St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce unveils My Chamber App

The St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce has a new tool to promote Chamber businesses and help individual Chamber members shop local and support other Chamber member businesses wherever they go. “My Chamber App” is a free smart phone application currently available for download on iPhone, Android and Blackberry platforms.

Using GPS technology, the My Chamber App includes a listing of all St. Johns County Chamber members searchable by name or category. The categories cover a host of local businesses including government offices, retail operations, restaurants and places of worships. The application is very easy to navigate. Users can search by category or company name to discover new businesses or find out information about known favorites, including upcoming events or promotions. Results are listed by proximity and sent directly to users, making it possible to view business information, directions and place a call directly to the business.

The St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Old Town Trolley of St. Augustine to promote the application and reach out to visitors and tourists. The company is marketing My Chamber App with signage at the Trolley’s ticket sale locations and in other promotional materials.

The application is currently used by more than 200 participating chambers of commerce across the country. With its GPS-enabled technology, My Chamber App connects to the closest participating chamber, making it possible for members of the St. Johns County Chamber to shop local and support other chamber businesses wherever they are via their mobile devices.

Any company or individual that joins the St. Johns County Chamber is automatically enrolled in My Chamber app free of charge. All St. Johns County Chamber events also are listed on My Chamber App. Chamber members that wish to upgrade their services may do so for an additional fee.

To download the app, visit www.mychamberapp.com or search for the mychamberapp in the Apple Store, Android Market or Blackberry App World. More information about St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce membership is available at www.sjcchamber.com.
