The City of Toronto website, Toronto.ca, supports businesses by providing information on local programs and services. What’s really cool about their approach is that they’re planning a web redesign and are asking Toronto businesses for input:
“We’re in the process of rebranding the City of Toronto’s website. Our refreshed home page is only a starting point. Tell us what you think of toronto.ca and how we can make the website better for you.”
Asking your market how you can serve them better can never hurt, on or off the Web. It demonstrates you’re genuinely interested in your audiences’ needs, and striving to provide them the best products or services possible.
It appears the City of Toronto has taken a page from Toronto business coaching firm Wardell.
Its founder, Mark Wardell, states: “Leading companies teach their people to question what they do, and why they do it. They challenge their people to take a fresh look at their company and to get involved in creating its future.”
No doubt, the City of Toronto is wisely reaching out in a bid to create a bright future for its business community.
