Creative Economic Development Consulting
Economic Development Services
Creative EDC specializes in unique, distinct economic development consulting. Our firm’s approach is tailored to bring innovation to each community. We believe there are no templates in economic development – we like to color outside the lines.
Creative EDC consults on strategic planning, organizational development, target marketing, business retention and expansion, product development and the many facets of a dynamic economic development program including site selection and policy development. Since its founding in 2012, Creative EDC has expanded its consulting practice to include social media and e-marketing services and launched CreativeSiteAssessment.com, a first-in-the-nation product development tool.
Creative EDC and Applied Marketing have partnered on numerous projects for county and regional economic development organizations (EDO) and statewide organizations. Our partnership has created winning business recruitment strategies for communities of many sizes.
Economic Development Consulting
Sanford Holshouser Economic Development Consulting, LLC was formed with experienced local, regional, and state economic developers who have firsthand experience siting new facilities, retaining existing businesses, developing product, managing EDOs, and marketing. Our approach is different because we are economic developers. We are focused on implementation and results for our clients from the beginning of every project.
Sanford Holshouser offers a full range of economic development consulting: site selection, economic development planning, and public policy analysis.
We specialize in helping EDOs with strategic and action planning; product development; organizational and operational consulting; recruiting; business retention and expansion; and return on investment analysis. Our site selection work has included corporate headquarters, manufacturing, and distribution.
Sanford Holshouser and Applied Marketing have partnered on numerous projects for county-level EDOs and statewide utilities over our nine-year partnership.
