Building an integrated online community for the Clinton area
As part of this on-going project, Jessica has designed & currently manages the websites for the Chamber of Commerce and the City of Clinton, alongside an upgraded version of the actively-maintained Community Calendar. As part of the the growing brand of Clinton & Van Buren County, these have been harnessed into the new HUB Portal, ClintonVBC.com, to serve as a basis to promote local information, events, and attractions, within the community & beyond.
ECT Web Designs has partnered with the Chamber to offer the Passkey Program. Each local business member can receive a unique QR code that is permanently linked to a custom-designed online listing on the searchable, mobile-optimized local directory through the Chamber of Commerce. Visitors can easily access all of a member's online profiles & business info with one easy step.
The Passkey program is included with Chamber membership at no additional cost to participating businesses. This powerful tool can unlock the power of technology to help local businesses streamline their local advertising, while making it simpler to manage their online presence.
By partnering with the regional tourism association, this effort is expanding to include the area's first web-based travel app, Arkansas Adventures (www.goseedoar.org). This project includes social media campaigns, signage & wayfinding programs, local marketing, and the launch of educational programs to equip local businesses and help coordinate communication.
