Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us, happy birthday dear Limelyyyyyyy, happy birthday to us! We are officially three years old. 🎂
On November 1st 2015, the best digital agency in the world (alright, let us have our moment) was born. Three years later, we’re still here and stronger than ever. So, what exactly have we been doing over the past 365 days since our last bday celebration? Well, this blog post is about to spill the beans. But first we’d like to say a massive huge thanks to everyone who’s been with us for the ride – whether you’re family, someone we’ve chatted to on Twitter, an esteemed client (old and new) or just a mate, thank you for sticking around. It’s been a blast! And this is why we love it so much…
So, where are we at?
Three years of #limelylife
As always, we’re going to give you a quick run-down of the Limely basics. This is what we’ve achieved in our third year of business, in numbers:
- We’ve got three new members of staff – hey Matty Briggs, Chris Drury and Kyle Bloor!
- We’re proud to say we’ve launched twenty-six websites
- We’ve time-tracked 8,698 hours so far in 2018
What else is worth talking about?
We’ve had a record number of client wins this year, three of which earned us a Prolific North feature. Thanks to Lingerie Outlet Store, Nine Elephants, Springer Healthcare, Kero, Vivio, Global Travel Group, Yoobic, Perfficiency, Quant, MD Insurance Services, Cater For You, Go Smoke Free and Air Sea for choosing us as your digital partner. And of course, thank you to all our existing clients who continue to let us work our magic. ✨
Here at Limely, we always like to do something new and we’ve had the pleasure of building websites for brands in the restaurant, travel and healthcare industry. Of course, we’ve also been continually adding to our existing portfolio of property, finance and retail sites. Take a peek at some of our favourites…
To keep you on your toes, we’ve also got a few exciting projects in the pipeline. This year, we secured a number of Magento 2 clients to add to our ecommerce roster – including Lingerie Outlet Store that’s now live, as well as Factory Direct Flooring and Cater For You that are currently in progress. You can also expect to see some lovely looking WordPress sites in the coming months… as always 😏
We’ve had a little bit of downtime, of course
You know our mantra here – work hard but play hard, too. And although we’ve been incredibly busy at Limely HQ, we’ve managed to squeeze in some fun nights and days out. Kicking things off earlier in the year, we took a trip to the Crystal Maze in Manchester which was a big hit. In summer, we spent a glammed-up evening at Chester Races. We’ve also had quite a few spontaneous nights out where we sampled the foodie delights of Chester – including Nine Elephants and The Botanist. We can’t wait to see what team-building activities we come up with next year!
Now for the celebrations! 🎉
Tonight, we party. We’ll be kicking things off in the office with an early finish (duh) and cleaning out the beer fridge. Then, we’re heading downstairs for burgers, chips and cake at The Alchemist until we’re ready to hit the dance floor in Cruise – there’ll be more booze in our private booth, of course. It’s gonna be a great one and if you’re not coming (rude), you’re sure to see a gallery of snaps sometime next week. Until then, it’s been a pleasure… we’re off to celebrate the past three years 🍺
