Chamber to publish new community guide and membership directory.

The Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that sales for its upcoming community guide and membership directory are now underway. The 3,500 guides are on target to print next summer, and will be distributed in and around the Chamber service area.

The forthcoming Rochester community guide and membership directory will act as an ideal community reference guide with the ability to serve as an informational relocation publication and exceptional Chamber membership recruitment tool. This customized publication will feature a refreshing writing style, coupled with eye-popping design and colorful pictures - grasping the distinct character of the community. In addition to the profile portion, the publication will include a complete Chamber membership directory and/or comprehensive buyer's guide (category listing).

Advertising in the Rochester community guide and membership directory has unrivaled advantages. The multi-platform advertising bundle goes beyond the traditional print publication to include: a community Website and downloadable NewView eBook®, which convert 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® Business Directory Portal, featuring the Chamber's entire membership directory, available wirelessly, 24/7. Since 1996, the Village Profile(R) website has seen over 230,000,000 hits from Internet locales around the world and from all manners of users. This considerable traffic will prove beneficial to the entire Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce community. The site totaled 6,445,900 hits in 2009.

In addition, new in 2010 is a user-friendly Smartphone app--accessible via the iPhone and Android--an extension of Village Profile's enhanced connectivity not offered anywhere else in the Chamber publishing industry. All of these elements come together to offer the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce, participating advertisers and the community valuable added exposure to a global audience.
