Click to connect on new Chamber web site
The newly designed Chamber website has a fresh look to complement the 2010 directory and map.
“The all-new Nacogdoches.org has been overhauled from front to back,” said Michele Peck of Point A Media. “An entirely new content management system makes the site easy to update by chamber staff, and will improve referral results for chamber members. The new site also increases chamber member referrals through search engine optimization.” The site’s membership directory includes a search feature for finding Chamber members by name or category. Each member has a place on the site with contact information including a link to take viewers directly to the member’s web site. Site visitors who subscribe to the chamber’s free RSS feeds will receive updated news and registration information delivered directly to their desktops, PDAs or phones. “Members should contact the chamber for details about a 2010 members-only Web badge to post on their business and personal Web sites,” Peck said. “Nacogdoches.org also offers advertising exclusively to chamber members.”
