As a Chamber member, you are automatically receiving the benefits of being listed on the Chamber's business directory at fwchamber.org. Our entire membership database is accessible online - do you know how many referrals to your Web site you are receiving from this directory?
If not, you should certainly check it out! We did a little research and found that for the second quarter of this year, the top ten members who received direct traffic to their Web page from the Chamber's site received an average of 180 direct hits! Of our top 150 members whose business profiles were displayed for the second quarter of 2010, the average number of displays was over 740. And, of the top ten members mapped, the average was 96.
Beckman Lawson LLP was the top member both mapped and displayed for the second quarter of 2010.
"Sometimes it's tough to get your message out in a crowded marketplace. The Chamber Web site is a great way to promote our firm to local businesses, which are the bulk of our clients,” said Matthew Elliott, Managing Partner of Beckman Lawson, LLP. “In challenging economic times, Chamber membership continues to be a great deal. The Web site benefits alone are worth the price of admission.”
So what's the point of all this? The point is that you may be reaping benefits from your Chamber directory listing that you didn't even about! The Web site is a great resource and there are several different ways you can benefit from it. To learn more about this and to see what kind of Web traffic and referrals you are receiving, contact Teresa Royer at (260) 424-1435 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you prefer to fly solo you can also download your own report by logging in at the Chamber’s site and clicking “referral report.”
