Event & News Toolz You can Use

Your Chamber’s Events and News are critical to its success. From regular meetings to annual galas, your Events help define and fund your Chamber. The ability to sell tickets, and event sponsorships and allow for easy advance registration are additional critical features. Your News stories are also critical to defining your Chamber and communicating its contributions to your community. You need to be able to easily manage these key features and have them presented in a professional way that reflects positively on your Chamber.

What You Need

For best-in-class Event features, you need to be able to create your own Events; offer both Calendar and List views of Events; sell tickets or require user registration online; provide a unique URL for each event for linking and promotion; and have your Events presented in an attractive, professional interface.

What We Offer

We offer you access and training to create your own Events; provide both Calendar and List views to your site visitors; sell tickets online and require event registration; and proffer architecturally-appropriate recommendations on a single vs. a two-calendar approach.

Your Options

You can advertise your event online and do everything else 'the old way', resulting in: Tedious work of transferring 'guest registration' entries from hard-copy to digital; lower conversion from 'planning to attend' to 'attended'; and a flat, brochure-ware website that does little but indicate that your Chamber exists.

What You Need

For best-in-class News, you need to be able to easily create your own News stories; categorize them for selective display; provide a unique URL for each story for linking and promotion; and have your News presented in an attractive, professional interface.

What We Offer

We can make adding a news article to your site as simple as sending an email; apply Categories and Tags to optimize search and display; and customize your user-facing News page. We even add an outbound RSS Newsfeed to broaden your audience.

Your Options

If you don't write your own Chamber news, it will be written for you--or remain untold. No News or other dynamic, recently-added content leads to a flat, brochure-ware website that gives no reason for a return visit and does little but indicate that your Chamber exists.

What You Need

You need a worry-free, managed marketplace with easy setup for vendors, centralized payment processing, auctions, and local same-day delivery that enables local businesses to compete against Amazon.

What We Offer

Our managed marketplace services include vendor vetting, payment processing options, shipping options, auctions, an intuitive interface for vendors, and a pipeline for local same-day delivery.

Your Options

You can bankroll a custom-built marketplace for $20,000+, or you can leverage our 'plugin and play' architecture, backed by our professional 'green' web hosting to get a locally-controlled custom market.
