Though communities may continue to get smaller as years pass by, they can de- velop solutions to attract new residents and thrive. The first step in the process is to find out why people move to or leave a community. Communities can conduct their own research. Simple surveys distributed to new residents can provide a wealth of information. Another tactic is to bring small groups of new residents together and ask questions about their relocation process, such as "How did you find this community?Was it what you expected? What One thing helped make your move easier?" Answers to these basic questions can help the com- munities better market themselves to potential new residents When people are looking to relo- cate, they 0fteli get thefirst impression of the communityt0ugh atcal web- Sitel Families oh'en lookfat different community sitesto try :and::find One that fits their wants and needs. By doing a quick Search online, families wanting to relocate can see which com- munities look like a good match and which ones don't. Unfortunately, many community sites don't give enough information or the right kind of infor- mation to potential new residents. It is important for:rural Nebraska communities to get noticed and not bypassed in this initial screening pro- cess. The way to avoid being over- looked is to find out what information potential new residents want and by having a marketing strategy that incor- porates these wants. If people do find relevant location information and they like what they see, they will be more likely to search further to find out more about the community. There is potential for rural commu- nities in Nebraska to become' more involved as they work together on marketing not only their individual community, but their regmn. Families looking torelocate value good schools, a nice downtown or Main Street feel, good community infrastructure and an agricultural base. The challenge for Nebraskans may be to do a better job of letting potential residents know the good communities are in rural Ne- braska.
