Online Marketing in Galway
Online Marketing in Galway was set up in August of 2011 as a network for local marketers and businesses in the West of Ireland to share knowledge and best practice techniques for marketing and increasing awareness online. From time to time we will announce new and low cost tools that we have come across.
This not-for-profit group was set up by Maricka Burke-Keogh, a former Google employee who recently moved back to Galway as senior online marketing exec in Enerit – an energy management software company.
We are not trying to say in every case that a sophisticated e-commerce solution is necessary, however having even just a basic web presence to describe your businesses services, products, list your contact details, etc, is achievable for any business and with so many tools out there that these days small businesses can take advantage of it doesn’t make sense not to.
The network realises that not all businesses can afford a marketing team or indeed a dedicated marketing member of staff. It points out however that the tools and news announced within the network (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and its website) more often than not are free or low cost tools that are easy to use or those which can often be figured out after a bit of dedication and ‘googling’.
We always encourage everyone to get involved so please feel free to leave messages for the moderator or start a discussion on our facebook or LinkedIn wall wall. Please note all posts are monitored on a daily basis and explicit advertising, messages etc will not be permitted.
