Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce Will Publish New Community Map
The Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that sales for its upcoming community map are now underway. The 6,000-7,000 maps are on target to print this fall, and will be distributed in and around the Chamber service area.
The full-color, glossy community map will feature a street-level community map showing local points of interest - schools, parks, water features, landmarks, tourist attractions, etc. - and county or regional map(s) showing primary and secondary roads and major points of interest. Depending on space, the community map may also include a concise community profile, which highlights local events; important phone numbers; listings for community organizations, shops and restaurants, entertainment and cultural venues; and information about the Chamber of Commerce to create a useful resource guide for current residents and businesses, as well as a promotional piece for those considering relocation.
Advertising in the Cary community map has unrivaled advantages. The multi-platform advertising bundle goes beyond the traditional print publication to include: a community website, which converts the publication's editorial, pictures and design elements into a digital format; on-the-go wireless access via various web-enabled devices; and the searchable vpMobile.us® Business Directory Portal, featuring the Chamber's entire membership directory, available wirelessly, 24/7. Since 1996, the Village Profile® website has seen over 250,000,000 hits from Internet locales around the world and from all manners of users, and the vpmobile.us site totaled more than 8.4 million hits from 2011-2012. This considerable traffic will prove beneficial to the entire Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce community.
In addition, the Chamber's Village Profile® iPhone and Android App provides the Chamber, its members and advertisers access to their community in one touch, anytime, anywhere, from their handheld Smartphone devices. Downloadable from respective iPhone stores and the Android marketplace, the Village Profile® App is comparable to navigating through www.villageprofile.com, with features including the community publication cover graphic; links to editorial chapters; access to the advertiser directory complete with reciprocal links; one-click, GPS-driven directions to all Chamber advertisers' business locations; including direct dial and direct email capabilities.
This leading-edge, technologically advanced, royalty-generating publishing program is made possible through a partnership between the Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce and Chamber member Village Profile®, and is produced at NO COST to the Chamber.
