Darien Chamber of Commerce Announces the launch of Darien’s First-ever Community Mobile App, LiveDarienCT
The Darien Chamber recognized a need to improve upon its communication resources not only for our local business and members but all Darien residents, connecting the entire community. “Due to the shift in how we receive our daily information, we wanted to develop a mobile app as an improved and additional means of marketing for our members and communications for the town”, said Cheryl Williams, Chairman of the Board, “it will serve as a key platform to sustain our mission and connect the businesses with the residents”. With an improved means of communication, the Live Darien CT app brings the town’s resources together in one place including everything from restaurants, shopping and leisure to local government, recreation, and real estate listings.
The purpose of the Chamber, in essence, is to make Darien an economically and socially healthy and thriving community. The app will host a “EAT/SHOP/PLAY/WORK-LIVE” format, with key features including our Member Directory that offers a listing of reputable, local businesses, establishments and organizations and the Darien Community Calendar, a quick access guide to local events, activities, and promotions. Current real estate listings, town amenities, town resources, job postings, emergency services, and more are all part of the app. Darien Dollars, the new town wide gift certificate program, will now offer gift deliveries and redemptions via text or email on the app.
For businesses, upgraded listings are available and can be customized including direct links to social media, maps, business hours, custom buttons for menu links, push notifications, sale alerts and customer reminders. All with the ability to promote in real time, year-round. Advertising opportunities will also be an option for members.
We are grateful to the Darien Sport Shop for sponsoring the launch. “Being the landmark, corner stone, of Darien, no one better than the Darien Sport Shop to welcome shoppers and new residents to Darien”, said, Kesti Aysseh, Executive Director, “Just as the sport shop is the first store you see driving into Darien, we wanted them to be the first thing people see when they open the app welcoming you here.” Noble House Media Group is simultaneously redesigning the Chamber’s new and improved website and are spearheading the promotional launch of Live Darien CT!
