What is the Partner Portal?
The Partner Portal is an extranet platform that allows local business members to update their business' information, contacts, imagery, amenities, view analytics, and discussion forum. To gain access for your business, you need to be a member of Visit Cook County or the Cook County Chamber.
Why should my business/organization use the Partner Portal?
Any member/partner of Visit Cook County will want to use the Partner Portal in order to maintain control of the text, images, amenities, and promotional details about your business that are displayed on Visit Cook County's website. Anything that is edited under the "Accounts" section of the portal will affect the way it displays on the website.
Additional reasons to use the Portal.
- Keep the contacts updated at your business so you never miss out on Visit Cook County or Chamber opportunities.
- Use the Post Board to ask questions or provide updates to other Cook County businesses in a private chat room.
- Submit upcoming events so they appear with your listing information.
- Order materials from Visit Cook County to hand out to your visitors (i.e. Visitor Guide, maps, or brochures)
- View reports and meeting materials.
- Find individual performance stats from your listing's views and clicks.
And much more!
