Here’s why I take time to come to a Ribbon Cutting even when it’s not mine!
“Sure, ribbon cuttings are a celebration on behalf of new members, but it is also an opportunity to expand my business. Getting to know a fellow member in person, at their business or work environment, is helpful in building a future relationship for business or referrals. Often times the other attendees are members I don’t know so it lets me introduce myself during the event. The Chamber website keeps me up-to-date on events and ribbon cuttings. If you have not used this networking method, I encourage you to attend some when you can.”
Here’s why I put Noontime Networking on my Calendar Every Time.
“I know the Chamber monthly Breakfast Connection is a good networking opportunity but, as a working mom, early mornings can be hectic for me. The bi-monthly Noontime Networking sessions fit my schedule perfectly. I can have lunch, learn about a member’s business, and effectively network all in the course of time I would normally spend just going to lunch. Thanks to the Chamber for serving my needs.”
Here’s why I Sponsor a Chamber Event!
“One of the benefits of being a part of the Heights Chamber is the opportunity to promote and highlight my business in a cost-effective way to fellow members. I have found that sponsoring an event brings with it an additional emphasis on my business and recognition of me and my services. I know that members do business with fellow members and getting them to know me and my capabilities better, leads to future business and referrals.”
Here’s why Chamber Networking brings me Business and Referrals!
“During my 15+ years as a member, I have realized a tremendous level of new business from my fellow members and received referrals that led to new upcoming business. Coming to Chamber events enables me to effectively network, achieve recognition of my tree and landscape services and plant seeds for future business. During the same time, I have purchased numerous products and services from fellow members, and given referrals in kind. My best advice for Chamber success is to be seen, get involved and you will earn the rewards of your membership in many ways.”
