A modern local media company, connecting communities.
Great Things Can Happen
Neighbour Media aims to provide value to local residents, businesses and organizations through our monthly paper, Facebook and Instagram pages and newsletter.
How do we provide value to our Neighbours? We produce 100+ pieces of content every single month - highlighting positive moments and impactful local news stories, showcasing local events and so much more!
To achieve that volume content, including pictures, videos and articles, we can thank our creative team, local Neighbour Media partners and the community members for contributing content to us every single month.
People still love paper - and so do we! There is something about a printed publication that is just irreplaceable in terms of media platforms. We use more of our senses to experience it.
The feeling of the paper in your hands, the sound of the flipping of the pages, the smell of the ink - it is an immersive experience that has been enjoyed by the masses for centuries. Plus… how much fun is it to see yourself or someone you know in your local paper?! Definitely scrapbook worthy.
Every month we distribute 10,000 copies of publication throughout each of our local communities. These editions are filled with relative community content, charity features, business spotlights and upcoming events.
Unlike traditional papers that get delivered to your doorstep (which let’s be honest, is just a quick stop before the recycling bin) our publication is intention based. This means that when we distribute the papers to our community partners each month, residents choose to pick it up!
They know that in those pages they will find content that matters to them; local neighbours/people they know, upcoming events, volunteer and local organization highlights, and content from local businesses (maybe even some of their favourite spots).
It’s 2022 and we all know that social media is BIG. But… just how big?
Since its inception in 1996, social media has managed to infiltrate half of the 7.7 billion people in the world.
Social network platforms almost tripled their total user base in the last decade, from 970 million in 2010 to a number passing 4.48 billion users in July 2021.
Globally, the average time a person spends on social media a day is 2 hours and 24 minutes.
40% of all internet users worldwide use social media for work purposes.
The point is, people spend time on these platforms throughout their everyday life and there is an incredible amount of opportunity that comes with that!
Neighbour Media focuses on producing content that adds value to the residents of our communities. Positive moments, feel good stories, business spotlights, local news and events with engaging content like polls, Q & A’s and giveaways.
