GOOGLE STREET VIEW PROGRAM COMING SOON FOR CORAL SPRINGS REGIONAL CHAMBER MEMBERS
The Coral Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce Teams up with Google Street View Photographers
Coral Springs, Fla (December 20, 2016) -- The Coral Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Google Maps “Street View” trusted photographers have created an official chamber program to bring the popular “Street View” technology INSIDE local business establishments.
This program picks up where the Street View car left off, bringing the high-resolution 360 degree panoramic imaging technology inside business establishments. The imagery is then uploaded into the Google Street View system where they are seamlessly connected together to form a “virtual walking tour” of the business and made accessible from Google Maps and Google Search as part of the businesses’ Google listings. Viewers enjoy the interactive look throughout the business establishments which helps them form their purchase / visiting decisions.
The Coral Springs Regional Chamber joins dozens of other Chambers across the country in partnering with the Google Street View trusted photography team to increase their member businesses visual presence in all things Google.
Whether your goal is to show the beauty, the ambiance, the products, displays, or perhaps just the businesses’ professionalism, leveraging Google Search and Google Maps technology is the best possible way to do that. With Google being the “go-to” source for people finding businesses today, having an affordable way to standout and engage viewers with an interactive tour of your business is extremely effective for attracting new customers.
The Google Street View photographer will be in the area on Tuesday November 1st to capture the imagery inside local businesses. All businesses interested in participating should go to www.coralsprings.seeinsidebusinesses.com to learn more about how to get in on this valuable and unique opportunity.

CHAMBER FOR GOOD PROVIDES ITS SUPPORT TO THE COMMUNITY
Coral Springs Regional Chamber’s ‘Chamber For Good’ strives to Strengthen and Unite Local Businesses
Coral Springs, Fla (December 1, 2016) -- The Coral Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce has launched a community building service called Chamber for Good that will allow local charities to increase their visibility within the community. Chamber For Good works to assist the Chamber to reach out to the many outstanding nonprofits that make a difference in our community by helping them to achieve their goals.
The Chamber for Good tool allows residents of our community to view local charitable needs posted by local charities sorted into three areas: financial, volunteer, and goods and items needed. All local charities that fit the eligibility guidelines have the ability to create a public profile on the Chamber for Good site, then post needs in the three areas as they arise.
The Coral Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce’s next Chamber for Good meeting will explain how small businesses and non-profits can work together to put the spotlight on charitable, not for profit organizations whose objectives are to enhance our community and its citizens. The event will be open to all non-profits and businesses that serve non-profits (not just chamber members).
“This program allows us to connect our residents and businesses and strengthen our community in a way that we haven’t been able to do before”, explained Cindy Brief, President and CEO of the Coral Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce. “Our goal is to help nonprofits raise awareness and money needed. By leveraging the support of our businesses we will be able to make a difference in our community, which is what we always strive for.”
Residents are encouraged to go to the Chamber for Good website and enter their email address toward the bottom of the home page. In doing this they will be notified once per week, by email, of the local needs that exist among the charitable organizations and causes that operate within our community.
