We still remember the launch of WordPress as a simple blogging platform, which has now evolved into one of the most popular CMS systems on the market. The rise of the top social media platforms which are now an integrated part of current digital marketing strategies. And who can forget the infamous Google updates Panda, Penguin, and Mobilegeddon, that helped shape the Google experience we know today.
We had the privilege of launching the first Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce website back in 2011 (which appears in our timeline!) and then creating an updated version which you are all familiar with now that launched last year.
The advances of the digital industry have significantly shaped the websites we have created over the years. This is true for many of the most well-known brands such as Amazon, who have gone through an incredible digital transformation over the years. Version Museum shares some great insights into the Amazon digital journey, as well as some other top brands. Definitely worth a look!
