Paul Koenig of The Kennebec Journal in Maine reports that the state’s chamber of commerce has signed a deal with a website, JustGOODNews.BIZ, to report good business news about Maine.
Koenig writes, “The company, JustGOODNews.BIZ, publishes a mix of stores from local and state organizations like the state chamber, as well as summaries of stories pulled from media outlets such as newspapers and TV stations.
“The partnership means the Maine State Chamber of Commerce will feature a feed of Maine-based stories on its website and will contribute news to JustGOODNews.BIZ, according to Kris Rush, founder and CEO of the company.
“Rush launched the Oklahoma City-based company in May after running a similar program at the State Chamber of Oklahoma, where her husband was president for more than 20 years.
“She said she started the company to spread positive business news about local communities to a wider audience.
“Connors said an example of the positive news the state chamber wants to publicize is that J.S. McCarthy Printers recently hired 80 full-time seasonal workers for its upcoming greeting card season, more than double the usual 35 workers it hires for the season.”
