Happy New Year to all our customers! We hope you had a relaxing break over the Christmas holiday.

It’s that time of year to reflect on your successes over the past twelve months and also to make plans for the coming year.

Here’s a look back at 2016 for Primary Image, plus also what our focus will be on during 2017…

Primary Image in 2016

Presented at one of the UK’s biggest web conferences.

Mike gave the closing talk at WordCamp London, which had over 500 people in attendance.

Worked on 20+ new websites.

We’ve really enjoyed working on lots of new websites this year, including launching websites for Rail Forum East Midlands, the National Skills Academy for Rail, and so many more.

Supported the Small Business Saturday bus tour.

Primary Image joined the Small Business Saturday bus tour and ran a drop-in web design surgery for Essex businesses.

Invested in brand-new web servers.

During the autumn Primary Image started using a new, state-of-the-art hosting facility in London, and we’ve invested more in our web hosting platform than any previous year.

Travelled to Vienna for WordCamp Europe.

We went to the largest-ever WordPress conference, held in Austria, joining 2,000 other website developers and users.

Launched new business products.

During 2016 we launched more business-friendly services, such as our Enterprise hosting plan and a unique approach to SEO with our new pick-and-mix package.

Took over 10,000 photos.

Amongst our photography work in 2016, we travelled all across England, Wales and Scotland for the Office of Rail and Road, as well as many local projects.

And designed a new Primary Image website!

Our new-look website was launched at the end of 2016, which is easier to navigate and features cleaner styling. Take a browse!

What’s planned for 2017?

A main focus this year will be on better communication with our customers:

  • A new newsletter to share news and useful tips.
  • Telling you more about the work we do to maintain your websites, including what’s in each software update and any new features available to use.
  • A revamped support area (the old one has been temporarily closed whilst we work on this!).
  • Introducing a new ticketing system for support queries.

We also have a number of new products to launch. More details to be announced soon!

Whatever your own plans for 2017, we’re here to support you in your business marketing. Please get in touch if you want to discuss any ideas.

Wishing you a very successful year ahead!
