The Orillia District Chamber of Commerce

is a voluntary, non-profit association consisting of over 600 members. From this membership a board of fourteen directors is elected, who meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month.

The City of Orillia & Townships of Ramara, Severn, and Oro-Medonte have the opportunity to be represented by appointees to the Board. To further strengthen communication links with other community groups there are appointees on the Board representing Georgian College, Lakehead University, Casino Rama, Doctor Recruitment and Retention, Community Development Corporation, Soldiers' Memorial Hospital, Manufacturers' Association, Construction Association and the Downtown Orillia Management Board.

Google Places May Be As Important As Your Facebook Posts!

The kiosk at the Port of Orillia is now live and the kiosk destined for outside the Orillia Opera House should be live by the end of July.

 

Content will be the same on both kiosks, and I would encourage you to check out both the interface portion and the display advertising on the kiosk currently.

 

The kiosk is programmed to pull and display, at no cost, information about business within a 5 minute and 20 minute walking distance.

 

Ø  In order for business names and details to be displayed from the kiosk the business must be added to google places.  Steps can be found by searching  “how to get on google places

  • If the business does not show within google maps then it needs to be added to google places.

 

For more information on Google Places check out:

It is also important for business to encourage Google Reviews as it engages the customer base and increases your placement in searches.  Google reviews are becoming a very important analytic and your Google Business Account can allow you to provide product information and is not subject to social media likes or friends, but rather available to anyone doing a search.
