Show Me Richmond Hill

In case you haven’t heard, there is an initiative brought about by private business owners in the area to promote Richmond Hill as a community. If this idea is new to you, don’t worry – you can catch up on the skinny here.

In the interest of full disclosure, I have agreed to be a member of the interim board. Why? Well, first I think the idea is sound and second I think I can be a useful party in looking at the particulars – not to mention associating with the other phenom folks on the committee.

If you want to check out the actual marketing plan from Robertson and Markowitz, participate, or just see what it is all about, meet us at Glazer’s at 4:30PM, Tuesday, February 19th.

  1. Thanks Andy. I think you are right in your assessment. And your point of view is an important one as your background is quite a bit different than others involved.

    I hope to see you at the presentation Tuesday – and Toastmasters Monday 🙂

    This is a very positive development for Richmond Hill. As an international tourism marketer and with the experience I made as former Director of Tour & Travel at the Savannah Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, I can say one thing with confidence:

    Any city, including Richmond Hill, has to compete on a global level. Consumers nowadays are sophisticated and well informed(be it tourists, baby boomers looking for a second/third home, northerners seeking to retire in the South, companies looking for competitive locations to set-up production or distribution…). In short, competition is stiffer than ever.

    Richmond Hill cannot (and should not) be everything for everyone. But Richmond Hill has niche strengths and assets that can be highlighted. And this campaign will be good for economic development and for the well-being of the community.

    Can’t wait to learn more.

    I was very impressed by the commercial. And I can’t wait to see the website when it’s open!

    One (generic and easy-to-answer) question…

    How does this campaign affect RH families? I’m guessing we should be expecting new businesses here and there because of it. But, are there details past that? Like what kind of businesses they are hoping will come? And when?

    This is all very exciting. Richmond Hill’s really “coming of its own” very nicely! It’s becoming the “it” place to live in the Savannah area and people are talking.
