We (myself and another Castleisland native, Michael Horan) also started a website creation /online branding & marketing business, mainly for other businesses in Castleisland and surrounding areas, filling what we believe to be a major need to help them commit to go digital and to take advantage of all the internet has to offer and to help their respective businesses, using tools and skills we can provide - graphics/ technical know-how / marketing experience / knowledge / etc. These days businesses have to approach all of these things together, and we can drive or help with that.
We believe we're extremely competitive on price (contact us to discuss because every business has different needs), and we're very convenient to chat to if you live closeby, and we wish to help all businesses in our area succeed.
Contact us through here for a brochure, or a quote, or call to our Castleisland office (New Carnegie Building - the old Library building at the top of the town). We cater for full eCommerce sites as well as basic websites, and will help where we can with all of your "online branding". I do all graphics needed, including your logo if you don't have one already... All included.
Here are a few examples of sites we're involved in so far:
Online catalog for a Carpentry service who do Gates as a speciality but also much more. Website shows all of these services. Designed logo to begin, then used that as basis for website / and also branding on vans around town, etc. -> consistent branding. Also needed site to be dynamic (works equally well on mobile devices)
School website that needed updating to be dynamic (works equally well on mobile devices) and updating of content, redesigned whole site.
Castleisland Bar / Pub / music venue website that needed to be dynamic (now works equally well on mobile devices) and updating of content to include local knowledge, local accommodation, videos of live gigs on premises, etc., redesigned whole site.
Local Butcher / BBQ catering service.... online menus and pricing information for the BBQ service
* Working on * working with local amateur 'historian' and photographer to get his collection of old photos online - will be a great resource for people of Castleisland once complete.
And of course this one! Full eCommerce site, can order canvasses from your photos, etc.
Also coming soon / currently working on :
Molly's Keepsakes full eCommerce site
David Costello Shoes site showing shoe stock, etc.
McAuliffe Farms - large pig farmers with other animals and services... site to show all of these.
Social Media Marketing we are currently working on:
Facebook marketing for newly branded Hotel (was previously a Guesthouse) that resides in great location in middle of Killarney town centre, to try to drive direct bookings rather than customers always using booking.com, etc. We use Killarney itself as a marketing tool, as well as the Hotel itself and it's boutique character. Use of Video ads, and Facebook targeted advertising to increase likes on the page.
Also, online marketing for Mollys Keepsakes... they specialise in Personalised Gifts, Rag Dolls, Rocking Chairs, Christening wear, Blankets and Shawls, and stock quality often exclusive brands... they wanted a marketing push leading up to Christmas 2018, including video ads of 'talking/moving' teddy that we recorded ourselves:
Services we offer and typical prices:
Note: Most customers require a combination of these services, for example, 'create website' & 'create Social media pages to market it' & 'advertise special offers using Facebook targeted advertising' & etc.
