The State of Rhode Island is believed to be in negotiations with Tucson, AZ digital agency SimpleView for a redo of VisitRhodeIsland.com following the implosion of its "Cooler & Warmer" campaign earlier this year.
Value of the engagement with SimpleView would be around $258K, as scope is narrower than that of the $5M deal into which the state entered with other agencies in 1Q2016.
SimpleView numbers the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, Visit Anchorage, the Boulder (CO) CVB and the country of Norway among its clients.
Currently the TITLE and META DESCRIPTION tags on the home page of VisitRhodeIsland.com look like this:
<title>Visit Rhode Island :: Welcome :: VisitRhodeIsland.com</title>
<meta name="description" content="Official Rhode Island Tourism Web Site" >
I hope SimpleView will be able to improve on that.
