YOLO COUNTY NEWS
99 CENTS

Check out new features on YCVB website

A new blog, email newsletter and visitor guide offers are the latest enhancements to the Yolo County Visitors Bureau website, www.yolocvb.org.

For starters, the visitors bureau is now offering a new leisure traveler newsletter, “The Yolo Traveler,” to help inform visitors about events, venues and special offers throughout Yolo County. It is an email newsletter that people can subscribe to from a simple form on the website home page.

“We will spotlight selected coming events, offer tips on dining and entertainment, and present available discounts at hotels and other venues,” says Alan Humason, executive director of the YCVB. “We’ll keep it tight, with five or six items per edition, with links to our website for visitors to get more complete information.”

The newsletter will go out once a month to start, but could be published twice a month if response warrants. The YCVB staff will produce all the content in-house.

Also new on the home page is the Yolo! blog.

“This new feature is meant to be a slightly longer read with more first-hand experience articles,” said Tiffany Dozier, public relations and communications manager for the visitors bureau. “The blog and the newsletter should complement each other; together they will show off Yolo County as a great place to visit for lots of different reasons.”

The plan calls for the Yolo! blog to get new features a least twice a week.

“It’s an ambitious schedule, but we have so many great stories to tell in Yolo County, we’re just excited to get them told,” Dozier said.

There is also a new offer to receive the YCVB’s visitor guides. There are five: for Yolo County, Davis, Winters, Woodland and “Wines of Yolo County.” Again, there is a simple form people can access from the home page.

“We have a no spam, no share guarantee,” Dozier said. “We promise not to share anyone’s data with anyone else anywhere, ever.”

These additions come on the heels of the recently introduced Weddings section, which provides information about numerous venues for wedding and receptions around Yolo County.

The YCVB’s Visitor Center is at 132 E Street, Suite 200, in downtown Davis. For more information, call 530-297-1900 or visit www.yolocvb.org.
