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 every other week to 600+ subscribers!
3-MINUTE MEMBER SPOTLIGHT DRAWING
Place your business card in the member spotlight bowl when you arrive at one of our monthly luncheons. We will be having a drawing at the end of the luncheon and you may be chosen to give the next “3-Minute Spotlight” presentation to highlight your business at the next luncheon. MEMBER CONNECT
Member Connects are small group get togethers 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 by email and our and on our Facebook page, 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. You can do this at any time. Like our Page and tag @FCWCC in your post and make sure the post marked "public' and it will be visible on the community tab. Encourage your network to Like, Comment and Share your post for more visibility.
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.
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” e-newsletter and on Facebook page, as well as provide the ribbon, scissors and camera! Interested? Email us at email@example.com.
