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.

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?
I’ve been toying with some language lately that I like – the idea of thinking about your chamber of commerce membership as a subscription.
Doesn’t matter what kind of subscription you compare it to.
Could be as simple as a magazine subscription. Software subscription. Cheese of the month.
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?
