FOR UPCOMING BUSINESS EVENTS! [Click Here]
A new year, new board members, a new beginning.
Every year, as a business owner, I evaluate my clients’ and my company’s book of business and always come to the same conclusion…we would not exist without our clients, customers and members.
As a Chamber, we are constantly striving to advance commerce for all local businesses. Whether you’re just starting out, or have been in business for 20+ years, the bottom line is that you need more exposure both locally and beyond.
Things have changed in business everywhere. Technology has made it that we can all communicate, network and thrive without boundaries. Thinking local first will keep our neighborhoods safe, clean, and prosperous. However, thinking beyond local means that we can draw business from anywhere in the United States, or even worldwide.
As your new Chamber Board President, my mission will be to help businesses thrive locally with a regional, or even global presence. How will we help you accomplish this?
We have invested in tools that will help you get the exposure you need to thrive.
Here are the steps you must take in order to thrive within as a Chamber member:
Step 1: If you’re not a member yet, click this link to join right now. We accept applications with payment 24/7/365. By the way, if your business does not work 24/7 without you, please let us know, and we’ll see how we can help fix that.
Step 2: Ensure to take a few minutes and complete your full profile on the GMCoC.com website. You should add your company name, logo, contact name, website address, social media channels, phone numbers, email address, awards earned, and anything else that will help educate your prospective customer when they are searching for your product or service. Also include what, if anything sets you apart from the competition.
Step 3: Add any special deals you may be offering. It can be a discount, a free consultation, a free trial, “Discount Tuesdays,” or any type of deal you can create. People are always looking for a deal. They visit our site daily, and when they do, they should see your deal listed so that they can patronize you. While you’re at it, also add any upcoming events, or a help wanted ad for recruiting new employees. We’ll always promote your upcoming events and special deals to everyone on our email list.
All of these tools are already part of your membership, and you’ll get the most out of them when you put them to good use.
Remember, we are here to help you thrive. Whether your business is in Monroe, Harriman, Chester, Florida, or beyond, we want to be your partner in growth.
I look forward to meeting you at our next networking event, workshop, or online networking event.
NEWS…you’ll soon be receiving a survey asking how the Chamber can better assist you in growing your business. Please be on the lookout for it and complete it when you get it.
