Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Edmonson County Tourism has partnered with local multimedia company Studio DD to launch a brand new website in their continued effort to attract tourists to Edmonson County. While the site name remains the same, cavesandlake.com, it's a brand new, made-from-scratch site with updated information and photos, according to Tourism Director Rhonda Clemmons.
"While our former site had periodic updates we are pleased to have a fresh, new look with our current marketing theme that coincides with our new brochure, all in time for our Edmonson County booth at the KY State Fair," said Clemmons. "Thousands of pieces of literature will be distributed during the state fair that will also direct potential visitors to the site for more information and to make reservations."
In addition, the group has also begun their own social media platforms on Facebook and Instagram.
Clemmons said that while the former site worked well for the needs at that time, using a local company with local interests to help give their marketing a face lift was the right thing to do.
“Working with Darren Doyle of Studio DD gives us local connectivity for immediate needs and updates.”
Studio DD has built several other local sites including those for Edmonson County Government, EC Industrial Authority, EC Chamber of Commerce, EC Planning Commission, and the county's most popular local site, The Edmonson Voice, which has gathered more than 10 million clicks in less than four years.
Clemmons added that the county tourism office strives to market Edmonson County to create a positive economic impact for the community. Tourism is funded entirely from the 3% tourism room tax charged to visitors on hotel, motel & cabin rentals in Edmonson County.
