With his Screenwriting degree, plus a background in filmmaking, radio presenting, and theatre, he has gained plenty of experience in planning and organising, and shows great attention to detail.

Fruity Llama’s Continuing Business Growth Signals a Bright Future

Since Fruity Llama was founded just over 2 years ago, the company continues to thrive. With the addition of a new employee signalling the strength of their business growth. 

Following their remarkable achievement in 2022, winning the 'New Business of the Year' award at the Hive Business Awards, and most recently being selected as finalists in the 'Design Award' category at the Red Rose Awards 2024, Fruity Llama continue to help businesses stand out in their field, with a range of custom digital marketing strategies and a customer first approach.

Fruity Llama’s Founders and Owners, Stephen and Stephanie Ashcroft have big plans for the future, with these awards being early recognition for their work and dedication to deliver a fantastic return on investment for their customers.

As a Digital Marketing company, Fruity Llama offers companies a full digital marketing partnership to help them stand out in their field. Award winning services include: Web Design and Development, SEO, Social Media Management, LinkedIn Lead Generation, PPC, Graphic Design & Print, as well as Digital Billboard Advertising.

Been there, done that…

Fruity Llama’s co-founder, Stephanie Ashcroft, has a proven track record when it comes to running businesses, as demonstrated by her success with her hair and beauty salon, The Brookside.  A business she kick-started at the age of 19 and still runs today. 

Starting the salon from scratch and growing it into the powerhouse it is today serving over 400 customers every month, alongside her work with Fruity Llama, are just a couple of reasons she was recognised by Lancashire Business View as a Rising Star for Women in Business under 36.

Stephen's Creative Drive 

The savvy-business skills continue with fellow co-founder, Stephen Ashcroft, known for his attention to detail and drive for perfection, he has always harboured a passion for design and creativity.

Before launching Fruity Llama, Stephen worked for eight years at The Cardboard Box Company, utilising his meticulous eye-for-detail within packaging design. He is now living his passion for design and is committed to generating a high return on investment for local business. 

Fruity Llama may have started with a focus on websites, but business growth has seen Fruity Llama evolve into a full-service digital marketing company catering to a wide range of clients, from startups to large-scale enterprises across the UK.

Since starting their business, Stephen and Stephanie have seen early success, with one customer getting a £100,000 ROI within 6 months, and another securing £10,000 per month in recurring revenue in just 4 months.

With the addition of a new team member, Fruity Llama continues its plans for business growth.

"We are thrilled to see Fruity Llama grow and evolve. Each new team member brings unique strengths, and Nick is no exception. His background and skills will undoubtedly enhance our strategic output and allow us to take on more projects”

says Stephen (Owner).

Stephanie adds:

"Our vision for Fruity Llama has always been to create a place where creativity and business acumen come together to deliver exceptional results for our clients. We're proud of our journey so far and excited to grow our team further."

As Fruity Llama continues to expand, we remain committed to pushing the boundaries of digital marketing and delivering unparalleled results for our clients.
