Website Wednesday — Chamber of Commerce Site

Written by

Here @ Website Republic, we look at websites all day, every day! And ever so often we come across other peoples websites we like to examine closer.

Today, we focus on a chamber of commerce site we think has been done especially well. Chamber of Commerce sites faces several challenges.

  1. They need to be easy to maintain – there are a lot of activity info that needs to be said.
  2. They need to be easy to navigate for member and non-members – business people always have too little time so presenting easy information is vital.
  3. They should be working on all platforms – a 24hr news cycle / social media means people will check it from computers and mobile devices.
  4. They should convey a strong branding – the visual identity needs to be consist, business like and create easy recognition.

The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber is a prime example of such a well executed website and branding. Kudos and [xyz-ihs snippet=”5-black-stars”]
