What VALUE Does the Chamber Bring to YOUR Business?

Josh Walker


We have been spending a good amount of time visiting with business owners throughout the community. Some owners are familiar with the chamber, but a lot of them are unsure as to what the chamber can do to help their business succeed and reach their goals.

Here is a sampling of some of the questions that often come up during these meetings:

    What are the benefits of joining the Pleasant Grove-Lindon Chamber?
    How much time is required for membership?
    How much does it cost to be a member of the chamber?
    What’s in it for me?

There are a wide variety of reasons that businesses join the chamber. One business might want help with marketing while another wants to be more involved in the community, and yet another wants to network with other business owners. The list goes on and on.
We recently read a survey that talked about measurable VALUE that chambers provide to businesses. Here is just a small sampling from the survey:
  • Most consumers (59%) think that being active in the local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy overall. It is 29% more effective, however, for communicating to consumers that a company uses good business practices and 26% more effective for communicating that a business is reputable.
  • If a company shows that it is highly involved in its local chamber (e.g., sits on the chamber board), consumers are 12% more likely to think that its products stack up better against its competition.
  • When a consumer thinks that a company’s products stack up better against the competition because the company is highly involved in its local chamber of commerce, it is because he or she infers that the company is trustworthy, involved in the community, and is an industry leader.
  • When consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 44% more likely to think favorably of it and 63% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.

Here at the chamber we are constantly working on ways to bring more value and benefit to the businesses in Lindon and Pleasant Grove. Would you like to know more about what the Pleasant Grove-Lindon Chamber can do for you and your business? Please send us an email or give us a call and we would be happy to discuss how we can help.
