The Red Door is delighted to announce that we have won the ‘Online Marketing Excellence’ award sponsored by SuperValu at the 2016 Buncrana Chamber of Commerce Awards. The award was presented at a glamourous black tie event in the Inishowen Gateway Hotel on Saturday 19th November with hundreds of guests from Buncrana’s businesses in attendance. Keynote speaker on the night was the inspirational Niall McGarry, founder of joe.ie and her.ie.
MC Nicholas Crossan said that the judges praised our strong online presence on the platforms where our customers are and our active engagement with them throughout their purchase journey. It also was noted that the online marketing complements the traditional tactics making up the overall marketing strategy for the company.
This award win comes less than six months since the launch of our responsive website which is the heart of our online marketing strategy. A special thanks goes to Pretty Owl Designs based in Letterkenny for their work in producing a professional and user-friendly platform for prospective restaurant, accommodation and wedding customers to view what The Red Door has to offer. Our website also features the ability to purchase gift vouchers which are delivered directly by email.
It is an honour for us to win such a prestigious local award from Buncrana Chamber of Commerce. Although we welcome visitors from all corners of the country and world, it is our regular customers that support us all year round and this local recognition is a tremendous boost to our profile in Buncrana and Inishowen.
The Red Door was also a finalist in the ‘Hospitality Excellence’ category and we extend our congratulations to the Ubiquitous Restaurant in Buncrana who were the winners in this category.
Congratulations to all the winners and finalists on the night and well done to the Inishowen Gateway for their hosting.
