Forward Devils Lake Economic Development Launches Newly Designed Website

22 Jun 2021


DEVILS LAKE, ND -- Forward Devils Lake recently launched a newly designed website, created by Golden Shovel Agency, to further strengthen its online presence and economic growth for the community. The new site has a professional look with a practical layout for any type of visitors' needs.

The Devils Lake region is a workforce-attractive and friendly region that truly is a great place to live, work, and play. The website and further incremental changes to the site will help the organization to even better show the attractiveness to the Devils Lake region.

“We wanted an Economic Development website with specific information for businesses and individuals looking to relocate to North Dakota, specifically the Devils Lake region,” said Brad Barth, Executive Director at Forward Devils Lake. “By building the primary website and getting the content management system in place, the City of Devils Lake will be able to build a newer sister site with all of the same features, but content more relevant to them.”

This website design project was a first for Forward Devils Lake Economic Development, as it had previously shared space with the Chamber and Tourism sectors. Having its own dedicated website will not only help to build the organization’s identity, but also to help market to a different audience compared to the “visitor/tourist” type of audience.

Forward Devils Lake collaborated with Golden Shovel Agency for its website design project. The national economic development communications firm is recognized for its award-winning design and expertise in business and workforce attraction. “Working with Golden Shovel Agency proved to be a professional, easy way to get a website built,” said Barth. “When you’re a small, one-person organization, you have a lot on your plate and working with Golden Shovel makes it pretty simple.”

“Working with Forward Devils Lake Economic Development has been a great experience,” said Aaron Brossoit, CEO of Golden Shovel Agency. “We look forward to all the great things that will come with this website design project and to further collaboration with Forward Devils Lake.”
