The Chamber’s Impact on Small business

A recent study ¹ indicates that chamber membership has consistent and powerful benefits for small business members—if consumers are aware that the small business is involved with its local chamber.  In short, being an active member of the Redding Chamber of Commerce is an effective business strategy. Consumers of products and services in a community can be assured that Chamber members use good business practices and are reputable members of the community they serve.

These business benefits include:

  • A 49% increase in its consumer favorability rating
  • A 73% increase in consumer awareness
  • A 68% increase in its local reputation
  • An 80% increase in the likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future
