New Website Features

Creative Click Media is thrilled to be partnering with the Greater Toms River Chamber of Commerce on an exciting new venture. Through collaboration we have created a new website with the hope that it will become the central hub not only for the business community but for everything Toms River. Our goal for this project is to create a comprehensive and informative website that is extremely user-friendly for not only for Chamber members but for the local community as well. Our new website will enhance your membership allowing you to register for events, make payments, and receive reminders all in one convenient location.  Additionally, an “Expert Tips and Advice” section has been added, where Chamber members can offer business information and advice in their field of expertise.

Welcome to Our New Website!

Over the last several months, I have been secretly creating a wishlist of client-focused amenities I wanted to implement at our site, and fortunately for us, we have a member who was able to read my mind and design a site that achieved each and every one of those goals. It is with great excitement that we announce the release of our new website - brought to you in partnership with the Greater Toms River Chamber of Commerce and Creative Click Media. Some of the functions we wanted our new site to have include: online membership application and renewals (including renewal reminders, invoices, and an annual recurring payment option), customized member database with searchable online membership directory (alphabetical and by industry) complete with map pin and link back to the member’s website, event registration, payment, + reminders, live customer service support, a robust community calendar that allows you to add your own upcoming community events (they’ll be run by the office for approval), new, valuable sponsorship opportunities, newsfeed with member-provided content, #WeAreTR live feed, dedicated tourism resources for the greater Toms River area, and so much more! So check us out.  Peek around.  See how your business can benefit
