Happy New Year! Blimey, we can’t believe how quickly that year went!

Firstly, we want to thank you all for choosing to work with Primary Image during 2017. We really enjoyed working on lots of new and exciting website designs and print projects.

It was certainly a busy year for us, including many behind-the-scenes improvements. In this blog, we’ll review some of our highlights from 2017.

Here's our year in review...

Attended 30+ conferences and events

Keeping our skills bang up-to-date is really important. So we attended some of the biggest web conferences on the calendar, including WordCamp London and BrightonSEO, plus were invited into Twitter’s HQ!

Gave five web design talks

We delivered five web design / development talks during 2017, including two at WordPress London. Topics ranged from making your webpages load faster, to how to “Christmasify” your website (jokingly of course!).

Sponsored WordPress Essex

Primary Image is co-sponsor of the newly-established WordPress Essex group. WordPress is the most popular website software in the world, powering one in four websites on the internet, and its the software we use ourselves!

Sponsored Southend Tech events

We believe it’s important to give back to the community. So we sponsored the drinks for many of the Southend Tech meetings during 2017, which run in our local area. And of course offered to give a talk too!

Improved our customer support

Primary Image launched a brand-new support area, which contains an extensive list of help topics and tutorials. This means our customers can find answers to common questions quicker.

Investment in new technology

In March, we finished moving all our customers onto new web servers. This resulted in our customers’ websites loading 3x faster than before, as well as substantially improved uptime.

Upgraded our customers’ email accounts

At the start of the year, for customers using Primary Image mailboxes for their email, we more than doubled the storage capacity, free-of-charge!

Welcome to our new customers!

A warm welcome to our new customers who have joined us during 2017. Several of these are high-profile international companies and we’re thrilled they’ve put their trust into Primary Image.

Thank you!

We’re very grateful that you chose Primary Image during 2017.

We look forward to working with you and supporting your businesses in 2018. We’ve got lots of new plans lined up for this year too.

Wishing you a very successful year ahead!
