Creating Content with Allyson Ryan

What's behind the numbers when it comes to social media and online presence? How do we get there? Earned impressions are derived from media FAMs, pitches and press releases.  Website traffic is generated from paid, owned and earned media.  Social engagements come from compelling content. 

The overarching thread is content. Engaging content is critical to meeting all of these goals. Driving traffic to the website, getting users to like or comment on social or delivering compelling story ideas to journalists.

Take a look at the MCCVB's content calendar to see what we are planning and how you can engage with us in an co-op or as a guest blogger.
