Web team builds Chamber siteFebruary 22, 2012
Thanks to The Center for Rural Development’s Web Department, the Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce now has at its disposal a new interactive, user-friendly website that showcases the city and county’s business community and commercial potential to the rest of the globe.
The redesigned website incorporates the latest social media platforms and new web-based technologies to better inform and educate the business community and Chamber members about all of the programs and offerings available through the local chamber office.
“The Center for Rural Development has been an invaluable tool in the design and implementation of our new website,” said Bobby Clue, executive director of the Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce. “From the outset of the project, The Center’s team took lots of time to meet us and really get an understanding of what we wanted from a revamped site.”
The website, www.somersetpulaskichamber.com, launched in February after months of planning and preparation, and viewing some of the top websites around the nation in order to build a custom website that meets the Chamber’s overall needs.
“The Center’s Web Department made numerous practical suggestions for our website,” Clue said. “I was impressed with their knowledge—not just of the latest web technologies, but on what makes the difference between an attractive website and a well-designed website that delivers a rewarding and engaging user experience.”
New features include a revamped “Business Directory” section, more information about local events, as well as quick and easy access to business stories, and information on how to become involved in the Chamber Ambassador program.
Additionally, the site provides members the advantage of a cutting-edge marketing tool with numerous, enhanced advertising opportunities for local businesses.
