Get the info and skills you need


The Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce is happy to offer our members opportunities to learn and grow. In 2021, we held two successful summits and expect to continue this in 2022. Please view past sessions, below. These trainings, talks, and summits are free to attend but registration is required. If you'd like more information on how to get involved, please email us at  info@watkinsglanchamber.com or call us at 607-535-4300. We look forward to hearing from you!

 

Monthly Training:

Make the most of the Chamber's website

The Chamber's website hosted nearly 11,000 visitors in July alone. Is your organization's listing represented the way you want it? Is EVERY event you host on the site? Attend a training session, and we'll give you all the info you need to leverage the power of the Chamber's website, which includes positive rankings by search engines. Search engines trust sites that aggregate content (like the Chamber's site), because it is an added layer of verification. Organizations that appear on a site that aggregates content have gone through a certain level of scrutiny. Search engines know this and reward the site that aggregates content with higher rankings. Also, search engines look for legitimate backlinks. Our site links back to our member's websites and our backlinks are considered legitimate. You need a website: it's your best marketing tool. And, you want to be represented on the Chamber's site with a link back to your site. Every month, we run through the steps to make this happen. 

These sessions are held the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 10 am to 11 am over Zoom. Registration is required by the Monday before the training.

To register, please select the date you'd like to attend below:
