Research Shows Membership has its Benefits:
A national survey of 2,000 adults, by The Schapiro Group, shows that being active in a local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy because two-thirds of consumers believe that such companies use good business practices, are reputable, care about their customers, and are involved in the community.
The study found consumer perceptions of chamber members to be positive in many ways. For example, when consumers know that a small business is a member of its local chamber,
- they are 49% more likely to think favorably of it and 80% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.
- the business enjoys a 49% increase in its consumer favorability rating, a 73% increase in consumer awareness, a 68% increase in its local reputation, and an 80% increase in the likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future.
The researchers said ”any belief about the chamber of commerce—whether that belief was true or not—could have a significant positive impact on how someone views a member… he or she is more likely to think that the member company’s products stack up well and have a favorable opinion toward the company.”
