Neighbourhood information, relevant to the city centre residential population, often struggles for traction in an urban space where competition for your attention and awareness, includes significant numbers of regional activities pitched at all Aucklanders.    

The difficulties of reaching residents in apartments, is a regular point of discussion at networking meetings of service providers.  Locals themselves often ask: "Where would I have heard about that?".  Apartment letterboxes are off-limits to leaflet drops, noticeboards are far and few between and while social media has some reach, our experience at Splice is that it is a combination of vehicles, including word-of-mouth through relationships, that gets the message out.

Splice Snippets, a monthly two page e-news to apartment dwellers, building managers and other neighbourhood stakeholders, is part of our response to this identified need. Recipients are encouraged to forward Splice Snippets to others, print it and display it on apartment noticeboards and share it on Facebook pages. 

Content endeavours to be supportive of the smaller neighbourhood groups and profile activity or awareness to issues that cannot be sourced through more traditional or established channels. Our monthly Splice Snippets gives the recipient an introductory taste of what is happening locally, using hyperlinks to facilitate the curious to dig a little deeper where interested.
