Increased Community Visibility​

Increased Community Visibility​

We all know that referrals are an important aspect of business growth.  “Word of Mouth” advertising from a trusted source is invaluable to businesses. The Chamber of Commerce refers only Chamber member businesses.

Annual Chamber Membership Directory and Community Profile Guide – A four-color printed guide to member companies and community information and 5,500 are distributed throughout the county during the year.  Directories are distributed through hotels, medical facilities, library systems, banks, credit unions, etc.

Website Presence – Our members are promoted
through the membership directory on our website by company name and by business

Business card and brochure display – at the Chamber office.  These items are distributed to walk-in guests looking for business information, other Chamber members and inserted in relocation packets for new residents

Website Calendar of Events  – Lapeer is a vibrant
and active community.  We utilize our community calendar to share events
with our residents and to attract visitors to Lapeer.  We share our member
events and community events with the community through our community calendar.

New and Renewing Members are announced on our social
media pages, featured on our website and in our newsletter. 

Social Media – We utilize the growing
popularity of social media to promote our members, events, and Chamber news.

Vendor based Community events – Our annual Lapeer Days Festival and our annual Spring Expo are a great way for members to gain visibility in the community with a vendor booth.  The annual festival is a three day event hosting an estimated 130k visitors and the Spring Expo hosts an average 15k – 2k guests.

Ribbon Cuttings and Grand Opening events – Chamber staff will assist you in planning  your grand opening events and ribbon cuttings.  We promote these events to other members and to the community through our social media pages.  We invite the local newspaper to be there to cover the event and it is published in the local paper.
