Case Studies from July 2021

Zaremba Marsden Ltd

Zaremba Marsden Ltd is a serene retreat set in the Derbyshire Dales on the edge of the beautiful Peak District National Park. Business owners Marta and Stuart offer a luxurious bed and breakfast with a nutritious twist set in a peaceful and calm environment where guests can relax away from the fast pace and distractions of everyday life. In addition to this, the duo also offer nutrition and wellbeing packages which cover four main areas: sleep, hydration, nutrition and physical activity. 

The business have been on the full D2N2 support journey as they were initially supported by the D2 Business Starter Programme which served as a springboard for the launch of the business, which took a turn from Programme and Operations Management Consultancy to a more sustainable and pertinent sector of nutrition and wellbeing. As the business developed they were introduced to a D2N2 Growth Hub business adviser who was able to enroll them onto the D2N2 Growth Hub Programme and provide more tailored support recommendations. This included taking advantage of the extensive webinar programme.

We have been blown away by the expertise, the structure and the overall content of the D2N2 offering. It provided us with a solid foundation for establishing and securing a successful and profitable business going forward. It truly feels that D2N2 group are there just for you and want to ensure you succeed in every step along the way. The professionals running the workshops clearly articulate processes from initialising a business idea, writing a business plan to marketing, advertising, recruiting, financing, networking and so much more. Having now been involved with this programme for over three months, we can honestly say that we have found a go-to group. In our opinion, this is the one stop shop that can give you everything and more than you will ever need to start and run a small or medium-sized enterprise.

The support they received from the D2N2 Growth Hub was two-fold, their Growth Hub Adviser was able to support them in upskilling the business in a period of downtime by suggesting the D2N2 Growth hub digital marketing webinars and action planning workshops. 

The Covid-19 Pandemic has given us the time to refocus our brand on delivering a level of individual service not seen anywhere outside London. All our services are bespoke, offer exceptional value and deliver fantastic results. The pandemic has allowed us the time to develop a new and innovative range of services that will continue to strengthen our brand. We have been fortunate to receive digital marketing support from the D2N2 Growth Hub, which is giving us the skills and knowledge to capitalise on this innovative approach and effectively reach our target audience.

HP Health Group

HP Health Group is a health and wellbeing company based in Nottingham and covering the Midlands.The business established during the first Coronavirus lockdown after they experienced the difficulties that friends and family had who were struggling to maintain their health and wellbeing, especially with the many changes that disrupted normal daily routines at that time. They believe that it is of utmost importance that people are healthy at work, both physically and mentally and they want to do this at the client’s convenience. Their services include in-house Physiotherapy clinics, health and wellbeing days including (Physiotherapy, Psychology, Nutrition and Personal Training consultations), in house exercise classes, a wellbeing subscription service and more. 

Due to starting the business in the middle of a pandemic, HP Health found it a challenge to reach out to or meet new clients. Webinars provided by the D2N2 Growth Hub on topics such as marketing, advertising, and using LinkedIn have therefore been particularly valuable. As a result of the guidance and knowledge gained, the business have since begun to formulate their own marketing strategy. In addition, they have been able to continuously update and improve their website, utilising information from webinars on SEO optimisation among others, to ensure that the website is of a high standard and reaching as many new customers as possible online.

The growth hub has assisted not only in developing the business, but also myself as a business owner. As someone who is new to running a business, I could find myself spending hours trying to find information which could all be found in a single webinar provided by the growth hub. I have therefore been able to invest the time I have saved in developing the business further, implementing positive changes from the knowledge I acquired, which have since started to become apparent.
