What Chamber Membership Does for a Business Externally
Check the data taken from a study, commissioned by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives with support from Small Business Network, Inc. It offers great insight on the ways consumer perception of a business changes with chamber membership.
1. Increase Business Awareness
If respondents know a small business is a member of its local chamber, the business enjoys a 51% increase in consumer awareness.
2. Increase Reputation and Sales
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.
3. Demonstrate Good Business Practices
70% of consumers in the study believe being actively involved in the chamber is an effective strategy for enhancing a business’ reputation and for demonstrating good business practices.
*Data for this study comes from a scientific web-based survey of 2,000 adults nationwide.
