The Value of Joining Your Chamber

Did you know that joining the Chamber of Commerce has a direct influence on your customer base?  This is illustrated in a research study conducted by “The Schapiro Group.”  Per the research, the impact of knowing a business is a Chamber of Commerce member is striking - the likelihood that a consumer will make a purchase soars by 80%. 

This research helps confirm what advocates of c c logochambers of commerce have long believed; when a business is active in its local chamber, it is doing the right thing not only for the community but for its own success as well. 

While the Chamber fully realizes that membership alone is not the only key to a business’s success; it is a major element in successful businesses.  This is especially true when the business owners become active in community events. 

The following are some of the findings that resulted from a survey of adults nationwide: 

  • When consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are more likely to think favorable of it and more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.
  • Most consumers think that being active in the local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy overall and it is more effective for businesses to communicate to consumers that a company uses good business practices and are reputable.
  • If a company shows that it is highly involved in its local chamber, consumers are more likely to think that its products/services stack up better against its competition.
  • When a consumer thinks that a business’s products stack up better against the competition because it is highly involved in the local chamber of commerce, it is because the consumer infers that the company is trustworthy, involved in the community, and is a business leader.
