Covington County Economic Development Commission (CCEDC) recently launched a newly designed website, created by Golden Shovel Agency, to further strengthen its online presence and foster economic growth.

The website is user-friendly, attention-grabbing, and packed with information about the county.

Often, the website will be the first impression a site selector gets of Covington County. Because of this, it is crucial the website shows professionalism in a first-class presentation that represents all that the county has to offer.

“There are a lot of perceptions as a rural community in the south that we have to overcome,” President and CEO of CCEDC Rick Clifton said. “Having a first-class website that introduces the county makes all the difference. Throughout the site, we focused not only on business attraction but also on workforce development, available sites, speed to market (two-to three-day permitting), and lifestyle.”

Additionally, the new website will improve the organization’s marketing efforts. The CCEDC staff can now confidently direct site selectors and business prospects to the website, knowing they will be impressed, have access to current data, and be able to get answers to any questions they might have – easily and quickly.

“It was an honor to work with the Covington County Economic Development Commission on this website project,” said Golden Shovel CEO Aaron Brossoit. “The new site will be a great asset for site selectors and business prospects to understand opportunities in Covington County and demonstrates their economic growth potential.”
