Downtown Maryville has partnered with North Star on a research initiative for marketing the area to visitors, residents and businesses in the year 2022 and beyond. According to North Star CEO Will Ketchum, at the heart of Downtown Maryville’s message should be its competitive differentiator -- in other words, what makes the community special so it can stand out in the marketplace. And one of the best places to find that figurative
nugget of marketing gold is in the hearts and minds of the people who call Maryville home.
Toward this end, North Star developed a customized Community-wide Online Survey. The questionnaire has been carefully crafted to determine Downtown Maryville’s and Maryville’s strengths, weaknesses, challenges and opportunities. All who live and/or work in Maryville are invited and encouraged to participate in this important community-wide initiative. The survey can be found at www.BrandingMaryville.com. Surveys can be completed online and submitted electronically. Printed surveys will also be available at The Blount County Library and in the lobby of the Municipal building. Surveys are available in English and Spanish and must be completed and submitted by February 28.
“We have partnered with more than 250 communities across North America, and I can’t emphasize enough the importance of insights gleaned from community members,” stressed Ketchum. Greg McClain, City Manager added, “We want to hear from everyone in Maryville about what makes our community special. It is important for us to celebrate what we love about our community and share that with others.”
