Why Join the Chamber?

Top Three Reasons Small Businesses Join the Chamber

1. VISIBILITY:  In a world loaded with marketing options and information, an investment in the Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber is a simple, inexpensive way for you to increase your local visibility and marketing efforts to develop business relationships that produce more opportunities and sales. To stand out from the competition, smart businesses leverage their resources through the Chamber to give them cutting-edge visibility. Since you and your customers are always on the go, your business is listed in a Business Directory formatted for smart phones. The Chamber offers a wide range of affordable advertising options and sponsorship packages for just about every business or non-profit, regardless of how big or small their budget may be.
 
2. ACCESS:  Unless you’re crazy or like consistent rejection, no one enjoys making cold calls all day long. It’s a painful, tedious process that often wastes far too much time and mentally drains even the most upbeat and friendly person after a while. When you join the Chamber and get actively involved you’ll discover that meeting other business people who may have an interest or who can refer you to key contacts you’re trying to reach, is a huge benefit of membership. From being on committees, serving as an ambassador, or attending specific events where prospects are likely to be, you’ll find yourself in situations where you can identify and meet decision-makers face-to-face versus making cold calls.
 
3. RESOURCES
 
Unless you have the luxury of a training budget or can afford to bring in local, regional or nationally known experts on different topics, there’s no other organization that delivers timely programs at such an affordable price as the Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber of Commerce. By spreading costs among fellow members through registration fees and sponsorships, members can stay updated, informed and educated at a bargain price.
