Wow – what a busy month August has been here at Webcredible Towers! Actually, it does feel a bit like our building is all ours as we now occupy 4 of its 5 floors. We moved in to our current offices almost 5 years ago now, at which time we were just sub-letting a few desks. As we expanded over the years we’ve gradually taken over more and more of the building.
Anyway, I digress… August is now over and despite the fact that this signifies the official end of summer (did we even have a proper summer this year?) everyone here is quite relieved. We managed to get through more work this month than at any time I can remember in quite a while. We’ve been delivering on some very complex user research and design projects and I’m really pleased with the work we’ve produced – it really is top-notch and adding significant value to our clients.
We additionally put live another report this month, focusing on the state of the financial price comparisonmarket. The report, entitled Future comparisons: What’s next for price comparison websites, is now available for free download and is well worth a read!
As part of this, we’ve changed our standard download page for the report (as well as the download pages for all our other reports) so you no longer need to enter your email address in order to get the free PDFdownload. Previously you had to enter your email and there was a checkbox already ticked to sign up to our fantastic newsletter (our system would then email you a link to the report). We originally did this with our report download pages so as to increase newsletter subscribers, but with almost 25,000 of you now subscribed to the newsletter we decided it was time to let you get instant access to the reports.
So with September now upon us it’s business as usual for us Webcredibles. We’re out and about quite a lot this month, attending the usual IMRG events, the Accessibility 2.0 conference and the Great customer services on a budget day-long seminar organised by the ARK Group (at which I’m presenting).
So that’s about it for another month – please don’t forget to vote in our poll about what the key factor in purchasing a content management system would be for you. With 800 votes to-date some surprising results are emerging.
