Newsie is a growing network of hyperlocal news sites that serve communities across the UK, Ireland and US. Newsie is revolutionising how residents and businesses connect with their local area. Each Newsie site is licensed and run by a local editor as a business.
The Newsie platform allows you to curate and share the latest headlines (via RSS feeds) from the best local news sources that matter to your community – local newspapers, the council, local bloggers, schools, community groups, charities, amateur sports teams etc. As soon as these publishers post a new story it pulls through into your site, creating the ultimate dynamic news hub for your community.
You can blog yourself through the platform, adding your own unique, original content in and supplement this with social media activity.
This enables you to quickly build a large, highly-engaged, hyperlocal audience. You generate revenue by tying in local businesses with this local following.
