Things you’d need to create a hyperlocal news website
Listicles for unseen places in the area
A List of the most popular places, perhaps those that are abandoned or even those of historic significance, get noticed easily.
The essence of hyperlocal stories is held high with the right listicles. Be it “Top food places” or the oldest residents, the right listicles provide the right change of layout while also allowing quick access to information.
User Generated Content
Giving the locals a chance to document their stories is a great way of reporting. This provides a fresh perspective and usually one that’s backed with more focus on details.
Readers can give feedback, add to a story, or even just modify any bits through an easy interface. A good example of this could be the quint, wherein members and users have access to submitting their news stories directly from the app.
