Local Content Drive & Sweepstakes!

One thing that distinguishes Associated Content’s library is the rich, diverse array of local content, submitted by Sources from across the US (and beyond).

What is local content? Reviews of local restaurants, shops and other businesses. Previews of upcoming events. Guides to the best tourist destinations in the towns you live in and visit. Profiles of local groups and individuals. Anything about anything that’s happening in and around your community.

Local content is also an excellent addition to every Source’s library – it’s highly searchable and easy to create based on your own experiences. Some of our most successful contributors are those who have learned to effectively “localize content” – just ask Pam Gaulin.

Now, we’re providing our community with a special incentive to create more local content. Through the end of June, every piece of content published on one of our Local (aka “Cities & Neighborhoods”) templates will count as an entry in our Local Content Sweeps. On July 14, five random winners will be chosen and each will receive a Sony Cybershot Digital Camera! Read the official rules here.

So, what are you waiting for? Log onto AC, and start telling us what’s happening in your community!
