Winner of the 2015 IEDC Excellence in Economic Development Award for their website, York County treads new ground in rural economic development online.
York County Development Corporation approached Golden Shovel in 2014 aiming to increase their online presence with a new economic development website. The goal of the new website is to promote the retention and expansion of existing business, market industry-ready sites and buildings to attract capital investment, highlight unique benefits and quality of life in the county and create awareness of workforce training and development opportunities in the region. Golden Shovel worked closely with YCDC to build a website with a robust focus on its location advantage, demographics, major employers, and labor availability, ultimately encouraging businesses to consider York County as a new location.
“As York County Development Corporation undertook the design of the website in partnership with Golden Shovel, we had some high level goals. In today's competitive world, it is imperative to stand out, yet have our site answer the questions a business or site selector would have. Golden Shovel has been an invaluable partner in our efforts.”
