Welcome to 2018 with the Richfield Chamber of Commerce! We have some great plans in store for our members this year. Here’s a brief overview of what to expect: Marketing! Marketing is one of the most important components of a successful business. It is also one of the trickiest areas to tackle. Our Chamber members made great strides in marketing last year when we introduced our Community Connections email.
Community Connections introduced you to other Chamber members with the hope that you would reach out to each other and continue the conversation that was started in the email; and it worked! I heard from more members that they were actively engaged with other Chamber members more than they ever had been. The Community Connections email was the ice breaker everyone was looking for, and a great segway into starting your own conversations. In 2018 we would like to take that conversation one step further. The internet has become our go-to resource for finding businesses.
When you are looking for something, how do you go about finding it? You either ask a friend for their personal recommendation (which you can now give because of the community connections you’ve made); Or you read the reviews on-line. The Chamber will be sending you a weekly email, featuring 3 Chamber businesses and an easy link for you to create your google review of them. We encourage you to take 10 minutes, once a week to write a thoughtful review of the businesses that you are familiar with. This is a great way to help your local Chamber members increase their on-line profile by increasing their organic google search results. I am so excited to see all of our members moving forward together! Let’s keep the momentum going!
