Several months ago the Sentinel launched www.ramonavoices.com, a social networking and community forum platform that promotes conversation between residents and businesses. To date over 161 residents and over 100 businesses have joined. If you, your business, your social club, religious organization or nonprofit have not become a part of the conversation, I invite you to do so today. There is no charge to become a member. Residents and businesses can network, exchange ideas, share information and find great deals and special offers from local businesses.
Individuals, groups and businesses can communicate with friends, neighbors, colleagues and customers or clients on Ramona Voices through Buzz Boards, Event Listings and Comments. The Buzz Board is a local bulletin board to post announcements in real-time on the front page of Ramona Voices. It’s like a local public address system for Ramona.
There is also a private or personal real-time textual interactive board for making personal connections. It can be used to build connection lists of neighbors, classrooms, sports teams and more.
For organizations and businesses, it’s an affordable way to create a personalized connection with local residents and build organizational or brand loyalty.
Any member can create a group and invite others to join. Groups are a great place to keep members informed about what’s happening, share ideas and information that relate to the members. Individuals, organizations and businesses can post events to let friends and neighbors know what’s happening, where and when.
And coming soon, “Real Deals,” super discounted offers available for a limited time from local merchants. Become a more interactive part of the Ramona community and join the conversation on Ramona Voices.
