Covid 19 – Offer of Free Services
I will set up a payments page on your site, using a premium paid plugin, FREE OF CHARGE.
I have given very careful consideration to writing this post. In the past few weeks Covid-19 has been a terrible tsunami to the majority of Irish businesses. It has brought the best out in many of us, with so much goodwill coming from all parts of society. There has also been a minority, who have taken advantage of the situation for gain. In the web design sector I have witnessed several new entrants offering cut price solutions. These are usually followed up by aggressive paid Facebook and Google Ads. In my opinion, many of these cut price websites are selling lies to Irish businesses such as guaranteeing first place in the Google search results or producing an award winning website for €497 euro . The reality is a lot of these sites are poorly built, sluggish and not fit for purpose to trade online. As always, you get what you pay for.
My answer to this, and to support Irish businesses during this, difficult time is the following –
- I will do a FREE phone / video consultation for up to 30 minutes to discuss your current website, business goals and quick wins.
- If your current WordPress site is not built to accept online payments, I will set up a payments page on your site, using a premium paid plugin, FREE OF CHARGE. (worth €350)
- If you need your current site audited for issues, I will do so FREE OF CHARGE. (worth €250)
- If you only require a quick fix to your site and it will take less than 15 minutes, I will get it done. (worth €50)
I will not sell you something you do not need, and I will be as flexible as I can around project payments.
I have always been honest and straight talking. I have met clients who simply did not need a new website (despite what others around them advised). If a site is built well, it can be enhanced with online payments, appointment booking software, eCommerce etc. For slow sites, often changing to our specialist WordPress hosting can lead to huge performance improvements. If your site was built several years ago and has not been updated, then you may be at risk. Rest assured, I will not sell you something you do not need, and I will be as flexible around project payments. Depending on the investment required, a project could be undertaken using split payment. Cash flow has taken a hit everywhere, so I will work with you.
It is a time when your first instinct is to cut all spending. But don’t miss out on an opportunity.
A lot of businesses, where possible, are trying to continue operations online. Your website may have previously been secondary to your business, but now is your primary means of communicating with your customers. Ask yourself, “is your perfect customer leaving your site without transacting?”. Do you see site visitors, but very few actual customers? When and where are you losing them on page?
It is a time when your first instinct is to cut all spending. But don’t miss out on an opportunity. Like footfall on Grafton Street at Christmas time, some retailers have seen an exponential increase in their web traffic. With most offices and outlets closed, online is the only medium to transact. Make sure your business is responding to this change.
