Grow your local footprint
Being a Chamber member can positively affect the perceptions of your business, and the views of your customers. Statistics show that 63% of consumers are more likely to purchase from a business that is a chamber of commerce member, and 44% are likely to view those businesses more favorably (Source: American Business Magazine). The reliability and trust your company gains through the chamber of commerce membership will boost your brand credibility and possibly your bottom line.
Brand through the chamber:
- Cultivates credibility for your business
- Provides an access to a wide range of audiences - creating connections with decision-makers in business, government, and your local customers.
- Enhances your public profile by being part of the conversation with the community.
- Broaden your competitive edge with those new connections - bringing value to your organization with new leads and new knowledge about the business community.
- Supports the work of the Chamber to make the Elgin area the best place to live and work.
