A Summer of Change for DowntownCampbell.com

Posted on June 6th, 2015 by sheldon

As you might have noticed, the photos in the masthead for DowntownCampbell.com have finally changed after being the same for far too long. This is just the start of some welcome updates that you'll be seeing to this website throughout the course of this summer and into the fall.

The screenshot that we've attached to this post is what the DowntownCampbell.com website looked like in 2004. That was the first generation of downtowncampbell.com in its current format as a collaborative platform with news and information from many different businesses and community interests.

Much has changed in Downtown Campbell since those days. It's hard to believe, but in 2004, Downtown Campbell was still a place where you went if you were trying to score a find on an antique or you wanted to pick up rodeo wear. For 2004 and for many years after that, the Downtown Campbell website was rather advanced. It's worked well, but it's time to catch up with the times and again be the kind of site that other districts want to copy.

A lot of changes have already been made under the hood over the past six months and soon you'll start to see more noticeable new additions that will help us create a more unified experience of Downtown Campbell between the website and its various social media properties. You might not be able to tell from just looking at the website, but we have active Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts for those who prefer to get their information one way or another.

This will take time though. Despite appearances, Downtown Campbell doesn't have a big operating budget. We're the "Little District that Could." We're run by volunteers and people doing things in their spare time. Everyone punches above their weight to make all of this happen. That's ok with us though. This is one of the reasons why we are what we are.

If you have any suggestions for improvements that you'd like us to take into account, please email us at [email protected].
