Mahoning Valley Economic Development Corporation

The Mahoning Valley Economic Development Corporation is a partnership of public and private interests focused on helping businesses grow, and to create and retain jobs.

Business loans are 75% of MVEDC’s work, yet not many business owners don’t realize they offer loans for businesses. MVEDC wanted to change that situation. Farris Marketing created a new marketing and branding campaign that included —

  • A new tag line that repositions MVEDC as “The Growth People”
  • MVEDC’s loan services were branded as “The Grow Biz Fund.”
  • A new user-friendly website was developed for MVEDC (www.MVEDC.com)
  • A micro-marketing website was developed for loan services ( www.GrowBizFund.com).
  • Advertising banners on local news websites to send prospects the websites.
  • Loan prospects are prompted to use the “Quick Loan Qualifier” — a special feature built into the GrowBizFund.com website.

George Farris, CEO of Farris Marketing, says “MVEDC does important work. It’s a valuable resource for the Valley and for businesses. It’s important to make sure businesses know this resource is available to them and to make their services easy to access.”
