WhatsApp 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 Email 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.ie
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Guardian:India says it intends to launch a tender for 100 gigawatts of solar power, 10 times the size of the current largest solar tender in the world–another Indian project scheduled to open for bids next month.But analysts have said the country has neither the infrastructure nor the energy demand to warrant installing so much solar capacity in one go, saying the announcement reflects the scale of India’s ambition to become a renewable energy leader.It is one of several green power promises made by Delhi this month on the back of continually falling renewables prices, with implications for coal projects including the proposed Adani Group mine in Queensland, Australia.The Indian power minister R.K. Singh flagged the 100 GW tender at an event in Delhi last week. While discussing a world record 10 GW solar tender set to launch in July, Singh reportedly told the audience: “Now [we] will bring out a bid of one lakh megawatts which would also include solar manufacturing and storage.”One lakh refers to 100,000 in the south Asian numbering system, equivalent to 100 GW. His office confirmed the plan to the Guardian but declined to provide further details other than that the tender would be launched “in the near future”.The unscheduled announcement surprised some energy policy specialists who said it was unrealistic and unnecessary. “I don’t think a 100 GW tender makes a lot of sense,” said Tim Buckley, a director at the pro-renewables Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, but adding he thought the plan was a “brilliant statement of intent.”More: India’s huge solar ambitions could push coal further into shade India’s huge solar goal a ‘brilliant statement of intent’
–Margareth S. Aritonang contributed to this story.Topics : Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said he had formally proposed imposing a territorial quarantine on the capital, prohibiting all activities in the city except for those related to energy, food, health, communications and finance. However, he abided by the central government’s decision not to do so. “For two weeks, Jakarta has closed schools, workplaces and places of worship and other public centers, but we have limited authority to enforce this. That is why we hoped there would be legal restrictions,” he said.The President has resisted the idea of imposing a national lockdown, saying it would be unsuitable for Indonesian society and has instead called on the public to practice social distancing as a preventive measure to contain the outbreak.A draft government regulation on health quarantine, a copy of which was obtained by The Jakarta Post, however, does not stipulate sanctions for those failing to abide by the social-restrictions order.National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) head Doni Monardo said the government would base its regulations on the battle against COVID-19 on three laws: Law No. 24/2007 on Disaster Response, the Health Quarantine Law and Government Regulation in Lieu of Law No.23/1959 on civil emergency (Perppu 23/1959). “The government will certainly not follow [policies that have] been ineffective in other countries. In handling disasters, [a policy] should not create a new problem, or a new disaster,” he said at a press conference, while referring to the possibility of imposing a lockdown. Doni gave an assurance that while preparing regulations, the government would guarantee the supply of staple commodities in all areas in the country, including medical supplies such as face masks, hand sanitizer and disinfectant.Jakarta Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Yusri Yunus said the police had yet to restrict toll road access despite a drill that was exercised on Sunday. “Jakarta has yet to be quarantined. That is a decision for the central government,” he said.But Yusri said police personnel in the capital were ready if and when the government decided to do so.Constitutional law expert from Jakarta-based Jentera School of Law Bivitri Susanti said the use of the civil emergency status was misguided in the context of handling the COVID-19 outbreak since the situation, as stipulated in Perppu No.23/1959, implied a heavy-handed security approach.“The regulation was issued in 1959 when Indonesia was dealing with armed rebellions. Its approach is very much security-based,” Bivitri told the Post over the phone. “Whereas we are dealing with a virus, not an insurgency.”There are four quarantine measures stipulated in the Health Quarantine Law, namely home quarantine, hospital quarantine, territorial quarantine and large-scale social distancing.The 2018 law defines a territorial quarantine as restrictions on entry into a specific territory deemed to be a hotspot of disease transmission or contamination area, while large-scale social distancing measures relate to the restriction on activities within specified areas to prevent the transmission of disease or contamination.Bivitri said combining the large-scale social distancing, which implies some form of restriction on social activities, with a territorial quarantine, which implies restrictions at points of entry into a specific area, was the best possible way for the country to contain the transmission of the viral disease under existing legal mechanisms.The government could allow for territorial quarantines on a smaller scale, Bivitri said, given that imposing a nationwide territorial quarantine, according to the 2018 law, entailed that the central government would provide all the basic necessities for its citizens during the period.“For me, the failure of the central government, up to this point, to provide instructions [to the regional administrations] has confused the regional administrations. Don’t blame the regional administrations [for enacting various policies] because there has not yet been any directive from [the central government],” said Bivitri. (trn) The President also instructed his aides to craft a clear regulation to act as guidance for regional administrations to implement the large-scale social distancing, although he added that the final decision on quarantine measures rested with the central government.“The policy [to announce] health quarantine, including territorial quarantines, is within the authority of the central government, not regional administrations. I hope that all ministers ensure that the central and regional governments have the same vision and policy,” he said.The Jokowi administration has been under pressure to impose a lockdown on the capital, which has become the region worst-hit by the COVID-19 outbreak. Indonesia recorded 1,414 cases with 122 deaths as of Monday. Jakarta accounted for 698 cases and 74 deaths. Provincial and city administrations, as well as communities, have begun to take initiatives to close their borders to prevent the spread of the outbreak to their regions. But with Jokowi’s decision, these measures cannot be described as a “lockdown” or “quarantine”, because only the central government has the power impose such measures. While once again dismissing the option of imposing a lockdown on the capital, the government said on Monday that it would instead impose stricter regulations on social distancing coupled with “civil emergency measures”, a move that critics warn could exacerbate the coronavirus crisis. After a virtual Cabinet meeting on Monday, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo instructed his Cabinet to prepare regulations on mass social distancing based on Law No. 6/2018 on Health Quarantine that restricts movement in particular regions.“I ask that large-scale social restrictions and physical distancing policies be enforced more strictly and more effectively, which is why I said they should be coupled with civil-emergency policies,” Jokowi said in a teleconferenced meeting from Bogor Palace, West Java.
