Carrizozo Works’ Marketing Plan:


The Carrizozo Works, Inc. marketing plan supports the Town of Carrizozo LEDA and interfaces with the economic development ordinance voted by the Town Council of Carrizozo. The purpose of this plan is to increase the community’s understanding of the resources our community has and can offer within the community and regionally to new residents and businesses; to build awareness of Carrizozo Works, Inc. and to promote Carrizozo and the surrounding area as an ideal place to expand, locate or relocate a business.

Through a comprehensive marketing plan, Carrizozo Works anticipates it will attract businesses to Carrizozo while maintaining the current business atmosphere in the town. Also it is anticipated that awareness of Carrizozo as a community will be raised throughout the state and country.
