RE: Process to follow to post on Every Friday News

At the Chamber, we strive to facilitate a robust and informative website where information can be found easily. Member's Business Directory  Listing, Events, News, Hot Deals, Job Postings, etc. are all a part of  parkrapids.com.   

Every Friday News (EFN) links to what is active on our website. We do our best to link to upcoming events at least 2 weeks prior to the event date. Because there is limited space available on the newsletter each week, it is important to follow the instructions here when submitting to be added to EFN.
The first step:  Make sure that your submission - to be - is already listed on  parkrapids.com .  This can be done through the Member Portal by either completing a Hot Deal, Job Posting, News Release or Event.
Once you've entered your information through the Member Portal please submit a request for placement to Erin Cox at erin@parkrapids.com  . Keep in mind that space is limited in Every Friday News and not everything can squeeze in every week.
Email your  request for submission to Erin Cox no later than
10 a.m.  on  WEDNESDAY s!

Schedule a  Solo eBlast for your Hot Deal, Job Posting, News Release or Event are available for only $75.  (one per week, by appointment only)
