Member Marketplace: Sell your product/service to your 5,000 fellow Chamber members
We're all familiar with Groupon and Deal Chicken. Now, the Chamber has its own version of these popular e-commerce sites, exclusively for Chamber members: Member Marketplace. Member Marketplace is the Chamber's online service allowing members to sell their products and services to - and request products and services from -- 5,000 Chamber members and their 350,000+ employees.
Member Marketplace operates on the same premise as Groupon or Deal Chicken, but you're browsing among local offerings of fellow Chamber members - who all share a common mission to keep Cincinnati USA economically strong and vibrant. You keep all proceeds from your offer; the Chamber doesn't receive any revenue. Post as many offers as you like, and control your financial liability by limiting the number of customers who can take advantage of any given offer. Plus, through Member Marketplace, you'll reach decision-makers…200k of whom visit cincinnatichamber.com every year.
"Member Marketplace is a great opportunity for Chamber members to showcase their products or services and build awareness for their company," says Lauren Abel, owner and CEO of Abel Associates Public Relations and Abel Fitness Training. "Through this Chamber benefit, members get to do business with other members who offer products and services they need and get them at a discount. This is a great opportunity for the seller and a great value for the buyer."
