Default Chamber of Commerce

My new business cards arrived! Now I'm armed and ready to market! Have any of you tried the Chamber of Commerce? I dropped in a few weeks ago to ask what they might do to help me promote my business, and went ahead with a membership to try it out. Tonight there's a networking mixer. Theme: Hawaiian Luau, and dress code: Hawaiian Shirts. Wish me luck!

Our local chamber I tried years and years ago. I only lasted one year with them because I found they gave special treatment to only those that had store fronts . They didn't really involved home based businesses. It seemed like I was always last to know.

The other issue that I had with our local chamber is that they were run by a woman that owned and lived in a totally different city 15 miles away. I didn't think that it was right that someone that owned a business in a different city should be running "our" city's chamber.

Well, I didn't make it to the Hawaiian shirt mixer because of traffic, but there happened to be another one closer by, which I attended. I exchanged a few cards, got some compliments on my logo/business name, but not much other than that. Good chance to practice my "30-second commercial."

I would figure most of the people there would have some kind of commercial property maintenance needs. Who knows, maybe you will get some calls from it.

Do you think you would do it again?
