Increase Your Exposure
Thanks to our new tourism initiative, our website averages around 650 visitors and 1700 page views per month. Our website visitors come from all over the world including countries like Canada, UK, Philippines, France, Italy, and more. Since implementing our new website content marketing strategy, people searching for things to do, where to stay, and places to shop when visiting the Monterey Bay area, end up on our website.
Take advantage of this exposure and traffic by utilizing our new website options below.
Online Business Directory
Our business directory pages are listed in alphabetical order per category, but you will notice that our members are highlighted at the top of the list regardless of alphabetical order, much like for a paid ad in Google’s search results, without the extra expense to you.
Community Events Calendar
One of the benefits of our new community-based website is the Marina Chamber of Commerce Community Events Calendar. The goal of our Community Events Calendar is to give our community members a platform to share their special events with the whole community.
News & Announcements
Do you have some exciting news to share about your business? Do you want to highlight a new employee, change of location, open house, or progress report, or grand opening? You can submit your announcements directly on our website and it will be shared in our weekly Chamber E-News that blasts to over 400+ interested people.
Many local professionals have started submitting community based articles to get their name out there, and to be a help to the community. For example, local realtor, Steve Hunt submits articles that help local homeowners with common issues such as termites, when to sell, and more.
In addition to our new tourism initiatives, the Marina Chamber continues to focus on encouraging residents and businesses to purchase goods and services within Marina city limits, which is good for Marina’s economy and your business! Your association with the Chamber makes a valuable statement about being supportive of local business and Marina’s economic future.
