They can see pictures of the staff, the location maps when available or any other tidbit of information to help them decide where they wish visit in the Great State of Oklahoma.
Welcome to Oklahoma was designed as an afterthought while working on another project where I was trying to find a cost effective method to advertise my products. Being a very small business, I was having difficulty finding an avenue that was cost effective and that would point customers to my website advertising my products. While working on my list of prospects, I realized that there were many businesses that I had never heard all over the state, located in many small towns. I wondered how these small businesses advertised to ensure they received plenty of business both from local customers and customers passing through the state. I figured that there had to be a way for the little business owners to pool their advertising funds and attract customers to their display ads at a price that everyone could afford, and the idea of Welcome to Oklahoma was born!
