Chamber Business Tips #1

Chamber Business Tips #1

Know Your “Why”
If the market your business is in is especially saturated, what is it that makes customers come to you? You can (and should) strive to make it your unbeatable prices and great customer service—but what’s the something that really sets you apart from others?
Your “why”.
Why you do what you do is the thing that will have your customers invested in you. Make your “why” part of your marketing strategy and you’ll develop relationships with customers that keep them coming back.

One of the simplest, yet effective ways to have your potential customers learn this is by getting out in the community and introducing yourself. Make people know your name – associated with your business of course – and they will feel more connected to you. By feeling like they know you in some way, they will choose you first almost every time.
Some examples of ways you can make this happen:
– Volunteer in your community
– Get involved in business leads groups
– Host booths and pop-up markets
– Host community events at your business
Challenge yourself to always introduce yourself along with your business and title, and freely share with people your passion for what you do. Not only will your business grow as a result, but you will also find yourself making personal connections along the way.

Halloween Fright Walk

Halloween Fright Walk

It was a very exciting Halloween this year with putting together our first ever Winterville Chamber Fright Walk. We have such a wonderful downtown area, so being able to utilize this space in a way that brings together the community and draws attention to these businesses brings a lot of joy! We had many Chamber businesses come out to host booths, the Town brought together various departments to pass out candy, and a great time was had by everyone involved!
One of my favorite things we put together was a beautiful raffle basket that so many of our businesses donated to. I was blown away by the amount of support we received for this, and can’t thank you all enough for your help. A big thanks to Beacon Dental, Chick-fil-A of Winterville, E & S Hemp Company, Edward Jones-Financial Advisor: Joe Chrobak, First Citizens Bank of Winterville, Full Service Flooring, Local Oak Brewing Co., McCabe’s Costumes, Nauti Dog Brewing Co., PostalAnnex, Nephew Wally presents Uncle Dave’s Kettle Korn, and Winterville Flower Shop for your donations!
We also hosted a contest for the most well-decorated pumpkin. Competitors brought their decorated pumpkins from home and one lucky winner took home a gift basket from Moore’s Olde Tyme BBQ in Winterville!
