Chamber Web Site a great place to find all star businesses!

October 3rd, 2013

The Anoka Area Chamber of Commerce Benefit of the Week is “Your Business Listing on the Chamber Web Site”. This benefit is one that continues to give day in and day out. As a member of the Chamber you get 2 listings on the Chamber web site. One in a category of your choice and the other alphabetical. The Chamber receives over 350 unique hits a day on the site. A unique hit means that the person goes beyond the home page. We track that and by far the majority go to the Chamber Member listing section and that is exactly where we want them to go. Your listing includes all your basic information along with a link to your web site. We ask that the members put their information on the web site listing and it’s easy. Call the Chamber office and we’ll give you the details. Remember, it’s not a benefit if you don’t use it.

Networking, you want it, the Chamber provides it!

September 26th, 2013

The Anoka Area Chamber of Commerce Benefit of the Week is “Networking!.” This benefit is one of the most important benefits we have. The Chamber’s job is to offer networking opportunities, your job is to take advantage of them. Whether it be attending the AM Connections Networking Group meetings that are held twice a month, the quarterly Wines & Steins Networking events, our Membership Luncheons or any other event that we have, networking is there for the taking. Networking is really not “selling” but rather “telling”. We’ll give you the chance to “tell” and from there the “sell” can happen. Remember, it’s not a benefit if you don’t use it.

Community a very important part of the Anoka Area Chamber mission!

September 13th, 2013

The Anoka Area Chamber of Commerce Benefit of the Week is “Community”. The Anoka Area Chamber is involved heavily in our member communities. Our feeling is that the better our communities, the better the businesses are and the better the Chamber is. We understand this and work hard to do what we can in our communities. Over the years the Chamber has been involved with and/or helped out many different community players. This benefit is one you might not see out front but it is there and always important to the Chamber. Remember, it’s not a benefit if you don’t use it.

Get your name in the BAG!

September 5th, 2013

The Anoka Area Chamber of Commerce Benefit of the Week is your chance to get your name in the “Chamber Ribbon Cutting Bag”. The Anoka Area Chamber does a ton of ribbon cuttings each year at new businesses in our member communities. At the event we give the new business a bag full of items from our members. The items have to have value and not be any paper or coupons. Cozy Cups, pens or pads are just an example of items you can put in those bags. They have your information on them and that is another way we help get your name out there. Just drop off 50 items at the Chamber office and we’ll get them in the bags when we do a ribbon cutting. Remember, it’s not a benefit if you don’t use it.
