Galway Bay FM
A Growing Audience
We worked with Galway Bay FM to achieve the goals of their digital strategy. This is a busy website which throws up many interesting challenges. The main issue with a site of this nature is keeping load times fast. The Galway Bay FM site has tonnes of content including podcasts and video. We have grown traffic to over 1 million page views a month and load time has been a critical factor in reaching this milestone.
World Leading Technology
To keep GBFM quick whilst also catering for hundreds of thousands of server requests daily, we used the best technologies available, namely, WP Engine and Amazon S3.
These services enable us to store and call in different content from different locations and display it at lightning speed when called. They also add additional layers of security to the site.
“We engaged Ourside to help us to build our brand online.
