Looking Back at the Past Year
Hi everyone, Chris here, it’s been a good while since I’ve written one of these more personal update-style blogs!
As of last week, I’ve officially been working at HA Hosting for more than a year now! It doesn’t seem that long ago since I first started! How time flies when you’re having fun, or so the saying goes.
I thought I’d take a moment to briefly chat about how this last year has gone for me and the marketing side of HA Hosting as a whole.
A Quick Recap
Just to quickly remind you how things started, a year ago I was hired to help HA Hosting with marketing, whilst also being trained by Watertight Marketing with monthly masterclasses. The goal was to help fix our marketing overall – think less about sales and more how we present ourselves generally (website, social media, emails etc).
How Are Things Now?
This is a very brief look at how we’re looking (at least in my opinion) overall, one year later!
– We have a new, much better website
– There are now fairly regular updates to the website
– Our social media now has regular content posted daily
– Our social media pages are now a collection of useful info about backup, colo, VPS, hosting
– We now have frequent blogs on the website
– We have several videos on our website to help with topics like backup etc
– We’ve made some major headway on how we present our products/info on our website
– A more active social media that can act as a less formal communication channel for you
What’s in Store for the Next Year?
While we’ve certainly come leaps and bounds from where we were this time last year, we still have a long way to go! Things can always be improved and that’s what we intend to do! There is a load of things we want to implement and tweak throughout the next year, all of which should make any experiences you have with us just that little bit better.
We Want Your Help
One thing we want to try and do more of next year is getting feedback from you! Is there something we do well that you really like, we want to know! Equally, if there is something you don’t like or feel could be improved, let us know that too! We want to improve and make things better for you or equally double down on the things we do well. If there is anything that comes to mind right now, drop us a comment at the bottom of this blog. We’ll be asking for feedback throughout the year, so if something crops up later on, be sure to let us know and we’ll do our best to help make things better for you and us.
To nicely round off this blog before it gets too long, here are a couple of thoughts of mine, reflecting over the last year.
Getting into both marketing and the IT industry has been a big change of pace for me. I’ve never been in either industry before this year and had intentions of getting into the film industry straight out of Uni…However, I’m glad I did get here.
Being put into marketing has opened my eyes on so many things and I enjoy doing it a lot now! Being left almost solely in charge of the marketing is definitely challenging and has been (and still is a huge learning curve) but through trial and error and keeping up with trying new things, I think we’re finally making some decent progress!
I’ll stop now before I ramble on anymore and this blog post gets way too long! 😂
I look forward to what we will achieve in the next year and how things will change. So, until the next update from me, it was good to chat with you again.
