Unlike so many businesses, we were extremely fortunate not to have needed to furlough any of our team this year. While our team was busy working from home, we used the opportunity of the office being empty to carry out a full refurbishment. We built a large meeting / training room for internal & client meetings, plus a fully-equipped staff room & kitchen. To improve internet speeds and phone call quality, we also invested in a new leased line and VOIP phone system. All of the changes created lots more space – leaving us plenty of room for expansion.

In September, we finally put our own new website live – replacing the one Diana created back in 2017!! We will be adding a Tools & Resources section to it in the New Year, which we hope will be really useful to all of our clients.

In October, we received notification that we had – for the 3rd time – been listed as one of the Top 3 Website Designers in Plymouth for providing consistent high-quality service in your area of business. It was really super to receive this recognition again for our team’s efforts.

And, so to 2022!

We’re all done with office building works & recruitment. Our talented team is in place and raring to go – after a well-deserved break at Christmas! We are so excited to continue working with & supporting our lovely clients with their many & very varied projects.

We have won a very exciting new client, (we can’t say who at the moment) who we will be building a new international site for – due to go live early Spring – we can’t wait to share this with you!

At the end of 2021, we soft-launched a new & very exciting product developed especially for the ambitious owners of trades businesses, plumbers, gardeners, electricians, plasterers… called the “Trades Digital Toolkit” under our Build My Trade Business brand. Check out our new website: https://buildmytradebusiness.co.uk/

Our first Build My Trade Business client was the lovely Freeflow Plumbing & Heating – who contacted us earlier in the year. Their website with new branding was put live mid-October. Katie and Ryan were delighted with the results! And, we are so excited to start work with Luke at The Tree Surgery Company Limited in January.

We will be rolling the “Trades Digital Toolkit” out across the UK from January. Having worked with many, many trades businesses over the years – helping them to grow by making the most of their online presence, we decided that this would be a key area of focus for our New Business efforts in 2022. Watch this space!

We would like to wish all of our clients a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!
