Delighted to say I have had a successful start to 2016. Always obvious when my own site is not updated! Here's what I have been up to ......
I have completed various projects in our usual speedy manner, mainly focused on simply effective websites.
www.CorkSkipBags.com - a Cobh based business offering a domestic rubbish collection service, now providing a skip bag service with an ecommerce function on their new website. Fully secured, and launched in a matter of days, the site earned the site owner immediate rewards and ranks brilliantly on google.
www.BoatsDelivered.com - a fabulously interesting business proving worldwide boat deliveries. From logo design, to procurement of images, I was proud to launch this website for such a lovely gentleman who I hope to help in so many other aspects of his fledgling business.
www.GrestPubsInStevenage.co.uk - a new company in Hertfordshire, UK, who operate fantastic pubs focusing on traditional standards with modern comforts. I created a simple holding site for the company, with clear obvious links to the new websites of the pubs they operate. These include:
Pleasingly, an existing client returned to ask me to relaunch their website into a full ecommerce function. This I completed in a couple of weeks, to include fully secure hosting, a decent payment gateway, and properly created images for their online store. Thanks to Paul and all the lovely people at Pi Cycles. Take a look at www.picycles.ie
Most recently we have helped bring together two separate UK photography businesses, and launched www.EmmaAndMartinPhotography.co.uk just 48 hours upon receipt of brief. Always helps to have such stunning imagery to work with!
Offering my usual speedy attentive service to all my clients, the timescale from initial brief being received, to full launch, is completed in good time. However, please be assured I do provide a full service (unlike some of my competitors!), from URL purchase, to email set up, to sitemap planning, linking with social media, devising automated message forms, to concluding with full indexing on google when ready for launch. I help with copy writing, sourcing imagery, and general branding elements too (tweaking logos so they look good on screen!).
All the sites I create are reactive and work seamlessly across desktop, laptop, phone and tablet.
There are better web designers out there and some amazing graphic designers (I know most of them, and learned from a lot of them!), however I doubt there are many (if any!) who can rival my dedicated personal service and true cost effectiveness in delivering you simplicity that works!
For a no obligation chat for any marketing or promotions project you may have in mind, please feel free to call me on 00353 89 229 1575 with any questions or comments, or drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your time in reading my wee blog!
t/a Apples & Pears
With a simple brief of helping to increase their local brand awareness, we devised the above eye catching (if a little scary - sorry!) design for www.corklockandsafe.ie to be used on posters, flyers, advertisements and general online use.
The first public outing for the design was in a local community festival programme where the ad' really stood out against the usual boring, lifeless "good luck" type messages.
We supplied the final artwork in various formats (including landscape too - ideal for half page ads in magazines and newspapers), ready for print or web use, to the client so that they are free to use the design wherever they choose with no restrictions of use.
With dark nights approaching (this is Ireland, what happened to the summer?!) you could do no harm in giving Rob at Cork Lock And Safe a call on 087 244 8836.
We were previously delighted to help with the build and launch of www.bestpricetyres.cork and done very well to get them listed onto the first page of google for common tyre based searches as well as car repair related activity.
With the owner wishing to diversify his services, he opted to open at a new premises and offer a fully encompassing car repair garage in addition to his very successful tyre business.
Returning to us to help with his website, we kept to our simple yet effective website design formula that served him well in the past (and so many others of our client list!) and launched www.wilsonautoservices.ie within one week of receiving final brief.
We aided with logo design, url purchase, hosting and email set up too and continue to offer advice and guidance with their blogging and ongoing SEO work to ensure they gain and remain the top choice for the Cork based car owner!
