When I came to work at the Chamber in June of 2011, the Board of Directors challenged me to develop a new marketing campaign which would jump-start and revitalize Chamber membership. The catch? There were no funds to support the campaign. So I put my thinking cap on, and the “I Know Jo” was born! The idea was: members would invite me to visit and “market” their businesses to me; and I would publish a “review” of their business in the Chamber e-Blast and they would be featured on our web-site. I thought the idea would work for a few weeks, after which the Chamber would move on to another idea. Instead, the campaign took on a life of its own, finding both willing businesses and an eager audience. Who knew?!!?!?!
I love being part of such a successful project! I have met so many interesting people; and I have been able to channel my inner journalist, promoting Chamber businesses to you with words and pictures. People still tell me, all the time, how much they enjoy the articles. And they would like to have all the fun that I am having. Many ask me, “Why can’t I go on an I know Jo?” Thank you all for your support – and – here’s your chance! Enter and win the Chamber contest described below, and you can go with Jo on an “I Know Jo!”
Based on the fact that the Chamber of Commerce is a member-based organization, this contest is all about new memberships! The rules are very simple. Beginning Monday, September 21, 2015 and running through October 16, 2015, the person bringing in the most new memberships to the Chamber of Commerce will win an absolutely fabulous, fun-filled tag-along, going with Jo on an “I Know Jo!” Oh, and did I tell you? The new members you sign up, if they want, will get to go, too! Then you, as well as your new members, will be featured in an “I Know Jo!” article of your own!
Do a mental inventory of your business friends and acquaintances, and ask them to join the Chamber! Let them know one of the first benefits could be a “secret” surprise welcome, guaranteed to be fun!
