October 10-- There's a new video on the worldwide web and it's all about opportunities available in Toombs County.
The Toombs County Development Authority paid $30,000 to produce a video designed to attract new industry to the community. You can see the vido by clicking www.toombsconnect.com. The Authority released the following info on the video.
"The Toombs County Development Authority (TCDA) has produced and released a new video about growth and business in the county. The video offers a glimpse of business growth and lifestyle as told by business leaders who address the viewer in a testimonial style while showing Toombs County at work and play. The video is featured on the TCDA web site at www.toombsconnect.com.
“We’re very pleased with the results,” said Bill Mitchell, Executive Director of the TCDA. “We felt it was important to tell our story to companies and site selection consultants that are thinking of bringing jobs to our area of the state.”
That story includes not only testimonials from companies like Dot Foods, Oxford Apparel and Trane which have long called Toombs County home, but growing entrepreneurial companies such as U.S. Energy Sciences and more recently, new companies such as Chicken of the Sea – GA Canning and US Pet Nutrition.
“We’ve really emphasized our proximity to the Port in Savannah,” said B.J. Davis, Local Manager for Georgia Power & Chair of the TCDA. “It’s a good story that will highlight our community spirit and ability to support our diversified workforce.”
Supporting existing companies that are expanding and recruiting companies who are relocating are the primary jobs of the Toombs County Development Authority. The video launch caps a two and a half year phase of rebranding for the Authority that has provided a long-term strategic plan, a new visual identity & logo, assorted marketing materials and web site. The TCDA spent more than a year alone shooting footage before making the video so that it provides a wide variety of seasonal “slices of life” for the viewer. In addition to port & infrastructure, business scenes and testimonials, the video also captures The Vidalia Onion Festival, Tales From the Altamaha, The Real Squeal Bar-B-Que & Bluegrass Festival and many others, as well as dramatic aerial views of the county.
“We’re really grateful for all of the area business leaders who came together and helped us tell the story,” said Pollyann Martin, Associate Broker with The Temples Company and 2010 TCDA Marketing Committee Chair. “This is the kind of video message that promotes our county, our people, our workforce and the assets we have in Toombs County”.
Coastal Marketing Group (www.coastalmarketinggroup.com) produced the video in collaboration with the TCDA."
