Easy 3 minute, 10 question Survey Results

Posted by Jason Roe on Jul 8, 2014 5:03:04 PM

Eamonn Grant - Survey Results  - Growth Hackers Dublin #3

Recorded 5th June 2014. Growth Hackers Dublin in the Irish Times, Tara Street, Dublin.

The Next event Growth Hackers Dublin Meetup July 10th. [ http://t9.ie/ghack4vd ]

One of the things we did do is we sent out a survey to our customers. We did this for multiple businesses that we own. We did this for Flowers Made Easy, we did it for Wholesale, and we did it for several other things. What was interesting was what we didn't realize before that. And just to give you an idea from the Flowers Made Easy side, the Flowers Made Easy number was still above that number you want, about 60%. If you hit 60%, you're a legend. If you hit 40%, you should keep going, fix it, tweak it, and get it going up.

Days after my blog post "Pay walls going up for Irish traditional media", the very people who inspired  confidence in pay walls  for online regional new publishers are now taking them right back down again. I hate to tell you I told you so, but ..

Pay walls going up for Irish traditional media

Posted by Jason Roe on Mar 26, 2010 8:36:05 AM

This week a number of Irish regional news websites have started charging for content. Chances are that you haven't already spotted this. I say that this because if you are anything like me, you probably consume media a lot differently than the masses.

Before I start, I want you to know that I was previously in gainful employment with the Irish Independent and worked in the team and on the platform behind these regional web sites. Although its been over a year since I worked there, I have some understand of why they might have decided to charge for content. Before I start to explain the rationale, I want you to know that I think that this move will prove in time to be a huge mistake. Anyone who is in advertising might tell you that this move will more than likely obliterate most of the traffic and advertising revenue on these on-line publications.

Free customised blogs for Irish Hotels!

Posted by Jason Roe on Feb 20, 2009 7:05:29 PM

Last week, I went to a really interesting session about hotels and bogging set up by Ciara Feely. Keith Bohanna was speaking to a group of hoteliers about promoting themselves via blogs / twitter.

I found it quite interesting that the first barrier for most of the hoteliers was the lack expertise to set up a branded hotel blog. With that in mind, I decided to come up with this offer.

For a limited time, I am offering a number of Irish hoteliers the chance to get a blog installed / customised* free of charge. To top that off.. If you are a small hotel / b&b , I will also give you a free one-to-one crash course on twitter.

If you are in the hotel space and looking for a blog I would love to hear from you. If you know anyone in the tourism space who might be interested please pass this ton to them.


Property pron an interesting trend!

Posted by Jason Roe on Nov 21, 2008 5:33:34 AM

I spotted this trend on google a few weeks back. It seems like Irish people have something new on their mind (an interesting mindset). The graphs look like a mirror image of each other. Maybe daft.ie should move into the adult entertainment business... Updated.. made this Safe for Work :)
