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!

In our Wednesday #ChamberChallenges feature on LinkedIn, one of our challenges to chamber of commerce members that pops up from time-to-time is to introduce a fellow business to your chamber reps.

When you sign up for a chamber of commerce membership, you’re presented a menu of benefits that are available to you. Between traditional chamber perks and innovative concepts that may be unique to your specific organization, these benefits are well thought out, have provided value to many, many chamber members before you, and give the chamber team a mechanism to provide value to hundreds or even thousands of companies each year. You should use them.
They don’t call it the “Dog Days of Summer” for nothing.
If you’re a B2B company, I’m guessing you’re like me – torn between wanting the summer to last forever, and avidly waiting for people to get back into town and back to business. Man, my to-do list is filled with things that I’ve taken as far as I can go personally. Only good thing about it is it leaves lots of time for planning!
SANBORN, NY (June 18) – Momentum – The Business Growth Agency president Craig W. Turner and Welke Customs Brokers USA president & CEO Damon Piatek today announced the creation of an exciting new scholarship program designed to connect new small businesses with their regional chamber of commerce. The new program will create sponsored membership opportunities with the Niagara USA Chamber of Commerce.
Recently, I was having an introductory meeting with a large metro chamber of commerce, and the chamber rep opened the conversation by saying to me, “I’ve looked at your web site, and it seems like with what you do, there’s a chance you might talk companies out of spending money with the chamber.”
The question caught me off-guard, because, in fact, the exact opposite is true.
