WEBSITES & DIGITAL
Website creation, implementation & training for all business types
Website creation, primarily using WordPress, copy, content and effective layout, as well as training for you and your team. Revamps and new sites. Project management with external agencies and designers. For those keen on DIY, I can guide you through the process from start to finish and help with domain names and hosting and all the technical stuff and time consuming bits. I can work with existing content or create all new copy depending on your needs. I can also work on a small budget for small projects using free internet tools and work alongside you to get your site up and running.
Having created a number of successful social media pages and used effective Search Engine Optimisation tips and tricks to improve listings for other clients, I can help your business grow its online presence and effectively use analytics to see what's working and, most importantly get you the most bang for your buck if you're considering a digital spend. I hold a diploma in digital marketing and have an in-depth knowledge of how to effectively market businesses online and define and measure a strategy that works for your business.
CLIENTS & EXPERIENCE
A little bit about Issy (Elisabeth) Ryan. "I'm passionate about Irish food and about helping all types of businesses to grow, but most importantly to be sustainable. From many years of working closely with food producers, retailers, distributors and restaurants in Ireland and providing practical advice and help, I have the experience and a network of contacts to help maximise efficiency for your business.
Back in the day, before website creation was a focus for us - our own site was amongst the first made! Now we spend an awful lot of time on client projects, but we are keenly aware that we need to set aside some further time for IRC and develop this site further - we're gonna do it soon - so, more to come!
