Fort Myers, Florida (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
The Fort Myers Regional Partnership unveils the upgraded, primary website, http://www.FortMyersRegionalPartnership.com, to serve as an interactive communications tool for the next phase of the successful, grassroots “Together for Business” campaign.
The Fort Myers Regional Partnership, Lee County’s Economic Development Office, is driven by its long-term, forward-thinking mission to expand and diversify the local economy.
The new website features a clean, easy-to-navigate design, myriad share tools, downloadable studies and resources, dynamic maps, and video testimonials.
Additionally, an interactive Property Locator feature allows easy search by site and buildings type, communities, and businesses within Lee County.
Key business leaders representing target industries such as life sciences, manufacturing, information technology, and corporate headquarters who have relocated to or expanded in Lee County graciously devoted their time to share their “We Chose Lee” video blog to entice new companies to move to Lee County and to help existing businesses continue to prosper.
“Our website serves as the foundation of our interactive communications strategy, providing a wealth of information and resources for our business community, site selectors, industry leaders, and media,” said Jennifer Berg, marketing and communications director of the Fort Myers Regional Partnership.
“We embrace technology and acknowledge the importance of online presence and authentic social media as part of our overall marketing strategy,” continued Jim Moore. “It is the integration of high-tech and high-touch within our business community that brings companies to Lee County.
In addition to the core website, http://www.FortMyersRegionalPartnership.com, future plans include the launch of a mobile site as well as enhanced social media networks.
