We developed a custom news website for Galway Daily with the goal of delivering a site that was visually pleasing, but that also had strong content management capabilities. The editor needed to be able to assign writers permissions that would determine the type of posts they could make on the site and whether their articles needed to be reviewed before going live. It was essential the site had a well thought out structure, with clearly defined categories and strategically placed advertisements
In the space of just 6 months Galway Daily has grown to over 30,000 unique monthly visitors and over 5,000 Facebook likes. Within this time the site has suffered no down time or lags in speed. Galway Daily is now a well recognised news outlet in Galway and has developed a strong online presence across search engines and social media. Shortly after launch we received feedback from Galway Daily indicating that over 80% of their users were browsing the site on mobile. In response to this we developed a Galway Daily mobile application for iOS and Android. This provided mobile visitors with a cleaner user experience.
