Networking Tips #4: What’s Next?

Now you’re getting into the swing of things, making new contacts and beginning to build relationships within your business community by attending networking events. You realize that it will take time for people to get to know and trust you, but in the meantime perhaps you aren’t sure that others understand what your business is all about or perhaps you have a time-limited special offer you want people to know about. Perfect! Why not take advantage of some of the other benefits that are yours as an Auburn Chamber member?

For starters there’s the monthly Member Spotlight right here on our Auburn Chamber website.  Your Chamber has made it as easy as possible for you to take advantage of this FREE advertising. Simply click on the Member tab, choose Spotlight submission form from the drop-down menu, fill it out and click “Submit”. What could be easier? Well, option # 2 IS even easier for our members. Since everyone is busy and our schedules fill up fast, the Auburn Chamber will be happy to send someone out to interview you and write up your Spotlight submission for you. Please contact _______________ to set up an interview.

The second great FREE opportunity to let other Auburn Chamber members know about your business and special promotions is to reserve a Showcase table at one of the Chamber’s networking breakfast events. Please contact Virginia Parent at to make your reservation. This works well for businesses providing either merchandise or services.

There are two other ways to promote your business at the Auburn Chamber’s networking breakfast programs. For a modest fee of $50.00 you can become the Coffee Sponsor with your business name and logo in front of the coffee table and the opportunity to leave take-away materials for the members on the other tables. The Business Spotlight (not to be confused with the Member Spotlight on the Chamber website!) is also $50.00 for three minutes at the podium to address the assembled members and guests, and to leave business materials on the tables.

Please remember to check back for future posts detailing the benefits our Auburn Chamber members receive as affiliate members of the Worcester Regional Chamber and other opportunities to promote your business while giving back to the local community.
