Downtown Salisbury, Inc. (DSI) is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of their new website in February 2020. In partnership with City of Salisbury staff, the development and design of the website was completed in-house at no cost.
The website’s development process focused on two primary concerns: mobile-first design and better functionality for residents, visitors and local business/property owners. The new mobile-first design is future forward, taking into account that over 70% of people use their mobile phone to access the internet and those numbers are likely to grow. The updated navigation provides clearly organized content that is easy to access. The public can now add their events to the event calendar for review by DSI staff, and the business listings can be managed directly by the business owners
In addition, DSI’s newsletter articles will be archived on the website and signing up to receive the newsletter emails each month is easy and fast. DSI staff will be constantly updating the website’s content with helpful information, articles, blogs, newsletters, announcements and more.
The website integrated DSI’s new branding with clean, colorful graphics. The main web page features a custom video highlighting downtown Salisbury, which will be updated annually.
We hope you find the new website fresh and modern; we worked hard to make sure it contained valuable information to assist you with your downtown Salisbury, NC needs.
