You have options when it comes to advertising and promoting your business through the Richmond Chamber. Take advantage of Business-to-Business advertising as well as Business-to-Consumer advertising with the options below. Get the best bang for your buck here!
Options for All Member Levels
1. “Featured Members” Quarterly Online Ads
Every quarter the Chamber offers all of their members the opportunity to place their business ad on the Chamber website that will link directly back to your own website. These Featured Members ads appear in the left column of the site and randomly change between ads as the page is refreshed.
We limit the number of ads visible in each space to only five, so there is plenty of opportunity for your ad to be shown. On average, visitors to the Chamber’s website browse for over 3 minutes each! That’s quite a bit of time for your ad to be displayed.
Each quarter runs for three months and costs only $300. That’s only $100 per month! Download the Ad Specifications for your design team, or contact us to design your ad at no extra cost. Because the spaces are limited, they tend to fill up fast. Reserve your space and the quarter you prefer by contacting us today!
Q1: January – March
Q2: April – June
Q3: July – September
Q4: October – December
2. Printed Member Mailing Labels
Sending out a promotional mailing? Why not add the Richmond Chamber Members to that list for free. Although we do not give this list out electronically, we can provide you with a set of printed mailing labels that would add approximately 700 more contacts to your promotional pieces being mailed. Please request the labels at least 48 hours in advance. Request by calling the office at 510-234-3512 or sending an email.
3. Networking Event Sponsorships
As you know, the Chamber puts on many networking events throughout the year in order to provide opportunities for our members to meet one another and show their business’ potential, face-to-face. We, at the Chamber, firmly believe that when you are involved and present at networking events, your business will become more recognized in the community and will positively benefit from that.
Some of the annual events and sponsorship opportunities include the Valentine’s Crab Feed Fundraiser, Super Mixer, Business Expo, Economic Summit Conference and Home Front Festival. By sponsoring one or more of these events, your business will receive various levels of promotion as a result. Some sponsor levels include recognition in local and county-wide news and press, getting your logo on all the marketing materials, banners and signs, and receiving free tables or tickets at the event. These are only some of the benefits available and will vary depending on the event and level of sponsorship.
Be sure to double check your membership benefits to see what sponsorship opportunities may be included in your membership benefit package. If you have questions or need more information on the current available sponsorship opportunities, contact us today.
Options for Promoting Business Level Members and Above
1. Think Local First! Email Campaign
One of the options of being at the Promoting Business Level and above is to take part in our Think Local First! email campaign. This campaign features only one email per day, featuring only one member’s advertisement, sent out to over 5,500 emails including our members, local business owners, and local residents. Your business can send up to SIX (6) of these emails every year of membership! When you renew, so does your six emails, so be sure to use them throughout the year. Click here to view our most recent Think Local First emails.
Those members who are at a lower level of membership are accustom to paying $100 per email for this same advertising. But because you are at the Promoting Business Level or above, it’s free and offered as part of your benefit package. Contact us ahead of time to schedule to reserve your email days. Remember, we only send one per day, so they fill up fast. Contact us today!
