Love your business, Get it on line now – FREE( Clare Businesses) + Free E-Ecommerce Magento Go Website

Dear all,

I run a smalll business called and understand the importance of being online.

It’s a ( steep) learning curve, but like anything, you can learn it, and ultimately it will benefit your business! So below is some information I received by email.

Getting Your Business Online couldn’t be easier….
Get a FREE website for your Business
Google, Blacknight, An Post and the County and City Enterprise Boards have come together to create Getting Irish Business Online. We’re taking the time, hassle and cost out of getting a website so that you can get on with running your business.
Here’s what you’ll get:
·                                 Free easy to update website
·                                 Free .ie .eu .biz or .com domain for first year
·                                 Ongoing tips and education 
This training is for Clare SME’s including sole traders that do not have a website or an online presence to include – Retail sector, Professional sector, Construction Industry, Food, Craft, Tourism, Hospitality sectors, etc.  

Will I get a real website at the end of the training session?

Yes. The training session is only 3 hours. The objective is for you to have a website for your business at the end of the session. It will go live within 24 hours. After that you can update or change the complete look of your website at any time.
Take a look at a website for Spartan Fitness that has been created using the Blacknight tool. It is a professional website with all the details that a potential customer will need to make a decision about their services.

How easy and hassle free is getting a professional website?

The aim is to make it very easy but you can be the judge! The training will bring a small group through the process step by step.  If you are familiar with the web and have any experience of email, powerpoint or facebook you will easily learn how to build a website – you don’t need to be a technical whizkid to build your website using the Blacknight tool. After the training, Google and Blacknight offer lots of ongoing support.
Your website will have all the latest features such as Google AnalyticsYouTube videos, Search Engine Optimisation,Google MapsTwitter Feeds etc.
