Tarboro tells its story to visitors and newcomers alike.
The Town of Tarboro, NC (www.tarboro-nc.com) is launching a new community website focused on telling its story to prospective visitors and newcomers. “The new site is geared towards attracting people to our great town,” says Town Manager, Sam Noble. “Our intent was to assure that anyone interested in visiting or relocating knew what we had to offer.”
The new site features four community videos of locals telling Tarboro’s story through their experiences growing up and living in the community. “We desired to have locals talking authentically about what Tarboro means to them,” says Latham Jenkins, president of Circumerro Media, the website’s publisher. “Authenticity is always an enduring way to help others understand Tarboro’s value proposition and we achieved this through the video content.”
YouTube users have already been commenting on the video content: “I am moving from Upstate NY to Tarboro in a few weeks, and I appreciate this video very much” and “I visited Tarboro for a couple of weeks back in February and fell in love with your great town. If I was ever gonna emigrate from the UK, Tarboro would be my ideal destination.”
Beyond the videos the new website was developed using a search engine friendly architecture to assure an expanded presence in the search engines. The site (tarboro-nc.com) launched on Wednesday, October 15, 2008.
