Premier Economic Development Websites
Economic Gateway Websites
Golden Shovel Agency began its life as a technology company when its founders developed the Economic Gateway to meet the needs of economic development organizations. Since then, we’ve grown to serve organizations of all sizes, but the specialized technology behind the Economic Gateway remains a core offering. The sites are designed to answer the specific questions of your audiences—site selectors, existing businesses, job seekers, and other stakeholders. You can read more about these features below.
Software as a Service
Software is usually seen as a tool. We see it differently. We see software as a service, and one that requires human support and guidance. Our consultants meet with you monthly (and are available by phone and email) to help leverage the tools embedded in your website to maximize your impact.
Search Engine Optimization ensures that your website is prominent in the keyword searches executed by your target audience. In order to be noticed, your SEO approach must be effective. Our team conducts advanced, exhaustive analysis of your website on an ongoing basis to ensure that it conforms to the metrics of the various search engines on the internet. Quarterly reports keep you apprised of your penetration.
