Zapata Chamber of Commerce Unveils New Website:
Chamber President/CEO Jose F. "Paco" Mendoza, Jr., announced Friday, the unveiling of its new state of the art website. As a result of the positive response from Falcon Lake being named "The No. 1 Bass Fishing Lake in the U.S.", The Chamber needed to develop a more fluid channel of communication with its membership and a comprehensive repository of information for the ever increasing inquires of the region.
The website will allow for immediate updates, easier managing of Chamber records and will be able to generate a newsletter for all registered members. Mendoza said that the new website will also promote with its extended listing of businesses, hotels, restaurants and attractions to help boost the economy of Zapata. "We have reported an increasing demand for information for Falcon Lake as well as for the community, and we wanted to competitively position Zapata with other cities our size and develop a positive economic impact for our area," he explained.
The distribution of the website's content is logical and intuitive. It includes a community calendar available for schools, churches and clubs wishing to post their information and will offer advertising opportunities to its members. It will also serve as a hub of communication with the community through social media like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more.
The site was developed by Graphitiks Advertising Design, Inc. of Laredo.
