August Membership Newsletter from the GACC

Make the Most of Your Membership:
Updating your GACC Online Profile

by: Michelle Newman Brady, 
Marketing Manager at the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce

Being a member of the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce carries with it many benefits - access to local business leaders, monthly networking luncheons, casual and fun networking events, special advertising opportunities - and an online profile on the GACC website granvilleoh.com.

For many residents and visitors, granvilleoh.com is their first stop to search for local service providers - from car repairs to contractors, fitness facilities to hair salons, and even places of interest to show off to visiting family and friends.  Also, the new version of the Granville App is in final stages of development, and it will be populating its business directory from the information you provide in this online profile.  

Are our residents and visitors finding out the most important information about your business when they search on our website?  Find out by following these easy steps:

2) In the top right corner, type in either your business name or a keyword that someone may use to find a business like yours.
3) Did your business name come up in the drop down list?
4) When you click on your business name and the profile comes up, is the information correct?
5) Does your business page include all the information that you would like to have displayed for public consumption?

Chances are, your answers to questions 3, 4, or 5 may be "no."  Good news is, I am here as your resource to change the "no" to YES!  

If you know how to login to your GACC Account (by clicking Member Login at the top right of granvilleoh.com), you can simply login and update your profile on your own.  You can add photos, contact information, social media links - customize your profile as much as you would like.  

If you do not know how to login or would just prefer some one-on-one help updating your profile, please email me at michelle@granvilleoh.com.  I will happily setup some time to have you stop by the chamber (or come to you) to get your profile exactly where you want it. I look forward to hearing from you!

Wednesday, August 24,
