Who are we?

Michael is a well known speaker, author and coach on how to use the web to grow a business. He is also WP Elevation certified as a Digital Business Consultant. Our degree qualified Developers are all based in Donegal in Ireland. We do not offshore your development, so you get qualified local backup and support when you need it. We want to employ two more local Donegal or Irish residents every year. We help about 30 new clients a year and want to look after our current 50 clients really well on an ongoing basis – it is that simple. We love doing what we do. So, our main challenge, is to ensure that we are profitable doing what we do, to ensure that we will still be here next year, when our clients need more help.

Nominated for and Runner up in Best Professional Services Award 2018 by Chamber of Commerce
Why do we do it?
We are committed to helping people grow their business on the web, which in turn, grows ours. We earnestly believe we can help most professional services companies grow their market locally, but also possibly use the web to reach a much wider audience. We love the web and what it can do for you. We totally geek out on this stuff. #Lovetalkingbusines. We commit to continuous professional development and web is our area of expertise – tell us about yours?
How do we do it?
In Web design since pre 2000, we have over 19 years experience as business website designers. We use that earned knowledge to help our clients use the web to generate leads and sales or improve efficiency, recruit staff, save time or compete better. All our Developers are degree qualified plus years of industry experience. And we all do Continuous Professional Development, as in about 8 hours a week. The sum of our team experience is available to help you succeed on the web. Read Michael’s personal story here.
If we are a good fit for you, we meet, then we have 4 key steps, 1. write up a Brief or plan, including some of your goals, then create a Sitemap, 2. Then build a Wireframe or Prototype to show a proposed layout, 3. then create a Graphic Design or Mockup of your website, 4. before building it. We can usually build the website in one week, but the whole process usually takes 4 or 6, depending on the client and content required. See our full process in 10 step detail here.
Who do we do it for?
Successful professional services businesses that want to grow bigger, save labour costs, be more professional online, offer a better service to their clients. Typically our clients will be profitable, employ 5 or more people, be Professionals such as Solicitors and Accountants, Architects and Builders. Some are in Manufacturing or Distribution. See some recent sites here
What problem do we solve?
Most people do NOT want a website, they want something that a website can possibly deliver, such as more customers, more sales, time saved etc. Solicitors may want to specialise in certain legal services. Accountants may want to get certain industry clients such as Hotels or Doctors. Architects may want adventurous customers and Builders may want commercial or residential clients. Some customers just want to make it easier for their customers to get answers to questions or get access to documents or courses.
How do we differ from ‘competitors’?
In theory, anybody with a computer can create a website, just like anybody with a calculator can count. Anyone with a pen and paper can draw houses or draw up legal contracts. Our industry is quite new and it can be hard to know which web designer to choose. But lets face it, you would not take legal advice from a kid, or tax advice from a student or allow someone with no track record manage your pension. You would not let a junior doctor operate on your mother or fly with an unqualified pilot to get a cheap holiday. People generally know what they are getting. Any decison made on the basis of lowest price, will usually deliver predictable results. But we do stand out because of all our years in the business, all the happy customers we have, the fact that we are so qualified as well as experienced. And if that was not enough, we only work with people when we genuinely feel that we can add value or give them a good return on any investment. We live by word of mouth referrals. We do not just want your money, we do want a part of the extra profit we make for you. It is that simple. If you choose to go with someone who costs less, then be prepared to get an amateur or a developer who does not understand business and who will deliver less. Have a complimentary 30 minute chat with us – no commitment, just an exploratory chat.
