Getting Better Every Day – Share Your Comments

By: Contributor Last Updated: January 26, 2010

This week, we've added the ability for our members to begin Commenting on articles, blog posts, and videos! Now, once you log in to the site, you are given the ability to share your ideas, tell us what you liked, or give other input toward a piece of content on our site! If you know anything about us, you know that we focus only on the positive side of things happening in town, so we do require our users to log in, and comments will be approved by a member of the ValpoLife staff before they become live. Just like many of our moms taught us – if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

So head on over to the site, register to be a member if you are not already, and begin sharing your ideas with the community!

At the end of the year, we asked you all to help us what could make your experience better by taking a survey and letting us know your thoughts and opinions and we had an incredible response that like what we are doing and have ideas for how we can do even better. We got great feedback about the layout of the site, encouraging more interactivity, and additional low cost ways to market your group or company on the site.

We also got a lot of feedback from folks that did not know that we offer 90 different local Coupons on the site that are easy to select, print, and save with just a couple clicks of the mouse. We heard from many people that did not know they can select from 30,000 Photos taken at darn near every event that has happened in town, and purchase products ranging from wallet size prints to posters, and mouse pads to coffee mugs.

You have no doubt already seen quite a few improvements to the site, and you’ll see many more in the future as we implement the best suggestions to continue making the site the one place where Valpo calls home on the web.

We also adopted a new banner size and position, to allow companies a very low cost option of starting a marketing campaign on ValpoLife so we can show them the kind of impact we can make, that our current advertisers would be happy to tell you about. That means that you can start a program for as little as $100 and that is for a month of advertising, not just a tiny little ad that runs for one day, one time!
