So, this time around the Tuesday Push is….The Tuesday Push. The idea started in July last year as a way of drawing attention to new products & services being developed by the Irish Tech community; it’s:
…a way for the small but growing tech community in Ireland to make some noise about ourselves by picking a good example of an Irish Tech Company and highlighting their product(s) every second Tuesday. This co-ordinated way of highlighting our abilities will hopefully get tech companies heard a bit more and also foster more community spirit as we help each other out by getting everyone greater attention.
Since it started, 10 companies have been promoted on blogs around the country (I’ve covered 9 of the 10). Those getting a push need to be offering a unique product or service, and should be taking part in the push themselves (…the idea is for a co-op mentality, rather than just taking advantage of some cheap marketing). For companies starting out offering something new, getting a bump in coverage, having people use and review their offerings, and getting lots of links gives a great way of promoting & improving their services.
So, if you’re an Irish Tech company that’s offering something new and have a blog, contributing to the promotional effort and putting your name forward for a Push of your own is worthwhile (just take a look at the feedback of some of those that have had a push). There’s also a new Tuesday Push site.
