We started I Love Loveland as a Facebook page in 2012 in response to rapidly growing use of social media. We recognized both a need and opportunity to utilize this new tool to keep Lovelanders informed, engaged and involved in our community. We curate and create content about the community including news, profiles, events, history, stories, photos, videos and much more. Our team is comprised of community volunteers with no outside agenda, just a focus on promoting positive community engagement. This new website and mobile app will enable us to expand our tools for the community including a resource directory, business directory, events calendar, deals, articles and more. Below is a list of all the tools we are currently working on for the community. If you like our sites, please consider supporting our business members and sponsors who have made this possible.
- Facebook Page - Our first and largest tool is our I Love Loveland Facebook Page with over 21,000+ followers and the highest engagement of any Loveland social media site. We curate and create content including news, profiles, events, history, stories, photos, videos and much more.
Topic-Specific Groups - Our groups allow followers to see more posts about specific topics and the ability to participate more actively. Groups let community members post directly and is therefore more interactive.
Our New Instagram Page - We recently launched our brand new Instagram page and have grown to over 1200+ followers in just 6 weeks.
Website & Mobile App - We have been slowly progressing on getting our new website and mobile app launched. We invested in a great platform that includes a business directory, events calendar, deals, articles and more. It will be free for organizations to add their directory listing, events, deals and articles. There will be options for paid premium listings to help offset the cost of the site, but there will always be free options so we can have all the information and resources we can for the community.
Our Sample Magazine and Media Kit - Two years ago we worked on launching a full-color, glossy, seasonal print magazine for the community. The same month we planned our launch, we discovered two other local organizations were launching new Loveland print magazines. As a result, we decided not to launch ours for the time being. This may be in our future, but for now it’s on hold.
Community Blog - We can’t wait to provide a brand new way to share way more great stuff with the Loveland community. We are setting up a blog that allows us to have articles on all different types of community topics, categorized by subject to make it easy for community members to find what they are interested in.
Youth Writers - We wanted to make a special effort to get our youth involved in our organization and give them a voice in the community as well as connect them with great opportunities.
Community Partnerships - Our ultimate goal in using online media to reach Lovelanders, is to encourage them in ways that make a positive difference offline! That is why it’s important to us that our team likes to participate IRL (in real life) events in the community.
Services and tools for Loveland businesses - We love all of our Loveland businesses small and big, and aim to provide resources to help promote them. We place a special emphasis on small, locally-owned businesses who don’t always have the resources that large companies do. Check back soon as we’ll have a long list of ways Loveland businesses can use our tools to promote themselves!
Podcast & Video - Coming soon!
- Resource Directory - In addition to our business directory, we are also setting up a resource directory which will function similar to the business directory, but with other community resources listed and categorized as well.
If you enjoy I Love Loveland, we invite you to support our sponsors!
