My name is Brian O’Neill and here at Fresh Ideas I offer website creation, app development and marketing consultancy for a range of local businesses, large and small.

Why choose me for your next web project?

Sites that are fast and easy to use

Research by Google tells us that over half of us abandon a mobile website if the page takes longer than 3 seconds to load! As well as that, the faster the site the higher it ranks on Google search engines. My sites are fast to load, easy to use and work across mobile, tablet and desktop.

A stress free & friendly service

I talk plain English and won’t bombard you with technical terms. My clients have included businesses of all sizes from self-employed individuals to large companies. I can work to your timescale and budget so don’t hesitate to contact me for a free quote.

Business and marketing know-how

With a background in marketing as well as IT, I understand the commercial goals of your business – whether it is to generate more sales or to promote your product or service, I will create a site that delivers for you. I have over 20 years’ experience in website design and was Creative Director at one of the leading Irish online marketing agencies.

PREVIOUS WORK

The Supernode is a radical million billion euro project to create a Europe wide electrical grid. For this project we made use of animation, if you look at the homepage you will see the wind turbines and other elements moving. I created the site in conjunction with PR Smith and Davymac. Even with the animation the site is still very fast to load.

I am part of the team at Slugger O’Toole – Northern Ireland’s leading website for debate. I created and manage the current version of the site. Slugger is very popular with on average 100,000 readers a month who leave 10,000 comments on posts. Despite its popularly I have optimised the site to make sure that it still loads in 1 second and works across all devices.

CS Suppliers is one of Northern Ireland’s leading independent electrical retailers. I created their new ecommerce site as well as helping them sell on other platforms like Ebay and Amazon. By going online they have expanded their customer base to all of the UK and Ireland, not just the Belfast area. I also created the site for their CS Rentals business, and since going online rental applications have dramatically increased.

For this project I created the name and branding for the client as well as the website. The site is extremely fast to load and has a clean style to make it more appealing to new clients. The clear call to action to book online resulted in an 80% increase in clients booking online vs phoning. You can view the client’s previous site here to see how effective the re-brand was.
