Joining your local Chamber of Commerce or Neighborhood Association allows you a quick and easy way to connect with fellow business owners and local leaders.
In addition to networking with other local business owners, attending Chamber of Commerce or Neighborhood Association meetings is a great way to find out what’s happening in your neighborhood!
As we mentioned in our article on “5 Easy Ways to Spot Trends,” staying on top of your neighborhood news is an easy way to get ideas on what’s trending and important for your consumers!
You could even go one step further and host a meeting for the group, or offer to cater a meeting if you can’t host! Standing out as an active participant will make an impression on your new friends, and help them keep you in mind if their customers need a certain service or product that they can’t offer!
