Photographer Tony turns his focus to connecting businesses with customers
IN a new business venture online, a Ballybunion photographer is helping Kerry businesses connect with customers.
Kerry Echo (www.kerryecho.ie) already provides the most comprehensive directory of Kerry business to be found anywhere, according to the man behind it, Tony Hartney.
"Already, we have over 9,000 businesses listed in a directory that costs the firms featured absolutely nothing," Tony said. "Kerry Echo works by connecting these businesses with potential customers through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Anything they post, we share with our followers thereby giving them far greater exposure."
In just a few short weeks, Kerry Echo has already logged over 60,000 'shares' - by posting information from individual businesses as they arise to Kerry Echo browsers and followers through Facebook and Twitter.
For a small price, Kerry Echo will also prioritise a business, putting it top of its section of the directory and posting on its behalf first and loudest.
Meanwhile, it also provides viewers with a listing of events right across the county for any given day or week.
