Carmel Farnan is a well establised psychotherapist and counselor who has been accredited since 2001 and practicing in the Skerries community for several years.
Although her business has grown steadily since starting, she did notice that her favoured methods of advertising using leaflet drops and taking out ads in local newspapers were providing smaller returns.
Leaflets, in particular, required her time to write the copy, get a professional to design the leaflet, engage a printer and hire a leaflet distribution company. Even after all this work, there was no guarantee that the leaflets wouldn't end up in a bin somewhere, unread.
Not to mention, she wasn't particularly happy about the environmental impact of leaflets.
Carmel knew that a web site was the way to go and had intended for years to "get around to it", but felt she didn't have the time or expertise to tackle the job.
Webspeed met with her and provided ideas about the design and look of the web site and even generated a mock-up for her to see before committing.
As Carmel was very busy in her day-to-day work and continued professional studies, she found it difficult to put together the copy for the site. Webspeed were able to help with this as well - drafting copy based on conversations with and notes from Carmel - and then allowing her to have final editorial control.
Finally, we set up photography sessions for Carmel in her office at a time that suited her.
Carmel discovered that working with Webspeed took the hassle out of getting a web site up and running ... without interrupting her daily business.
"I have been more than happy with the service that Webspeed have provided to me. And while I worried that getting a web site up and running would take too much of my time, they were there at each step to facilitate the process - with copy writing, design ideas and even organising a photographer. I would unreservedly recommend Webspeed to any small business owner who is afraid that a web site will cost too much in terms of time and money. They deliver what they promise: a quality web site at a very competitive price. In fact I’m so delighted with the service I got from Webspeed that I have strongly recommended them to other business owners who are also equally delighted" - Carmel Farnan
