As we near the end of June, I wanted to provide an update on the Stokes County Web Site Project. At this time we have 40 web sites live and functioning with 40+ more in process. These sites cover a wide variety of businesses and non-profits and range from the simple to a little more advanced. There are blogs, twitter accounts, facebook pages, flicker accounts, on-line shops, menus and much more.
The impact of this project over time can be significant. These are businesses that had little or web presence and now they do. As web marketing continues to evolve, the need to be engaged will become even more important. This isn't true just for businesses that intend to sell products on-line but to those that are supplying services of almost any kind. If you can't be found on a search engine, you are giving business away. It is the goal of Stokes County Economic Development that this not happen to our businesses.
There is still time to be included in the process. It is very simple: if you have a business in Stokes County and would like to have a web site, we can build on for you. The total cost to you is $59.95. This covers acquiring your domain name and hosting the site for 12 months. We will work with you to set up your site, populate the information, teach you how to update your material, link you to other sites, promote your site on our facebook page, blog, EDC and tourism web sites and you will be on your way. Each of the sites are using one of four templates developed for the project and each has internal content management.
If you have a business in Stokes County or know someone who does and they do not have a web site, have them contact us today!
