magine, if you will, one sparkling little website dedicated to one sparkling little square patch of Wicklow.
Now, try to imagine just one eejit dedicating eight years of their life – seven days a week, 365 days a year – to that onelittle website.
Hey, welcome to de Greystones Guide, and me, Paul Byrne, the big eejit in question. Part town crier, part village idiot, with the Guide, you get a press agent, journalist, layout artist, marketing whizz, copywriter, photographer, agony uncle and the biggest local media outlet around (with over 250,000 hits a month) all rolled into one.
Packed with interviews, news, events, the occasional bout of nonsense and the kind of historical archives that would make Derek Paine twerk in his grave, the Guide is the crazy glue that holds this town together, celebrating our past and looking to our future whilst, most importantly, making sure that we have a comprehensive record of Greystones’ today. Along with a fair idea of what’s happening tomorrow too.
Separating the facts from the Forum, the selfless acts from the selfie twats, the helping hand from the sponsored spam, this is PR without the BS, offering a haven away from the shouting match that is social media. There are no ads for Des Kelly Carpets here, no Paddy Power carrots dangling over our logo. The Guide is far more about community than commerce, and our stupidly low prices reflect that.
And we’re not afraid to call a spade a little feckin’ shovel either.
Ultimately, we’re all about celebrating the good ship Greystones, and all who sail in her. And we reach out far beyond your social media bubble, spreading good news – and hot gossip! – like wildfire all across de land.
Okay, here’s the lowdown…
You can be part of the Guide for as little as €10 – which gives you a paragraph (with info, links, contact details) for a month on our calendar, seasonal and promotional listings, such as the front-page, daily-updated and daily-sharedYour Greystones Week and Your Greystones Specials, plus Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Summer Camp round-ups, etc, So, think small ads, only, you know, sexy.
Taking a step up, you can have your own customised, shareable, huggable GG page – with all your info, links, contact details, images, etc – for just €25, running on the Guide for four months. This will also include you in all our daily-updated, daily-shared front-page listings.
If you’re feeling a little wild and crazy, you can jump all of the above up to a What’s Hot This Week banner presence for €35 – which gets you a Burnaby Blitz; one week on the cover (three days on WHTW; four days on Recommended), as well as an inpost teaser on daily posts for a week. This post would be on the Guide for five months. Boom!
Alternatively, if you have your own website page that you’d simply like people to go pay some love and attention to, we can do a daily inpost teaser link [left] for two weeks for just €35, or four weeks for just €50, sending people straight to your online HQ.
The most popular Guide promotion is our yearlong membership, available for just €95 (or €10 a month), which comes with your own customised GG directory page, a Burnaby Blitz week (your What’s This Week cover feature alsolinked on daily posts) plus three free feature posts (each worth €25), and automatic inclusion in all calendar and promotional listings. For 12 whole months. If you’re planning on a busy year, this package is also available at €15 a month or €150 for the year, which includes all of the above but with eight free feature pages (worth €200 alone).
There’s also a VIP package at €250 (available at €25 a month too), which again includes all of the above but, instead of your regular posts, you get 12 full-blown What’s Hot This Week cover posts (worth €35 each), and a front cover interview (worth €75). All told, this package is worth €590.
You can also just have your own GG page for the year without any of the bells or whistles for just €30 – or €50, if you’d also like to also be part of all our calendar, seasonal and promotional listings. If you just want to be included in the Guide’s free Business Listings, you can email your basic details (including any links or contact details) to email@example.com.
We’re going to introduce a few more features over the coming months and years, as we strive to make this unique local site even more effective. Suffice to say, we’re active seven days a week – which may explain why we’re getting more online readers than any other local media. Heck, at 250,000 hits a month, we’re getting even more thanThe Sunday Business Post.
Also, worth comparingenjoymalahide.com‘syearly fee of €660, with 45,000 hits a month, to the Guide’s yearly membership of €95 with over 250,000 hits a month. Be! The! Jiggers!
