Can After Hours help your business?

Business After Hours events are for Chamber members only and are held the third Tuesday of every month. Regarded as the area’s best networking opportunity, these events offer guests the chance to meet people representing products and services in a relaxed, social setting. How can you make the most of these opportunities?

  • DSC04434Wearing a badge or a name tag to an event like this helps familiarize people with your face, your name and your business. Even if they don’t need your business or service immediately, chances are they’ll remember you when they do, just from meeting at After Hours.
  • Other members can introduce you around and act as referrals. Stats show word of mouth marketing is today’s most effective method, so allow our staff and ambassadors to help you meet new potential customers. Then, one day, pay it forward and introduce other new members to your member friends. 
  • DSC04339Membership in the chamber builds trust and confidence in the community. We receive phone calls everyday, “is so and so a member?” If not, they’ll ask us for a business that is. Much of the time, members won’t know if you’re a member unless you’re actively participating and attending events. As some say “you get out what you put in.” 

Remember, people do business with people they know, so come meet and mingle with fellow members. If after hours isn’t your thing, we have breakfast and lunch meetings too! There’s something for everyone!
