Developing a Brand: Tools for Marketing Your Region

Posted on: November 12th, 2015 by NADO Admin

In today’s world of virtual and visual information, regional development organizations (RDOs) have the opportunity to harness technology to better tell their story.  At NADO’s Annual Training Conference, the presenters in this session showcased ways in which RDOs can develop a brand, tell the complicated story of the work they do and services they provide, and market themselves to stakeholders in their region and beyond.  Participants learned from organizations that have used video, web, and social media to increase their visibility, outreach, and awareness.
