A Fresh Way to Market your Business

How we drive traffic to our site

SEO – Search engine optimization is the process of improving the quality and quantity of traffic to a website or a web page from search engines.

  • On any given day, people conduct more than 2.2 million searches. And that’s just on Google! To say nothing of the other search engines out there. Therefore, showing up on the front page of Google can be the deciding factor between a business that’s thriving and one that’s, well, bankrupt.

  • The first 5 results on Google get 67% of the clicks!

  • o We work diligently with our developers to have the best SEO/Google presence possible. Driving more traffic to our site, which drives more traffic/clients to you!

Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter all of these sites factor into how a site ranks in Google. We are promoting our site and your businesses on all social media pages, which in turn again increases our ranking in Google.

Brexit can benefit Northern Ireland Businesses

Due to Brexit and the Northern Ireland protocol many EU (and other countries) companies will be looking for Businesses in Northern Ireland which is why a Northern Ireland based businesses directory is THE place to advertise. We are promoting our site worldwide, any businesses wanting to take advantage of the Northern Ireland Protocol and the fact that Northern Ireland is still part of the EU single market will be looking here.

A package to suit your needs and budget

Basic – The Basic package is good for anyone who has been using Facebook and Instagram to advertise but wants to test if a Businesses directory is the way to go. With the basic package you can have your Logo, link to your website and a few pics. If you do not have a website you will still get an ad that will get you noticed.

Standard – The Standard package is for someone who wants to continue advertising but does not need all the features of the Premium package. You still have your logo, link to your website, more pics, a video plus a pdf or word doc.

Premium – The Premium package has it all! Logo, website link, links to social media, pics, videos, pdfs. List your business in more than 1 category, advertise any promotion in its own category.
