Thrive Madison Region, Wisconsin USA

Thrive, an economic development organization in Wisconsin, is using social media to further their efforts to promote business and economic growth in this 8 county region.

After our February meeting in of the Social Media Breakfast Madison group. I am trying to find our businesses and organizations who are using video in their efforts to get the word out.

Thrive's Jennifer Smith, shared with me how they use Youtube, FaceBook , eNews links , Twitter , and direct emails for message sharing.

At the SMB Madison event she also mentioned that they product DVDs of the video clips and provide to those who are less technology savy or who would prefer a non web version. All great ideas to share valuable content that can brand you and carry your message farther.

Is your company considering the use of video?


  1. Thanks for the Shoutout, Wendy! If you're interested in what exactly Thrive's doing (or did last year) you can find our annual report in *video*! http://www.thrivehere.org/aboutus

  2. Jennifer,
    We all need to support our local and regional economic development entities. Be sure you find out where yours is and strike up a conversation. I bet you can find them leveraging social media like Thrive!

  3. This looks like a great initiative. Great to see you engage in your region with practical tips and how to.
