With more splashes of color and a lot more useful information, the Wilton Chamber of Commerce is hoping its newly updated website will provide a greater service to the town\u2019s business community. The Chamber has 200 members, ranging from restaurants in Wilton Center to sporting goods shops on Route 7. The new website, which may be found at wiltonchamber.com, was running on Feb. 13 to get the bugs out. \u201cWe are just working out the bugs right now and are planning to be operational next week,\u201d said Debra Hanson, executive director of the Chamber. She helped develop the updated new website with Chamber member Jack Nash, of Nash Tech. \u201cThis website is designed to be more of a community resource while highlighting and promoting our members,\u201d Hanson said. \u201cIt will feature more dynamic visuals, more community events along with Chamber events, an expanded member directory with individual business pages, and will be more user-friendly.\u201d The Chamber is a nonprofit organization funded by members, events and sponsorships. \u201cWe just wanted to provide enhanced services to our membership and the community,\u201d Hanson said. It\u2019s a new year, and the updated website is not the only new focus at the Wilton Chamber. The Chamber is dedicating the year to promoting businesses in town in such ways as increasing the presence on social media. \u201cOur new directive and focus for 2017 will be to concentrate on and increase our efforts to promote and market member businesses. We have increased our presence on social media and will make regular postings to promote all types of member businesses and services in addition to announcing their updates, news, awards, and special offerings during the year,\u201d Hanson said in an interview in January. The Chamber will work to build its social network with likes and shares, and it will ask members to be more active with this as well. \u201cOur goal is to always add some value for our members,\u201d said Tom Sato, president of the Chamber and owner of Wilton Hardware. Stores downtown get attention because they are in the center of things, but the Chamber wants to help bring more customers to all businesses, even the home-based ones, Sato said. \u201cWe want to get more people to our storefronts and businesses,\u201d he said. \u201cAnd with our new world of social media, help generate traffic for them. Hopefully it works. We try to stay up with the times and generate anything we can.\u201d The Wilton Chamber of Commerce\u2019s statement of purpose is to help all businesses grow, Hanson said. \u201cOur statement of purpose is to help member businesses prosper and grow through many avenues and activities such as producing community and special events that bring customers into our town and allow members to showcase their businesses, referrals, opportunities to network at many events, educational seminars, and more,\u201d Hanson said. \u201cWe will continue to work closely, also, with the local press to gain exposure for our members,\u201d she said.
