In case you were in any doubt about the Tuesday Push

conor 18th of July 2008 by conor

Joe Drumgoole let us know that the outcome of the Tuesday Push on PutPlace far exceeded expectation:

For us it increased our number of visitors on average four fold for the week in which we were pushed. This converted to double the previous weeks registrations. We weren’t running any other campaigns so I attribute that all to the Tuesday push….Basically one of the most cost effective marketing exercises we have done this year.

And your reason for not signing up for the push is?

The Tuesday Push – Showing real community spirit

conor 1st of July 2008 by conor

Damien Mulley gets community like very few other people in the industry. His ideas are always worth listening to and, more importantly, worth acting on. He has just kicked off a real corker called The Tuesday Push. Every second Tuesday, a startup is selected from those who put themselves forward and lots of us blog about them on the same day.

It’s one of those simple but potentially incredibly powerful ways of getting us all noticed. There is nothing nefarious about it, no PPP in the background or Google gaming. Just write in an honest way about a new start-up every two weeks. The posts will be even more useful to everyone if they contain constructive criticism and ideas rather than puff-pieces.

We would encourage those who read but don’t write to Digg/Stumble/Delicious the posts they really like. And obviously if you are a startup, register your interest in being covered.

The first start-up to be covered is the brilliant PutPlace. I’ll be doing my review of it later over on Argolon. Damien has already done his. We’ll also do aggregated posts here on Web2Ireland with links to all the coverage.

If you don’t mind me pimping LouderVoice too much, you can also make use of us to help spread the word. Just add the tag “review” and the tag “rating=N” (where N is from 1-5) to your posts. If you then register your blog’s RSS feed as a “FlagTag” feed on LouderVoice, we’ll pick those posts up and they’ll get indexed very quickly as reviews on Google. If you don’t have/want a blog, just write the review directly on LV and we’ll link it to all the others.

This initiative will only work if the community gets behind it. So instead of thinking “what a good idea”, go review PutPlace, now!
