Hachette Ireland Launches Website

It’s nice to see Hachette launch a proper Irish web presence. As one of the biggest Trade Publishers on the island it seemed strange to me that they didn’t have a proper site (although I know they did in the past).

If I had one problem, it’s my perennial complaint. The news & events page which looks good doesn’t supply an RSS feed and they don’t offer a mailing list sign up. That seems to me a lost opportunity to engage with their readers.

One nice feature is that the author pages can pull in title info on request. They could do with increasing the content on those pages but for now they have a good solid site.

Struggling with a head cold, not pleasant.

  1. Hi Eoin
    Thanks for the feedback, we are looking into adding a mailing list and an RSS feedat some point down the line and will be in touch when we have these up and running.

    Thanks

    1. Smashing stuff Peter!

      I wouldn’t worry too much, there’s few enough publishers anywhere that have rss feeds on their news pages. As for mailing lists ….

      All the best,
      Eoin
