Blog: State of the Pom: End of Year Lookback 2015

It’s interesting to look back at statistics of our business for the year, and 2015 is no different! From what was popular on our social media accounts, to how many individual items we rented out in one year, the results are always insightful. Though 2014 had a lot more big changes for us, 2015 was a year of growth, with more and bigger orders, more inventory, and more engagement with our clients.

We rented out a lot of items. A LOT. We had never really looked at the total number of individual inventory items that went out of warehouse, so we really had no idea of the shear volume. Keep in mind, this includes every single fork, votive holder, table runner, or glass. But it still is huge!

About half of all our orders were in town, the other 50% were shipped all over the country. Outside of Kansas and Missouri, the most orders went to states with big populations, with California being a standout popular shipping destination.

Our most liked Instagram photos are of…other people’s work: an awesome KC Royals print by Bozz Prints and a photo of the most incredible cake ever by Adorn Cakes.

But luckily, the most liked photo on our Facebook page was of something that was actually ours. We’re excited about our new Burnished Copper Flatware too!

We also added a bunch of awesome new items to our rental inventory, from Farm Tables and Cross-Back Chairs, to Mega Connect 4 and Giant Jenga.

And a bunch of it we made ourselves! We really enjoy the creative challenge of figuring out how to make beautiful decor that will hold up to the wear and tear of renting. There is probably even more we made, but these are the standouts.

So that was our 2015. All in all, 2015 was a great year for Ultrapom, and we couldn’t have done it without all of you. We thank you for your business and look forward to working with you in 2016.

We’re excited for our plans for next year! I’ll be sharing them on Monday, so be on the lookout to find out what we are up to, and how it will make for more awesome events in the coming year for everyone.
