Reasons Why Your Business Needs an Online Presence
Giving your small business an online presence means more than simply putting up a little website with your company’s address and phone number. It means setting up a virtual version of your business, with a welcoming, informative website, a Facebook page and Twitter account. In this electronic era, more people search online for the products and services they need as opposed to searching through a phone book. Ignoring this important potential marketing platform is akin to saying, “I don’t need any new business.”
Website Design & Development
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of creating or optimising a website in order to get high search engine rankings in Google.
Google and the other search engines are an increasingly important source of potential customers, and high search engine rankings for relevant search phrases will greatly increase traffic to your website, giving you:

SEO allows you to market your business:
Search Engine Optimisation is among the most cost-effective ways to promote your business, allowing you to efficiently reach large numbers of highly targeted customers. Organic SEO focuses on the main Google results, meaning that you do not need to pay every time someone clicks on your listing. For this reason organic SEO can prove to be excellent value for money.
SEO has a greater reach than traditional marketing channels, such as local radio stations, because your business can be found by customers across the whole of Ireland, or even worldwide.
SEO is more focused than traditional marketing channels, since your website will only be marketed to people who are actively searching for the products and services you provide within your desired catchment area.
SEO gives longer lasting results than traditional marketing channels. Today’s newspaper adverts become tomorrow’s fish’n’chips wrappers, but money invested in obtaining top Google rankings will pay for itself many times over, for weeks and months to come.
Finally, SEO helps your business stand out in a crowded marketplace. If your website does not appear near the top of the search engine results then potential customers will use one of your competitors instead. So each day you delay starting your SEO campaign means more potential customers visiting your competitors, and more lost sales.
You may be particularly interested in SEO if:
There are two different sides to website SEO; on-site SEO and off-site SEO.
During the on-site SEO phase, we will analyse and make changes to your website itself, editing and adding content, redesigning the structure of your site, and fixing any problems that are holding your website back.
During the off-site SEO phase we will increase the popularity of your website by raising its profile online, which can involve building the right kind of links to your website, creating articles and press releases, submitting your website to directories, and promoting your website on relevant social networking sites, blogs and forums.
On-site and off-site search engine optimisation techniques are equally important when carrying out web search engine optimisation. You should treat with scepticism claims from SEO companies that they don’t need to alter your website to improve your Google rankings.
Once the on-site SEO and off-site SEO phases are completed, we will then monitor the improvement of your site in the search engine rankings and continue to make further on-site and off-site adjustments as necessary to keep your site rankings high.
By carrying out website search engine optimisation on an ongoing basis we can also target new search phrases as your business grows and changes, run seasonal promotions, as well as generally keeping your website up-to-date.
One of the common side effects of good off-site SEO work is to increase your website’s Google PageRank. However PageRank by itself is less important than good search engine rankings, since good rankings are what drives traffic to your website.
Unlike some SEO companies, Blarney Web Design use only ethical SEO techniques to help our clients gain better rankings in the organic search results. Ethical search engine optimisation involves ‘white-hat’ techniques that don’t risk getting your site blacklisted by Google and the other search engines.
How much does SEO cost?
The cost of SEO depends mainly on the number of keywords that you would like a high ranking for, as well as the competitiveness of those terms. So it is harder to get your website to rank for 100 unrelated phrases than if you focus on a small number of related phrases. And it is harder to rank #1 for a competitive term like ‘mortgages’ or ‘loans’ than it is to rank #1 for a very specific, less competitive phrase such as ‘low interest home improvement loans’.
Blarney Web Design offer a choice of web design and SEO packages designed to suit all businesses, though we also offer bespoke SEO services upon request.
Search Engine Rankings
Search engine rankings are a measure of the combined popularity and relevance that your site is judged to have. Relevant, popular sites are likely to rank higher in search engine results for a given search phrase.
The Web Development Process
A free consultation process will take place to identify your on line marketing needs, time frame and scope of your project. Details of your enquiry will be taken down. A convenient communication channel will be used to best suit you needs, via email, telephone, or meeting.
We analysis in detailed your aims and objectives for your website. Details of the core needs of your business will be taken into account. These may include target markets, target audience, unique selling points etc. Your business, its competitors and bench marks as well as its targeted markets will be studied thoroughly to position the website in its targeted markets. This will include your initial input and suggestions. The most appropriate web development technologies will be determined.
Based on our research on your core organisational needs, your marketing strategy and the target markets your website will perform in, we create a web design proposal detailing what we will do, how we will do it and the total cost of the project. The proposal will be sent to you and for your approval and once we have received your acceptance of our proposal a deposit of 30% will be required. We will start work upon receipt of your deposit .
Website Planning and Application
We will project manage your website and communicate with you in the most convenient way to update you with the development process of the website. Members of the web development team will be allocated to your project. The first stage is to develop the branding of your website. This will involve creating branding, logos and colour scheme of your website. We will match your online branding to your existing company branding. If need be we will create a new brand for you.
When the website has been finished, it will be tested on line. Our web developers and project manager will test and check for errors on the website.
After the final testing and when you are completely happy with your website, we will send you the final invoice. Upon payment your site can go live onto its domain name and is ready to use.
