Website design & Build

Having an online presence is hugely important today. If you do not have an online presence you are potentially losing out on a huge customer base, and having an online shop means that you don’t have to wait until the tourist season to sell your wares!

We start the process off with a questionnaire for all potential clients. This is  beneficial to both clients and to us. For us it helps create a clear picture of what you need, whether we are the right people for the job and, very importantly, how much it will cost. For you it can help in trying to visualise what kind of website you would like and to start seeing your business in terms of an online presence.

All website builds are responsive, are optimised for basic SEO, and include 1 training session tailored to suit client needs.

We have worked on numerous websites under the LEO Online Trading Voucher scheme which will reimburse you 50% of the cost of a build should you be eleigible – More details here

Media & Content Creation

Having good quality content on your website is vital to engaging your audience and customers. Whilst text is necessary, Google loves video and images, both of which can be a great way of boosting your SEO and engagement with your audience.

A well made video can be used to highlight and showcase the services your business offers. People visiting a website will view and engage with a video 80% more than they will stay to read text (are you reading this now or are you looking at the video?). We generally advise that a video be kept short and to the point to avoid waning interest from viewers, but if you are looking for something longer we can certainly discuss the options and come up with a plan!

Good photographs and imagery are essential for a good looking and engaging website, but, not all photographs need to be original photographs of your business. If you don’t need custom photography we can guide you in choosing suitable images for your site from a large bank of resources which can work out a lot cheaper – and sometimes free!

Graphic design

Branding is not only for the big companies like Apple and Google, every business should have branding on some level, whether it’s a font, a colour, a picture or even a person – every business should have something that marks it out from it’s competitors and that describes itself. Some of the best branding (like Google & Apple) can be deceptively simple but hugely effective.

We love to make logos, they build a picture of your brand and can tie your whole digital and real world presence together. We also make brochures, flyers, posters, roadside signs, social media banners, tickets….you name it and we will design it!

If you need something for print we can work with your favoured printer or we can suggest a suitable printer for the job if you don’t have a preferred printer.

hosting, Updates & training

Domain name and hosting are necessary parts of building your online presence. Whether it’s a .ie or a .com you need, we can help guide you in choosing a suitable domain name and hosting plan. We can set up and manage your hosting for you, or we can work with whatever hosting you already have in place – whatever is suitable for you, works for us!

Security is an ongoing issue for all websites and they need to be protected from hackers. There are several measures that can be taken to increase the security of your site. A secure and stable host provider is a great starting point and we recommend Siteground as a web host provider for your WordPress sites. Your site should be updated regularly in order to keep it’s defences strong against any hackers.

We can set you up with site back ups, regular updates and security to keep your site going strong.

We also provide training in how to manage your WordPress site. Training sessions are customised to what you feel comfortable with and how much you feel you need to know. We can teach you how to boost your SEO rating with Google over time, how to change and edit text, how to add images and, very importantly, how to manage your online shop

If you would prefer to setup your own domain and hosting here are a few tips to help you along. Keep in mind getting a low quality hosting package could end up costing you more in the long road as slow services will eat into your web designers time. The vendors mentioned below are who we feel are the best in the industry at the moment ticking all the boxes for speed, service, quality, support and value for money.

The IE registry’s rules are somewhat stricter than those for .com’s etc., but normally proof of entitlement will suffice. You will need your CRO registration if using the business name, or a letter on headed paper outlining your entitlement to the name.

We recommend Blacknight for your IE domain with prices starting at only 19.99 per year.

For non .ie domains we recommend Siteground who offer a free non .ie domain with all hosting plans.

WordPress Security and Maintenance.

All websites are fundamentally identical in the fact they all have a header, a footer, a menu, a content area, a sidebar and so on. So instead of re-inventing the wheel with every web development job the WordPress community came together and created the WordPress framework. This allows web designers to bypass the Framework development stage and is the very reason you end up with a high spec website for a fraction of the price.

But there is one catch, because of the popularity of WordPress and the predictable framework it has become a target for hackers and spammers. But don’t fret the WordPress Community are always steps ahead of them with frequent security updates freely available to counteract any possible threats way in advance. These hackers mainly prey on sites that are not updated regularly.

To keep your site safe all you have to do is be vigilant in keeping your theme, WP version and plugins up to date. As an added layer of security we can apply extra precautions such as hiding the fact your site runs on Wordpress. This will hide your login page which will defend against brute force login attempt. It will hide what versions you are using so if you do fall behind on updates you will still be safe.

If you are serious about your business you should be serious about your website. For less than a €1 a day we provide a security and maintenance package that includes:

  • Hiding the fact you are using WordPress without compromising the site appearance
  • 24hr monitoring of website and notification about any bad behaviour with full detail of attacker (username, IP, Page, Date, etc)
  • Constant review and updating of IP blacklist which will blocked all known bad IP’s
  • Quarterly Site backup
  • Quarterly Site Update – WordPress Version, Theme and Plugins
  • Quarterly deep website scans of all the files for Virus/Malware detection and removal.

The above will be carried out every three months @ €75 per session or for a once off session @ €100.

All web builds come with a free training session (depending on your location) and usually lasts about an hour, not more than 2.

Some people need more time, another session, or just want more indepth knowledge about their site – which we can certainly accommodate.

€30 per hour / €150 per day
