New Vibrant Website Engages Site Selectors, Business Owners, and Residents in Preston County

KINGWOOD, WV -- Preston County Economic Development Authority recently launched a newly designed website, created by Golden Shovel Agency, to further strengthen its online presence and foster economic growth. The website has allowed the organization to showcase all of Preston County and what it offers to both businesses and residents.

The existing and potential businesses now have access to demographics, business support, available sites, and information about existing industries. The residents, and those considering making Preston County their home, can access information on various communities in the region, quality of life aspects, and calendar of events.

“Our goals were to create an up-to-date, vibrant website that provided a lot of information about our county in an easy-to-use format,” said Roberta Baylor, PCED, Executive Director of Preston County EDA. “We also wanted a website that provided the information site selectors need when looking for a business location. It was important to us to create this website because there was a need for a resource that could tell the stories of the county, its businesses, people, and why it’s a great place to work and live.

This new website will improve the organization’s marketing efforts by giving business prospects a place to get the information they need. The new site will be easier to update and it paints a great picture of life and business in Preston County.

The website also has many notable features. Local businesses can now post available jobs, and job seekers can view them. There is also a calendar of events where organizations can submit their events. In addition, realtors can submit a site or building to gain additional exposure to the property. The website also includes quickly accessible links to the Preston County Commission, Chamber of Commerce, and CVB.

“It was an honor to work with Preston County Economic Development Authority on this website project,” said Aaron Brossoit, CEO of Golden Shovel Agency. “The new site will be a great asset for target audiences to understand opportunities in the area and demonstrates their economic growth potential.”
