Growth Dimensions Launches Revamped, Mobile-Friendly Website Designed to Showcase All That Belvidere and Boone County Have to Offer

23 Dec 2019

Belvidere, IL: Realizing that their old website was dated, lacking some much-needed capabilities and not fully responsive to mobile devices, Growth Dimensions invested in a new, mobile-friendly and easy-to-navigate website.

The organization recently launched its new website, which is used by local, national and global site selectors, developers, Realtors and investors. It also is an avenue for community members and business owners to explore all the area offers its residents and stakeholders. 

To develop and design the site, Growth Dimensions teamed with Golden Shovel Agency, a national economic development communications firm recognized for its award-winning design and expertise in business and workforce attraction. 

"On behalf of the Golden Shovel team, it has been a pleasure partnering with Growth Dimensions on developing their website,” says Aaron Brossoit, Golden Shovel Chief Executive Officer.  “The new site has all the tools to support their business attraction efforts and many resources for supporting and communicating with existing businesses in Boone County. We look forward to seeing it in action!"

In addition to showcasing available sites and properties, the new site also features Growth Dimensions’ investors, highlighting their organization and investment levels. As an SEO-friendly site, they also set a goal to increase page presence and web searches and ultimately drive more traffic to their website.

 “It was extremely easy to work with Golden Shovel in getting the new Growth Dimensions website up and running,” says Heather Wick, Business Enterprise Manager at Growth Dimensions. “We are extremely pleased with how the site turned out, and we are excited that it helps us promote and showcase what Belvidere and Boone County has to offer to new and existing businesses.” 

Growth Dimensions continues to work with local organizations and businesses to add content promoting the area, businesses and the assets of Belvidere and Boone County, with hopes of attracting outside visitors to the area to shop, dine and attend entertainment events.
