The Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce Web site launches a fresh-for-2010 look to complement the 2010 directory and map, on Tuesday, Jan. 19.
“The all-new Nacogdoches.org has been overhauled from front to back,” said Dana Britton, 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.”
Developed to serve as a resource for the community, visitors, businesses and chamber members, Nacogdoches.org includes a community events calendar, registration details for chamber sponsored events and information for businesses and individuals interested in visiting, moving or retiring to Nacogdoches. “In addition to the online membership directory and chamber member tools, Nacogdoches.org hosts the most comprehensive community calendar for our area,” said Michele Peck, Point A Media. According to Peck the chamber Web site’s calendar is worth 30 seconds of viewing for every person, every day. “If you’re involved in planning an event, the very first item on your ‘to do list’ should be checking the chamber’s event calendar for conflicts,” Peck said.
Retirees, new residents, new students and prospective businesses can also find information about Nacogdoches attractions, making a move, schools and the county’s largest employers online in one convenient location. 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 someone directly to a 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.”
The Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1920 to serve the community and to create an environment where business can take place. In addition to ribbon cutting and groundbreaking events introducing new businesses to the community, the chamber offers seminars and networking opportunities for existing businesses, raises money to provide academic scholarships to area youth, and serves as a resource for Nacogdoches visitors and newcomers.
