"In tough economic times, an organization's website is the most cost effective and efficient means of communicating with an organization's audience". Source: Development Results, LLC.
Most economic development organizations understand the importance of a strong web presence. Unfortunately, many websites simply do not produce the results organizations intend for them. And when websites don't measure up, the organization is less effective, and when that happens the community, region or state potentially loses the opportunity for job creating investment.
As the leading web strategist in the economic devleopment profession, ED Solutions, Inc. has helped literally hundreds of organizations develop high quality effective websites (check out a sample of some of the sites resulting from our strategies) designed by some of the best web firms serving the economic development business, including Atlas Advertising, Gray Loon, Cirrus ABS and ED Suite.
During this interactive webinar on April 16th, Mark James, the nation's leading trainer on the use of technology in the economic development profession and founder of ED Solutions, Inc., will offer a very detailed review on how to develop a world class economic development web site.
The agenda includes:
-The role of Web in the economic development profession
-What we're doing well...what were doing poorly
-The three immutable requirements for ED Web
-Maps, maps, maps
-How to be found by search engines
-The role of social media in economic development
-Hiring the right website design firm
Joining Mark in this webinar will be Yvonne Rayburn, Senior Project Manager for Webbed Marketing in Columbus, Ohio. Webbed Marketing is a well-respected search engine optimization firm whose unique approach and straightforward thinking about how to optimize your website will provide attendees with strategies they can implement immediately. These guys are also great at discussing social media and Yvonne will be participating in that portion of the webinar as well.
