On May 20, 2008 the City of Waterfalls website was born, and since then our baby has grown up fast.
She has been viewed by people around the world, in fact I remember when we recorded our 1 millionth page view, that person came from Australia, a true testament to how far and wide the initiative has spread.
We are now over the 2 million page view mark, and last month we broke an all time record with 23,469 visitors in one month.
Our social media outlets are as vast as well, with 3 facebook accounts totaling over 20,000 members, a twitter account with over 5,000 followers, a You Tube channel with almost 200,000 views, along with Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr, Tumblr, and other social media outlets.
The website is in a language that was great at one time, but does not serve the needs that we need in today’s world, so its time to update it and bring it into the world of word press.
The website itself has not basically been touched in years, and its time that we start updating each and every page and add ALL of our social media outlets to it so everyone can contribute and see what others are doing as well.
Now this is were I need your help…
With a consistent average of over 80% of our internet traffic coming from outside of Hamilton, it is easy to see that we have by default become a portal for our City.
What this means, is that these people that view our website and come to Hamilton ALSO will want to do other things, have dinner, and do some shopping.
The possibilities are endless with what we can do with the new website, and this is were I need your help.
We need people that can step up and help build the new website, if you know word press, we will build on the Genesis platform, and could use some people to help here.
Any good copy writers out there?? Or folks that just know good old proper use of our English language?? Each and every page needs to be gone over, and edited with new content, etc…
Who knows how to run one of our social media outlets?
Our You Tube account needs a person that can pour through all our old videos, and get them up to snuff with Tags, descriptions, even put some to music!
Do you know Pinterest?, Twitter? Facebook?…we need folks that can run and master these outlets
Who has some good pictures that they can donate?
Lets start dreaming about what we can do with the new website everyone, more to follow, but if you can volunteer that’s great let me know, your City thanks you!
