GolfNewsRI Surpasses 8,400 Page Views in 1st Month
GolfNewsRI, a new digital media company dedicated to covering local golf, has come to the conclusion of its first month of being LIVE.
The site, co-founded by Rich Cappalli and Joe Calabro, launched on April 13 and has done approximately 8,400 page views through its first month.
“Through our first month, we are off to a good start, especially considering the state of the country and the world. We hope to keep cranking out good content and keep building one day at a time,” said Calabro.
Along with the site page views, GolfNewsRI has reached more than 21,600 people on Facebook through sponsoring content and posts.
Within the month, GolfNewsRI’s story on the CVS Health Charity Classic was retweeted by LPGA and PGA pros Morgan Pressel and Billy Andrade.
Along with reporting big stories like the CVS Classic, and golf restriction updates, GolfNewsRI has also brought local golf course news to the forefront.
Stories such as a courses switching from raised cups to foam inserts and other courses aerating their greens proved to be some of the most important stories to RI golfers.
“It is funny, some of those stories are no more than a few sentences, but those are the stories that we have seen do good numbers. We will continue to do our best to bring Rhode Island golfers the latest updates on the courses they play and care about,” added Calabro.
Most recently, the company endorsed the locally-made Cup Caddie, to help return the game to some normalcy during the time of the coronavirus.
GolfNewsRI has had contributions from some of the top pros in the state, including Kirkbrae’s Mike Bradshaw, Kings Crossing’s Peter Walsh and Rick Holcomb.
The company seeks to add local golf pros to its roster of contributors in the coming days, weeks and months.
Calabro adds, “As we get set for month number two, we just want to thank everyone for their support and enthusiasm toward the website and the content. We are looking forward to what comes next. Thank you all.”
