if all of your "new" members are RECEIVING advanced member services, and you would like to offer the same to existing members, here is an example of what you might say.
If you are an existing member who have noticed that new members are receiving additional marketing services, that is because new members are paying a one-time onboarding and technology fee of $49.95 (which you were not charged in the past).
Would you like the same services explained at www.MembershipPublishingSystem.com? Just let us know at the Chamber and we will invoice you a one-time fee of $49.95 and then get you started.
If you have any other questions please let us know as well.

We've heard reports of antivirus software or a school or office firewall preventing some features from displaying properly. If you have antivirus software installed, try temporarily disabling it and then logging in. You may also need to check with the person in charge of the network firewall (if you are accessing your Weebly site from a school or office) in order to do this. If this works, you'll need to add Weebly to the software's "safe" or "accepted" list. Just in case they need it, our IP ranges are:

We are excited to re-launch a Daily Deals program designed to help drive traffic into our local businesses! It is the perfect time to create or share what specials your business is running as it's just in time for the start of holiday shopping. The Chamber is going to run an ads in print and on social media directing potential visitors to a special landing page on our site. This landing page (which currently looks like this) is where your deals will appear, promoting your locals special or any other deal that your business may be offering. Discounted services, discounts on food, specials on drinks, discounts on merchandise, etc are all examples of what you can load here.
Here is what we need from you:
- Logo or image and text of what you'd like to use in your coupon (along with the details) or if you already have an internet ready image of your deal we can use that.
- Your deal must have an expiration date of 12/31/2018 and no earlier. Your specific deal can change no more than monthly.
- "Mention this" verbiage details so when potential customers come in you can track where the deal is coming from. For example, you can request customers to mention 'chamber deal' in order to receive the coupon pricing.
- The best number to receive a text message. (optional)

How to find the direct link so people can leave google reviews on your member businesses - it was impossible before this trick!
- get the business's place ID from google (visit https://developers.google.com/places/place-id and enter the business name, grab the place ID number that's displayed)
- add the place ID to the end of this URL: https://search.google.com/local/writereview?placeid=
If it’s been a while since you’ve innovated in your business, now might be the time to consider a facelift.
Many business owners embrace tradition and refuse to yield. That worked for Blockbuster, too. But seriously, no one stopped watching movies. They just changed the way they did it. The same may be true of your business. To keep from closing your doors, you need to watch for trends. Here are a few that may influence how you think about your business.
Three Not- So -New Trends That Are Shaping Today ’ s Businesses
But for most of the boxes, you don’t know what’s coming in them until they arrive (or you see an early opener on YouTube). The boxes always boast a value of more than you pay for the subscription service.
Why it works: it surprises and delights recipients. Often it streamlines something they need or want and offers an attractive entry price. Many box services use word of mouth and offer discount codes to influencers in their target market like mommy bloggers or YouTube beauty experts.
They pay their contractors a portion or charge them a fee to be listed on their site. Some of them cover the contractors under an insurance policy to ensure the property is protected but the contractor is in charge of their own maintenance, production, and other critical components.
Another idea that’s similar is how direct marketing companies work. They make the product and then have an army of contractors sell it for them. Each contractor runs their operation as a mini business adhering to the manufacturer’s rules for selling and they receive a commission when they move product.
Why it works: fewer start-up costs to hamper growth.
Reshaping a mission
Why this works: a study has found that young people (especially) are willing to pay more for a product that supports a good cause.
If it’s been a while since you rethought your business strategy, it might be time to open yourself up to some of the newer trends out there. These ideas won’t work for every business so consider your offerings and your target market before making any big decisions. However, you might just find that these ideas get you thinking about one that’s an even better fit for your operation.
