Here’s what you’ve been missing…

This year our eCommerce websites have reached £3m in turnover.
We’ve planned, designed & developed over 30 websites in 2021. We’re currently providing hosting & security for over 150 Businesses in Northern Ireland. 

Here’s some of our client projects & what our clients have to say about us…

Manufacturing Workflow App

Working with one of NI’s Fastest growing companies: Sinc Kitchens – Beacon13 has created a job tracker app for their production work flow. The app follows jobs and items through every step of production. 

The system displays on large screens through the factory and staff use handheld devices to update jobs. “The system will save us tens of thousands throughout the year. And improve quality control to an unbelievable level. This is a game changer for our business.” POK, Sinc Kitchens.

Hospital Payments & Recruitment

Tennessee local hospital: Big South Fork Medical has taken patient payments and staff recruitment into their own hands. Beacon13 has created a new website for the hospital that allows patients to pay their medical bills online.

The team also posts jobs and manages CVs and recruitment through the new website. “The new website improves cashflow and cuts massively on recruitment costs. Beacon13 has been really easy to work with on all aspects of this project.” RL, BSF Medical

Brand Identity, Website & SEO

LMC Drylining provide, specialist cladding, partitions and suspended ceilings for contractors based all over UK & Ireland.  Beacon13 started with designing a new brand identity for LMC, alongside a new sleek website showcasing LMC’s latest projects, allowing potential clients to upload plans & request a quotation online, anytime.

 “The new website has helped us massively with the tendering process, making it more efficient and saving us a lot of time on admin, sales and pricing. Our new logo & branding and brought us great pride in our business.” LMC, LMC Drylining Ltd.

eCommerce, Bookings & SEO

Make Up Pro Store was launched in 2012 by Celebrity Make Up Artist Paddy McGurgan, bringing Professional brands to Northern Ireland. Beacon13 developed a new eCommerce website with offers, free gifts and dispatch & delivery alert plugins which allowed all staff to manage orders, gift vouchers, active offers and discounts easily. The website was also given the ultimate revamp for the year ahead. 

“Beacon13 did a great job on the re-design of our website, they re-organised our plugins to suit our needs and we’re a pleasure to  work with, our new eCommerce solution has helped our ordering, dispatch and delivery process massively. ” GC, the Makeup Pro Store – Belfast.


 Some businesses are still missing out on vital digital services for acquiring and retaining customers.

Businesses who want to truly drive results from their digital marketing efforts need more.

84% of today’s consumers think a website makes your business more credible than companies who only have social media profiles. 

Here’s 5 reasons why your business may be missing the trick…

1. Having a website will attract new potential clients. (even for B2B companies.)

A website will enable customers to see what your brand is about while learning about your products and/or services. By having your own website available to new and existing clients – means sales and bookings can be made at all hours of the day. Your converting while your sleeping.

The majority of companies that don’t have a website say it’s because they sale to other businesses (B2B) . If that’s you, I’m gonna have to call you out on that.

The average B2B buyer now makes an average of 12 online searches before interacting with a suppliers website, and they are already 57% of the way through the buying process before they want to speak with a sales representative.

We’ve helped over 100 construction & manufacturing companies, streamline their business processes with custom CRM setups, smart business apps, emails, hosting & security.

2. Having a website makes your business more professional and increases trust.

While having a good social media following is great, it’s not yours – it’s created by Facebook for Facebook (Or now Meta for Meta).

Having a website will immediately improve the credibility of your business. It can promote a strong impression to new and existing clients and showcases your skills to better position your business on top of your competitors.

Most people don’t trust a business without a good website. 

With our Brand Identity packages from £399 – we can help you build a brand that will drive your business to the next level.

3. You’re In Control (Always!)

Social media platforms are designed for rapid navigation meaning their business model is all about keeping you scrolling through “their” content. Your business is not a priority, it is just another piece of content.

custom-built website grants you full control over how your products or services are presented. With a good website in place you will develop a more personalized user experience that can result in happy users. 

With our website packages which includes, professional emails, contact forms, customer portals, secure payments and much more.

4. Websites are the center of all marketing efforts.

A website can be the first place where potential customers interact with you and learn about your business. It can also be where they land on last, to make a purchase or set up a meeting, because they were redirected from an email, a Facebook ad or an Instagram post.

All your marketing efforts, no matter if your business is operating online or offline, should sprout from and lead to your own, stunning and informative website.

5. Even SME’s with a good website can compete with the major corporate businesses online.

Your website is accessible worldwide, allowing for increased exposure and sales due to an extensive demographic reach. Using good SEO techniques will improve the traffic (potential leads) to your website.

We’ve helped Northern Ireland eCommerce Businesses reach over £3m in annual turnover this year alone.
