Billy's Websites - Websites for the self-employed in Ireland
Frequently Asked Questions:

Below are our most frequently asked questions.

Q. What’s new in v.2021?

Ans. v.2021 of our website package for the self-employed is the latest culmination of all previous versions of our website packages. It includes changes in relation to both design and SEO which we believe will benefit your website’s ranking on the Google search engine in addition to making the services you offer
more clear to website visitors in your local area.

Remember, Google updates it’s search algorithm up to 600 times a year so we generally release new versions of our website package each year which are based upon our experience of what works or doesn’t work in previous versions of our website packages. Each version of our website package should remain
relevant for at least three years and generally much longer.

Q. What makes us different to other website service providers in Ireland and the UK?

Ans. As our v.2021 website packages are ‘Websites with SEO’, any changes that are made to a website may impact on both the design, SEO and security of your new website. Therefore, we make the changes for you to vastly increase the chances of a good ranking on the Google search engine and ultimately appearing
in the first three spots on page one on Google!

As we are a managed website service aimed primarily at the self-employed in Ireland and the UK who have little knowledge of computers, the internet or SEO (i.e. getting on Google), we don’t provide log-in details for your website and we make al requested changes to text and photos on behalf of our self-employed
clients which they can send to us via email with their requested changes. This service is free in year one and covered by our annual renewal charge in future years.

Most other website service providers will design a website for you in, e.g. Wordpress, and you can then make changes and edits to you website yourself. If you believe you would be comfortable managing & editing your website (incl. SEO) yourself, we would recommend using their services instead of our unique managed
website service for the self-employed.

Q. What do you mean by ‘No Knowledge of Websites or Computers Required’?

Ans. We mean exactly that. Your new website is designed and set up for you from start-to-finish. You need absolutely no technical knowledge of computers at all. All you need to do is email us four photos (in landscape mode) of your service e.g. a photo of your work van etc. and we will then design a
FREE sample for you before you proceed to use our services. 

Q. What do you mean by start-to-finish?

Ans. We mean start-to-finish. We will design your website, social network pages and implement our SEO and upload your new website to the internet. We even register your domain name and host your new website for you. You require absolutely no technical knowledge at all. Everything in included in your website package deal so we won’t be asking for more fees after your website has been completed. And, we even explain the services you provide to your potential clients!

Q. What are the costs involved in making future changes to my new website?

Ans. There are no charges in relation to changing text and photos in year one. After year one there is an optional annual fee of €495 (incl. VAT) per annum which covers this service incl. renewal of your domain name, hosting and SSL Certificate. Now, you don’t incur high fees for making those changes
you require in future years!

Q. Can I edit the website myself?

Ans. We make all the changes to text, information and photos on your website for you. Just email us what you wish to change and our team will undergo to make the changes within 48 hours (Monday through Friday). There is no charge for this service in year one and is covered by our optional annual renewal fee in
following years. As our website packages for the self-employed are ‘Websites with SEO’, any changes that are made to a website may impact on both the design, SEO and security of your new website. Therefore, we make the changes for you to increase the chances of a good ranking on the Google search engine. 68% of our new business is referred to us from our existing clients, so it is in our interest to provide a leading after-care service.

Q. Is my new website designed for popular devices, operating systems and browsers?

Ans. Yes. Your new website will work on current popular smartphones, tablets and laptops. There are many different types of devices, operating systems and browsers and visitors can view your website on the most popular ones on the market today.

Q. What about Organic SEO - Will the Google Search Engine find my new website?

Ans. Our SEO (v.2021) is one of the premier SEO services in Ireland today with proven results. Now, local people looking for your service in your area will find you on the Google search engine and it’s managed for you throughout the 1st year!

Please note: Our v.2021 website design process and organic SEO is how we hope to save our self-employed clients money in the medium term by increasing their chances of a high ranking on the Google search engine in their service area. Therefore we will not add any third-party scripts to your website e.g. facebook or google tracking scripts etc.

Q. What about Social Networks e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google My Business and YouTube?

Ans. Yes, we also set-up and design your new Twitter, Pinterest, Google My Business and YouTube business pages. However, your business facebook page must be linked to a persoanl account and we will advise how to set this up on your side.

Q. What about accepting payments online through my website?

Ans. We will add a link to your payment providers checkout page. However, as we are a low cost service and due to increasing EU regulations for payment systems, you will have to choose, set-up and manage your payment system yourself.

Q. Do I have to call up to you in Dublin or do you come down to me?

Ans. Neither. We do it all for you over the phone and by email. You don't need to leave your house to book a flight, buy a book or open a bank account, so why should you need to leave your house to have a real website and it also allows us to offer the best value in Ireland and the UK today. This also allows us to work with the self-employed all over Ireland and the UK.

Q. Is there an annual renewal fee and how much is it?

Ans. There is and it is optional. The annual renewal fee of €495 (incl. VAT) covers Domain Name Renewal, 12 Months Hosting, SSL Certificate and changes to information, text and photos. If you do not wish to continue using our services after one year or wish to change to another service provider, we will help with the transfer process for free. 

To put this annual renewal fee into perspective, if you own a Wordpress website, the annual renewal fee is c. €300 per annum and you must manage your website all by yourself, so if any issues occur, you would either need to learn how to resolve them yourself or hire a developer to solve them for you. This is why our unique managed service for the self-employed is such great value.

Q. Do I own my website and can I switch to another service provider at a future date?

Ans. Yes. The website is registered in your name and address. If you ever wish to move service provider, don't worry, we will help with the transfer for free! We fully understand that a client may outgrow our low cost service and you can always come back to us if it doesn't work out with your new provider. However, the website design & code cannot be transferred over, that is, just the domain name is transferred over to the new service provider.
