Welcome to the
Vegan Business Tribe Podcast
With David Pannell
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!
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?
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?
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.
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?!
We follow-up with two of our members on the back of their successful crowdfunding campaigns. David finds out how they decided how much money to raise, how they kept the momentum going through their campaigns and what they would do differently if they were trying to hit bigger targets.
If you think you are already a niche company just because you are a vegan company then I’m afraid you’re at least five years too late. ‘Vegan’ is just the sector you are in and if you want to find your niche, then you are going to have to dig deeper.
1 in 5 people in the UK cut down on eating meat as a result of the pandemic. What does that mean for the meat industry? What does it mean for consumer buying behaviour? And what does it mean for your vegan business?
Why do so many of us absolutely HATE selling and how do you get over it? In this episode, David takes a look at how you can reframe ‘selling’ into ‘helping’ – because if your product genuinely solves someone’s problem then it’s your duty to help them become a customer.
For some companies, vegan fairs are one of their main routes of selling their products to the public, others do it to build an audience, but one of the main reasons to do your local fair is to get real one-on-one engagement with customers that you won’t get anywhere else.
