SARANAC LAKE - The Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce has launched a new website that provides chamber members with their own pages.
Chamber officials, in a press release, said their new website - www.saranaclake.com - is averaging 14,000 visitors a month. Roughly 11,000 of them are identified as new visitors. When anyone who does an online search for "Saranac Lake," the chamber website is at the top of the list.
The chamber provided the following list of some of the new website's features:
-Every chamber member's Web page has the business' name, address, phone number, URL address, email address and location on a map. Each member is also entitled to a complete description of the business or service, but the member needs to provide that description.
-Chamber staff is willing to help businesses develop effective descriptions. Call the office to make an appointment, or read suggestions at www.saranaclake.com/about/saranac-lake-area-chamber-commerce/member-benefits/web-site-tips.
-A large photo across the top of a chamber member business' page is available for $100 a year. If a business cannot provide one, call the chamber, and staff will try to get a volunteer to take a photo.
-Another option is the "featured listing." For $25 a month, a business can be featured at the top of a list of like businesses. This would primarily be useful for businesses where there are many in the same category, such as dining or lodging.
