Hanford Mills Continues “Explore More” Regional Promotions Program in 2024

[East Meredith, NY] Hanford Mills Museum is continuing its ‘Explore More!’ Regional Promotions program in 2024, building on 3 years of local impact. The program, launched in the summer of 2021 to support the promotion of our regional assets, provides information about ‘more’ things to do in our region, including: places to visit and things to see; where to find food & provisions; and local treasures for retail shopping. In 2022, calendar event promotions were added to the program. In 2024, the program is continuing through the fiscal sponsorship of Hanford Mills Museum, making it possible to offer the opportunity at no cost to participating partners. The program, now in its fourth year, will again be administered by Susan O’Handley, Central NY Mobile Marketing, on behalf of Hanford Mills Museum. 

Hanford Mills Museum invites regional businesses and organizations to participate in the 2024 Explore More! Program. As part of the program, a section of the hanfordmills.org website is dedicated to enhance visibility of partners in order to become a meaningful area resource for community members, business partners and tourism guests. These pages continue to be within the top ten most viewed pages at the Hanford Mills Museum website and program partners receive expanded visibility through search and display ads through the museum’s GoogleAds program for non-profits.

New businesses and organizations can apply to participate at the Hanford Mills Museum website at the link below. It is requested that all new applications be submitted by March 15, 2024 so that new content can be incorporated into the website in time for spring and summer updates. Event calendar updates will take place monthly throughout the year.
