Regional sites using Internet marketing to promote area

MyRetailRoanoke.com launched yesterday with the goal of aggressively seeking and attracting retailers to Roanoke, Virginia. The City of Roanoke, with the efforts of Stuart Mease, have done an excellent job recently of implementing a Internet based strategic marketing plan to promote the region’s opportunities and economic development efforts. From blogging to MySpace to videos on YouTube, the city is making great strides in highlighting the area’s attractive qualities for businesses, residents, and visitors. I’d also like to note that these two Roanoke sites are prominently using RSS feeds and podcasts.
