About West Cork Websites

West Cork Websites is an artisan web design service based on the West Cork coast of Ireland.

Digital platforms and technologies have transformed the business landscape, and now offer small businesses a host of opportunities to attract and engage with new customers that would have been unimaginable just a few short years ago.

The hub of all this digital opportunity, the place people can find out more about you, what you do, and crucially, what you can do for them, is your small business website.  Whether your new customers are just around the corner, or the other side of the world, your website gives you a global shop-window that can convert visitors into leads and leads into paying customers.

The scope of digital business is practically boundless, the potential staggering… and at the centre of it all lies an effective small business website.

That’s where we come in.

We create affordable, effective websites that sit at the centre of your digital business. Are you ready to take your small business to the next level? Get in touch… we’d love to help you.

Who’s behind West Cork Websites?

West Cork Websites is run by Digital Marketing Author, web consultant and online content specialist Calvin Jones. Calvin has been working on IT projects since 1995 and specifically on web projects since 2000, when he worked as a project manager for a tech startup in Cork.

He’s worked on large web projects for the likes of The Sunday Business Post, The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (as it was then known) and Setanta Sport to name a few. He went on to work on his own projects, becoming well versed in the evolving nuances of online marketing, search engine optimisation and, of course, social media along the way.

In 2009 Calvin co-authored (with Damian Ryan) the bestselling book “Understanding Digital Marketing” (published by London-based business publisher Kogan Page), and followed it with “The Best Digital Marketing Campaigns in the World” in 2011 and a second edition of “Understanding Digital Marketing” in 2012.

As well as writing extensively on digital, Calvin continues to work on a consulting basis with businesses of all sizes on a wide range of web, content-marketing and digital marketing initiatives. He’s always been a firm believer in the power of digital to transform the prospects of small local businesses. Through West Cork Websites he’s bringing that belief, experience and expertise, home.
