Default 10 Ways Your Chamber of Commerce Can Help Your Small Business Grow

I have a quick read article by Rena Klingenberg which gives the advantages of getting involved in your local chamber of commerce for your business.

"Joining your area's Chamber of Commerce can be a smart move for your home business. Because businesses that participate in this group promote each other and work together, your own business can grow and prosper quickly. Here are just a few ways you can benefit by joining your local Chamber of Commerce".

Default Yes but it missed a key point...

Whether you join a chamber or an affiliate of Sales and Marketing Executives International or an association specific to your industry, the only way you'll financial profit from it is if you actively participate on one or more of their committees.

You simply have to do it.

People want to do business with friends and the fastest most non-threatenting way to build relationships and credibity within such civic or professional organizations who to physically help out on committees with other members. They get to know you, like you and either do business with you or refer you.

You can attend all the networking groups you want...nothing will prove more financially successful in the long run than getting your butt on a good committee.

IMHO.

Most of the time it's just a once a month meeting right? It's been years since I've been active in one...
