3 STEP PROCESS
The Membership Sales Plan is designed to work with the Chamber Management System from Tiodew and with current Chamber Nation systems. The systems incorporate the technology necessary to launch and easily manage a robust Chamber of Commerce membership recruitment program. The program is unique because it offers members the choice between a passive membership, or an active membership that includes Chamber assistance in helping members to grow their online presence and ultimately their businesses.
LIST MANAGEMENT AND COMMUNICATION AUTOMATION
WE BRING THE "OFFICIAL" TO CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE NATIONWIDE
OFFICIAL PROFESSIONAL NETWORK
The Official Professional Network was created so that communities of businesses can compete online. It enables an organization focused on economic development to monitor and oversee the online optimization requirements for the entire community.
Most organizations that implement this program become the Official Area Network within their communities and are charged with improving commerce.
Business owners concerned about economic growth in their communities want to be part of the Official Area Network. Not being part of this network would mean a business would not be part of the Area Search Engine, Directory, Official Mobile App, and other sites which access the network information.
OFFICIAL PROFESSIONAL APP
The Official Professional App has been created to help businesses compete online. The organization that is focused on economic development can easily maintain a formalized mobile presence for the community.
Business owners within each community want to be sure that they are part of the Official Professional App.
The App is showcased on Apple iTunes for iPhone/iPads; Google Play Marketplace for Android devices; and HTML 5 app for certain Windows, Blackberry, Symbian and new Firefox OS phones.
A vibrant network that showcases local businesses is an invaluable community asset.
OFFICIAL PROFESSIONAL CALENDAR
The Official Professional Calendar was created to help communities easily inter-connect all of their businesses, organizations and events. An advanced central calendar network makes it easy to promote the region through the Official Professional App and the Official Professional Network. Imagine ONE CALENDAR FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY.
The calendar is easily accessed through websites, search engines and mobile applications. A viewer can select the particular organization within that community and see only their events, or look at all community-wide events at the same time. Community event planners love it because they can easily coordinate and plan non-conflicting events.
Calendars and events have a dramatic impact on local economic development. We don't take calendar management lightly; the network eases the burden of coordination.
ARE YOU THE NETWORK? YES YOU ARE!
Many people believe that the Chamber of Commerce might be in trouble. We believe in a nationwide renaissance for Chambers that take online networking strategy seriously.
Change is on the way. Now is the time for your Chamber of Commerce to take the bull by the horns and share a master plan for success with every business in its community.
OPEN UP AND SHARE THE PLAN
It used to be that the Chamber of Commerce was the only place you could go to get local information, mostly by phone or the US mail. Chambers of Commerce have always been busy sharing valuable information about local businesses.
Today, people are gathering local information from the Internet. But what happens when local small businesses simply don't have the necessary information available online?
We can solve that problem and help your Chamber grow all at the same time.
For an area to grow, especially with so much tourism and business commerce moving towards the Internet, it's critical that every community have an Internet marketing coordinator in place.
This coordinator helps ensure each community business and recreational asset is properly documented. A fully documented community will rank more highly on search engines and be successful online.
The ability to monitor how well businesses are set up on the Internet (the community optimization levels) and provide the support that community organizations need to succeed is provided by our team. The coordinator is able to leverage the extensive data within the network to improve commerce and tourism.
The Chamber of Commerce is often the network coordinator.
NETWORK COORDINATOR FEATURES
From helping businesses prosper to rolling out a community-wide syndicated calendar in order to grow visitation and event participation...
Identifying Community Businesses For Membership In The Network
The system may be loaded with ALL LOCAL business contact information. This information may be used by the coordinator for membership sales calls and progress tracking. When a prospect decides to join the Chamber and become part of the network, the prospect record may be converted with a simple click by choosing the correct membership plan.
Inviting Every Business to Benefit by Becoming Part Of The Network
The network promises many benefits to the community and members, but making a proper presentation is critical. The commitment you've made as the community coordinator will mean a lot to the businesses you'll be meeting with. Just knowing that the community has a coordinator, and a technical support team in place will impress prospective members.
Don't forget that the coordinator must believe in the potential of the network and be able to show its success in order for others to do the same and join.
Increasing Follow-up to Enhance Network Participation
The best way to follow up is to run network reports that detail views, search results, and leads passed. Show business owners how the network will generate prospects from the various incoming requests. Then, show how those prospects will be delivered to them through email and tracked within their own leads dashboard.
When talking to prospective members be sure to show them how much they are able to expand their online local advertising. A great way to do this is by using www.CommerceControlPanel.com as your demo site. Another method is to send them a link to www.MemberBrochure.com.
Let prospective members know that if they become part of the network TODAY (join now), you'll be happy to assist them with the login process and connect them to the support team to set up their online network.
Monitoring the Community Broadcasting System's Progress
Coordinators are able to log in to the network in order to study usage, how the public is accessing or searching for products, services, events and other information. The integrated business optimization reporting table will enable the coordinator to confirm the system's progress. The level of network performance is based entirely on member participation, so coordination is critical.
It's important to make sure that the member is connected to the Chamber Nation support center (request optimization) so that the team can get started.
Broadcasting the Leads To Members
Networks built around established membership organizations like Chambers of Commerce, Merchant Groups and other entities are positioned to generate a lot of leads. These leads are like gold when it comes to building membership value and commerce. This network provides significant automation to deliver leads in a professional fashion and then report on those leads in many ways.
This requires that the coordinator is making sure that everyone who uses the Chamber Nation system is using the "send leads to members" tool.
Providing Automated Monthly Network Reports To All Members
Reports on community commerce impress local business owners. The coordinator of the network can provide these valuable reports to members. The updates are not reports on what was sold, but reports on prospects delivered, top search terms, lists of what was requested and not found, and so much more.
The Chamber Nation system has a well-developed, flexible infrastructure in place so that the coordinator can deliver robust reports to every participating business. These reports go out on the first day of every month. They can contain advertising, links to local commerce classes, and a number of data elements that pertain directly to businesses.
Every participating member adds a valuable component to an ever-growing community broadcasting network. By adding everyone into this network, it becomes a powerful way to advertise each business and the community as a whole.
Business owners, event facilities, recreational-related properties and local government all play important roles in helping communities compete for business and tourists as well as in advertising their regions.
The network serves entire communities and contributes to the success of the each member.
MEMBER NETWORK FEATURES
When you become a member you will be connecting your business to the most trusted source for local information...
Becoming a Member
When you become a member of the official area network, your business will be promoted and accessed by people looking for local solutions. Solution seekers include everyone from a tourist locating fun things to do, to a local resident looking for a builder who might replace the deck on a house. Whatever you offer, it's likely to be viewed through this network, which will link you to additional economic opportunities.
The whole purpose of a Chamber of Commerce is to assist the community in building commerce. A chamber is typically the most trusted source for local information and ranks very well on most search engines. For this reason it is important that your business be part of the information network that search engines are accessing.
There has never been a system with so much potential for local member businesses.
This program is different from most Internet solutions where you have to do all the work to get started. The Chamber of Commerce wants to be sure that you are part of the network. The support team, which is provided by Chamber Nation, will be happy to optimize your business for you. Once started, there is a lot of advertising expansion available on the network. As you grow and need further assistance, the free member support center will help you along the way.
