BATESVILLE — The City of Batesville has announced the launch of the Discover Batesville electronic newsletter focused on economic development, which will be published quarterly.
Designed for current and future residents, business owners and leaders, the e-newsletter will highlight Batesville’s economic development initiatives, awards and businesses, celebrating opportunities for growth within the community.
The e-newsletter is the latest in a series of efforts to promote the town of Batesville by the Batesville Marketing Coalition. Comprised of representatives from the Batesville Economic Development Commission, Batesville Main Street, Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Batesville, the BMC is dedicated to sharing the authentic history of Batesville, while highlighting the many amenities, attractions and resources it has to offer.
The e-newsletter will serve as a snapshot of large-scale marketing efforts.
“The newsletter is designed to keep readers informed on relevant economic topics, provide information on current programs and available resources, and engage residents and business owners to access and contribute to economic well-being. our city,” said Sarah Lamping, Economic Development Director for the City of Batesville. “It gives us the opportunity to tell ‘our story’ to individuals and businesses outside of the community.”
To do this, the fall edition of the e-newsletter should feature topics of interest to businesses and residents. Economic news such as the construction of IKIO LED Lighting at the Shell Building in the Batesville Industrial Park will be contrasted with featurettes of much-loved seasonal traditions like the Batesville Farmers’ Market.
The e-newsletter is just one example of BMC’s recent marketing efforts, which are running as Discover Batesville, a multi-channel marketing initiative designed to raise awareness of all that Batesville has to offer. As part of this initiative, Discover Batesville and the City of Batesville are working with the BMC to launch a new website and develop other marketing initiatives.
“We want entrepreneurs, families, retirees and remote workers to feel connected to our community,” said Tricia Miller, Community Development Manager for the City of Batesville. “We have developed a strong marketing strategy with Discover Batesville to show current and future residents, as well as potential and current business owners, that we are moving forward and investing in infrastructure, broadband, a diverse work and a variety of housing options.”
In addition to easy access to three major metropolitan areas and promising business opportunities, the city of Batesville offers award-winning educational offerings, top-notch healthcare facilities, family-friendly activities, a diverse arts scene and a wide variety of recreational opportunities for all ages. Residents and visitors can use the walking paths and bike paths, stroll downtown to enjoy the rich culture and intricate arts scene, local restaurants and other family entertainment.
“The overall goal of the marketing campaign is to strengthen and foster growth in Batesville. Whether you’re a CEO looking for a location for an expansion project or a young family looking for a place to call home, the Discover Batesville website has all the details you need to make those important decisions. said Miller. “Our newest addition, the e-newsletter, will help us explain why Batesville is a great place to live or relocate for people of all ages.”
