It only seems like five minutes ago that I was writing about the fact that we needed to move offices as we had run out of space. Even as I wrote “Growth of the business over recent months has meant that we can no longer continue in our cozy home and we are moving to a bigger office” I wondered if it was the right thing to do as it was a major commitment just doubling the size of the office. In fact it was the end of June 2013 when we actually moved offices.
Just over twelve months on and I find myself sat here writing again that we have run out of space and need to move – again.
Over the past year we have had an extraordinary time adding on new staff members, expanding the skillsets of the business and bringing in more new customers than ever before whilst retaining those that have been with us from the start. Search Engine Optimisation has moved on but the principles we started with are still holding true; namely that there is no short cut and the job is about professional marketing, not about how you can cheat the index with a dodgy back linking strategy.
We’ve added three new websites to our portfolio and have another two in the pipeline as well. This on top of the client sites we’ve built and worked on as well.
So next Friday 1st August we will be moving to our new home, still on The Heath Business & Technical Park but to an office more than double the size of the one we are in today.
We are still eschewing the ‘glass and chrome’ offices as our view remains the same; we need functionality not fancy offices and it’s more important to deliver value to our customers than to have shiny offices to impress them.
So please bear with us over the next couple of weeks as we prepare to move, cable up our new offices and then finally move a week on Friday. We are hoping to make this a seamless process and will keep you informed on our progress.
