Boost Your Image
A national study reveals that membership in a local chamber of commerce can significantly boost a business’s image among consumers, as well as among other businesses. The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta based strategic consulting firm reports: When consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 49% more likely to think favorably of it and 80% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.
If a company shows that it is highly involved in its local chamber (e.g., is a chamber board member), consumers are 10% more likely to think that its products stack up better against its competition. When consumers know that a national restaurant franchise is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 68% more likely to eat at the franchise in the next few months. When consumers know that an insurance company is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 36% more likely to think favorably of the company.
When consumers know that an automobile manufacturing or car dealership is a member of the Chamber of Commerce, they are 21% more likely to have a favorable opinion of that company and 31% more likely to consider purchasing their next car from that company. Chamber membership leads to a 44% increase in sales.
