The Twentynine Palms Chamber of Commerce needed to redesign their existing website to provide chamber members and other local businesses with easier access to the information they provide.  The website would need to be easily updatable by non-technical chamber staff.  The site needed to have information about tourism in the Twentynine Palms area, as well as an easily accessible member directory.


The site underwent extensive information architecture to reorganize the chamber's information into a much more user-friendly format.  Drop down menus were added to allow access to any page of the website in just one or two clicks.  The menu also served as a sitemap to information available on the chamber site.  A Content Management System was implemented to allow non-technical chamber staff to easily update the site on their own with no technical training.  Text could be added or changed, pictures or files uploaded, or new pages added to the site with a few clicks of the mouse.  A secure, private Intranet was created to allow staff to upload and link to confidential information. An opt-in mailing list was created for monthly notifications or other special announcements. Online maps were added to assist users in locating important sites in the area.

The chambers new website increases the organizations visibility and marketability to businesses in the area.  It improves the chambers ability to communicate with it's membership, as well as providing valuable information about tourism in and around the Twentynine Palms area.  The Intranet allows staff access to a private, secure area for viewing confidential information.  The new Content Management System has allowed the chamber to provide much more timely information to their membership and the public.

What our client says:
"On behalf of the Twentynine Palms Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank Shark Studios for the excellent work with the development of our new website.

With the help of Content Management, we are able to keep up with the “minute by minute” time sensitive information that we must provide to our membership and area visitors.  With flare and sophistication. Content Management provides a highly viable option for any business looking to extend its web performance.

While I was not sure what to expect at the beginning of the project, the outcome far exceeds my expectations. I have realized that it is a both a business and marketing tool that allows the Chamber to develop and measure website activities accordingly. We have had enthusiastic feedback from our users on the improved functionality and ease of use on the site.

I recommend Shark Studios web design and Content Management to any client who wants a professional website designed and hosted by a company which delivers!"
