Neighborhood Gazette News Site
The Neighborhood Gazette is a monthly neighborhood newspaper circulated in the West Denver neighborhoods of Wheat Ridge, Applewood, Edgewater and the surrounding areas. They had been trying for years to get a viable web version of their newspaper online in order to broaden their reach, allow readers to share their articles and boost advertiser reach, but never found the solution they required.
Guy of the Neighborhood Gazette reached out and over lunch at the amazing Right Coast Pizza in Wheat Ridge, we hashed out a website concept that could fulfill everything the Gazette needed! Highlights include:
- Individually share-able articles on social media platforms, so readers can share the articles they love with friends and family.
- Connecting roughly 25 ads each month to the various articles and pages on the site, and linking the ads so site visitors can visit advertiser websites quickly and easily.
- Adding a community calendar page for upcoming local events.
- Connecting the local weather via a fun widget.
- Displaying the live Facebook feed for the Gazette Facebook page.
