FREE Communication Tools for Communities & Businesses Reopening from COVID-19
Friday, June 05, 2020
Economic developers, chamber executives, leaders and businesses are invited to use the Beyond the Curve: A Toolkit for Reopening Your Community. This FREE resource is designed to provide local leaders and business owners with the strategy and communication tools necessary to reopen in a way that enhances economic recovery efforts.
COVID-19 has temporarily halted daily life, impacting how we do business, gather as friends, family and communities. The restrictions put in place to prevent the spread of the virus have been necessary and effective, but they have also hurt local economies and the small businesses that make each community a special place to live and work. As we come out of these restrictions, community leaders are searching for tools to support local businesses and to empower them to communicate with the community at-large. This toolkit includes resources to support these efforts.
Things are changing rapidly and economic developers are busier than ever. This FREE toolkit includes templates that can be customized to share information and to communicate quickly.
Follow this blueprint to audit community needs, identify goals and audiences, and to develop an overall communications strategy. Once complete, articles, press releases, and social media posts are included to help communities and businesses to communicate plans and policies related to reopening in stages. Finally, resources are included to help make the transition back to work go smoothly.
WEDA is confident that the resources provided in Beyond the Curve: A Toolkit for Reopening Your Community will better position your community for a bright future in a post-COVID-19 world.
