New Glarus Chamber Membership
The New Glarus Chamber of Commerce is a membership organization that exists to support the economic welfare of our local business community, promote our area as a tourist destination and to foster community pride and recognition.
Website Listing – Your business will receive a listing in our business directory, with a direct web link to your site. Swisstown.com is the first stop for visitors considering coming to New Glarus, or who are looking for specific types of businesses in our area. In 2018, we had 104,000 unique visitors to the website, with 275,000 page views.
Sale & Event Promotion – Chamber members receive free social media promotion of their sales and events throughout the year. The Chamber Facebook pages have an unpaid reach of over 300,000 people.
Business Training – Gain free or low-cost access to Chamber sponsored educational events, such as social media training, customer service best practices, business photography, etc.
Event Calendar – Chamber members have access to a members-only calendar that list local events and business sales/promotions at one quick glance.
Facebook – Members are welcome to join the Chamber Members Only Facebook page, a place where local offers that are especially of interest to members are posted. This is also a resource for members to easily interact with each other, discuss challenges, and plan for the future.
Constant Contact Email Sharing – Receive a monthly email from the Chamber about what’s happening in the community, what’s coming up, and educational opportunities.
Chamber Bucks Gift Certificates – We encourage people to shop locally. Chamber Bucks may be purchased at the Chamber office and can only be redeemed at member businesses.
Business After Hours – Monthly networking opportunity at featured Chamber Businesses.
Brochure Rack – Free space to display your business brochure, flyer or business card at the chamber office welcome center.
Referrals – We regularly receive phone calls, emails, and in-person visitors each week requesting information about our community. Many of these contacts result in referring our member businesses.
Credibility – A nationwide study by the Shapiro Group found that when consumers know a business is a member of their chamber of commerce, they are 44% more likely to think favorably of it and 63% more likely to purchase goods or services from it.
Being a member of the New Glarus Chamber of Commerce helps us promote New Glarus – bringing people to the area to enjoy our restaurants, shop our stores, stay in our hotels, and have fun at our festivals. Even if your business does not directly sell to visitors, by promoting the area and bringing outside spending to the village, you’re helping ensure that residents here have higher incomes and a better quality of life.
