Out with the old and in with the new. Visit Oregon just released a brand new website. For almost 20 years the website has been dormant and others have popped up around it like Travel Oregon and That Oregon Life. Both of these sites have fantastic names and content while visitoregon.com was just sitting there rotting away.
In Steps New Management
VisitOregon.com was basically just purchased and parked. The original owner had hoped to one day build it out and plans were put to the side for other more pressing marketing efforts. All while forgetting about even owning the domain. 20 years later, and many projects, the idea to build it out popped back up. When is now a good time? Needing help in building the website, the owner reached out to a local marketing company ( Oregon Web Solutions ) who agreed to take on the task. “Thinking about building out a site like Visit Oregon can be quite and undertaking as there are so many directions you can go, you really just have to grab one and run with it.” Says Digital Marketer Seth Morrisey. “If you try and figure out the whole thing at once, you will just bog yourself down and never do anything. Start small and go from there.”
What The Site Is About
www.visitoregon.com will be an all encompassing website. A true guide to Oregon and all it has to offer. Everything from:
- Golf Courses
- And so much more…
The Passion Is There
Having lived in Oregon their whole lives, the team at Oregon Web Solutions has a real passion for Oregon which is what made them the perfect fit for the job. With an in house video production company and marketing team, it just makes sense. “This is going to be a very long build out, but in the end, it will be huge.” Says Seth. “We are doing it for the love of Oregon. I have always wanted a project of this size that incorporated our video end of things and it just sort of fell into our laps.” Seth also is co-owner of Morrisey Video Productions which has been doing film work for the past 15 years. Below is one of their most recent videos to get and idea:
Having done videos for companies like OPB, Oregon Field Guide, as well as many others, they have the experience and knowledge to capture some great footage for such a website. “It will be a lot of fun.” Says Brit.
What To Expect In The Future
As the site gets built out, it will take some time. Early sponsors are beginning to come in the door which helps move the project along as it is a self-funded project in the beginning stages. As sponsors grow, more and more content and video will begin to come out of the woodwork as they are able to hire more writers and editors to help with the load.
Visit Oregon Sponsor Programs
Visitoregon.com will be offering sponsorship programs for any businesses based in Oregon. Different levels of sponsorship will include things like banner ads, sidebar ads, Sponsorship page links, Full page sponsor ads, social media blasts, and newsletter mentions. Early sponsors will be locked in at a greatly reduced rate for their positioning and will always have the first option for future publicity and offerings.
