Attracting customers is one of the biggest challenges a business faces. The Schapiro Group conducted a national study that revealed being active in local Chambers of Commerce is an effective business strategy because it communicates to consumers that a company uses good business practices, is reputable, cares about its customers, and is involved in its community.
According to their research study, when consumers know that a small business is a member of their local chamber of commerce, they are 44 percent more likely to think favorably of it and 63 percent more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future. By aligning your efforts with the Greater Shreveport Chamber, your business gains exposure throughout the Shreveport- Bossier region and beyond. Whether you want to build your identity, generate leads, or spotlight your corporate responsibility initiatives, let the Greater Shreveport Chamber help carry your message to over 1,100 member companies that represent more than 75,000 employees.
