If you are reading this you are likely already a fan of Hudson Patch. And you probably also know that our dear Patch site is in danger being discontinued by their parent company. So to plea "Save the Patch!" equates to a minister preaching to the choir.
However, there are a number ways you can help.
One, if you own a business, buy an ad. Ad revenue is the primary means of income for Patch.
Two, encourage people who may not know about Patch to read it. There are excellent daily updates about news and events that have an impact on our lives at a local level. Higher readership means more attractiveness to potential advertisers.
Three, subscribe to the Patch's daily e-newsletter. Readers will receive a concise summary of what's new in our news and area events. Details are just one click away.
And finally of course, 'like' Hudson Patch on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. More likes and followers mean more eyes receiving updates and more clicking through to the site and higher readership and thus more appeal to potential advertisers and increased revenue to help keep the Patch around for us all.
We need to keep Hudson Patch around — may The Patch be with us.
