Top Ten Reasons Your Chamber of Commerce Should Get Linked In

An update to a quick conversation I started on Linking Chambers of Commerce, 2 years ago. The original conversation is here:


As a follow up to my earlier message in convincing your chamber of commerce to get Linkedin, I put together the list below. While this is a super-quick list put together in 20 minutes or so, I'd appreciate your feedback and any improvements you may wish to make.

Top Ten Reasons Your Chamber of Commerce Should Get Linkedin

Linkedin is like adding fiber to your chamber's diet:

1. Amplification of current members - Help your members interact with Linkedin's 200 Million business users

2. Worldwide reach - Does your community need to improve its reach with another country? Linkedin has members from over 100 countries.

3. Industry drill downs - Does your community need to strengthen its industries? Get linked in to the industries you need for your community

4. Assisted promotions - Get fellow chamber members to help introduce you to the right people all around the world right from where you are.

5. Accelerated introductions - The world is shrinking - competition is growing - your members need to meet people faster. Linkedin helps you accelerate your networking.

6. Enhance your chamber's business intelligence. More knowledge makes your chamber stronger, quicker, more accurate, and more valuable to your community.

7. Increase your chamber's strength. Linkedin is like fiber for your chamber's diet. A more strongly linked/knitted chamber equals stronger chamber members - members are encouraged by knowing who other chamber members know

8. Affordable membership - all your members can join free. Once Linkedin has proven its value to your chamber, members can affordably extend their reach over an appropriate period of time.

9, Encourage potential members to join your local chamber by enhanced online visibility. List your group in Linkedin's Group Directory. Members can be more effective chamber ambassadors by interacting with current and former colleagues.

10. Make a statement that your chamber is forward thinking. Coordinate important chamber meetings through Linkedin Groups.
