Marketing and Promotional Benefits
FLYER DISTRIBUTION AT MONTHLY LUNCHEONS
Bring handouts or promotional items you would like to provide to our members and place them at each table. Members are responsible for picking up materials left at the end of the meeting. Materials left will be discarded by the cleanup committee.
"IN THE MIX" E-NEWSLETTER SUBMISSION
Is your company hosting an event? Have good news to share? Seeking candidates for open positions? Submit your event or announcement to be included in our email newsletter that is distributed weekly to 600+ subscribers!
3-MINUTE MEMBER SPOTLIGHT DRAWING
Place your business card in our member spotlight bowl at one of our monthly luncheons and you may be chosen to give a 3-minute presentation on your business at our next luncheon or be a featured member in our “In the Mix” e-newsletter.
Member Connects are small group get together's that allow you to really get to know fellow members on a personal level. Members are encouraged to sign up to host a Member Connect - plan a coffee date, lunch hour get-together or even happy hour! YOU choose the date, time and place and fellow members will come to you. Member Connect dates will be advertised in our “In the Mix” e-newsletter, so in case you’d rather not “host,” you can choose a Member Connect meeting to attend that works with your schedule. To sign up to host a Member Connect meeting, please contact us.
Members are allowed to post good news, announcements, events and promotions to the community section of the FCWCC Facebook page. Encourage your network to like our page for even more visibility. You can do this at any time.
When you join or renew your membership, your name is automatically listed in the Directory section of our website, along with your company name and description. You will receive an email to create your FCWCC online account, which grants you access to member-only event registrations and allows you to view contact information for fellow members.
RIBBON CUTTINGS (NEW!)
We value & support our members’ new and growing businesses. A ribbon cutting ceremony is an important part of your overall marketing plan and a great way to kick-off a grand opening or newly-renovated or relocated business. We’ll invite FCWCC members to your event through “In the Mix” and Facebook, as well as provide the ribbon, scissors & camera! Interested? Email us at email@example.com.

HOLIDAYS ARE IN THE BAG: Saturday, December 8th, 2018
Join fellow members and guests for our annual dinner and shopping event! For a minimal fee you will be treated to a delicious meal and plenty of wine. Fabulous raffle prizes will be gifted to all attendees, and everyone will receive a shopping bag full of surprise goodies & discount coupons to Fig Garden Village! Once dinner concludes, you’ll delight in 2-3 hours of shopping, with the opportunity to participate in an exciting scavenger hunt to win a FCWCC Membership. We’ll meet back up and end the night with dessert and coffee (or more wine if desired)! Promote your business with a raffle prize and/or coupon or small item for the shopping bags.
