Chamber of Commerce: Coupons help promote business

Print Article

Diane Rogers Guest Opinion

The Chamber would like to remind members and non-members about the Chamber Coupon Book deadline on Friday, Aug. 23.

As some of you know, Shane Florea has taken the task of putting together a coupon book, and I am helping him anyway I can. His goal is to have as many member businesses as possible be in the coupon book. Currently our plan is to print about 200 — up to 500 as needed — and to sell these coupon books for $20 each. The money made will be used to help promote the Chamber member businesses. If you are a non-member we ask that you join the Chamber. It takes a T E A M to make things happen because team means TOGETHER EVERYONE ACHIEVES MORE!

We are asking all who participate to write down their ideas on how they would like their business promoted, as he feels you know what works for you. The books will be sold at different locations.

You can have up to three coupons, and you can set your own restrictions such as only valid certain days, or have an expiration date, etc.

The main goal of offering a coupon is to encourage consumers to go to your business to try your products or service. When customers come to your business, by invitation of a coupon, most likely that customers may end up buying items that carry full profit margin. Coupons are simply a good marketing tool.

Shane has gone to many businesses on his own and then I have helped him on some days with great success. We have several on board already and submitted their coupons with no hesitation and we are happy to announce that many are excited to be part of this and we have many new members who joined Chamber. So if we missed your business it was not our intention, but he does have a business to run, and I have my other duties as Chamber Rep. So get in touch with us as we can get your info via email, text, voice mail, or phone call. (Contact info listed below) and to join chamber. Contact me or just go to our website to join: bonnersferrychamber.org

Remember if you are a member, it’s free to put your coupon(s) in our book. A coupon is a great incentive for customers to visit your business and are likely to buy again — even at full price. Offering a coupon is also a way to give back to your current customers and a great way to meet new customers.

The Chamber currently has two Board Member positions open, so if you would like to nominate someone or yourself, please send us an email as soon as possible.

My goal is to have Chamber grow in many ways and have additional support from our Members. That being said, I am pleased to announce that we are also looking for members who would like to become Chamber Ambassadors. The Ambassadors can assist the Chamber in many ways such as recruiting and retaining members. The Committee of Ambassadors will also participate in ribbon cuttings, grand openings, tours, special events, and it will also give them an opportunity to mentor new businesses and promote their business as well.

Thank you to all the community for your continued support and we look forward to hearing from you.
