Happy New Year 2020

Looking Back

Britweb enjoyed it’s 13th year in business during 2019 and there was much to celebrate, as we welcomed some high-profile and interesting new clients on board.

A new website for The Big Issue Foundation for example, was especially pleasing and an enjoyable project. I really do like engaging with the charity sector.

Towards the end of the year, we completed an audit and have subsequently been hired to provide a raft of digital marketing services for Elekta. These giants of the health sector make a difference to so many lives around the world providing radiation therapy, radiosurgery, related equipment and clinical management for the treatment of cancer and brain disorders. It was an absolute pleasure to visit their prestigious offices and have the chance to view some of these life-changing machines. We look forward to working with Elekta into 2020 and assisting their extensive in-house teams where we can.

In celebrating new additions to our client base, I must not forget to mention our long-standing clients who have been with us for years and continue to keep us busy! Boxfit passed five years working with us in June 2019 and the year saw them reach a huge financial milestone with online sales on the latest website iteration and lots of positives like the best Black Friday ever!

Bluecoat Sports in Christ’s Hospital are another of our key accounts who have now been clients for 6 years and, we’re proud to continue being their marketing and online partners.

There are many more I could mention of course and we value, appreciate and undertake with earnest each and every piece of work we do, from small updates to a local SME’s website to those campaigns for the big multinationals.

2019 also saw us launch our client portal, the entry point for clients to raise tickets or change requests and read up to date information and access manuals to assist with updates.

We also welcomed Fran Elliott as apprentice Project Manager to assist Grant Ellis and she’s fitted right into the Britweb team and been a great addition.

Looking Forward

Now that 2019 has gone and the festive break is over, it’s time to look forward to a fresh 12 months and relish what they may bring! We have a new member of the DM team starting in a few days. Alistair Knight comes in as a Digital Marketing Apprentice, but with a difference. Having already completed 10 months of his course elsewhere, not only does he have a sound basis and understanding of our industry, he has an evident passion to learn more coupled with some personal projects in the past to prove his undoubted skills. I am sure that he will continue to develop under the tutelage of Sam, Seb, Allie and Fran. They make a fantastic DM team with a wealth of diverse skills!

The equally gifted development team will be working on a myriad of diverse projects as per usual. We are undertaking some bespoke work for Wine GB, building a new site for long-standing local taxi firm AAA2B and hope to be working on the new site for Southern Comms soon, another of our long term clients.

The list goes on and we all look forward to getting well and truly stuck in and making a difference. We will, of course, be keeping an eye on changes and trends in this ever-changing industry too and, I’m sure, will get some away team days as well. Perhaps another paintball expedition where I get ganged up on!

I wish all other businesses a very busy 2020 and should you need any assistance with your online presence, please do drop us a line on 01403 261491 or email info@britweb.co.uk
