Benefits Of Becoming a Member
The Witbank Chamber Of Commerce & Industry focuses on catalysing economic growth and promoting the ease of doing business for member companies in the community. There are plenty of benefits of joining a chamber of commerce. But perhaps the biggest one is how it changes your business in the eyes of consumers.
A study found that consumers were 49 percent more likely to have a favorable opinion of a business if they know that business is a member of the local chamber of commerce. Membership also impacted consumer awareness by 73 percent and increased the likelihood that consumers would choose those companies to do business with by 80 percent.
Basically, it all comes down to trust, according to study, “When someone is active in their local chamber of commerce, the impression that folks get is that they are trustworthy, they’re leaders in the community and they’re someone that consumers want to do business with.” The idea is that your local chamber of commerce is a trusted entity within your community. So by becoming a member, you get to enjoy some of that trust among your target customers.
