The end of the year is less than three months away, which means not only will new goals soon be put in place, but it also means any remaining 2017 budget will be going away. Now is the perfect time to be proactive about your 2018 goals by spending 2017 budget on new initiatives that can help you to attain them.
Two of the main goals for chambers involve membership growth and retention. These two goals are becoming more challenging because there are an increasing number of competing initiatives in the marketplace and the demographics of business owners are changing as more Millennials start their own companies.
ChamberLynk, a new mobile application designed for chambers by chamber members and former employees, can help you accomplish your 2018 membership growth and retention goals. Below are just a few features that your members can experience:
With ChamberLynk’s connection feature, members can network with each other long after any event has ended. Members can connect quickly with other individual members as well as with companies. They even can communicate with their connections using a variety of methods.
ChamberLynk enables members to have advertisements right at their fingertips. With over 80 percent of Americans using smart phones nowadays this is a much more effective way than printed directories. You can even open these ads up to the surrounding community and watch business boom for your members!
Events are a critical component of any chamber. With ChamberLynk, members not only can register and pay for events using their smart phones, but also, they can see in advance who is attending. Members can connect online before the event, making networking onsite that much easier.
These are just a few of the many innovative features / benefits ChamberLynk offers members. And, we haven’t even covered all its capabilities that your staff will experience.
Make 2018 your best year yet by spending year-end budget on key initiatives such as ChamberLynk.
Planning ahead + leftover budget = great results!
