  • Jump Starting the Re-Start

    YES “We are OPEN" 
    Number one, we need to build confidence and get people out of their houses and into local business.  Technology is sure to be an important part of giving consumers the confidence to return to work and resume normal activity such as visiting shops, cafes and restaurants. This cultural shift toward mobile technology is now more than ever (Post COVID 19). If the goal of your chamber is to reach out to, inform and retain members, then it’s critical to develop a mobile engagement strategy.  Convert members from passive or casual observers into advocates for your chamber. The Chamber can easily broadcast important announcements and empower small business owners to make local marketing simple and affordable.
