Communities use marketing techniques to attract, retain and expand businesses, improve a community's image internally and externally and promote local policies and programs. Through marketing efforts, economic developers provide accurate, up-to-date and credible information to those interested in investing, locating or expanding in a specific area. This course will examine who the target audience needs to be for a community's message and look at what that message should contain. The course will also examine various mediums of communication, with particular emphasis on the Internet as an economic development marketing tool.
