Chamber of Commerce a powerful marketing tool for businesses


Debating an Oswego Area Chamber of Commerce membership?

Ask the more than 60 businesses and organizations who have joined so far in 2018 how it has benefitted them.

Currently, the Chamber boasts more than 500 members spanning 22 communities around the Oswego area.

And they, along with the roughly 65 organizations who signed on this year, “have made a decision to not just network but to create and build relationships in the business community,” said Oswego Area Chamber of Commerce Director Angie Hibben.

Ultimately, people choose to do business with people they like, know and trust, as well as refer those businesses to others, she said.

“And joining a chamber gives a business the opportunity to have other people and businesses get to know them, like them and trust them,” said Hibben.

She is excited to see the Oswego Area Chamber of Commerce roster continue to grow.

Just some of the businesses who joined this year include Fruitful Yield, Charley Co. Boxing Club, Paramount Theatre, Melissa Jean Boutique, Chicago Pizza Authority, Oswego Brewing Co., Fox Valley Veterans Breakfast Club, The Peach Ring, and the Kendall County Historical Society.

“Congratulations to all the new members for joining and making a decision to help promote their business,” Hibben said.

Their involvement allows the Oswego Area Chamber of Commerce to help them build brand awareness and visibility, she added.

“The chamber should be thought of as another marketing tool to promote members,” Hibben said. “We will gladly post business specials, new products, and events on our social media feeds, or as a member, you can post directly to our chamber page. This free feature helps people connect to your business and know that you are an active member of the community.”

Let the Oswego Area Chamber of Commerce be a marketing tool for your organization today.
