I made a bold move today. I joined the Conway (AR) Chamber of Commerce. If you are a resident of Conway and have a business, you might consider joining. These guys do a great job and it is a good way to get exposure.
I think there are many good reasons to join the Chamber, but one thing I like about our Chamber is that they are using social media. Several of the staff tweet often on twitter and they know how to make use of other social media channels such as flickr and Youtube. Last year they even held a Social Media Conference.
It is a great way to get your business some much needed exposure as they list in their newsletter, on their website, and feature you in the member newsletter. They also do “ribbon cuttings.” I participated in one for my church, oneChurch. If you don’t have a marketing team, this is a “no brainer.” If you do, well, you can still benefit.
Thanks to Whitney Farris (@ChamberWhitney) and Jamie Ekenseair (@chamberjamie) who helped me get signed up.
