This website is run by one volunteer but it costs money to keep it going. You can help out with these costs and avail of a tempting and authentically local advertising opportunity by registering as a sponsor.
Three, six and twelve month options are available.
* You will manage your own profile and enter information and updates yourself. If you wish, the site administrator can do this for you for an additional fee. Note that political organisations are excluded from the What's On and Noticeboard functions.
To ensure site integrity, businesses with a premises on Delvin's Main Street have been included irrespective of whether a payment plan is in place, but the information provided is limited. These listings are added at the discretion of the website owner. Discretionary plans can also be upgraded to paid plans on request.
This is a community website but it is professionally managed and some FAQs are included below.
I no-longer commit to sharing individual listings each month. This was very time consuming and some people forgot that I do this voluntarily and that I get very little back from it. I will however share links to the directory (which is available 24/7/365 btw!) on a regular basis. In addition, businesses and community groups can always tag @delvin.westmeath in their posts and I will occasionally share them - note that I won't share everything you post though!
Simple. This website costs money to run and it does not receive public funding. It is not unreasonable to ask a business for a contribution towards website costs. Think about it - if you charge for a product or service with the intention of making a profit, you should not expect a volunteer to run a website like this and cover the costs associated with it themselves while giving you free advertising!
Please also note that if you advertise in a "local" newspaper, you will pay far more and your advert may not be seen when people are actually looking for your services.
To maintain the integrity of the website, businesses with a premises on the main street (from St. Mary's Church to the Church of the Assumption only) will be listed, irrespective of whether they contribute or not. They will however only receive a basic listing (literally a name and address). In addition, not-for-profit community organisations will receive more detailed discretionary listings.
Yes of course it does, but that is private information and is between myself, my accountant and Revenue.
