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!"
