As mobile technology becomes increasingly prevalent, the Department has made a concerted effort to broadcast information through newly developed digital marketing materials and social media. Information about the City now reaches clients directly; good news is shared via real-time updates.
Last year, the department launched an eNews microsite, which is updated on a monthly basis with relevant stories, announcements, and news.
The VBED is becoming more and more engaged with its followers on various social networking websites. Stay up to date with the latest Virginia Beach economic development news.
Virginia Beach Economic Development (VBED) became the first economic development department to convert marketing materials into interactive iBook formats, featuring accessible data, photos, and videos highlighting the City's business advantages. In addition, the highly successful targeted email blast program continued with 22 quarterly eNewsletters, video testimonials, and project announcements released to more than 5500 subscribers from the U.S. and around the world.
