Sports Shots 2018: A year of breaking records

During 2018 Sports Shots kept on beating record after record for the hits we received on our website, the previous year we had seen 4.96M so we set ourselves a target of 6 million.

As we reported during the year we smashed through that, and in December we revealed we’d beaten the 7M mark.

The final figures for our 2018 are now in, and we totalled 7,590,245 hits for the year.

The image below shows just how far we’ve come, smashing every month compared to the previous year, and also our daily hits records are indicated. In May we had almost 100,000 hits on the 3rd May, for just one day alone.

Targets for 2019…….

Sports Shots smashes through milestone to reach seventh heaven

Since the beginning of this year Sports Shots have seen the number of hits we receive grow beyond our wildest dreams, and through the year we have posted updates as and when we have reached milestones.

On Friday morning we posted on our social media pages that we’d beaten our previous monthly hits record which we set back in May with 808,317 hits; at 10.15am this morning we had reached 808,471 hits for November to set a new record for monthly hits. This will obviously increase as we go into the final few hours of this month. Now we have more exciting news…

 

In 2017 we totalled 4.96 million hits for the year, in the New Year we set ourselves a target of 6 million for the whole of 2018. In early September we posted that we had already gone past 5 million hits for the year.

Well we’ve more than beaten that total, our targets and anything else we could ever have dreamed of, and we still have December to go yet!

As at 6.15pm this evening Friday 30th November 2018, we have received hits that takes our yearly total thus far to: Over 7 million hits in eleven months

 

To be exact: 7,001,924

We have surpassed our own expectations and we would like to thank every single one of you who takes the time to support us, and visit our website www.sportsshots.org.uk

1 to 1 specialised training is available for all ages. Where most football training camps are en mass for groups of children, 1 to 1 will coach & educate players to their specific needs. Even if your child is already in a team, 1 to 1 can improve their technique, understanding & fitness, helping them to learn and improve. When you book your 1 to 1 specialised training, it’s all about your child with the coaches (although they can bring a friend for a 2 on 1 or even a 3 on 1 session)

Taken from their website:

Our 1 to 1 coaches are committed towards providing high-quality football coaching sessions, focused on technical and tactical development.

Level 3 / UEFA B Academy Coaches

We are now developing players with our new 1 to 1 Specialised Football Coaching sessions, this also includes train with friends 2on1 or 3on1, small group coaching, fun family sessions and returning from injury / fitness & circuit training.
Whether you are new to football or want to work on specific parts of your game our 5 star plans can help you reach your goals and excel in your football journey

Having sponsors like Football Warm Ups: 1 to 1 Specialised Training allows Sports Shots to continue covering all local football and cricket clubs in the region, and in return we hope many of our readers will call upon the excellent services that they offer.

These two charities are at the heart of this local website that covers several different sports across Buckingham, Milton Keynes and the surrounding area. Originally started in Buckingham as a photography project it has grown rapidly since 2011 and now covers many sports, providing interviews, match reports & photography.

Sports Shots is now widely regarded by those who follow local sport as the ‘go to’ site to gather all local news, results and fixture updates & we are now one of the biggest media outlets for local sport.

Everything on the site is provided by volunteers who contribute, as well as a dedicated team of reporters & photographers who work endlessly to give all local teams as much coverage as possible.

One local estate agent noticed how many people visit our website, and took advantage by sponsoring our YouTube page. The cost of this compared to the audience gained, far outweighed any other local advertising the company had done up until now.

We are now offering this fantastic opportunity to get your company advertised to our huge audience. With so many views per day, it would be very difficult to find a better source of advertising in the local area. 11,000 different people seeing your advert on our website every single day, twenty four hours a day. Where else do you get that?

A fantastic opportunity to raise your community awareness, as well as pledge to two vital charities!
