New website launches at CVB

CLINTON — The Clinton Convention and Visitors Bureau has officially launch its newly redesigned website at www.clintoniowatourism.com.

Through a donation from the Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Institute class of 2012-13, the CVB has worked with MicroNet, Inc. of Nisswa, Minn., to create the new site.

The primary audience for the website will be visitors to the area; the new site has information for lodging, dining, shopping and suggested itineraries for travelers. There are updated photos and new functionality on the site.

CVB Director Carrie Donaire said the the organizations is pleased with the new functionality.

“It is an upgrade from the old site, and we believe it will further engage our visitors,” Donaire said. “We especially hope that local organizations utilize the community calendar, which will quickly become the ‘go to’ place to find out what special events are going on in the community.”

The calendar is an interactive, web-based program that enables the community to post, view and search for events of broad interest to the community. The calendar is a tool for the public to promote community events and activities. It’s specifically designed to house information about special events and public meetings.

Events on the calendar should announce one-time or special events for programs, not regularly scheduled activities. The calendar will be used to promote educational, social, cultural or recreational events in the Clinton area that are open to the general public sponsored by non-profit civic, social, charitable, fraternal or educational organizations.

“We reach out to potential visitors through many different channels, such as Twitter, Facebook and via print and online advertisement,” Donaire said. “It is our hope that the new website will complement all of the other information we publish about visiting the Clinton area. We are moving to a more integrated marketing effort and the website is an important channel for us to share information.”
