Used to Promote the Most Scenic and Livable in Northeastern Oregon to Remote Workers

    LITTLE FALLS, MN, July 15, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — If you were going to travel to every corner of Harney County, – the 9th biggest county of the United States – your journey could take several days, but now you can get a taste for all this rugged beautiful area has to offer with a new 360-degree familiarization (FAM) tour launched by Trail Electric Cooperative.

The video, produced by Golden Shovel Agency, is intended to boost the county’s visibility with site selectors, investors, and potential visitors, giving them a vision of what modern frontier life looks like through virtual reality goggles. Now that the COVID-19 pandemic has made remote working an option for more people, there’s an even bigger audience for their message about the quality of life that is available in Northeastern .

“We knew that modern audiences use video to learn and research their decisions. By choosing 360-degree video and virtual reality to deliver our message, we’re also preparing for the future when virtual reality will be commonplace in homes and offices,” said Lea Gettle, Manager of Administration and Strategic Services for Trail Electric Cooperative (OTEC).

Golden Shovel Agency’s provides viewers with an encounter that is the next best thing to being there. Experiencing the 360-degree video with virtual reality goggles stimulates the same brain activity that a person would have if they were really in a new place. The result is that the information in the video is remembered and the viewer is open to taking another action, such as booking an in-person visit.

“Harney County is one of the most in the West, but it’s also quite remote. By promoting their opportunities and livability with 360-degree video and virtual reality, they can reach more people on a national or even an international level,” said Aaron Brossoit, CEO of Golden Shovel Agency.

Trail Electric Cooperative partnered with numerous Harney County businesses and organizations to create the video.
