Economic development marketing is the practice of promoting and attracting investment, businesses, and industries to a particular region or area with the goal of enhancing its economic growth and development. This marketing approach is used by economic development organizations (EDOs) to showcase the advantages and benefits of their region, such as its infrastructure, workforce, cost of living, quality of life, and business-friendly environment. The ultimate goal is to attract companies and entrepreneurs to establish or expand their operations in the region, which can lead to job creation, increased tax revenues, and overall economic growth.
Marketing plays an important role in shaping a region’s economic future by attracting businesses and investment that can create jobs, promoting entrepreneurship, encouraging innovation, and supporting tourism.
Effective economic development marketing strategies depend on the specific goals and characteristics of the region being promoted. Strategies involve a combination of research, stakeholder collaboration, branding, digital marketing (including paid advertising, SEO, Social Media Marketing), networking, and content marketing to showcase the advantages of a region and attract investment, businesses, and industries.
Measuring the success of economic development marketing initiatives requires a clear understanding of the goals and objectives of the initiative. Here are some common ways to measure the success of economic development marketing initiatives: jobs created or retained, investment attracted, business retention and expansion, perception and awareness, and website traffic and engagement. Overall, measuring the success of economic development marketing initiatives requires a combination of quantitative and qualitative measures, tailored to the specific goals and objectives of the initiative. It is important to establish clear metrics at the outset of the initiative and track progress against these metrics over time to assess its effectiveness.

There have been many successful economic development marketing campaigns over the years, and here are a few examples:

“I Am Amsterdam” – Amsterdam, Netherlands: This campaign promoted Amsterdam as a hub for creative talent, innovation, and entrepreneurship. It used a mix of traditional advertising, social media, and online content to showcase the city’s culture, lifestyle, and business opportunities. As a result, Amsterdam attracted a growing number of startups, multinational companies, and investors, and has become one of Europe’s leading startup hubs.

“Choose Chicago” – Chicago, USA: This campaign was launched to promote Chicago as a tourist destination and a hub for business and investment. It used a mix of traditional advertising, social media, and targeted events to showcase Chicago’s cultural attractions, culinary scene, and business ecosystem. The campaign led to a record number of tourists visiting Chicago and attracted major corporate headquarters, such as McDonald’s and GE Healthcare, to the city.

“Made in NYC” – New York City, USA: This campaign promoted New York City as a hub for manufacturing and innovation, with a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises. It used a mix of digital marketing, events, and partnerships to showcase the city’s diverse manufacturing sector, skilled workforce, and supportive ecosystem. As a result, New York City’s manufacturing sector grew by more than 22% between 2011 and 2019, and the campaign has helped to create and retain thousands of jobs.

Overall, successful economic development marketing campaigns require a deep understanding of the region’s strengths and opportunities, a clear and compelling message, and a targeted and integrated approach that leverages a range of marketing channels and tactics.
