If there’s one thing the Echo newsroom loves more than a hot tip about a great story it’s, well… you. Yes, you out there, holding this paper or scrolling through this editorial on our website.
It may sound cheesy, but as a community newspaper, our readers make us. Knowing the story that comes about because of that aforementioned hot news tip is getting passed around local coffee shops or talked about between periods at the next Rockies game makes chasing down the news all the more enjoyable.
Which is why, for the next several weeks, we’re asking you to guide the direction of our paper.
Black Press is running an online survey for all of its B.C. papers, and the Echo‘s is live now. Head to www.surveymonkey.com/s/6SBJRR7, or visit invermerevalleyecho.com and punch the “click to win” button halfway down the screen on the right side and you’ll be taken to a short list of questions about what you get out of each issue of our paper.
Want more recipes in these pages? Come here for the weekly news about the Rockies and the Bighorns? Love the classifieds section? There’s a place to give us your views on all of those.
It only takes a few minutes of your time, and in return you’ll be entered in a draw to win a big, locally sourced prize.
In return, we get a look at what our readers think of our work, and local advertisers get a glimpse of who’s reading it.
A community newspaper, like the Echo, is meant to be a reflection of the place it serves.
When you’ve finished your weekly paper, we hope you feel like you know the towns you live in, and the people you live near, a little better each time — or had a chance to see them in a new and different light.
What matters to us is what you get out of reading these pages, in print or online, and we’re excited to have a new way for you to tell us.
The survey is up for six weeks in total. We hope you drop by.
