Town of Erwin Where our adventure meets your Needs

The town of Erwin was founded in 1876,originally named Ervin after D.J.N. Ervin, after he donated 30 of the 37 acres of land to the county seat. However, in1879 a typo made by the post office changed the name to Erwin. The typo was never corrected and thats how Erwin got its name.

The town of Erwin, also known as “The Valley Beautiful” surrounded by the beautiful mountains and the Nolichucky river. Erwin is a town of history and beauty. Still holding true to its roots, with the clinch field railroad and pottery houses, Erwin has a historical downtown. Erwin also offers great adventures for new guests.

After gathering information we've complied a survey for current community, outsiders perspective, local businesses and others perspective on local businesses.
Just a few questions used for the surveys to determine the local business aspect from a small business owners perspective

Other surveys included questions intended for people who have/havent visited Erwin. What their experiences were or how they heard of The Town of Erwin.

Distribution Methods of Surveys

I have a few different methods for distributing The Town of Erwin Surveys. My first method I would like to utilize Facebook. Facebook blasts, reposts and shares can get a lot of attention and recognition. The Facebook post shouldn’t be sent out until Jan. 2. This is because of Christmas and then new years, everyone will be so busy and caught up with family and shopping the survey will get over looked. Also I would like to use direct mail for the community. I feel that if the mail was sent out the same week as the Facebook post than it will increase chances of being seen and taken.

Along with Facebook and Mail, having a web link and email invitation would also be of good use. My plan is to get out as many surveys as possible using as many outlets to actually get peoples attention.

For Local businesses I would like to send out email links, or direct mail to their company. I feel that email may be the best option, because mail may get thrown away. Similar to Facebook I want them to be sent out the week of January 2. To avoid all the mess and chaos from Christmas shopping and returns.


Where Our Adventure Meets Your Needs

The Theme I have going for Erwin is adventure, and outdoors. To show others that Erwin is a beautiful place to explore and that people should come and share the adventure with loved ones.
