CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS
Becoming a member of the Hollister Chamber of Commerce comes with many benefits that can boost your business. Whether you are a business with no employees or have employees in the thousands, you can enjoy an exceptional return on investment by leveraging your chamber’s marketing, savings, advocacy and networking benefits.
Chamber members will often offer discounts to one another. Is your business having a lunch meeting? Check for discounts with restaurants who are members of your chamber. Need special fliers for an event or sale? A print shop that is a chamber member might offer you a reduced rate.
Group savings add up—sometimes to thousands or more—and chamber members and vendor partners are always adding and improving benefits.
Being a chamber of commerce member makes your business more desirable to customers. When a small business is a chamber of commerce member, consumers are more likely to purchase goods or services from the business in the future. A chamber membership can increase your profits because customers view your business more favorably.
The chamber of commerce might promote your business, especially when you first become a member. Chambers have many marketing venues, including their website, social media, community events, and print advertising. The chamber of commerce likely has a larger following than your business, so any exposure the chamber gives to your business can be beneficial.
A chamber of commerce supports member businesses. It acts as a voice for the common interests of members. You also have the opportunity to get involved in your chamber. You could have the chance to influence your local government on issues that impact small businesses.
When you join the chamber, you can network with other member businesses. By networking, you get to know others in your community, develop partnerships, and support other businesses. If your business is ever in need, you’ll have a community of business owners to turn to for help.
Your chamber of commerce might host professional development events. These events might include training or meeting opportunities. These opportunities help you learn or improve upon skills that are essential to running your business. You can use the professional development events to better your company without breaking your budget.
