It all started over a year ago when a few like minded individuals and myself set about building an online brand and platform for Galway!
A long journey from then to now, that included the following steps:-
Step.1. We identified that the correct domain name to use for this project would be the Geographical name "Galway" and ".com"
Step.2. We then spent a huge amount of time planning the best technologies to use and decided that our key elements needed to include a website with a smartphone application that would look beautiful and that would be easy to navigate around for our audience.
Step.3. From here we needed an amazingly talented designer who understood Galway and its vibrancy and so we subsequently took on the locally based Galway design house www.block5design.com
Step.4. After many hours of planning and "whiteboard meetings" we identified the need for our project to have a strong social media focus along with the new technologies of Smart phone applications.
Step.5. We "wire framed" the layout of the site and planned out the content to create a truly all encompassing online presence for Galway and realised quickly that the best way to do this was to make video's of everything to do with Galway!
Step.6. Started networking and getting content providers from all over the city and county.
AND NOW... The project is pre-launch but is live and is very much "alive and social" just like Galway!
The official launch is set to be this coming July but already we have some fantastic successes with an audience of over 60,000 followers, fans and watchers on our social channels including vimeo, youtube, facebook and twitter.
So, please watch our videos and visit our site over the coming months before we launch to the public domain and help us represent Galway by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas, articles or content that you would like us to include on this platform for Galway.
I hope that you will see and share in our vision and support this project by talking positively to all of those around you about it and by encouraging your local business community to become members of this dedicated online community for Galway in return we will come to their place of work and make a video of their business and create a beautiful membership microsite for them on our website which will also integrate with our soon to come Galway app and social media channels.
