TribLIVE’s Neighborhood News Network delivers the neighborhood news readers need and want and allows them to share news of their own. TribLIVE provides the great local coverage that readers have come to expect but readers can also share their stories, photos, and videos of noteworthy news and events happening in their communities.
These sites are built for reader engagement. Stories from local communities are published and updated throughout the day and contributors can post their news, too. And, best of all – it’s FREE!
Many businesses post news and updates to their own sites along with sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Isn’t that enough? In short, no.
Here are a few reasons why you should be posting to the Neighborhood News Network.
- Expand your reach.
The Neighborhood News Network covers over 30 neighborhoods across the Pittsburgh region. And, in January 2021, it delivered 312,955 pageviews to 100,810 users. The Neighborhood News Network can help you reach beyond your current audience to others within your community and neighboring communities.
- Share your expertise.
Neighborhood News Network contributor posts should be informative and of general public interest. Self-promotion, promotional offers, merchandising, and campaigning should be reserved for advertising but you can use a post as an opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise with your community. Are you a mechanic? Write a post about winter car care tips. Own a restaurant? Share a recipe or write about safety protocols. Salon owner? Offer suggestions to keep hair and nails healthy between appointments.
- Validate your content.
It is vitally important to get news and information from reliable, credible sources. The Neighborhood News Network is backed by Trib Total Media. So, when you post to a trusted news site like the Neighborhood News Network, you not only give legitimacy to your content but you help others find your content more easily through search engines.
