New VisitMinot.org site is designed with both the visitor and lifelong resident in mind

MINOT – Minot’s home on the Internet has a brand new look. The Minot Convention and Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce the launch of its newly designed website, VisitMinot.org.

Besides a cleaner look, the new site is content-rich, mobile-device compatible and allows users to personalize information to fit their interests and travel needs. Chief among the site’s many new features are:

  • My Map: This new, specially-customized function allows users to select items from the categories of Play, Sleep, Dine and Shop to create their own trip agenda. The new website automatically saves this information, thus allowing users to pull up the information when they return to the site.
  • New Mobile Site: Debuting with the new website is an all-new mobile site. Optimized for phone users, this site provides a rapid-fast, quick and easy way to locate venues and gather information about ‘The Magic City’.
  • Personalized Recommendations: The new website will offer content which can be specific to visitors’ needs. This includes recommendations based on where visitors are traveling from, and/or where they currently are, in order to provide for a better Minot experience.

“When we decided to develop a new website, our ultimate goal was to create a site that would be technically functional and user practical,” says Wendy Howe, Minot CVB executive director.

“An important part of any CVB is to not only serve visitors but to also serve residents,” notes Howe. “Many CVB sites are usually just promotional sites. Our new site definitely promotes Minot but it is also designed to serve as an information resource for residents. The community information feature will be continuously updated so residents can use our site as their one-stop shop for all community information.”

To that end, Howe believes the CVB has succeeded, noting that the CVB has already received positive feedback from users. Howe says that this new website is the best the Minot CVB has had yet.

“I know I’m a little biased but I’ve seen hundreds of CVB websites and I think our new site rivals some of the best CVB sites out there.”

The website was designed by KK BOLD; the agency has offices in both Minot and Bismarck.
