ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Mission, Methods and Value Proposition Statements:
Nebraska Community Websites Project
To create a Sustainable Network that captures and effectively communicates small town culture and Quality of Life. We have most to contribute to a Community that has but a single Postal ZIPcode. More than that, and our services are not as valuable and consequently our essential CRAMES model is incomplete.
Individuals that are recognized as well connected to the community are attracted, recruited and incented to gather and document news and stories that provide weekly fresh relevant content for each website.
16 or more Community Websites representing Cass, South Sarpy and Otoe counties in Nebraska will be built and managed to provide valuable free information sharing utilities for the City, Village or Towns they represent. Such a Community "Information Portal" is valuable only so long as the content is fresh, relevant, accurate and authentic. To insure authenticity no official City/Village information will be placed on the Website unless a City/Village Charter is in force. The success of this effort will create significant and dependable volumes of website visitors attracted and rewarded by the fresh content and interested in local Sponsor Ads.
In order to fund the fees paid to the Community Editors, and to built and manage promotion infrastructure, Clickable Message Banners will be available to Sponsors that wish to deliver a message directly to Community Visitors.
