Medusa Hire is the world’s first and ONLY Versace tableware and decor hire company. It adopts the embodiment of Versace’s DNA that is defined by the emblematic Medusa head and gold tones, they each truly capture the essence of luxury.
Medusa Hire translates the Versace allure into a Versace experience by servicing the exquisite demands of high-end events and special occasions. It injects a touch of luxury Italian glamour into your event with signature Versace statement pieces.
Sassy & Co caught up with Medusa Hire and here’s what went down:
What are you currently doing to maintain/grow your business?
Given our business is word of mouth, we have poured a lot of time into social media assets to lift its awareness. We have partnered with social media influencers as well as international celebrities in the entertainment industry like The Jacksons and Boyz II Men just to name a few. We have also established partnerships with world-renowned brands such as Eighy5 Cigars based in Florida in America which has given us the opportunity to cross-promote and grow our following to overseas markets.
What social media platforms do you usually use to increase your brand’s awareness?
Instagram has been a great platform for our brand awareness as it allows our content to easily be shared by our followers. We also feel like our target demographic spends most of their time on Instagram.
What is your experience with paid advertising, like PPC or sponsored content campaigns?
It works to a certain extent but it can only take you so far. For us, what has been the most effective is creating content that can be organically shared by our followers and customer base. As mentioned in the previous question, the best form of advertising is word of mouth – and it’s free! Brand collaborations have also been effective and opened new doors.
What form of marketing has worked well for your business throughout the years?
Since upgrading our website, we have witnessed an abundance of quality leads surface. 80% spend on social media and 20% spend on editorials. Predominately, our marketing is via social media which has given us the best return. However, your social media marketing is only as strong as the content you create and what has set us apart from the rest, is our ability to create great content that is shareable by our followers.
What sort of people usually hire your venue?
People from all walks of life as Versace has no boundaries. From corporate events to birthdays, anniversaries, and everything in between.
How is your business staying afloat during this pandemic?
We have been quite resilient during the pandemic where customers are spending more time than ever online so our sales division has remained strong.
What’s the toughest decision you had to make in the past few months?
Putting our expansion plans on hold with purchasing more venues.
Where do you see Medusa Hire in the next 5 years?
The future of Medusa Hire lies with purchasing multiple venues and adopting all the Versace Home ranges.
What advice would you give to a newbie Entrepreneur setting up their first business?
Do your research! It’s all in due diligence. Continue to always persist no matter what and don’t forget to be the hardest worker in the room.
