Chamber offers new service for members

Monday, November 17, 2008

The Cherokee Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce another benefit for chamber members.

Currently all chamber members have the opportunity to introduce themselves to any Internet user at no cost to its members. No other Chamber of Commerce in all of northwest Iowa offers its members this searchable feature.

The CCC is compiling a searchable Internet directory of all submitted chamber members and their goods and services.

Building upon the success of the printed directory that the Chamber Board compiled, funded, printed and distributed this past year, now the Chamber Board is requesting the members take just 20 minutes to jot down pertinent information about their business.

* You have until Thursday, Nov. 20 at 5 p.m. to bring your business's information into the Chamber office.

* You will not be called, it is up to each member to bring in the information.

List your information in the following manner:

* Name, address, phone number, city, state, zip code, web address, email, brief description of business, merchandise, brand names, categories and services.

Example: Martha Stewart, Craftsman, Thom McCann; garden supplies: wheelbarrow, spade, rake; kids clothes: winter jacket, stocking caps; woodworking tools: rasp, circular saw, wood plane.

This is not an ecommerce or shopping cart. This will be a searchable database if someone is looking for each individual item. But it will allow you to inform customers what you have and be available for search in the convenience of their home or business, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

This is for all Chamber members, not just sellers of products. This will work for doctors, restaurants, feed suppliers, just for example.

Plus it is a great marketing tool. You will have the ability to submit specials, anointments, etc. in the form of PDF (Portable Document Format, viewable by any computer). This will be very powerful for your business.

If you have any question Contact Mick Samsel, Chairman of the Chamber Searchable Directory and Chamber of Commerce Board Member, at 225-2175 or biz883@mchsi.com.
