Over the past six months, the website livemsp.org has had more than 26,000 visits from people looking for information about Minneapolis and Saint Paul neighborhoods, housing purchase and renovation programs, and city living. Visitors are digging into the content, viewing nearly 120,000 pages, with almost a third returning for additional visits.
Live MSP program director Mary Kay Bailey notes, “As Live MSP continues to evolve, we want to make sure that the website is on target for consumers. We are looking for user feedback and suggestions to continually improve the content, organize the site, and make it the go-to resource for people interested in MSP city life.”
Bailey is looking for ideas from neighborhood organizations for how to improve the website and other Live MSP outreach efforts. “It’s the individual neighborhoods that make up our cities, they are a selling point, and I want to make sure that Live MSP is helping them best meet their own promotional and marketing goals. I actively post information about neighborhood programs and businesses on the Live MSP Facebook page and Twitter Feed to get more people exposed to them.” Bailey encourages neighborhoods to send any announcements to her so that she can help spread the word.
