Do you know a business that is not a Chamber member that could really use promotion? New connections? Development?
Please welcome them to your Chamber for a free brief luncheon on July 13 to show them all the positive things happening with the Chamber. No strings attached.
We are always looking to see new faces and provide new connections.
Wear your Chamber membership proudly as you forward this link or hand them a ticket (available at the Chamber) to these free information sessions. You will be doing them a big favor! Based on a recent national study conducted by the Schapiro Group Chamber membership is valuable way beyond the many direct benefits you receive. This broad-based consumer study uncovered the following findings:
Consumers look at Chamber membership as an indication that your business uses good practices and that you are reputable.
If you are involved in the chamber, consumers are 12% more likely to think your products & services are better than your competitors.
As one example, when consumers know that a restaurant is a member of the chamber they are 40% more likely to eat there in the next few months. For a large restaurant franchise that number climbs to 50%.
When consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber they are 44% more likely to think favorably of it and 63% more likely to purchase goods or services from it in the future.
In the Midwest, the impacts of Chamber membership are significant:
28% increase in favorability
55% increase in consumer awareness
53% increase in local reputation
49% increase in likelihood of future patronage
