Why do I need a website?

Having a website today is as important as having a phone, because customers are looking online first for business information. In order to be  found, your business needs a website with contact details, opening hours, and information about the products and services you sell.

Who is behind this?

Getting Irish Business Online is an initiative from Google, Blacknight, An Post and County and City Enterprise Boards to help small businesses create their first website and understand the opportunities offered by the Internet. We’re open to bringing new partners on board to help build this movement and make it as easy as possible for Irish small businesses to get online and be found.

How can I get involved?

If you're a registered Irish business you can simply go to www.gettingbusinessonline.ie/getstarted.
