As a business owner, determining where to invest your marketing dollars is one of the most important decisions you can make. To receive the best return on your investment, you must consider all your options.
While some may not look at a Chamber of Commerce as a traditional marketing medium, if used properly, it could be one of the best investments you ever make to build your business.
The Chamber of Commerce of Cape Coral not only serves as an advocate for business with local and state government but provides support, communication, exposure, networking and business training opportunities to its members.
“Get In & Get Busy” is not just a tagline, but a way of life to our Chamber. We encourage all our members to embrace that philosophy to see the best results for your investment. Face to face networking is invaluable in building your business. As a chamber, we work hard to provide as many opportunities as possible to our members. Each month we host four regular networking events that include our Business Card Exchange, General Membership Lunch, Networking at Noon and our Business After Hours. These give our members the opportunity to meet literally hundreds of prospects each month.
We support the symbiotic relationship between business and community as both are equally dependent on each other for their success. Through our two welcome centers, we greet more than 35,000 visitors each year. We also maintain a website that receives more than 2.5 million referrals per year through our online membership directory.
Community involvement speaks volumes to consumers when building your business. We bring the community together through our special events like the Cape Coral Farmers Market, Surfside Sunset Market, Holiday Festival of Lights, Freedom 5K, Taste of The Cape and the Excellence in Education Awards. Through those popular events, our members can participate in and foster that sense of community, which speaks not only strongly but well of those members.
We facilitate one of the finest Leadership programs in the State of Florida that includes Jr. Leadership, Leadership Cape Coral, Advanced Leadership and the Community Trustee Program.
We do all this through the generosity of our members and the business community.
At the core of the Chamber is a team of dedicated staff members and volunteers. At its foundation is a Board of Directors. This board includes some of the most successful businesspeople, entrepreneurs, marketing experts and community leaders in the state. As a Cape Chamber member, you have all these resources at work for you every day.
