The Story.

Innovator(s)

The Blueprint KC is a family-owned small business offering boutique and custom clothing. They are located in Gladstone, Missouri and have been open for over a year.

Problem

How might we attract more attention in order to gain more customers?

Solution

We plan on focusing on growing advertising, both physical and electronic. We plan to implement changes within the building, as well through different social media outlets. With more advertising, hopefully this will build attention in possible clients.

Target Market

Most of the products offered cater to women, but The Blueprint KC would like to expand to offer men's clothing as well. At the moment, women are their target market.

Societal Impact

The Blueprint KC is a small-business, but they are also family-owned, black-owned, women-owned, wholesale customers of other small businesses, and recipients of the G.I.F.T KC Grant. Clearly, The Blueprint KC cares about their community and wants to improve themselves for the benefit of their customers.

Next Steps

We are asking for funding in order to carry out these changes. The timeline and changes itself are simple and relatively fast, so an investment of $700-$1,200 would allow for our idea to come to life.

Reflection

Many companies today rely on marketing in order to gain customers, so having these skills will hopefully benefit us in the long term.

Use of Backer Contributions

We are not currently accepting contributions from our voters. This pitch is part of the ProX competition for $5,000. All of the money will be used to buy supplies, materials, and advertisements through social media.
