Jerseyville teams with marketing firm on destination campaign

The City of Jerseyville along with the Jerseyville Economic Development Council have announced a partnership with Edwardsville-based public relations and marketing firm, Cork Tree Creative Inc., on the development of a destination marketing campaign to help promote the attractions in Jerseyville.

As major economic advancements are continuing to distinguish Jerseyville’s downtown area, the community is primed for business growth, tourism and more, officials said. The destination marketing campaign is set to launch in spring 2022.

Cork Tree Creative’s team of graphic designers and public relations professionals will promote the community as part of an ongoing revitalization campaign.

William Russell, the mayor for the City of Jerseyville, anticipates a bright future for the city.

“I am of course excited to work with Cork Tree Creative on our downtown improvement project. We look forward to our city’s potential and the downtown concept for our business district, with wonderful enhancements planned to benefit our community and its businesses,” said Russell.

The City of Jerseyville’s economic development plan includes the continuation of restoring its walkable business district that comprises 28 blocks of boutiques, restaurants, professional services and more.

Jerseyville will also be the future home of Mid-American International Gateway Business Park, offering significant growth potential to its community and the St. Louis Metropolitan area.

Touted as a community that’s “close to the crowd … but not in it,” Jerseyville will be announcing development plans over the upcoming months.

“The friendliness of its residents, amenities available and forward-thinking nature of Jerseyville’s economic development team is really impressive,” said Jan Carpenter, chief creative officer of Cork Tree Creative. “Over the years, we have worked with other municipalities and it’s always a pleasure to be a part of their success story, sharing in their mission and seeing first-hand what makes their community so unique.”

The City of Jerseyville is located about 35 miles southeast of St. Louis. Visit the city’s website at
