“I love being an entrepreneur but flying solo can be a daunting experience so I joined GBCC. Everyone I met on the Staff and Executive Team was sincerely committed to the mission of serving members’ professional interests by providing opportunities for networking, skill-building, and business development. I checked any remaining hesitations at the door and embraced the positive, inclusive attitude. Trust & communication are the foundation for a good relationship. I’m confident my membership will be part of my plan.”
“The GBCC has been instrumental in helping us spread the word about our brand new Workbar at Staples Danvers coworking space. From hosting our ribbon cutting to participation at all the major events, John and his team have been a major asset in our marketing arsenal and a pleasure to work with. We are looking forward to even more involvement in the future.”
“We love being part of the Greater Beverly Chamber of Commerce. The events” and mixers are great, we love meeting new people. The Chamber staff are efficient, friendly and helpful. Not only do they answer our questions quickly, they refer other members to us all the time. WE even do work for the Chamber. Being a Chamber member is a win all the way around. I recommend being a member to all my clients. It’s the best advertising we do, and the biggest bang for your $.”
“Since joining the Chamber in 2009, I have seen a great increase in my business. Not only has it helped in my sales, but I have met many other local professionals who I now network and do business with. It is one of the best things I have done for my business.”
“Although we are new to the Greater Beverly Chamber of Commerce, our experience with the Chamber Leadership and member base has revealed how important it is to the growth of our club. We have always been committed to the local communities and through this organization we have the ability to strengthen and expand our community involvement for years to come.”
“I would like to write and thank ALL OF YOU for the amazing Business Expo last week at the North Shore Music Theatre. I have attended many expos and the GBCC Business Expo is by far THE BEST hands down. It was a great event, clearly well planned and I had FUN while connecting with dozens of area business leaders. I am now aware of what a great chamber I have become involved in, and I am so very grateful.”
“Greater Beverly Chamber has made such a huge impact on our small business – we’ve been around for about 7 years and just recently relocated, and since joining the chamber we’ve met so many people through connections within the group! They’ve helped us gain new catering clients and every day customers, and they’ve been extremely supportive in helping us get the word out of our move to the Cummings Center. Best thing we ever did, becoming members of the Chamber of Commerce!”
The “Coffee with the Coach”, sessions provide an opportunity to exchange ideas with the attendees as well as discussing a topic of interest. These sessions are a wonderful way to start your week for success.
My first month as a member of the Chamber I signed 3 new annual clients for marketing coaching services from chamber members. Five years later, the Chamber continues to be one of the best investments I have made for my company, Purple Diamond. The key is to be active in the organization, attend as many events as possible and follow-up with the members you meet and connect with them on various Social Media Marketing platforms.
I have been a member for many years, and have met my biggest and best clients through my association with the Chamber. I got these clients by “showing up” at as many events as possible, and always presenting myself in a positive, professional manner. I never expect to get business from attending a single event, but the cumulative effect of attending as many events as possible has been a large factor in the growth of my business over the years. The Chamber has been a wonderful resource for me, and I encourage all members to attend as many events as possible. It works.
