How do I market my business?

You have taken care of all the components of starting your business: location selection, financing, business plan, staffers, and legal issues. Now all you need is the single most important element -- CUSTOMERS.

While simply opening your doors will bring in the occasional shopper, you will need to take a much more proactive approach to "marketing" your business.  The Chamber itself can be very helpful by providing a variety of "networking" opportunities with other businesses and individuals from throughout the community.

Also, a number of Chamber members offer advertising, promotional, and public relations services designed to help you attract customers. Some are full-service marketing agencies, while others offer specific needs in your marketing mix; design, copywriting, media planning and buying, printing, audio and video production, and other communications tools. See below for a list of member businesses. Search the Chamber's Directory, for member businesses offering these and other services designed to help you find, and keep, customers.
