We started out in 1998 as a web design company specialising in helping business enhance their processes through online databased solutions back when Clouds drifted aimlessly across the skies. We’re now a full service digital marketing company based in Monaghan and Dublin, Ireland. Well based where you are really cause the clouds are still drifting.
Why the change ?
Since we started, some extremely talented people have taken on the challenge seems we had the right idea and well the honest truth is…. they are better than us. They have the full resources large (unmentionable) companies can offer.
While we were one of the first to produce simple, easy solutions to business problems, others have taken it to a whole new level. And good luck to them we have moved on to marketing businesses. Why? well we found that was what we where better at.
So now we bring our clients from project development, including social media strategic planning, website improvement, Fundamental SEO and content development. And boy we love it.
Well our team was made up of 5 individuals but since the recession we wittled it back down to just the two of us again with a great reliable resource team that only cloud computing can supply. We are a husband and wife team with the Garden as our boardroom, our 3 wonderful children as our inspiration. Our clients keep us on our toes and out of the boardroom.
Wondering what happened to the old team, well they all went on to bright careers else where, we still keep in touch.
Webworks sell both locally , nationally and internationally. We have developed our on-line marketing services to allow our clients take full advantage of the net and social media.
Because you need an on-line marketing services, you should at least take a few seconds to consideration when looking for the right professional to help you manage your marketing account. Below are a few areas to consider when you’re making this important decision:
Will your account be continually managing and optimizing, after its all set up? believe us not all accounts are.
Will you have continual contact with us to ask questions either by a personal visits or by email? Off cours you do.
Will you have continual access to your AdWords account, we suggest you also maintain access to your account. we will give you an email address administrative access to your account, we give out it but many don’t.
Costs and billing
Agencies have many effective ways of charging, but make sure you understand how much of your money is going to Google for the ads served, and how much to the agency for their work. We have a standard per month charge with no hidden extras. You can request copies of Google invoices to see a breakdown of the charges. Make sure you own your account if the contract is terminated. We don’t try and lock you in because your locked out, we’re good like that.
