Saratoga.com Announces Collaboration With ARCC

SARATOGA NY, November 11, 2008 – Saratoga.com announced this week a new collaboration with the Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce (ARCC) for a new Washington County Guide on Saratoga.com. The ARCC provides exclusive content for this dedicated section. This is one of many new business relationships Saratoga.com has been developing over the past few weeks.
“We realize there is a need for a truly ‘local’ resource online to promote the many extraordinary destinations to visit and things to do in Washington County,” said Todd Shimkus, President and CEO of the ARCC. “The professionals at Mannix Marketing are the leading experts on promoting our region online and driving traffic to local websites, like Saratoga.com. This collaboration is designed to put Washington County in a unique position to capture more attention, visitors, and tourist dollars.”
The new Washington County Guide, located at Saratoga.com/WashingtonCounty, includes event features, activity ideas, business recommendations and other valuable resources for Washington County residents and visitors. Saratoga.com provides an online interface for user interaction, where visitors can read, rate and comment on stories that interest them.
“Washington County is Saratoga County‘s neighbor, so Saratoga.com naturally gets a good mix of traffic from both regions,” said Sara Mannix, Founder and CEO of Mannix Marketing, Inc. “This new guide is our way of saying to Washington County residents, ‘Hey, now we have a whole section of the site that’s tailored just for you!’”
In addition to the ARCC collaboration, Saratoga.com has established business relationships with The Saratoga Show and Johnny Miller Adventures – sections that will be developed over the coming weeks. The company anticipates even more partnerships in the future.
“If Saratoga.com is the go-to source for everything in and around Saratoga, then gaining these business partnerships and collaborations is key,” said Mannix. “And we have every intention of pursuing them vigorously.”
