Chamber Member Testimonial

"I established a dental practice in Hilliard over 6 years ago, and one of the first things I did was become a Chamber member. It didn’t take long for new business colleagues to become friends and for me to feel very much a part of the community.  Luncheon meetings are informative and networking opportunities numerous. The value of being a Hilliard Chamber member is exceptional." 


— Carole Kelley, DDS - Hilliard Dental Associates


Why Being a Member of the Chamber Makes Good Business Sense

 Recently, The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based strategic consulting firm, released a national survey of 2,000 adults that indicated significant benefits for businesses active in their local Chamber of Commerce.

When a small business is active in a Chamber of Commerce:

  • Consumers are 49% more likely to think favorably of it
     
  • 80% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future
     
  • 73% more aware of the business.
     
  • The business enjoys a bump in its reputation of 68%.

 

Major Impact on Small Businesses
Small businesses represent the largest segment of most local chamber membership rolls, and the study indicates that chamber membership has consistent and powerful benefits for small business members—if consumers are aware that the small business is involved with its local chamber.

Visit and patronize the members of the Hilliard Chamber! If your business is not a member, join us in 2014! We look forward to connecting you with other business leaders in the community and working with our elected leaders to keep a positive business climate in our area.
