ROOST efforts for Franklin County

Located in beautiful northern NY, bordered by the foothills of the Adirondacks and the majestic St. Lawrence Seaway, Franklin County is a quiet gem just waiting to be discovered. Tour the beautiful backroads and you will find rolling hills, farm land, sparkling streams, and friendly locals. Franklin County boasts five scenic golf courses including the internationally hailed Malone Golf Club East & West and the Saranac Inn Golf Club. Dozens of campgrounds, Titus Mountain, and many small villages with mom-and-pop shops round out the many amenities found in the larger town of Malone.

 

With the support of County staff, ROOST has helped secure an updated website for the county marketing initiatives. ROOST is currently working on a complete overhaul of navigation and design, copy writing, and content. Now, in its first year in the ROOST lineup, we are establishing benchmarks upon which to compare future work.

LEISURE MARKETING

ROOST is developed a new website for the northern portion of Franklin County in conjunction with the Malone Chamber of Commerce: VisitMalone.com. Paid campaigns help drive traffic to the site, as does the social media profiles maintained by in-house staff: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube channel, and Pinterest board.
