When you’re hard at work shaping the future it’s a bit tough to find time to look back.
But we did! Not to be too self-congratulatory, but we did a lot of work this year – a lot of work that gives us a lot of pride. Here are the highlights, set to the tune of a Christmas classic (no, unfortunately it’s not Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas).
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a partridge lion in a pear tree grape vine.
Pt. Leo Estate mightn’t grow their produce on trees, but it’s certainly got an abundance of the world’s best fruit – the grape. 50 acres of vines, 100 head of Black Angus cattle, and one sensational website.
On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me two turtledoves. Ok, so we didn’t give them birds, but we did give them wings.
oOH! Media is taking off soon with a new design for their airport-based advertising division, oOH! Fly. Setting them up with a brand new web design is Dando’s way of helping to launch them even further. Up, up and away!
On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me not three French Hens but a French something else!
Our wonderful Managing Editor, Emily, became the poster girl for Water Aid’s new Learn on the Loo Challenge. She became 45% fluent in French in no time at all! We think it adds a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to our office!
On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me many more than four calling birds! 244% more calling birds!
Our client Surrey Air had their calling birds increased by a whopping 244%. Yep, you heard us right, 244% increase in leads for our client! Now that’s something worth celebrating.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me five golden rings! Well, not really, but we’ll give you someone who can earn you those golden rings.
On the fifth day we gave Mead Partners Chartered Accountants a website to be proud of. Now Melbourne’s Premier Accounting Service Firm has Australia’s Premier Professional Services website! Now go and get some golden rings of your own!
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a cracking good egg. Not laid by six geese, but by our stunning design team!
Our new Dando site is a sight to behold! What do you think? A good egg indeed we reckon.
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me more than seven swans people swimming!
We were proud to help Richmond residents do much more to move than just swim. We launched and sold-out a ton of events in the exercise and health focused Wellness Week for our wonderful Bridge Road community.
On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me not milk but wine!
On our eighth day, Dando gave St. Anne’s Winery a bump in their sales of more than 18% from last year. We reckon that’s an increase worth milking!
On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me nine ladies dancing. And men. And children. Basically just a lot of people dancing.
We continued our work with our lovely upstairs neighbour, Phoenix Dance! They produce amazing and talented dancers from the studio above us, and we like to think we take their leads to the next level!
On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me ten lords businesses and individuals a-leaping.
We helped Arize build a beautiful new web solution to help their clients get the most height on their leaps. Arize are PR professionals who help businesses and individuals leap into the limelight.
On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me someone who builds with more than piping pipes!
We started built an amazing new website for DEKS – a building supplies manufacturer that builds with pipes and more materials than you can count! Stay tuned for their website which will roll out soon!
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a drum roll for one huge platform.
Quitch is one of Dando’s biggest ever platforms. It’s the only learning platform that’s proven to improve class retention rates and performance of students. We are so proud to be their technology partner
Christmas is the best time of year to have a look back at all you’ve achieved. And here at Dando, we are more than proud of all the targets we’ve hit, and the ones we’ve surpassed this year. So this is like a big round of applause after a Christmas Carol performance, but instead, it’s for the performance of Dando’s Team, and for our wonderful clients.
