Get the most from your Ribbon Cutting!
You can benefit from a Ribbon Cutting even if you don't have a store front location!
Group Ribbon Cuttings are designed with you in mind and are held at the Chamber office. Groups of 3+ members are formed and a welcome party is in the making. You get to network with other new members, their guests, our Ambassadors, and the Chamber Members and Community that attends. Each businesss gets the floor to talk about their business, products, and services. Each business owner gets to cut the ribbon with giant scissors and have their phot published in the newspaper, website, and social media.
Schedule a date with the Chamber.
The community will be invited and the event will be published on our social media outlets and website. We advertise it on the Event Calendar on the Website, publish a Facebook Event and send you a link so you can invite the people that support your dreams. We ask that you keep this date mindful, as we promote this event and encourage people to attend, therefore, it cannot be rescheduled.
The way to a crowd is through their stomach! - Not required but it's always nice to treat your guests to a little snack
If you are hosting a Ribbon Cutting at your location, small finger foods or snack trays will do the job! It's always a good idea to have water on hand. Simple and laid back is the key.If you are a part of a Group Ribbon Cutting, it's even easier. Each person just brings one thing. Check with the Chamber to see what the other members are bringing and what is still needed for your group.
Door Prizes - Again, Not required...just a tip!
Let's face it, door prizes are fun, and we want your party to be fun! We encourage you to use a door prize give-away that is related to your business. Any products that you sell always make for a good door prize...plus, it gets your product in the hand of a new potential returning customer. A gift card promoting your services or products is also a simple, good prize.
Share the Event - Social Media...the best marketing tool!
The Chamber creates a flyer and event page on Facebook. We will email the link to you so you can view, share, and invite your clients, friends, family, and biggest supporters! If you don't have social media you can still email the website link as well. We ask that you combine your efforts with those of the Chamber to help spread the word about your event to ensure a great turnout!
