2015 ACE: Grand Award
The Nashville Area Chamber is recognized as a leading organization in Middle Tennessee, representing our member businesses and stakeholders in critical initiatives. However, as with most chambers, our organization is challenged with an image of being traditional and conservative, typically with only perceived rational decision-making reasons for being a member. Considering that loyalty is best reinforced with emotive factors, we developed a campaign to address rational and emotional decision-drivers for member acquisition and retention. Our approach also integrates the “shared” interests and experiences of our membership.
2015 ACE: Award of Excellence
The Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce (GPCC) launched a branding campaign in September 2014 to better communicate the value of membership. We recognize that our service offering can be complex (we offer professional development programs, networking events, members services, meeting space, and business advocacy) and that new/prospective members have a hard time understanding how membership can specifically meet their business needs. Our solution is the “Grow” branding campaign.
During the summer, the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce holds the WOW program (Where on Wednesday), where select Chamber member restaurants offer a 20 percent off discount on food. Members can print off the coupon, take it in, and get the discount, and restaurants can easily track the results. Survey results show that Wednesday is one of the slowest lunch days, and this promotion helps drive customers. Each week, a different set of restaurants participates and the Chamber promotes those restaurants.
