Maidin Mhaith, there are a few things i want to address on your question.
First and foremost you have to have a clear plan natively speaking, take your local market first and then expand. It is always easier to grow outward than it is to reach out try to pull everything in.
So with that in mind, Google is great but it should be part of the plan, not the only plan. Don't miss the BING! traffic and more importantly do not miss the AMAZON traffic.
It is my opinion and something that has worked for ALL my marketing clients, to have the formula of 80% organic and 20% PPC (Pay per click) and the PPC doesn't have to be all Google.
Currently right now your biggest issue with the website is there are no solid keywords or structure to the canonization of the website, so that has to be fixed first.
Secondly, you have promote - That means Social Media Market Places, Link Backs and PR....Public Relations would put you in a "cornering" marketplace that would open not only direct sales, but a wholesale market to you that could blow your family owned business out of the cold winter waters of Galloway :).
Your product is a "green" and "socially conscience" product and that alone is a great market place to be in right now. So don't miss the boat on partnering with businesses in other countries that could possibly push your marketplace through environmentally friendly advertising.
But it all comes down to 2 things, Time and Budget. I am a firm believer invest in the time first, fix everything and then budget to expand in 90/120 days and then every 6 months.
I hope that answers your questions and if you need any assistance, I would love to talk to you more, I love working with my Irish families!
Wow, you already have a lot of answers. My .02¢ is to sell it on e-bay and direct those customers to your site for repeat business and to up your SEO score.
A lot of great comments in this thread Carmel - so it may be confusing.
I think it's best to start with your Unique Selling Proposition (USP) and develop content around that. Then put up several blogs devoted to the problems that you solve. Some suggestions are in the thread:
Varmint protection - a great idea.
Security of contents, even if knocked over.
Prevention of extra littering on collection days.
Dealing with the problems of over-filled bins - targetting councils that tolerate this approach and suggesting they outlaw it entirely - your device would certainly address that.
I haven't analysed the USP or tested what people are searching for, but a combination of these ideas would produce some great bogs and you can make short videos - 30-90 seconds, showing different facets of addressing the problem with your product.
As you do this, a bit of judicious FB, TW and Pin activity will produce traffic to the blogs and the blogs will all point to your website.
This should develop into a coordinated set of campaigns supported by advertising as appropriate and drive significant traffic accordingly.
As already suggested, great stories are essential, so find some Customers who can provide social proof of great results from using your product - cleaner neighbourhoods, dog-proof incidents, stormy days (you are in Galway, so you'll know about those).
In Australia, the Ibises are a major problem - this would be an excellent solution - but you;d nee dot address the over-filling issue as well. You could adapt the device to address park bins as well - ones with some sort of lid on them, but they can have rubbish put in through an opening.
