company at a networking event. Or perhaps you’ve got just the time it takes an elevator to go between two floors to tell your dream contact what it is you do. What do you say?!
