Observer Newspaper Feeback


Charlotte Observer NewspaperThe Charlotte Observer newspaper is looking to enhance it’s business section in an effort to add greater value to the paper’s many readers.  As such I am submitting my thoughts on content opportunities and improvements.

I would like to get your thoughts on ways to improve the Observer’s business section.  This could include but is not limited to:

  1. New industry trends
  2. Different spin on current topics
  3. Information business owners and managers need but currently do not get
  4. New sub sections

Even if you do not live in Charlotte, you can browse the Observer Online and probably include some interesting suggestions.  We often complain about the quality of media we consume.  This is an opportunity to participate in an improvement.

 Please post your suggestions as comments below.

    Of course my input is going to have a multimedia slant. I would like to see the Observer and other local newspapers do the following:

    1. Short online videos covering various business news topics. Print stories are great and are not going anywhere but the web offers more options for publishers and these options should be explored.

    2. More local focus on national business issues and trends. For example, if YouTube and blogs are hot technologies worldwide, who are some of the local players making use of these technologies?

    3. Short educational videos to help businesses grow. These videos could cover topics including marketing, tax, information security, etc.

    4. Reviews of new media technologies and personalities. New technologies emerge every day and business owners are deluged in information and need help keeping up with the latest trends.

    5. Integrate content from business and citizen content creators (bloggers, production compaines, the chamber, SBA, etc.). The good ones have very compelling content that stays fresh.

    6. Stop burying multimedia content. Don’t section multimedia content off in some dark corner of the website. Integrate it into stories and give it high visibility within section front pages.
