Using Membership to Promote Your Business

Low-Cost to No-Cost Ways to Market your Business

through your Membership in the Dunn Chamber

Marketing is a must for a business in today’s market place.  According to Business Experts, Marketing should be considered an investment in your business not an expense.  Repetition is key to marketing as it can take up to 9 times for someone to see your marketing piece before you are remembered.  Are you taking advantage of your marketing benefits as a Chamber Member?  We have several affordable and some free ways for you to promote your business through your membership in the Dunn Area Chamber of Commerce.

Newsletter – Pattern for Progress ($50 to $500)
Provide 600 flyer inserts to DACC for the newsletter month of your choice and we will mail them for you at a cost of less than 18 cents per potential customer – only $100.  These newsletters go out to the “Who’s Who in Business” in the Dunn area and are on the Chamber’s website.  There are advertising opportunities on the inside and outside of the newsletter.

NETWORKING is a BIG benefit that the Chamber offers.  All you have to do is show up and be ready to introduce yourself. (If you would like an Ambassador to introduce you around your first time, just call the Chamber office and we will get you teamed up.)

We have seen many people grow their business successfully through Networking via the Chamber.
