    Omniserve.ie have given us a competition for a business website closing this Friday 29th August.

    Details below:

    We are offering 1 free website to Boards readers of this forum. To win this website on this coming Friday (29th August) we will select the best slogan posted to this thread that starts with

    “Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because …………”

    The free website includes:

    1. Domain registration of an extension of your choice.
    2. Hosting of your email and website.
    3. Distillation of your requirements and any unique content you want to
    provide using our intelligent "Collecting Your Input" online form.
    4. Organising of your content into a format for the site build.
    5. Basic optimization of your site focusing on your name, business you
    are in and geographical location.
    5. An online meeting with one of our staff where you are taken through the
    build of your site and trained in how to make changes and use the CM4all
    control panel to do this.
    6. Shown how to use features such as blogs that can get you more business
    (here's an example of a client making good use of this to get more gigs for
    their band: http://www.blackwaterband.ie/5930.html ).
    7. Free entry of your new site in our blog which, thanks to being indexed
    every couple of minutes by Google, ensures that your business name and
    primary product area appears in Google organic results very quickly. This
    free post also includes a link to your site and we have tracked
    that click throughs to completed websites from our blog have occurred within minutes of
    the post being indexed.

  • Thanks Vexorg.

    Due to the difficult economic times and the changing way people search for new services(ie via Google rather than traditional methods) small businesses need every help they can get in getting new business from the web. Our objective is to try and get as many small Irish businesses as possible live on the web in the shortest possible time.

    We are offering 2 free websites for the best reply to the slogan, one for readers of the Entrepreneurial & Business Management forum and one for readers of the Web Development & Design forum.

    I am happy to answer any questions relevant to our competition or the new Omniserve offering.

    Regards Eoin




  • “Small businesses need a website these days because it helps small businesses create big business”

  • “Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because of snake oil salesmen (like someone we know).”

  • Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because a crappy template website should double their business*

  • 6. Shown how to use features such as blogs that can get you more business
    (here's an example of a client making good use of this to get more gigs for
    their band: http://www.blackwaterband.ie/5930.html ).

    I like what ye are doing here

    Shows that the band want people to really think they've created the website themselves :) and that they haven't sold out and used a professional agency / freelancer / student / friend to design the site for them




  • A true example of -- you pay for what you get.




  • Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because, as the stone age needed the wheel, as the youth of today need social networking as and as Eastern Europeans need Lidi, without it! … Your on your on in this country". :p

    Ps I am in the middle of getting a website designed by the slowest company on earth! – Please release me from this immortal torture. :eek:

    Hi, your slogan assuming thats what your after, does it have to read "Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because"?

    ..or is this to be an opening paragraph or something else ?

    Which words do you wish to stress, Irish, small businesses, website etc.. any more ?




  • Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because.... to stay ahead the web is read.


    Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because .....to survive business must go live.

  • Well you're not paying for anything in this case are ya?
    Omniserve were good enough to run a Competition for Boardsies and all it gets is begrudging comments from people who coincidently have Web Design links in their Sigs.

    I'm not talking about the competition, if there giving away free webdesign then hey - its free. And there contributing to the board (well, free promotion :p). But paying for that type of design, well I suppose if you need something cheap and cheerful..

    As for the competition itself, bare in mind that this is not the only company to have run a competition with Boards in the past ;)

    But ya, iv gone off the point at hand in this topic. Best of luck to all who enter the competition. Ill throw in a quicky for the craic..

    "Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because eCommerce is the future of business - without a web presence, your company is not reaching its full potential."

    "Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because times have changed - eCommerce is the future for a successful business."

    "Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because an internet presence is key to a successful business"

    ;)

    Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because you would be DAFT.ie not to!

    Is this what the new commercially oriented boards will be like. Pimping out forums for a few hundred quid so daft.ie can justify an investment.

    Also I would like to bring it to the attention of the owners of the comp that there website claim is false. That sample website is not first for that search key. its on the first page but half way down it. False Advertising.




  • “Small businesses need a website these days because if you're not online you'll be benign”

    “Small businesses need a website these days because without one, you're out of sight”

    “Small businesses need a website these days because an online presence delivers real world benefits”

    Can you explain this?

    Was done before Daft invested, I don't see much of a problem with it myself. Though I don't see how it benefits the owners - it benefits probably the client and the end user more.
    Also I would like to bring it to the attention of the owners of the comp that there website claim is false. That sample website is not first for that search key. its on the first page but half way down it. False Advertising.

    Meh, im sure it was correct at time of print.

    There pretty good, but I don't get the first one?




  • Some excellent suggestions so far, thanks everyone. One I was toying with was ... "because without one your business doesn't exist as far as Google is concerned" (a bit long winded though, maybe "Your business is invisible to Google").

    Re Google: Seeing as a lot of people in the Irish internet community were interested in how this worked we put up an information page here on it:

    http://omniserve.digiweb.ie/testimonials.html Just click on the "How It Works" button under the Google image on the right hand side.

    Regards Eoin

    Irish small businesses need a website now more than ever because, websites provide a cost-effective way of communicating, your products and services 24/7.

    So by including a link from a site that's popular with Google, you speed up the inclusion ranking process ?

    Sounds like something everyone with a profile page of completed projects would do anyway, no ?

    Fair play if you can sell it as something more than that!
