Celebrating their 20th year in business specialising in selling guitars, keyboards and pianos, this is their 7th major award.
One Man Band owned by humbled David Cooper gave special thanks to customers in Banbury and across the world for taking the time to send in their votes.
“We are so delighted to have been voted for his award, it’s hugely illustrious in our industry and we were up against some very strong competition from other established companies.”
One band band has also truly embraced the internet.
“We realised after a sales conference two years ago that videos were an excellent way to engage with online customers. We knew that by helping first time buyers and musicians looking to upgrade their equipment was what we did best – so we created the necessary website and a YouTube channel offering expert advice and demonstrating instruments. It’s been a huge success.
“If you own a bricks and mortar store, you have to give customers a reason to visit and, more importantly, come back. If you can inspire new customers and retain existing ones then it gives you the opportunity to sustain a successful business.
“The store also offers lessons on saxophone, guitar, drums, clarinet, bass, singing and piano. and gives music lessons to more than 100 students each week in one of its six teaching studios.”
