Podcast Episode 61 - Marketing America's Most Promising Places with Amanda Ellis

Episode # 61 of the Econ Dev Show Podcast is now live.

In this episode, Dane talks with Amanda Ellis, Editor in Chief of Livability.com, about marketing your community for economic development and talent attraction.


Today's email is brought to you by Convergence.

We get it. You're pulled in too many directions, last minute RFP's and politics.  Requests for help. Managing a board. And the list goes on.

Your team has to cover a lot of ground. You've got a strategy to execute and results to deliver.

But without the right system in place, you end up with: stress, late nights, frustration and inefficiency.

Convergence can help.  They've built a complete marketing, BRE, communication, reporting, and CRM system optimized for economic developers.


In the episode, we also discuss:

  • Amanda's background (she worked in marketing with the Chattanooga Chamber for years prior to joining Livability)
  • Why marketing, PR, content marketing are important to economic development
  • What drives people to relocate per our research; what's important to them in a community
  • Livability's recently released 2022 Top 100 Best Places to Live
  • What Livability does and what helpful industry expertise we offer

Additionally at the end, since Amanda also hosts the Inside America’s Best Cities podcast, we discuss the difference between being a guest and the host of a podcast.
