MY OTHER BUSINESS.....

MY OTHER BUSINESS.....

When I started Lúnasa three years ago I knew it was important to have an online presence but in practical terms I didn't really understand what that meant. Some well timely workshops by Mayo LEO and I started to learn about twitter, Facebook pages and search engine optimisation. I never dreamed that the shop would take off so much that I'd be employing people and so as the physical shop grew the online shop got pushed to the side a little.

It's always been on my to do list but I knew the reality of it - it's not a quick fix or an easy way to get sales. It's not a case of throw something together and the sales will come, it's a full time job. And one that's taken a bit longer to master as I'm having to self teach as I go along. I suppose here is where I'd like to acknowledge and thank the Mayo Local Enterprise Office & Mayo Ideas Lab for their mentoring support, the workshops they provide and all the support. It's great not to feel like I'm completely alone in this venture.  

I researched long and hard about what to include and I came up with a solution... but I suppose like with the shop I know what I like and don't like and have my own ideas. However, the difference is with our online shop I don't have the experience. Retail is my business and it has been for a long time, whereas technology has been a steep learning experience. It's going to be a lot about trial and error and that's where you come in. 

So I got my domain name www.lunasa.co

We will be selling our Autentíco paint, our 'Made in Mayo' products and for those people living away we will shortly be offering hampers with free delivery in Ireland. I suppose I hope you'll use it to send gifts to friends away and those of you away to send gifts to people back home. 

​I'm adding more products each day and I'm hoping that you might have a look and let me know what you think.

In today's world a hot drink to go is the norm but when it comes to the cost of that drink not all coffee is the same. I don't mean the price, of course that will differ from place to place but the actual coffee can cost a lot more than we bargained for.

Many of us don't like Mondays at the best of times, but the decorations are down, the festivities are over, we spent more than we planned and pay day feels like its never going to come around. But it doesn't have to be.
