Co-Mo Connect Launches 360-Degree Video and VR Tour As People and Businesses Rethink Their Location

Immersive Technology and Digital Marketing by Golden Shovel Agency Makes Sophisticated Outreach Possible for Small Missouri Communities

    SUNRISE BEACH, MO, February 08, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Golden Shovel Agency has launched a 360-degree Familiarization (FAM) Tour for Co-Mo Connect. When delivered with Virtual Reality goggles, viewers feel like they have really visited the communities featured in the video, and the result is that Co-Mo Connect's message about the quality of life in mid-Missouri sticks.

"What caught my attention when Golden Shovel rolled out PlaceVR was that if offered us an opportunity to promote various special places we have in rural America to people who want to invest or relocate but don't have time to travel here," said Corey ten Bensel, Director of Member Care for Co-Mo Connect. "Now we can get the attention of people from anywhere in the world, and they can experience and understand what we have to offer with virtual reality."

Launching the video when people and corporations are rethinking their location is very timely. Because of COVID-19 and events of the past year, rural America has gained fresh appeal for businesses and remote workers who want to space the high costs and congestion of large metro areas.

"It's been great to work with the people at Co-Mo Connect. They have a vision for development in their community and they're pushing it forward by being innovative," said Aaron Brossoit, CEO of Golden Shovel Agency.

Co-Mo Connect is partnering with Golden Shovel Agency on a series of four videos, and the creation and implementation of a sophisticated marketing strategy.

"What Golden Shovel brings to the table with their VR technology and a full suite of marketing services allows us to leverage a really unique talent set," said ten Bensel. "We're excited and we think it's going to be very effective."
