ADVICE ON INNOVATION
100% recommendable! We’ve had monthly mentoring sessions to set goals and follow them up, which is like going to therapy. Individual sessions with specialists in social networks, Google Ads, sales, copywriter, SEO and analytics. UXLab service, which is 10 out of 10. Training. In short, we’ve had access to resources and feedback from experts that have offered us new perspectives which would have been impossible to get from other sources.
At a very difficult time, when we were seeing that our business was unable to carry out its activity, the support from Barcelona Activa was crucial. Their help enabled us to analyse the situation with a critical eye, with positivity and hope, but also with our feet on the ground. Their advice helped us to work out, from all the options available, which would be the most fruitful, and thanks to this, we have been able to turn our business around and keep going. We are very grateful.
For me it's been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, I’ve learned so much with the advisor they’ve given me! As well as learning more at an economic level. Also, all the work they've done with me on social networks, for learning communication techniques and improving my business. It’s been a huge support at an emotional level and has opened a door to learning new things to improve my business. I couldn’t have done it without the advice I’ve received.
It’s been a fantastic experience. Right from the start, our advisors were able to put themselves in our shoes and understand what we want to achieve. They’ve been monitoring us closely on an ongoing basis, and have never avoided the difficult questions we’ve had to ask ourselves. We’ve really felt like they want our project to be a success as much as we do. We’re really grateful for their assistance.
I am self-employed and my day-to-day work doesn’t always leave me with space to come up with effective strategies or to observe more objectively the profitability of my actions. The advice offered by Barcelona Activa's business service has been a huge support, helping to give my business a boost. I’ve been able to put in place a strategic plan and define a roadmap, reconsider my objectives, prioritising the most important actions and finding new business opportunities.
I’m self-employed and I have my own business offering cultural routes around Barcelona. Barcelona Activa is carrying out excellent follow-up of my business: from boosting my presence on social networks to management and sales strategies. Their job is not only to improve statistics and increase turnover, or adapt the way I work to the new and complex scenarios, but they also, with a great deal of sensitivity, empathy and good judgement, manage to boost my self-esteem so I am able to push ahead with the changes.
The experience has been very positive, we’ve been able to optimise the company’s internal procedures, learn lots about accounting, put in place a cash flow monitoring and optimisation plan, find new commercial opportunities and come up with the best strategies for making the most of them.
