Member Pages on the Chamber Website: Every member has a tailored page on our website which includes a logo, contact information, a map link (if desired), 1-2 paragraphs of your marketing message and a couple of photos. Member pages also include a hotlink to their business’ website.
Featured Business/Banner Ad on the Chamber Website: Sign up to be on the “front page” of our Chamber website. Our new “Featured Business” section appears on the upper left hand corner of our home page, as well as appearing in the same key location on subsequent pages when opened, to attract and engage our viewers. This is an excellent opportunity to receive maximum exposure for your business or organization to those visiting our Chamber website.
Our Newsletter is also growing and changing with your feedback.
Distribution via email is approximately once every month, with short blasts in-between. Share your Event, Promotion or Member-to-Member Deal.
Reservation/Booking Service: Many of our visitors, both local and international, ask us to make reservations for lodging and other activities. We can act as a reservation/booking agent, to not only refer guests to your business, but to make sure that they do business with YOU! When your guests/clients make their reservation through our office, you are guaranteed a sale.
Co-op Advertising Opportunities: Take advantage of special co-op advertising prices when you place an ad with the Chamber in The Gorge Magazine, the Columbia River Gorge Magazine, Portland Monthly, and other publications. Members receive discounted rates when they place their ads on our Chamber’s co-op page.
Visitor Center Bulletin Board: Advertise your special events in the shadow-box style, weather-proof bulletin board at the Chamber Office/Visitor Center. You will have 24/7 exposure to a captive audience – people looking for things to do and places to go! Your events/specials are free to post, as a special benefit to our members.
Board Meetings: Members are welcome to attend Board Meetings and are encouraged to participate on the Mt. Adams Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. Typically, board meetings are held the 4th Thursday of the month from 3:30-5:00pm, at the same location as our After Hours Networking Receptions. Check the website calendar for details, or call the Chamber office.
Chamber Ambassador Team: If you like meeting people and attending events, this is the group for you! Ambassadors contact members to inform them of activities/events and encourage their participation. Volunteers attend our Chamber events (Art & Wine Fusion, After Hours, Brown Bag Lunch Workshops, North Shore EXPO, & more) and assist with greeting guests & raffle ticket sales at events. Ambassadors may also help at the Visitor Center, assisting guests with suggestions & directions to local destinations. The opportunities to participate, and have fun, are endless!
Networking Events: Host an Event to bring more exposure to your business/organization:
After Hours Receptions: Typically held on the 4th Thursday of the month at member businesses. These are casual networking events hosted by member businesses (with food, wine & door prizes). These events give our members the opportunity to showcase their business and make new connections within the community.
Brown Bag Lunch Workshop/Forum: Typically held at the White Salmon Library. Topics range from better business practices, (such as SEO optimization, marketing strategies, adding a shopping cart to your website, developing promotional materials) and community education workshops, (health care directives, fire safety in the Gorge, landscape photography).
Ribbon Cuttings and Open Houses: To welcome new members, and to mark special occasions. These are great ways to promote your business, whether you are opening a new business or celebrating a milestone anniversary or remodel. The Chamber markets these special events by inviting The Enterprise for a photo-op, posting the event on our website, newsletter, and Facebook pages, as well as providing signage & balloons to help direct traffic to your business.
We look forward to the opportunity to serve you and help your business thrive!
