OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Department of Commerce has launched a new web presence for the agency that features a new, cleaner, customer-focused design.
“Our goal was to not only clean up any outdated material that was still online, but to make the site easier to navigate,” said Bryan Boone, internet media manager, Oklahoma Department of Commerce.
One area of the new website that has received attention is the look and feel. The site now mirrors the design of the sales collateral materials used by Commerce to draw national and international investment to the state.
“We wanted all of our material to share a common look that reflects the friendly character of our state,” said Boone. “This isn’t just a website; it’s a dynamic recruitment and retention tool for Oklahoma.”
According to Boone, the front page of the new site will change regularly to reflect different industries that are important to Oklahoma’s economy, such as energy, manufacturing or aerospace.
The new site will also allow visitors to see where the Department of Commerce is going to promote the state. Through the new “upcoming events” section visitors can see the dates and locations of conferences, tradeshows and upcoming events. This gives businesses, entrepreneurs and the public another opportunity to engage with Commerce staff.
The Oklahoma Department of Commerce invites you to visit the new site at www.OKcommerce.gov. And, follow Commerce on twitter @okcommerce.
The Oklahoma Department of Commerce is the primary economic and business development entity in the state. The Oklahoma Department of Commerce works with state leaders, economic development entities and communities to increase the quantity and quality of jobs in Oklahoma.
