Momentum has helped guide our expansion into a number of new cities by creating a strategy to use chambers of commerce. Sponsorship marketing works!

An event like Small Business Festival doesn’t come together without someone at the helm who knows all the players and can bring them all together. Momentum made the process so simple, knew exactly who to reach out to, and seamlessly made the first SBF Buffalo a huge success. What an AMAZING EXPERIENCE!
Matthew Pollard Founder, Small Business Festival
Momentum’s strength is understanding the regional business ecosystem to know where time, effort and dollars are best spent to move projects forward.

Networking has changed, hasn’t it?
You feel it, as you’re getting back “out there” to spend time with people.
It seems to be less and less about the cocktail party, and more about a need to target.
“I want to get involved!” – it’s the classic line from members to their chamber of commerce.
But what does it mean?
How do you narrow down what “getting involved” looks like to you, when your chamber has so much going on?
And how does your chamber plug you into the right involvement, when everyone’s interpretation of what “getting involved” means is different?
Does your chamber of commerce have an ambassador program?
As I describe it when I’m at events talking about some of the ambassador programs we work with: “You know, a group of volunteers that help shepherd new members through the programs, services and opportunities the chamber offers?”
Everything is good!
In the chamber of commerce world, we sure are positive people.
It’s important to be that way, right? I mean, we’re into building relationships here, and who wants to be in a relationship with negative people?
