Mash.ie uses a number of different ways to engage its customers including highlighting certain products on its home page and on its social media channels.
Before that, here is the way NOT to get your product online! Please do not email us directly to ask us to feature your product or your store. While we understand you have worked hard on your product and you want as many people to see it, it's important to understand that everyone else has done the same thing. We don't like to have to say "no" to people but this is one request that we cannot do.
Here are the ways you can get your product highlighted on our various channels.
If you create a product and tag Mash.ie's Instagram account in it, we will happily add it to our Instagram Story if we can get to it. While we generally try to share all of these posts, sometimes, we might miss one or two depending on volume and depending on whether we are online or not.
Similarly to Instagram, make sure to tag Mash.ie on your Facebook Page and we're very happy to share your product if we see it.
Every so often our social media team scour the site to find products that might match a particular theme. For example, if you have a great resource about pirates, we might feature that on International Talk like a Pirate Day.
Every month, we tend to pick some themes relevant to the month. Autumn and Halloween resources are likely to find a home in October.
Make Attractive Product Covers
People say not to judge a book by its cover but the Internet is a whole different story. Very attractive product covers are more likely to feature on Mash.ie than ones that are blank or boring. Try to make your covers unique. Try to get your logo somewhere in the product cover.
I'm sure there are other ways to get noticed but these are a good starting place. We just ask that you don't contact us directly unless you are having a problem with doing any of the above!
