It's time to put your New Year’s Resolutions for your business into action. But how do you get started?
You have been receiving emails from the West Orange Chamber for probably months now and haven’t found the right time or reason to move forward with your membership – until now.
Membership in the WOCC can help you check the following resolutions off your list:
Join a business organization
Networking, marketing, education are reasons why businesses join an organization. There are many business organizations in the area - why not join one that has been recognized as the Best Chamber in the State of Florida in 2009, 2012 and 2015?
Promote your business on a regular basis
Members and other potential customers can find you through the WOCC online Business Directory and 2016 Discover magazine. Connect with others at 100+ networking events. Advertise and sponsor in the bi-weekly e-publication, events or website. Reach out to our thousands of friends and fans through our social media avenues.
Participate in a networking group and/or events
With over 100 networking events throughout the year and 4 Networking Groups who meet on a regular basis, the WOCC can help you build relationships to grow your customer base and business.
Give back to your community
Joining your local Chamber gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the growth and success of your community by supporting its new and long standing businesses.
Be a business mentor or receive business advice from others
Experienced business owners have a wealth of knowledge to help those just starting out. Why not meet at an event or over a cup of coffee to share ideas and suggestions? Each year, our Members are encouraged to write an article for the bi-monthly e-publication about a subject where they are the expert or are passionate about the topic.
Learn something to help advance your business
Several times per year, the Chamber offers classes to help increase your business acumen. Our Members are often the expert presenters in a welcoming and casual atmosphere where questions and feedback are encouraged!
Utilize social media to expand your audience
Be a part of the Chamber’s social media and share information about your specials, events and exciting news. Like and comment on other posts. Write an article for our Linkedin page. Let us retweet your tweets!
Know your prospective customers on a personal level
On the golf course during Golf Networking Group and Golf Classic Tournament. Over a dessert at Best Fest. Trying out a new product at Business Expo. Celebrating excellence at the Big Orange Awards. Over 100 networking events give you the opportunity to expand your business relationships.
Let Chamber experts advocate on your behalf
The Chamber experts take your concerns to Tallahassee to positively affect how you operate your business. We have been successful in making a difference and want to be your voice in the coming year.
Business supporting Business
Always utilize Chamber members when in need of a product or service and they will do the same for your business. Simple as that.
