 Website Advertising Program:

 It is important for the Chamber to continuously keep up with the times and technology.  We are making sure we interconnect our website, newsletter and social media so we can provide our members with up to the minute information and a great amount of exposure and promotion.

 Our major sponsors will be given advertising space on our home page with links to their individual websites as part of their sponsorship package.

  All other advertising will be set up on the Chamber Visitor Info Page, Business Info Page, and Chamber Info Page, with 5 slots dedicated on each page. Slots will be added as needed and as demand grows.

  The following fees are suggested:

  $50 per month for a minimum of three (3) months                      $150

  Save $50 on six (6) months                                                      $250

 Save $75 on nine (9) months                                                     $375

 Save $100 on twelve (12) months                                               $500

 Internally, we are driving visitors to our website in every possible way we can.  Since Oct 24, 2011, the hits to our website are averaging nearly 1000 per month and increasing.  Another key statistic is when people visit our sight, 89% are staying on our site for up to 10 minutes. These visits have generated 11,500 page views.

 Now that we have made our website a priority, we will continue to enhance it, direct people to it and add features.  We will be adding QR codes to all our advertising and events that will take people directly to specific locations on our site.

 We encourage you to take advantage of our advertising campaign and help make our website bigger and better.  It’s another way for the Chamber to promote our business members.

 Newsletter Advertising:

 As the Chamber grows, so does our Newsletter.  Currently, we have an email list of over 1000 individuals.  Our Newsletter is sent directly via email and is also posted on our website, facebook and twitter.  The Chamber Newsletter provides current information on all the different events and issues in which the Chamber is involved.  It provides a look back at the most recent networking events such as Business After Hours, Ribbon Cuttings and Educational Workshops. And it lets you know well in advance of coming events that you should attend.  Wouldn’t you like to take advantage of reaching new customers and networking with colleagues?
