All Discover Sycamore members are given a profile page on the website.  In a few days all members will receive a letter with their log-in information.  Once you get yours take a few moments to add your logo, a picture and a brief description of what you have to offer.  In case you are like us and enjoy checklists we thought we would provide one  for you!

  1. Check the email address associated with your Discover Sycamore Membership for the letter and Retrieve your login information
  2. Go to the members section of the Discover Sycamore website and click member login (on the right hand side across from the page title)
  3. Enter your information and your into your profile page!
  4. Go under the User Profile section to change your password to something easier to remember
  5. and finally update your business profile!

Our best advice we can give you is compress your picture and logo to web settings before you upload it. You can do this through Microsoft picture manager.

If you would like to see some examples of business that have already updated their profiles check out Hair Productions and Kar-Fre

You can also add Events! Just Like Taxco’s Tequila Dinner!

And like always, if you run into any problems please let us know! We can help you get your profile looking spiffy in no time!

WikiTravel needs you!

Sycamore Illinois is now on Wiki Travel! Many of you are aware of the popular wikipedia website, a free encyclopedia that anyone can edit, but did you know about wiki travel?

Wiki Travel is described on their website as:

Wikitravel is a project to create a free, complete, up-to-date, and reliable worldwide travel guide. So far we have 21,657 destination guides and other articles written and edited by Wikitravellers from around the globe. Check out the Help page to see how you can edit any page right now, or the Project page for more information about Wikitravel and getting involved.

You can check out the Sycamore, Illinois page by clicking here.

You can see we  pupmed Discover Sycamore all over the content but this is a great opportunity for you to add a blurb about your own business or organization! You can see that Carls Fargo and the Straford Inn did a great job of doing this.

You can add your information by doing one of two things:

  1. Click here to make your own username and account.  Then simply go to the Sycamore Illinois page and look for the edit options at each of the sections.  Please be polite and place your information under what is already there, everyone put time into describing what they had to offer.  We will all respect each others information.
  2. Email Megan at MYockey@sycamorechamber.com with exactly what you would like in there about your business and it will be posted in the relevant category.

If you would like to see an example of a good wiki travl site click here.  Get inspired! If you enjoyed doing this create your own page on wikipedia!  If you do create a page on wikipedia, or already have one leave the link to it in a comment on this article so we can all check it out!
