If you’ve driven through the downtown area lately, I’m sure you’ve noticed that over the last decade the area has experienced a major facelift. Down Cherokee and Oak street you see vintage lamp posts, several businesses have removed the yellow metal siding that once covered the original brick and have also installed awnings to cover the entrances to their businesses. In the library lawn sits a multi-colored horse containing the 14 flags that have claimed ownership of the Sallisaw area. The sidewalk on Oak Street has been re-paved and lined with brick pavers. These improvements have come courtesy of the Sallisaw Main Street organization.
Sallisaw Main Street is an organization of concerned business leaders who are committed to the revitalization of Downtown Sallisaw! While they have already done lot’s for the city, they are far from finished with their mission in downtown Sallisaw.
This summer, Margaret Perry and the board of the Sallisaw Main Street organization reached out to Megaphone Promotions about a new website. After briefly visiting with the board it was clear that they were frustrated with the different solutions that they had tried in the past. They expressed that most of the time their site wasn’t even up and that they were quite embarrassed when people asked them about their online presence. They let us know that they were ready to have a real functional website that worked and one that they could be proud of.
The new site which can be found at https://sallisawmainstreet.org was launched in August of 2017. The site features custom design that is beautiful, content rich and fully responsive. It features a fully interactive map of all of Sallisaw Main Street’s partners making it easy to contact any of it’s 26 member businesses. It is also equipped with a fully functional event calendar. This is no google calendar that has been pasted into the site. The color scheme of the calendar is styled to match the color scheme of the site. Contestants and Vendors can easily go to the Event page that they wish to sign up for and register and pay online. Their registry forms are dynamic forms that adapt to the type of registrant that is filling out the online form.
The board of Sallisaw Main Street absolutely loved their new site stating, “we are so thrilled to have this great, attractive site to call our own.” We are thankful to Sallisaw Main Street for choosing Megaphone and can’t wait to see what’s on the horizon for this great organization. If you are a vendor in or near the Sallisaw Area be sure to visit their events pages where you can sign up to have a booth at one of their upcoming events.
