2010 is upon is. We’d like to thank all of our clients, co-workers,
friends, freelancers, geeky colleagues, fellow tech workers and everyone
else that we’ve met and worked with in 2009. You’ve made the last year
absolutely wonderful for us, and we’ve enjoyed every interaction. The
great people we talk to everyday are what makes everything worthwhile.
We’re extremely proud of the work we’ve done in the past year, and we’ve
had some brilliant successes. Thank you, thank you and thank you again.
We’re looking forward to the upcoming year. Thinking about our plans for
the future, we realized that there is always room for improvement. We
want to share some of the goals, ideas and improvements that we’re going
to make happen immediately in the upcoming year. Everything we want to
do comes down to one thing: providing you with best web presence to make
your business successful.
Put You First
The most important thing we can do is improve our customer service. You,
our clients are the sole reason we exist, and we want to treat you even
better than we do now. We want to get things done more quickly, do them
better and create the best sites that we can. We want you to be happy
with us. In order to help things along, we’re expanding our team so
there is more of us to go around. Your project always comes first. This
is a promise we take seriously, and if something falls between the
cracks let us know and we’ll make it right.
No Agency BS
We’re not an agency, and we’ll never be one. What does that mean
exactly? We’re a boutique size business with small to large size
clients. You won’t get your project passed off to an underling after we
win your business, because we don’t have any underlings. We’re a team.
We’re proud of every project we’ve done, and take it personally if
something isn’t right. We don’t care about running up billable hours,
that isn’t how we work. We’ll quote you for your project, and we’ll
stick to that quote. Since everyone at The Blog Studio does a little bit
of everything, you don’t have to pay for a bunch of unnecessary
management costs. There aren’t a bunch of overpaid executives sitting in
our office that need to keep the Lear Jet gassed up. We all get our
hands dirty, so all the hours you pay for get your project closer to
perfection. We’ll never pad your bills, we’ll never give you the
runaround, we won’t bill you for vapor work, and we’ll make sure the
work is done right. In short, we’ll treat your business the way we like
people to treat our business.
Adding New Services
After we finish a site, many of our you have asked us for help getting
the word out, creating content strategies, advice on copywriting and how
to get a PR program started. We’ve got you’ve covered in 2010. We’re
happy to say we’ve expanded our menu of offerings in these areas, and
we’ve brought in some new staff with loads of experience in these areas.
So whether you want to learn about how Twitter can help your business,
what taglines work the best for your site or how to get your business
featured in a big name magazine, we can help you build a program to
expand your brand.
Offering More Advice
We’re very proud of our blog, and the most popular posts are the ones
where we share advice on how to get things done. In 2010 we plan to post
more how-to’s, more software reviews, and more of the methods we use to
get things done. We love to share our ideas and working methods with
you, so you can make your business better. The ongoing conversation in
our comments section teaches us a lot about what you want to know more
about. From WordPress to Google Wave, we’ll try our best to cover it
all. If there’s something you’d like to hear more about, please drop us a
line and let us know. We’ll also be offering more advice and continuing
to answer your questions on Twitter @TheBlogStudio, so stop by and say
Keeping Up With the Joneses
Technology wise, things are moving faster than ever. We keep up with the
newest of the new, so you don’t have to. In the coming year we plan to
work even harder to ensure that every site we build is compatible with
the new best of breed browsers like Google Chrome. Our improved cross
browser support and testing will make certain you don’t miss a single
slice of your online audience. We’ll be extending this testing to all
the software, plugins and code that we use. We want every site built by
The Blog Studio to work flawlessly in every situation, every time.
Thanks for making 2009 a great year, and here’s to 2010.
