Meet Cory Price with Townhall

By Leeann Froese Weekly for the past couple of years it has been our pleasure to introduce people we encounter and then capture #withTownHall!

This does not mean that we have hired someone new and added them to our Town Hall Brands team; rather we just get to interact with so many amazing people that we want to expand networks and introduce them to you, and you to them. This week #withTownHall, we introduce you to Cory Price.

Cory Price

If he isn't making his own music or enjoying the outdoors, Cory Price can be found behind the mic at Roundhouse Radio 98.3 in Vancouver, BC.

Cory’s appreciation for music began at an early age when he frequently listened to his grandma sing. At 14, he picked up the guitar, and there was no going back.

He got his broadcast experience started by volunteering at SFU's Campus radio, and his official career in broadcasting started in Squamish. He has also worked at 104.9 FM Vancouver, spent nine years at CFOX FM, and did stints with LG 104.3 and the 102.7 The Peak Vancouver before settling in at Roundhouse Radio.

At Roundhouse Radio he is the music director, produces of "Live from Railtown", a one hour media/culture show, and is the Host of "Tracks", a one hour new music show.

We are lucky that our PR team gets to work with Cory and his team from time to time.

When he isn't working he plays guitar in his own band, Sex With Strangers. Check them out!

With all he does, will you help us welcome Cory as a featured person #withTownHall ?

Create your kit - presented to YVR bloggers - what to include in your media kit

  By Leeann Froese

Are you a blogger? Do you have a media kit?

YVR Bloggers is a group curated by Daddy Blogger Ricky Shetty, and the objective of the group is to hold monthly networking events to educate and inspire bloggers in Vancouver.

The group, which I was invited to join on account of this little #withTownHall blog, is an awesome place to network with bloggers across different industries both offline and online.

At a recent meetup the topic was Marketing Your Blog using Social Media and SEO

Held at the luxurious Waterfall Building near Granville Island the event featured a panel of SEO experts who shared their insights and tips on how your blog can be found on search engines:

Bosco Anthony from Bosco Anthony, Emily Chow from Chow Communications, Christian Thomson from Marwick Marketing, Cijaye DePradine from Web Cash Coach, Keith Kidwell from Netsurf Marketing, Christine Nielsen from Ms Pixel, Chuck Anderson from Blissful Parenting, and Bonnie Sainsbury from Social Media Smarter.

Social media marketing educator Matt Astefan of Web Friendly gave a terrific and super useful keynote: "Facebook Hacking: How to Get Free (or Cheap) Reach with Facebook".

For fun, Victoria Clements sang a Christmas song to get us into the holiday mood, and the Salvation Army was also on hand to raise awareness for the work they do and collect donations. There was also music, and sponsors and so much more happening at this event - including a visit from Santa Claus! To learn more, do check out the YVR Bloggers website and social feeds.

I am proud to share that I also had a small role in the evening. I was invited to share some of my blogger relations expertise, so I shared a top line look at what to include when a blogger builds a media kit (can also be known as a rate sheet) - an essential if you are a blogger wanting to work with marketing and PR companies and sponsored posts and advertisers.

So click on through to see 5 things you need to include, and how to use the content.
