July 27 2010 Editor Assistance Newsletter
The Green Team is up and running! There's a link on your admin menu to get to the Green Team page. If you click on it you can read our mission statement and a full article on what we're all about. You can click there to join us as well! We would love to have your input on brainstorming ideas. We are a casual group, out to improve our world!
For example, when you're writing product reviews, think about any green related issues you could mention. Is the packaging recyclable? Is the item itself recyclable? Think about mentioning any green related aspects of the purchase, package, usage, or "when you're done with it" stages!
Our Green Team will be striving to help brainstorm ideas for each site. We'll post them in the forums so we enthuse your visitors as well. Stay tuned in the forums for when your site will be brainstorm central!
BellaOnline's great strength is in our community. In that sense, our four auto channel sites have been a little neglected. While other channels have a large group of editors to share ideas, promote each other, and snowball traffic, the auto channel only has four people in it. We have tried over the years to create more "neighbors" for them - to get a boats site going, a sport bikes site, etc. - but it never quite worked. Right now we only have 3 auto channel editors so it's even more challenging.
I've talked with the auto channel editors and we've all agreed to move these sites into more lively channels, so their sites get the full community and networking experience and traffic. This will be great for their sites, great for our visitors, and help the sites thrive!
Cars, motorcycles, and "auto polishing and detailing" will move into the Home channel. They will have their own sub-section in there, so they'll stay together in a little group. They will have a much wider audience of people finding and using their information.
RV will be moving into Travel & Leisure. Erin and I talked about the options and agree that most people looking for RV information are also looking for travel location and tips.
This update will help our visitors find the sites more easily, help the sites benefit from their channel neighbors, and help the editors have more channel-mates!
Let me know if you have any questions or comments on this update! Please swing by the forums and welcome your fellow editors as they settle into their new neighborhoods!
