Written by broebling on November 10, 2017
Press Release – Powder River Energy Corporation (PRECorp) is giving a helping hand to the communities it serves with a full-service economic development website and portal. The site will focus on aiding in business attraction, business retention and expansion, and workforce development in northeast Wyoming.
Member and Community Engagement and Sustainable Growth are two of three central aspects of PRECorp’s Strategic Vision to better serve its membership. To help fulfill that vision PRECorp has launched the economic development website and portal.
The new PRECorp website centralizes key information and resources for regional stakeholders, entrepreneurs, businesses, and economic development organizations. It is PRECorp’s hope that visitors will find the tools and information on the site to be thorough and easy to use.
Visitors can view the site and its information at www.precorpbizworks.com. Each section of the site has further links to additional resources and best practices, and contains community profiles including demographic information on most of the communities PRECorp serves. Working with its communities, PRECorp intends to further develop the site and community profiles by adding relevant news stories, event information, and other local information helpful in business development and expansion.
The site was developed through an agreement with the Golden Shovel Agency, a full-service economic development marketing firm with a strong focus on website development and online communications. “For an organization the size of PRECorp, having a partner like the Golden Shovel Agency is key to creating an informative and information-rich economic development website and market presence for the communities we serve. Golden Shovel is able to provide the expertise, tools, services and partnerships otherwise unattainable through stand-alone community efforts,” said Jeff Bumgarner, VP of Member Services for PRECorp. “This website will help increase the visibility of our communities and what they have to offer prospective businesses
looking to locate in the area as well as will help find new avenues to facilitate local business growth.”
“PRECorp has put together a powerful strategic vision and Golden Shovel is honored to be part of the execution,” observed John Marshall, President of Golden Shovel. “The website and coordinated communications network will be a powerful resource for Wyoming and will help showcase economic development opportunities.”
