SmalltownEyes.comSmalltownEyes is a new way for people to know about the things that are happening in the towns they live in. It empowers local citizens to read and write about their small towns.


We could say the site acts as a portal for small communities, which are categorized by ZIP codes, and the kind of towns included are (to quote the Smalltown Eyes’ team) “towns where everybody knows everybody”.

Each and every ZIP-based community portal includes the content that people are bound to consume: news, editorials, business reviews, videos, polls, classifieds and local links. Local citizens have the chance to contribute content, comments and insight in various sections throughout the site.

An obvious advantage of Smalltown Eyes is that local businesses can geo-target their marketing campaigns to the people and ZIP codes that have relevance only.

When all is said and done, this new initiative aims to let people share the “talk of the town” at local level. In a certain way, what the site makes possible is a sort of ultra-local incarnation of citizen journalism. People will be capable of reading about these local issues that seldom make the news print. It is something good for a change, and you can learn more about it at the address which is displayed below. In Their Own Words

“What’s happening in your town?”

Why It Might Be A Killer

The site makes it possible for people within small towns to learn more about the places they live in, and also to give their own opinions. That will be appealing enough for many to take to the site.
