Optimized Your Chamber Membership?
There is More to Just Paying Your Dues -
Improve Your Investment
The Chamber strives to provide their members with the means and opportunities to promote their business, products and services. Membership inherently provides some basic means: Business Directory listing, Chamber Office referrals, announcement & marketing material distribution, etc.
Not every member has the time or the schedule to attend meetings, seminars, and events but there are still numerous member benefits that can affordably and efficiently enable marketing your business but benefits that many members do not take advantage of.
Here are some of the ways in which you can optimize your membership with minimal time, expense and schedule conflicts:
Did you know that under the Business Directory you can have a logo, photo, business description, your name or contact, website URL link, phone # and email address.
Get to know more people in the Chamber and community by participating on a Chamber Committee; it creates a reciprocal result. Many committees require relatively little time and meet seasonally. The committees are a key and necessary element to the Chamber achieving their mission. So, what better way to Network!
Sharing Your Events & Opportunities
The Chamber shares its members event notices and special sales opportunities with its mailing list bi-weekly, or more often when possible. This is a great way to reach hundreds of local customers directly.
Business Directory & Welcome Guides
We maintain a directory listing on our website and provide hardcopies whenever possible. We also provide a Welcome Guide, listing your business or organization, to new residents.
The Newsletter is now distributed quarterly and also available through our website. The Newsletter contains various articles such as description of new member businesses, ribbon cutting events, summary of our Signature (Annual Major) events, info on our established members and general info on informational articles, local activities, etc. As a Chamber member, you can provide a flyer of an upcoming event or promotional in our online distribution.
The Chamber hosts many Ribbon Cuttings for new members but do you have a significant anniversary; e.g., 5 years, 10 or even 25 years to celebrate. We can turn this into a celebration and promote the event along with a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
Events Ad Sheets
The Chamber hosts many community events at which we will distribute Ad Sheet(s) with Event Day specials or merchant offers. Drive event visitors to your business on event day or at least let visitors know who you are and where you are located through the Ad.
These are a great way to promote your business as they generally take prominent placement over the other advertising opportunities described within. At some events it also enables your presence at the event through a table, booth, or simply distributed brochures, promotional items or handouts.
Let us help you. Determine if any of these opportunities can help in promoting your business. Many of these opportunities are included in your membership and some may have nominal fees. There are other programs also available that may be a better fit for what you are trying to accomplish. So contact us to learn more about an opportunity and to get started.
