The website promotes the assets, probusiness climate, and location of the TAP Alliance by providing detailed information on demographics, workforce, infrastructure, state and local tax incentives and more.

Visitors will be able to keep up with news about the TAP Alliance and industry in the region through the blog component of the website. “We want to keep the website fresh, and a blog is a great way to do that,” according to Gary Matthews, Executive Director of the Tishomingo County Development Foundation.

The new website was designed and developed by Kathy Jacobs Design & Marketing, LLC, who also researched and wrote the content for many pages of the site. It was designed with site selectors and industry professionals in mind.

“We considered the information most frequently sought by site selectors and business leaders and organized the navigation accordingly,” says Jacobs. “The text was written specifically for website use, meaning it had to be quickly scannable while at the same time providing detailed information for those who need it.”

The development of the website was made possible in part by funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission.
