The McMinnville Chamber of Commerce submitted a request for proposal for a new website for their organization. After being selected to create the new site, Metis worked closely with the Chamber to develop a site theme and structure that best fit their vision of how to convey what McMinnville was to visitors, people looking to relocate, as well as businesses. After finalizing a theme Metis went to work bringing the site to life. We worked to develop a site with clear and consistent design that would put the information in the hands of people who wanted it within the shortest amount of time and effort expended to find it.
In addition to creating a great informational site for the Chamber, we developed for them dynamic areas of the site that could be administrated by the office staff themselves, saving them the cost of regular updates that they paid to their former site creator and hosting provider. The dynamic areas include, the calendar of events, the front page sponsor links, and the member resources page with documents available for download. We were also able to integrate the existing business directory from the old site, while adding some additional navigation options that allow visitors to get to the business information they desire even faster. On top of all that we created for the chamber a set of new email contact forms on the site that allow them to get inquiries for information direct from the website, but also broken down by what type of information they are looking for.
The new site has been a big improvement as an information resource for the McMinnville area, and has attracted many inquiries of more information about the city from interested parties.
