Hampton Area Chamber of Commerce created a Monday morning e-Newsletter that goes out to over 200 chamber members.  Chamber members submit news, there’s a As Seen On Facebook section, ads are bought by members, and Chamber events are shared – both before and after the event.  What’s the biggest hit of the newsletter?  The pictures taken at events and the As Seen On Facebook section.

The Old Stone House Organization, a non-profit in Franklin County, Iowa uses a blog to share news, pictures and videos.  They raised over $80,000 to help restore the Old Stone House.  The blog gives their out of town supporters a place to see what’s going on and feel like they are a part of the community.
