Chamber reveals new Web site

The Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce has launched www.OpportunityJacksonville.com. The new onlinejacksonville chamber logo business portal provides businesses across the region with innovative tools and resources to help them succeed.

“OpportunityJacksonville.com is Northeast Florida’s new business center and the best way to find, start and grow a business in this region,” said Wally Lee, president of the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We designed the new Web site after talking to our members and understanding their needs and expectations of a top-tier Chamber. From that research, we’ve created a one-stop shop portal where members can promote and expand their businesses.”

According to Lee, the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce benchmarked leading Chamber Web sites across the country and found that none offered functionality like OpportunityJacksonville.com. It offers a comprehensive list of all Chamber events and allows members to quickly register and pay online. Instead of waiting for tickets in the mail, members will now be able to use their e-mail confirmation as a ticket to a Chamber event.

OpportunityJacksonville.com also features a streamlined process for becoming a new Chamber member, expanded advertising opportunities for its members, and a new Member Spotlight and Member News section. Visitors to the site can explore members’ blogs, use the membership directory to find member information by name, industry or zip code, and discover member Web sites.

“One of the biggest components of OpportunityJacksonville.com is the research mechanism that allows members to find out about other local businesses and the talented workforce in our seven partner counties,” Lee said. “We are also keeping members up-to-date with current regional and national business news with our expanded media section.”

According to Lee, the Chamber is continuing development of OpportunityJacksonville.com to potentially include more enhancements such as an online Chamber store for members to sell products and services to other members across the region.
