Offering More Than Just a Referral
The Manatee (FL) Chamber of Commerce is set to launch a major marketing plan for its “Local Quotes 4 U”: an online program that offers people looking for services and products a chance to directly contact the Chamber’s 2,250 members and request a price quote. Since its inception in September 2009, the program has mostly been used by Chamber members. The Chamber is now marketing “Local Quotes” to the public, and it is hoping that it will encourage more residents to "buy local." “It’s a win-win,” said Carey Miller, the Chamber’s office administrator. “Not only does it drive more business to our area members who support the community, but the individual pricing request gets the best price possible.” Learn how the program works here.
