Total Solar Eclipse 2024

;

The Great American Eclipse of 2024 is coming…

Is your community prepared?

If your community is gearing up for the Total Solar Eclipse and you’re wanting to capitalize on the event you need an online presence that proves to the world you’re ready for them!

How do we know this?
Well, we’ve literally “been there and done that!” In 2017, McPherson Media started its first adventure in preparation for the Total Solar Eclipse in Ravenna Nebraska, a small town of 1,300 people. Ravenna was on the Eclipse’s center line, and we knew we needed a superior website to provide tourists with information and merchandise for this once-in-a-lifetime event.

When the dust settled…
Ravenna had over 30,000 people move through it in a weekend and our website received traffic from 177 countries including the United States. Businesses thrived and the community prospered.

The Eclipse is coming, are we too early or late to start preparing?

Ravenna’s solar eclipse website was set up a year ahead of the eclipse. Which was a good start for search engines to crawl the information and for marketing our community to the world as a premier location for viewing the eclipse.

According to the Data
According to our websites traffic data and other sources, it was a necessity to have our website up and running with significant information 8-5 months out from the eclipse. This is when a majority of people are going to be making their plans for travel, lodging, and viewing.  

 2 Months Out
From 2 months out until the eclipse it’s absolutely critical to have a functional and informative website to generate as much traffic as possible to or through your community. In the two months preceding the eclipse, our website traffic increased 162% from months 8-5 until the eclipse.

What sort of things do we need on our website?

Email Signup

Email signup is a good way to keep interested parties informed of the latest information about your community.

Local Information

Information regarding places to stay and eat, along with locations to view the eclipse with nearby amenities such as bathrooms.

E-commerce

An online shop or place for visitors to purchase souvenirs to wear at this once in a life time event.

Calendar of Events

A calendar of events that your community is having around the event. The idea behind this is, the longer you keep people in your community the more money they spend.
