About Discover Rhode Island:
Discover Rhode Island showcases some of the best that Rhode Island has to offer. Our website is meant to be a resource for people who are looking for businesses, recreation and entertainment throughout the 39 cities and towns of Rhode Island. In addition, we have sections dedicated to specific industries throughout Rhode Island. From Automobiles to Weddings, we’ve got Rhode Island covered. Our monthly magazine has features and articles that help readers learn more about Rhode Island businesses, places to go, and things to do.
We also produce a television show that airs locally on ABC. We’ve produced 19 premier episodes and have interviewed 143 businesses so far, all who have gotten tremendous exposure from being featured on our premiers. Combined with our Discover Automobiles show, our online and on air views are now over five hundred thousand.
Most of the half hour shows center around a particular city or town, where we talk about its history, special places, and what makes it a great place to live, work, or visit. We also highlight some of the best businesses in that city or town, who have been recommended for inclusion in the show. In these “Business Profile” segments, the owners talk about their business and what makes them special. Whether it’s their history, their products, services or employees, every business has a story to tell, and Discover Rhode Island captures those stories in an interesting and educational segment. These business segments are also uploaded to YouTube separately, and often will rank highly when searching for a Rhode Island business.
And the value of the segments is even more evident in what it does for your business’s SEO. Custom, original content is king when it comes to search engine optimization, and an original video, with sight, sound and motion is proven to add exponential value when added to your website or YouTube channel.
Discover Rhode Island interviews are filmed at our studio at 38 Bellevue Avenue in Newport. The studio is set up with three professional grade camera, redundant microphones, and studio lighting. Because of the need for social distancing, the person being interviewed is in the studio alone, and the interviewer is in a separate room with a live video link. This allows for a natural interview without the need for masks, while still adhering to CDC guidelines for safety.
