"Iberia Chamber Captures Wider Audience on Web”
NEW IBERIA, LA- The Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the recent launch of its content-rich newly designed website, www.iberiachamber.org, which was established in July 2012. The website is sponsored, in its inaugural year, by Iberia Medical Center, Van Eaton & Romero and Iberia Bank.
With its user-friendly functionality and enhanced navigation,the website now allows businesses, consumers and visitors to quickly obtain the information they need about the Chamber and Chamber member businesses.
Just a few of the new features include "Latest Chamber News”, "Upcoming Events” with online registration, "Member News”, and an online membership affiliation option.
To better market Chamber member businesses, the membership directory, now prominently displayed on the home page of the website, will help give members more exposure, which is a significant benefit, as more consumers and businesses are turning to the web and using local online search options to find reputable businesses.
"This Chamber is consistently looking for ways to improve communication and benefits for its members. I am impressed with the functionality and new features of this website and how it will provide a valuable resource and seamless link between community and local businesses. This is just the latest example of the commitment and dedication the Chamber has to strengthening the business environment of Iberia Parish,” said Mike Armentor, Chairman for the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce.
The "Member News and Offers” section of the website gives Chamber members the opportunity to post/submit company news, press releases, events, special deals, offers and other information about their businesses for the public and community to view.
The Chamber’s Facebook page, linked to the new website, promotes business community networking, delivers referrals and helps showcase members.
"Linking local business to the Chamber’s website is a great way for members to leverage their Chamber membership; as, according to an independent research survey, 82% of the consumers in our region of the country report that affiliation with Chambers’ of Commerce increases their likelihood of doing business with those companies, for both the purchases of goods and services”, said Alaina Hebert, Communications Coordinator for the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce. "We are very excited about our new website. It not only reflects a professional, business oriented organization, but communicates that Iberia Parish is a place for business, industry and community. We encourage the general public and our members to visit the new website frequently.”
