BROOKLYN CHAMBER LAUNCHES NEW, STATE OF THE ART WEB-SITE Features User-friendly Navigation, Streamlined Design & Heightened Search Engine Optimization

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce the launch of a new, state of the art Web-site. The completely revamped now features user-friendly navigation, streamlined design and heightened search engine optimization, which will result in more unique page views for Chamber members.

Created by WebLink International, an organization specializing in the unique needs of chambers of commerce and associations, the Web-site redesign is accompanied by a complete data transfer to WebLink Membership Management Software. These changes will provide Chamber Members with world-class customer service and direct access to a diverse array of business support services.

The new features seven main navigation drop-down tabs, allowing visitors to quickly locate desired content and information. The Chamber pillars – promotion, support, and advocacy – are also accentuated. Visitors can navigate via these pillars from any page of the Web-site in order to learn about programming based on the Chamber’s vision of fostering a robust business community and a strong economy in Brooklyn. Additionally, heightened SEO function will allow members to receive more unique page views, and result in increased returns from internet searches.

“Today marks a new day in Chamber innovation,” said Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce Chairman Peter Meyer. “With the launch of our new Web-site and database operation the Chamber will reach new levels of excellence in customer service, programming and innovation. This is the start of a new chapter of growth for the Chamber, and we look forward to the exciting adventure ahead.”

The modern design aesthetic is indicative of Brooklyn’s place as a leader in design and the arts. Each primary navigation tab features an image of an iconic Brooklyn landmark including the Downtown Brooklyn skyline, the Wonder Wheel at Coney Island, BAM, Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza.

The homepage features a sweeping twilight photograph of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, with the Brooklyn skyline in the background. The photographer, Andrew Mace, is based in New York City and focuses on cityscapes at twilight and night, typically from above ground level. View his additional work at
