#ShopLimerick: Taking the first steps into the digital marketplace

first_imgWhatsApp Facebook Noel Davidson Entrepreneurs AcademyFOR small businesses looking to get their products online fast, a monthly subscription to sell on marketplaces such as Shopify or Etsy is a good option.That’s according to Noel Davidson, lead trainer with the Entrepreneurs Academy, which delivers training for Local Enterprise Offices across the country.A level up from that comes off-the-shelf website builders such as Wix, Weebly and Squarespace, he says. By paying a monthly subscription, small business can use these tools to quickly and easily build a website, choosing from a selection of templates.“The downside is once you stop paying the subscription, you lose your website. The free version of these tools will give you a generic “@squarespace.com” website address, for example, but that may not look as professional,” says Davidson.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “You can buy a personalised website address option from these providers, but you will have to sort out a personalised email address yourself.“A website that looks great but doesn’t do a lot is really just a brochure and it won’t drive much business“The next level up is website builder WordPress, and paying for hosting with a separate provider. This gives businesses a branded email address.“It also provides the best option of future-proofing an online presence, with the ability to add downloadable plug-ins as a business’s needs grow. One such is the free WooCommerce plug-in from WordPress. You can bolt it on to your website and you are up and running in minutes with a full ecommerce platform,” says Davidson.All the platforms have easy ways to install a payment gateway such as Paypal, Stripe or Elavon. However, Squarespace, Wix and Weebly charge a fee for this to be switched on. With all payment options, when something is sold on your website, you pay a small percentage to the provider when the payment is processed.“A lot of website designers build for WordPress so if, at some stage, you want to link your accounting package to it, you can.”Features such as livechat or a booking engine are among other plug-ins.“Our advice is to give the business as much flexibility as possible, so a self-hosted WordPress website on one of the local Irish hosting companies is probably preferable. Hosting costs are about €70 to €80 a year.An SSL certificate, another plug-in that protects sensitive information such as credit card information, usernames and passwords, will cost about the same annually.“Google Ads is where Google displays your ad when people search for products and services like yours. You pay for results, like when someone clicks your ad to call your business or visit your website.If you don’t have budget for that, you can help yourself in other ways. It’s about putting yourself in customers’ shoes. A chiropractor may have the word ‘chiropractor’ all over their website, but if potential customers use the search phrase ‘back pain’, local chiropractors may miss out.“Ask your customers how they found you – that’s the easiest way to source search terms. Update your website regularly with the search terms customers are using, perhaps through a value-add blog or company updates. Glowing reviews and testimonials from customers also cut through”, he explained.Read the Limerick Post Newspaper’s guide to local retailers HERE Print BusinessNews#ShopLimerick: Taking the first steps into the digital marketplaceBy Staff Reporter – December 2, 2020 80 Emailcenter_img Linkedin Twitter Advertisement Previous articleNew fuel and fast food outlet plazas on Galway RoadNext article#ShopLimerick: Finding a way out of the digital desert Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

Julius Randle, Lakers put on show for LeBron James in win over Cavaliers

first_imgLOS ANGELES – LeBron James spent four days in L.A., basking the adoration of Lakers fans. Everywhere he turned was met with talk of his pending free agency and the Lakers interest in snagging him. There were billboards and seemingly endless fodder for talk radio and social media.On Sunday, however, the four-time MVP received the most impressive recruiting pitch yet. Playing in front of a sellout Staples Center crowd, including curious celebrities who came out of years of hiding to welcome James, the Lakers blew out the Cavaliers 127-113.With the win, they sent a clear message: The Lakers are ready to welcome a star.  And they’d sure like it to be James. “I only played 15 games with the Cavs,” said Thomas, who was sidelined for seven months after last year’s playoffs due to a hip injury. “So it wasn’t like it was a revenge game. I keep saying the world knows what I bring, so I don’t got to play so good just to show them what they gave away.“It’s nothing like that. I have really close friends on that team, and those guys are great guys, they just made a business decision, and I’m trying to move on … for the most part.”James finished with 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists before taking an early seat with 6:24 left in the game after the Lakers lead grew to a game-high 21 points.It was James’ 30th, and possibly final, game against the Lakers. Entering Sunday, he had averaged 27.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 7.3 assists against L.A.“You saw the crowd,” said Ball, who finished with five points, seven assists and three rebounds. “Everybody came to see him. It’s a lot of fun, especially when he’s in the building. I didn’t play the way I wanted to play but I’m always for a team win.”While James was the draw, Randle was the star. Since moving into the starting lineup in December, Randle has played the best basketball of his career, and Sunday was the acme of that stretch.He played 38 minutes, and was a bruising presence.“He’s pretty much the enforcer for our team both offensively and defensively,” Ball said, “so kind of just give him the ball and he does what he want to do, throws guys around and gets the ball in the basket.”Coach Luke Walton joked “it was nice having (Randle) back” after he registered two quiet games against the Nuggets and Orlando Magic.“He was unbelievable tonight and still has room to improve,” Walton said.Randle said in the third quarter Walton told Randle he was the best one-on-one defender in the league, and sent him out to try to contain James.After James scored on a layup with 4:57 left in the third quarter to tie the game at 76, the Lakers went on a 22-3 run to turn a close game into a rout.“Obviously I had the challenge of guarding the best player in the game,” Randle said, “so you know I love to take that challenge and take it personal. He’s an amazing player, there’s not much you can do just try to make it tough.”For the Lakers, it was their sixth win in the last eight games and one of their most impressive. It raises questions, however, about the viability of the Cavaliers (38-28) as a championship contender. And, of course, a failure to send James to his seventh straight NBA Finals would likely work in the favor of teams trying to woo James.The Lakers on Sunday did their part.PreviousCleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is guarded by Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball in the first half.

In a game oozing with subplots, Thomas and Randle represented two of the juiciest.If the Lakers are successful in their known plan to sign two max free agents, the Lakers would likely be priced out of retaining Randle, who is a restricted free agent. Thomas, meanwhile, spent the night chirping in the direction of the Cavaliers bench, but said his words were for boxer Floyd Mayweather – “one of my best friends,” Thomas said – and not Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue, whom Thomas said he did not speak with.last_img read more
