Jackson, Miss.—Y’all Business, the Secretary of State’s one-of-a-kind online resource for free Mississippi economic development information, relaunches today with new information and features including a mobile interface making it easier to access the site on a cell phone.
“Mississippi’s future is in small- to medium-sized businesses. Y’all Business was designed to provide the information this target demographic needs — at no cost to the user — to choose to invest in Mississippi,” Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said.
Much of the information previously on the site, such as registered businesses and school rankings, has been updated.
The relaunch of Y’all Business includes a mobile interface, which is also the product of feedback on the site. The interface allows users to access Y’all Business information easily from a cell phone or other mobile device.
Additionally, now users can select one of eight business “groups,” which automatically populates the Y’all Business map with information relevant to a particular type of business. For example, a user interested in opening a restaurant can select the restaurant group, which would populate the map with information about nearby competitor restaurants, median household income, and area traffic counts, among other information.
Y’all Business has garnered more than 109,000 pageviews since its inception in October 2015. More than 11,300 free business summary, retail market, and other reports have been downloaded from the site. Y’all Business was developed in partnership with The Geospatial Group, a Mississippi company.
