Digital creative agency Makilo celebrates 5 years at Milton Keynes Business Centre. Maliko’s ability to think strategically and nurture collaborative relationships, in combination with support from Capital Space, has enabled them to reach this fantastic milestone. We’ve spoken to the company’s co-founder, Tom Barrington, to hear about how their business is progressing and their tips and tricks for success.

Offering strategic thinking to their customers

Maiklo, based at Milton Keynes Business Centre , was created as its founders noticed a small gap in digital marketing agencies and what they had to offer.

“We are a small creative agency and we work on all sorts of web apps, websites and digital projects. Our aim is to assist other agencies by providing them support and strategic thinking to give them a competitive advantage.”

Business accommodation which helped them grow

Tom was drawn to the Milton Keynes Business Centre as he liked how the centre was positioned in the heart of Milton Keynes.

“We have a strong client base in Milton Keynes, and it is a city we really want to grow our profile in. As a business, we wanted to be much more involved in the Milton Keynes community and were looking to grow our networks there, so when we found this business centre we knew it was meant to be!”

Another aspect Tom found very appealing was the flexibility to make the space their own.

“We host workshops for a lot of our clients, so it was important to have a space that we could tailor to our needs so that we can work collaboratively. We were able to do that here and looking out to the beautiful woodland area is an added bonus!”

Secrets to success

Running a business successfully is never easy, but with 5 years of experience under his belt, we asked Tom to share his tips and tricks for success.

“The piece of advice I would give to anyone is to make sure you build meaningful relationships with your clients. Having a strong connection based on trust and communication not only helps you to have a better understanding of the brand and deliver better work, but also means you grow customer retention and your repeat purchase rate.”

Evaluating business performance

Makilo are looking to grow further within the Milton Keynes community and hope to see their client base continuing to grow in years to come. They also have a new product launching soon.

“We are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Makilo. Our focus now is on Milton Keynes and growing our client base in the area. We also have a product launch coming soon and will be running a launch event later this year. We can’t share too much now but watch this space, exciting things are coming!”

We are very proud of how our customer has run such a successful business from Milton Keynes Business Centre and look forward to supporting their growth in the next year and beyond.
