What a year. It’s been an amazing journey over the last twelve months and there is so much in the pipeline it’s hard to know where to begin!
This time last year we published this blog post in which we outlined our plan to grow the business to £1,000,000 turnover by the end of 2019. One year on and we are on target to achieve this mark. In fact, if everything goes according to plan (and you know what they say about the best-laid plans….) then we could even do it a year early!
When we set the business up in 2011 in a small office with no customers but big aspirations, the aim was always to provide a service that customers would want, value and gain benefit from. Six years on and we have hundreds of successes behind us and customers still with us who have been with us almost from the start.
In the last year, we’ve seen more of our customers get more number one positions on Google than ever before. We’ve expanded the team so there are now nine of us and we’re still recruiting and we’ve retained our Google Partner status for the fourth year running.
The team gained more Google qualifications than ever before, we took on a Head of Sales and we won the Halton Business Awards Marketing Excellence Award. We’ve even shifted our social media followers from under 1,000 to over 10,000 in total.
It’s been amazing. But the plans for the next year are even more exciting!
Right now, are looking to recruit two new technical heads for our office, to add to our in-house SEO and PPC expertise and we will be taking on more office space in the near future. We are also recruiting for two more sales people in the next six months.
On top of this, we have a new Aqueous Digital website under construction (watch this space!) and we are investing heavily in a training programme for the business. We are also investing in IT, infrastructure and unified communications to help us provide an even better service to our customers.
With all that going on you’ll understand it when we say that today, in the office, it will be a low-key affair. No streamers, bunting, cakes or champagne. But we do have big plans in the pipeline for the next two weeks so follow us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to see what adventures we get up to!
