Total Guide to Turns Eight!

Happy Birthday Total Guide to! March marks our 8th birthday, so we couldn't let it pass without a celebration!

A quote from Liz Hutchings, Founder and Director of Total Guide to:

"We are constantly kept busy and on our toes by the ever-evolving digital trends. Our anniversaries roll on by at a rapid rate so it's important to pause and recognise how far we've come.

The remarkable staff and individuals involved with Total never cease to impress me with their skill, belief in the business and pride in their work; our growth can only be attributed to their efforts.
We've come a long way in 8 years and 2020 will see even more events, more franchises (including the launch of Total Guide to Poole this Spring), new site functionality and we have already welcomed a diverse mix of new clients. Our efforts have also resulted in site traffic continuing to rise (by 19% in the last year with 246,000 unique monthly visitors).

We'd like to send a special thank you to our long-standing clients who have been with us since we went live in March 2012 (inSwindon, NSRBC, Longs, Barnes Travel, Pebley Beach, Wyvern Theatre and Roves Farm), and we feel privileged to enjoy such strong working relationships and to keep on delivering bigger and better results for our customers and user experience for our site visitors."
