By Roy Madden,
Executive Director, Henryetta Chamber of Commerce
Did you know that joining the Chamber of Commerce has a direct influence on your customer base?  This is illustrated in a research study conducted by ‚ÄúThe Schapiro Group."  Per the research, the impact of knowing a business is a Chamber of Commerce member is striking - the likelihood that a consumer will make a purchase soars by 80%. 
This research helps confirm what advocates of chambers of commerce have long believed; when a business is active in its local chamber, it is doing the right thing not only for the community but for its own success as well.  While the Chamber fully realizes that membership alone is not the only key to a business's success; it is a major element in successful businesses.  This is especially true when the business owners become active in community events.  
The following are just some of the findings that resulted from a survey of adults nationwide:  
When consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are more likely to think favorable of it and are more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.
Most consumers view businesses being active in the local chamber of commerce as an effective business strategy and it is more effective for businesses to communicate to consumers that a company uses good business practices and are reputable.
If a company shows that it is involved in its local chamber, consumers are more likely to think that its products/services stack up better against its competition.
Your Henryetta Chamber of Commerce members are active in the community and you'll see them doing their part to support special events, participating in community fund raisers, contributing their resources, and volunteering their talents for the betterment of the Henryetta community. 
Your local chamber members believe in and invest in the community they serve.  If you're doing business in Henryetta, you're encouraged to join the Chamber of Commerce; the benefits are worth it.
