Local information? We have Boulder covered.

Where do you get your local information? There are so many different places you can look. When City of Boulder residents were asked which sources they turned to most often for information about the city, The Daily Camera tied with the City of Boulder web site as their preferred destination for information (63% of respondents).
That’s more than twice the number who reported city social media as their first choice – and it says a lot about the power of print. When it comes to local information, the Camera is your trusted source.
The Daily Camera, Colorado Hometown Weekly and the rest of our family of products deliver a demographically diverse, devoted following that is growing across multiple platforms 24/7. No one delivers a larger audience and better results. No one works harder to earn your business.

Thanks to our local nonprofits, life is better here

The Camera is a proud partner with more than 100 local nonprofit organizations, providing them with over $2 million of support each year. Each of these organizations help make our community a better place, and we love to recognize their successes!
I recently heard from two groups that we have been honored to sponsor recently. I hope you’ll take a moment to look into the great work they are doing in our communities.
The Parent Engagement Network (PEN) empowers  parents to promote the wellbeing of youth and families. Paul Nelson, program director, says,  “We greatly appreciate the Daily Camera sponsorship. You are the best!”
The Boulder Economic Council (BEC), the economic development arm of the Boulder Chamber, promotes Boulder’s economic prosperity.
The BEC’s Clif Harald wrote to say, “We can’t thank you enough for helping make this year’s Economic Summit such a success.  Many people told us – and are still telling us – that it was the best Summit ever.”

Ending Alzheimer’s disease will take a lot of team work

It’s amazing what team work can accomplish. And when you’re trying to end Alzheimer’s disease, it takes a whole lot of team work.
Friends, co-workers and families are forming  teams right now to participate in the first Boulder Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, August 1 on the University of Colorado Boulder campus. It’s for an important cause, and we could really use your support, too.
Did you know that Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States? It’s the only cause of death among the top 10 without a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression. It has touched families everywhere, including my own, so this event is very near and dear to my heart.
I am serving on the Boulder Walk Committee and the Camera is sponsoring this event. I would love for you to join me in the fight to end Alzheimer’s. Here’s how you can get involved:
• Start or join a team: by registering at ColoradoAlzWalk.org.
• Become a sponsor: Contact me at stravolemosj@dailycamera.com to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association and have a profound impact on the movement to end Alzheimer’s!
• Volunteer: We’re looking for volunteers to assist us on the day of the Walk to make this a great event for everyone.
Come join us. Together we can eradicate this disease!

To commemorate this milestone, the Daily Camera is publishing a special 75th Anniversary keepsake edition on Monday, June 1.

Mobile-friendly landing page is a must in latest algorithm

I’ve often talked about the importance of mobile and mobile-friendly landing pages for your campaigns that reach mobile users. Google made it official last month (April 21). Search campaigns are now ranked in-part based on their mobile-friendly landing page or website. If mobile visitors to your website aren’t going to a responsive landing page, it’s time to get caught up to mobile. Experts say that Google’s new algorithm will affect more web sites than the previous two updates.
We can help. We’ll create a mobile-friendly landing page for your website that passes the new algorithm test. You’ll stay visible in the SERPs and your mobile customers will keep coming back to your site.
An estimated 50 percent of Google search traffic comes to you from a mobile device, and that audience share will only grow. Really, you don’t want to get lost on Page 3 of the search results, do you?
Call our local digital experts at 303.473.1400 to learn more about creating your mobile landing page. And if you need a responsive web site to go with it, we’ll be your one-stop shop.
