We offer several different no cost, or low cost, marketing platforms to help our members create awareness about their products/services.
There is no more powerful marketing tool than personal relationships and referrals. While networking can take place during any of the Chamber's 70+ annual events, we do program several events specifically for the purpose of networking: a.m. Exchanges, Business After Hours, Power 30 Speed Networking, and Schmoozapaloozas are great places to meet new businesspeople and build relationships with them. Grab a stack of cards and join us for the next one! Click here to find out when our next networking event is scheduled!
Possibly the most dynamic marketing tool the Chamber provides its members is automatic inclusion in our interactive online directory, iKnowKnoxville.com. The site, which was launched in November 2010, is now averaging about 70,000 page views each month.
Every Chamber member company receives a promo page on the directory, but the number of features available to you is determined by the membership tier you joined at. Upgrade “Bundles” are also available to enhance the sophistication of your promo page. Some of our member's favorite features on this site include:
- Including their logo on their promo page
- A 50-word “About Us” description of their business
- The ability to add photo slide shows to show their products/services
- The ability to embed video commercials
- Opportunities to post coupons
- Opportunities to post jobs
- Opportunities to post events to the Community Calensar
If you aren’t taking advantage of this powerful marketing platform, you need to be. Click here to visit our iKnowKnoxville.com Resources page to learn more.
