IMMOKALEE – For more than 50 years, the Immokalee Bulletin has served the local community with news and advertising to keep readers up to date on local issues and help them make decisions about issues of community concern. In that time, the Bulletin (formerly known as the Southwest Floridian News) has gone through a number of changes. On April 22, the newspaper will make another change, switching exclusively to an online digital format known as an electronic or “e-edition.”
The online edition, combined with the newspaper’s website, social media and newsletter make it easier than ever to stay current with Immokalee community news.
The e-edition is free and easy to access. Just go online on any computer, tablet or cell phone to immokaleebulletin.com and click on the photo of the current newspaper. The e-edition looks like a traditional print newspaper, but it provides options not available in print. Just click on any story for a larger format that is easy to read. The e-edition also has the option for automatic translations into 11 different languages, making the news accessible to more readers. You can read the Immokalee Bulletin in Spanish, French, German and even Russian.
The advertisements in the e-edition are also easy to access. Just click on the ad and you can enlarge it to read even the fine print.
The e-edition of the Immokalee Bulletin is available on your cell phone, tablet or computer any time and anywhere you want to read it. You’ll never miss an issue because back editions of the entire newspaper are available on the website for 12 weeks, and individual news articles are available in the online print archive dating back to 2007.
While the way you read the paper may change, what will not change is the newspaper’s dedication to serving the Immokalee community and our pledge to provide an unbiased forum for community debate. Switching to the online format will allow even more room for community news and discussions.
We continue to welcome submissions from the community. Email your news, photos, letters to the editor and community events to email@example.com.
The free e-edition will be available to read every Thursday at immokaleebulletin-fl.newsmemory.com. The website, Immokaleebulletin.com, will be updated throughout the week with news for and about the community.
On the Immokalee Bulletin website you can also sign up for a free newsletter, with links to stories on the website to bring even more local news to your email box every week. To sign up for the newsletter, just go to immokaleebulletin.com and click on “ENEWSLETTER” at the top of the page and enter your email address.
You can also follow the Immokalee Bulletin on Facebook, and encourage the local businesses in the area to advertise their specials and added services during this Coronavirus pandemic so you can follow them online in the Immokalee Bulletin.
The world-wide health crisis has served as a reminder of the importance of timely news updates. With online readership higher than ever before, we will make sure the advertising opportunities for area businesses match reader trends.
