6 months of Payroll HelpFriday, February 18th, 2011
It’s been around 6 months since we started concentrating on developing the Payroll Help site from its roots in PayPerShop and we’ve seen the site grow from around 5000 unique visitors viewing 13000 a month, to a whopping 61,000 unique visitors viewing 110,000 pages, and somewhat dauntingly it’s still on the rise.
We’ve had our fair share of errors and mishaps along the way, broken links, some database problems and probably greatest of all the loss of forum posts during what should have been a simple upgrade – something we are still working to remedy a month later. The site is now much closer to where we want it to be, but I have a feeling that it’s going to be a constantly evolving process.
With that in mind, what do we have planned for the next 6 months? Well the closest thing on the horizon is our upcoming payroll industry survey which we aim to have out by the end of the month. We figured it’s all very well assuming we knew who you are, but it would be more sensible to simply ask you then share the results. The survey will of course be completely anonymous, we’re not after market data we just think it’s about time that someone got a snapshot of the payroll industry as a whole. We plan on publishing the results in a few months after we’ve had time to analyze them.
Another thing to look out for in the proceeding months are some payroll videos from our staff and tutors. Here at learn we’re currently in the middle of perhaps our busiest period so I can’t give you any idea on the frequency of the videos, but I’ll endevour to make it as often as possible.
We’ll be putting some further work into the payroll directory, because it does need some attention, although it is good to know that we can still interest people like IRIS payroll software for them to sign up.
We are very interested to hear any suggestions you might have for what you would like to see appearing on the site. It is here to serve you after all so why not get what you want out of it?
What more is there to say? Thank you very much to Mr Ian Congreave for writing the vast majority of the articles on this site and for moderating the forum, we wouldn’t have reached the totals above without his continued input. He is perhaps the authority on UK payroll (which is not to say he doesn’t have an encyclopedaic knowledge of international payroll), and we’re lucky to have him write for us.
We hope you continue to visit and get the most out of Payroll Help
