Planning a Website – Free Workshop

Pete Kelly, 15 Eleven and Gary Mullin of Ion Connect  will host a Free Workshop on Planning a Website in the Ballybane Enterprise Centre on Monday 2nd March at 6.30.

Having a properly functioning website is critical to a comprehensive Digital Marketing strategy. A Responsive website is a must in today’s fast moving information driven society.

Attending this workshop will enable individuals to take a dispassionate view of their requirements for a web presence and establish how they will develop an integrated Digital strategy for their business.

What is a responsive website? Why do I need one?

“Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).”

When considering a new or updated website, you need to ask yourself two important questions.

  • Who do I want to visit my website?
  • How are these people going to visit my website?

Let’s answer these questions.

Q: So who do I want to visit my website?

A: My customers. I want my customers to visit my website so I can showcase my products or services and potentially make a sale. Once you have identified a target market to sell to, we can move to the second question.

Q: How are people going to visit my website?

A: Smartphones are becoming the norm these days. At any time, your website can be viewed by any person on any device. iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets and Windows phones all have an incredible amount of different handsets, each with different screen sizes and resolutions. Designing responsively means that your website content will respond to the size of the device’s screen and reorder so that it displays perfectly on any device.

The infographics below show the percentage of visits to 15Eleven.com during February 2015.

Nearly 40% of all of our traffic has been through mobile devices or tablets. That’s a shocking amount of potential customers that your business could be missing out on by not having a responsive website.

Responsive web design is here to stay – it’s up to you to keep your business up to speed.

We can help transform your web presence with a responsive website.

15 Eleven relaunch with brand new website!

With the New Year and a growing client list comes a brand new website!

The new site reflects the work we are undertaking currently, both in Web Development, Training and Social Media Consulting.

Although 15 Eleven is a young business, we nevertheless see the need to be constantly evolving and keeping pace with the latest trends in the digital world. We feel that the new look website is a great example of that.

We are engaging daily with new clients while continuing to work with the loyal customer base we have built up over the past eighteen months.

Whether it is a new website your organisation needs, or help and advice with your social media strategy, 15 Eleven can help! We can be particularly helpful to small, medium and sole trader businesses. Get in touch via our contact form or call us today to discuss your needs.

We are delighted to be sharing our new look with you and a huge thanks to everyone for their support over the last 18 months – here’s to another exciting year!
