About Us: Who We Are
Step Out Buffalo (StepOutBuffalo.com) is the ultimate guide to dining, entertainment and things to do in Buffalo and Western New York.
We’re locals. We’re eaters, drinkers, doers, movers and shakers. We’re curious, adventurous, upbeat, helpful, and don’t take ourselves too seriously. We love our city and work hard to support, promote, and tell the world how awesome it is to live, work, and play in the greater Buffalo area.
We’re all digital, super social, and more visual than any other local publication. Ever heard the saying “A picture’s worth a thousand words?” Yeah, we’re all over that.
We also plan our own events and festivals, because Buffalonians love to party and frankly, we had to get in on that.
Our readers are Buffalovers who are actively a part of our city’s renaissance. They are interested in trying new things, knowing about the latest local dining and entertainment trends, seeking out unique experiences, and supporting local businesses.
Our followers come to us in search of things to do, places to eat and drink, and businesses to check out knowing they will find solid recommendations for the best Buffalo has to offer.
Our audience seeks recommendations through various channels including our website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and our email newsletter specifically to find things to do and places to go, knowing they will get unparalleled ideas about how to best enjoy Buffalo, Western New York, and the Niagara Frontier.
What Makes Us Different?
Throughout the evolution of Step Out Buffalo, we’ve worked hard to build a brand that people come to as a trusted resource. We’ve established ourselves as the go-to destination before the destination—the ultimate guide for anything worth doing, seeing, dining or enjoying.
Simply put, we go where our readers are. We are early adopters who have made it our mission to stay relevant in this social world.
Our email marketing goes beyond spammy advertising. We combine organic editorial content with native advertising to create different types of successful email blasts multiple times a week – our readers love it just as much as our clients do.
