Business Planning Assistance and Consultation

It gets overwhelming at times, we get it! We are here to help you succeed. Maybe it's a little extra help in looking at your budget or business plan. Perhaps you have great ideas but need help bringing them to life with distinctive graphics or a more strategic marketing approach. Some just don't have time to update and promote on social media and just need their sites or pages maintained. Whatever it is, we have you covered. Make an appointment with the Chamber President to determine your exact needs. 

Chamber Welcome Center Promotions

Our welcome center in the front of the Chamber office is dedicated to displaying member promotions, business cards, brochure, and marketing material. Members have exclusive promotional sponsorship rights for display cabinets and community bulletin boards. This is extremely advantageous due to the amount of traffic in and out of the office with group ribbon cuttings, meetings, events, and new members to the area looking for referrals. Make sure you have cards or promotional items in the chamber office.

Membership Plaque or Window Cling

Display your Chamber Logo Emblem proudly. It lets your customers and associates know that you support the local business community. Window clings are great to put on the front door of your business or place it on your car window if you are mobile or don't have a place of business. Prefer the traditional wooden and metal plaque with your company name on it reflective of each year you are part of the Chamber? Your choice, it's included in the cost of your membership dues! Want both for a small additional cost? Requests can be made to admin@joshuachamber.com
