I can’t believe that I am writing this blog and it is the end of 2017, they say that time goes quickly but this year really has flashed before our eyes. It has been a busy one here at Blinds4udirect and we have achieved nearly everything that we had hoped! We have more staff since we are forever getting busier and most importantly for all our lovely customers we have cut down lead times on the vertical blinds, roller blinds and wooden blinds. We make all these on site so really wanted to get them out to the customer as quickly as we could from the time of ordering.
We just want to say thank you to each one of you who has visited the website Blinds4udriect.co.uk this year and placed an order with us, if you are a regular blog reader you will know that we are a family run business and each order is important to us! I have enclosed a photo below for you all to see our team here, this was taken just 5 months ago so is a very recent photo of us all!
We have seen a lot change on current trends over the years and blinds have defiantly followed. When we first started manufacturing wooden blinds on site it was all about the wood colours with Tawny and Honey being the best sellers, in 2015 we saw a huge change and it was all about the crisp and clean white colours and then at the beginning of 2017 it was all about the greys! We can’t wait to see what 2018 brings with a new supplier book out there will be even more blind materials to choose from once they are added to the site!
We have also really worked on the Blinds4udirect social media this year because it is reported that 60% of the time that we are on our mobile phones is spent on social media so this is how we decided we wanted to keep you all up to date with the great things we have going on. We have had 3 giveaway competitions this year totalling £100.00 in amazon vouchers and someone was lucky enough to win a free blind, in 2018 we hope to up this amount so make sure that you are following us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
Videos are something that we have dipped our toes into this year, it took a little while for us to be convinced but the comments from the customers have been amazing and we again thank you for all your support and kind words in this. Many of you have said how much easier it is to watch someone measure and fit rather than reading instructions. We have also helped many people choose which blind is perfect for their home with the videos so keep an eye out for more in 2018 on our YouTube channel.
I would just like to again thank you all for the orders that you have placed this year and we can wait to again work with you in 2018. We hope that whatever you are doing over the break working, spending time with family, holiday or just generally relaxing it is your best Christmas and new year yet!
