The City of Eagle Engages Locable to Grow Impact
Automated Cross-Promotion Tools and a New Website to Enable New Era for Local Businesses
EAGLE, IDAHO: The City of Eagle is working to expand their impact and marketing footprint by working with Locable to launch a new Economic Development Department website including local resources such as a robust self-updating events calendar, merchant directory, and community partners.
“Our local small businesses work hard to support the community along with providing jobs and other opportunities. We wanted to bring these free resources to help them with their visibility and viability by adding tools to their toolbox so they can be even more successful,” Tammie Halcomb, they city’s Economic Development Specialist said.
Participation is free for local merchants and community partners and includes tools such as a community calendar that automatically incorporates events from Eagle and other organizations of the merchants' choosing.
These tools can be added to nearly any existing website enabling the community to work together in much the same way that flyers hang in merchant windows and on corkboards throughout the town. This “it-takes-a-village” approach is automated so that no one is burdened with doing all the work. It’s expected that each participant will reach thousands of people each month as a result of leveraging their local connections.
As to why they’re taking action now, Halcomb states, “Eagle’s still a community with a small town feel; that’s something our residents love. What better way to capitalize on that feeling, than to bring everyone closer by having information right at their fingertips? To know when a retailer is having a sale, when an eatery has a new flavor or dish, or when an event comes to town, is to truly live that small town lifestyle where we all support one another. Local supporting local. Our businesses deserve it and so do our residents.”
The program will focus on Eagle businesses, however, it will also include other organizations and community partners which make Eagle a great place to live.
