This is the first post that I am making which is turning the spotlight onto one of my customers who I built a website for some time ago.
Taking the honour of being the first customer to step into this light is Sharon Hindley of Cheeky Little Monkeyz.
Cheeky Little Monkeyz are retailers of children's character clothing and accessories, and they were the first full on eCommerce website that LS25 Web Design built for a client (always a trailblazer, Sharon ;)).
That’s enough about LS25 Web Design, who is better to tell you about her business than Sharon herself and I caught up with her to find out more.
How long has Cheeky Little Monkeyz been trading for?
I set the business up in July 2014 and initially started publicising it via Facebook which is where I started to generate my first sales of the clothing and accessory range that I then stocked. At this time, I was just building my range and as the product lines grew, I soon realised that I needed to invest in building a professional web presence to compliment what I was doing on social media and help my business grow.
What is your background and how did the business come about?
Previously have been an NNEB (Nursery Nursing Examinations Board) professional working in nurseries and schools, as well as taking on customer service roles and all of my previous experiences have helped me to reach a point where I was able to step out on my own and create the business that I have done.
As with any other person setting up for themselves, there is a risk involved in doing so but, for me it was a calculated risk which I balanced against being able to spend quality time with my family with is of paramount importance to me.
I have also recently joined a local charity group to help with fundraising for CRUK (Cancer Research UK) a charity close to my heart.
What locations does Cheeky Little Monkeyz cover (i.e. where do you deliver to)?
Cheeky Little Monkeyz provides our products to customers throughout the United Kingdom via our website but we also sell our products at various pop-up shops within hospitals and at indoor/outdoor markets, craft fayres, private offices and other events etc across the North West. My biggest event to date was at the UK Baby and Toddler Show at the Liverpool Echo Arena earlier this year.
To me it is important to ensure that we are creating a brand that is visible in as many areas as possible in order to continually raise our profile.
Is there anything that sets you apart from your competitors?
Balancing quality with affordability is of prime importance for us. I believe that, if we do this, it will ensure that we have satisfied customers who will then look no further than Cheeky Little Monkeyz in the future when they are again looking to purchase children's character clothing and accessories.
This is why we only provide quality products and we constantly offer them at competitive prices. If you were to look at our website today, you will find that there are a number of products that we are offering promotions on, and this alongside our already affordable prices.
So, if you’re looking for great quality, affordable children’s character clothing, look no further than Cheeky Little Monkeyz and head over to their website today.
