Affordable Web & Marketing Solutions

Helping small business owners improve their online presence to reach new customers & grow their businesses.

Welcome to Argyll's Virtual Marketplace!

An online hub offering you simple solutions to showcase your products & services, while we encourage fans & residents of Argyll to spend locally and support small businesses like you.

Want to stand out online but don't know where to start?

Now more than ever is the time to show up and stand out online, but most small businesses lack the time and expertise to do so alone. When you're not in the know, the digital world can be daunting and rob you of your time! You don't want to waste valuable resources on something that doesn't get results.

Reach new customers

As entrepreneurs, we know what it feels like to wear multiple hats and lack the resources needed to reach your business goals & potential.

Like you, we are frustrated by big business & online giants having the upper hand over smaller, rural enterprises and believe nobody should be held back by digital overwhelm.

Convenience is Key

For both business and consumer, Argyll is a sprawling area and business owners are often at the mercy of the short tourist season and passing footfall. But there may be an untapped customer base not so far from your doorstep...the average Joe would much rather buy from a local trader than an online giant, if only there was a convenient way to do so!

The Market Argyll Promise

Affordable solutions to suit your business needs.

Simple processes that respect & value your time!

Approachable service to break down the tech barrier and overcome overwhelm.

How does it work?

Remember the days when weekend markets would be bustling full of customers ready to buy produce and wares from local traders?

Well, the Market Argyll platform will act as that virtual market-place for those customers to visit. You can set up your online stall to showcase your products & services, while we focus on driving people to the market. Your potential customers will be able to find you based on your location, business type & product offering.

We recognise that different types of business have different needs when it comes to their online presence. Not everyone needs a full e-commerce website, while some will reap the rewards and see a significant return on investment if they do sell their products online.

That’s why we’ve created options for all, with price plans to suit your business needs.

About Our Payment Plans

Mini Market Stall

A Mini Market Stall will enable you to showcase your business at a basic level - including a brief outline of your offering, one image, contact details and whether you are trading during Co-Vid restrictions. Potential customers will be able to search and find you based on keywords, business type and location.

Quick & easy self-setup process and ability to upgrade at any time.

Get Started

What your business could look like, as a Market Professional, for just £24.99!

Market Professional

Opting in as a Market Professional will allow you to showcase your business at a premium level. As well as everything outlined above, you will receive a free 30 minute telephone consultation to go over your business requirements so we can support you in the best way possible.
From here, we will tailor your dedicated business page to your needs to give you a one-page website (without the associated cost!) within Market Argyll. Styled with your branding and personality so that market-goers can get to know your business - with a unique call-to-action to encourage your new potential customers to spend.

Get Started

Stand Out Stall

Serious vendors will opt for a Stand Out Stall - a completely bespoke website will become your virtual shop-front to stand alone in the online market with a curated customer experience.

Investment at this level will include all other features free for one year after opt-in, meaning you’ll get the added visibility from Market Argyll to drive traffic to your new site, which will be fully optimised for search engine rankings.

Testimonial

“Market Argyll service was different in every way. Enthusiastic, friendly, and never, at any point, did I feel blinded by 'tech speak' or overwhelmed.

I am delighted with the new site and, indeed, customers have commented on it. It is fresher, clearer, and far more user friendly - while significantly reducing my annual costs.

Looking forward to the virtual marketplace launching to increase our business’ visibility too!”

- Jane Hallett, Eureka! Midge Repellent
