Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce

Completed: December 11, 2013

The Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce is an organization within the business community promoting and supporting responsible commerce through effective advocacy, communication, networking and education on behalf of its membership.

The Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce is hundreds strong, with more businesses joining every day. We offer valuable members-only benefits, including member-to-member discounts, Business Listings, Event Promotion, and more.

Eggplant Studios has helped add to the Member Services of the Chamber by designing a new, forward thinking website.

This new fully featured WordPress website has several key features:

  1. Member Access – Allows members to login and edit their profiles, business listings, post events, post jobs to the job board, post member-to-member coupons and more!
  2. Business Listings – Members each get their own editable business listing, which can be upgraded for a small fee. Listings include a description, social media embeds, slideshows, logos, contact details, and maps. Each day, a new business is selected as the Featured Businesses, and receives a huge boost in exposure.
  3. Event Management – Members, or staff, can post events to the calendar. Also available is an Event Widget using a custom API, allowing embeddable event calendars for other websites.
  4. Member to Member Coupons – Members can post coupons, which can be redeemed by other members. You can set a value, or service, and limit the redemptions by date or quantity. Once redeemed both parties receive a unique Coupon ID to help track.
  5. Advertising Ready – Eggplant had installed and configured an advanced Ad Management plugin.
  6. Job Board – A member only job board, where members can post positions.
  7. Mobile Friendly – Allows dynamic resizing per the users viewport.

Working with Eggplant Studios was and is an absolute pleasure. Our committee decided to upgrade our website to make the site more valuable to our membership and useful for our visitors and with Shawn’s incredible work and patience we achieved our goal. Once the committee selected Eggplant to re-build our site, we found Shawn to be easy to work with he added his own creativity to our ideas, responded quickly to changes and assisted with training our membership. The Marketing committee of CVCC is very pleased with our new website and the ongoing customer service that we receive from Shawn at Eggplant Studios. We received more than what we paid for and work recommend Eggplant Studios to anyone wishing to build or upgrade a website.
