The Okmulgee region is rich in industry and is a great place to live. We offer strategic advantages and incentives which demonstrate our commitment to growing our business community.
Okmulgee, Okla. (PRWEB) January 22, 2015
The Okmulgee Area Development Corporation announced today the launch of OkmulgeeDevelopment.com, a comprehensive new brand and website to serve companies considering expansion or relocation in the region. The website will be the online platform for the Okmulgee Area Development Corporation, showcasing its services and providing assistance to companies starting, expanding or relocating to Okmulgee.
The website, developed in partnership with Denver, Colo.-based Atlas Advertising, a national economic development marketing firm, was specifically designed to target business leaders, small business owners, entrepreneurs, developers, business location decision makers, real estate brokers and site selectors. The new website offers a customized-to-Okmulgee real estate search tool, Location One Information System (LOIS), which allows clients to search properties by a variety of characteristics and print a report for decision makers. Users will also be able to view Okmulgee’s menu of incentives and financing, demographic data, and cost of living information.
The website, which is the result of significant time and investment, also highlights Okmulgee’s unique strengths through the use of data and infographics. For example, the Okmulgee area boasts:
- 979 acres of shovel-ready land for business and industrial use.
- A cost-of-living index below the national average.
- A prime location in a right-to-work state, in close proximity to major air, highway and rail systems.
Okmulgee City Manager Roger Ballenger sees the website as a way to help site locators and businesses find essential data about Okmulgee, especially the strategic advantages that the area can offer new and expanding business and industry. "This website gives Okmulgee visibility in the competition for new jobs," he said.
The Okmulgee Area Development Corporation has concurrently rebranded with a new logo and tagline: Open. Options. Opportunities. The branding effort is focused on helping businesses and site selectors consider relocation in Okmulgee. Market research indicates that once business leaders, site selectors and real estate brokers get to know the development opportunities and economic environment of Okmulgee, they consider it to be a viable and competitive business destination.
“The Okmulgee region is rich in industry and is a great place to live. We offer strategic advantages and incentives which demonstrate our commitment to growing our business community,” said Dr. Bob Klabenes, Economic Development Director with the Okmulgee Area Development Corporation. “In that spirit, our innovative new brand and website has been designed to attract more inquiries from companies that are expanding in or relocating to the Okmulgee region.”
“Atlas is proud to have worked alongside OADC in the development and launch of OkmulgeeDevelopment.com,” said Guillermo Mazier, Director of Strategic Accounts at Atlas Advertising. “The new site will act as a launching pad for the expansion of Okmulgee’s business community; providing the information and tools needed to discover this unique region.”
