Quick question: What’s the first thing that goes through your mind when your membership or sponsorship renewal from your business association lands on your desk?
We hope that it’s, “Let’s get this paid right away. We get so many leads and new business out of this that re-upping is a no-brainer!”
Sadly, though, that’s probably not your reaction. LEARN MORE ---->
Momentum has helped guide our expansion into a number of new cities by creating a strategy to use chambers of commerce. Sponsorship marketing works!
Damon Piatek President & CEO, Welke Customs Brokers USA
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!

Momentum’s strength is understanding the regional business ecosystem to know where time, effort and dollars are best spent to move projects forward.

We talk a lot in the blog and on the IT’S ALL ABOUT WHO YOU KNOW Podcast about our strong belief that spending marketing dollars with chambers of commerce is a smart investment.
We believe it so much, in fact, that we built Momentum’s entire business model around the concept.
Someone at a chamber of commerce event asks you, “Who can I introduce you to?” What a great way to start building a relationship. But… Do you have a good answer?
Making the switch from a paper business card to a digital business card takes some finesse.

“Chamber of Commerce Membership Prep for 2022” was far and away Momentum’s top blog post of the last year.
For a number of reasons, it’s time for an update.
Let’s face it – the last few years small business has kinda been a punching bag when it comes to policy.
If you’re a small business owner, you felt it.
Kids are headed back to school. Temperatures are starting to come down. Football’s kicking off. And your chamber of commerce has stocked its calendar with a full slate of events.
The fall season is here.
Not to put too fine a point on it, we’ve now got three months of full-steam-ahead business growth opportunity before people start to disappear for the holidays.
And it goes by fast. Too fast.
So, how are you going to use your chamber of commerce membership to make the most out of it?
