What’s in it for me?
Any prudent business owner wants to know the answer to the above question, so here are some significant facts to ensure you’re making and informed decision, one that we trust will satisfy your ROI (Return of Investment).
Establishes Trust, Authority & Professionalism
Being a member establishes a sense of authority, professionalism and a business in good standing within the community. According to a 2012 study conducted by the Schapiro Group, 49% of consumers were more likely to think favorably of a local business if it was a member of the local Chamber— and 80% were more likely to purchase a product or service from a Chamber member!
Publicity boost: Your business increases exposure in online and offline formats. i.e. Our website, Facebook and Twitter social media platforms are available to all members to feature their business and special promotions. Just email your promotional material to the office.
Exclusive Advertising Opportunities
Members have opportunities to exclusive advertising, networking options that provide additional exposure for their companies. Visit our pages “Member Spotlight“, “Member to Member Discounts” and “Promotional Videos” for examples.
Direct Marketing Achieving Referrals
You have the opportunity to directly market to other business owners who may require your services/products. You will have the advantage to directly contact or visit the person in charge instead of throwing darts in the dark hoping to reach someone with buying power. Also keep in mind that chambers refer their members’ products and services over non-members’, which means that you’ll also gain referral opportunities as a paying member.
In other words, it’s a powerful referral generator!
Measurable Networking Connections
Networking Connections: Getting face to face time with other professionals equals measurable profits because people do business with people they know! Don’t forget the barter system, if you are in need of a service or business advice why not exchange your expertise/products &/or services!
A Chamber of Commerce is a group that’s dedicated to providing networking and connecting opportunities to the local business community. The primary goal? To create platforms for business owners to network and connect with each other and the community!
So the Facts are in! Now the question is, “Can you afford to miss out on these opportunities?”
