The program combines traditional membership with the tools needed to optimize search engine results. Information is made available on any search device, including tablets and mobile phones. Local businesses are showcased to prospective buyers in a relevant, beautiful, and functional way. As a result, the community enjoys a more robust, competitive online presence in the marketplace.

Mr. Scully developed the strategy after attending many chamber conferences, and listening to

executives describe their problems and needs. The concerns he encountered included

the frustration involved in finding new members, especially younger business owners, who felt

the Chamber of Commerce was not a relevant source of support to the unique needs of next generation businesses and buyers.

To solve these problems the Chamber needed a means of data gathering and the ability to present it to small business owners who lack the resources to do so on their own. By building a new system for chambers of commerce to employ, entire communities would be enabled to compete online as a unified group. was created with the struggles of Chamber executives in mind.  The program allows executives to overcome former hurdles and frees them to pursue other projects.

It also enhances the Chamber’s position as the most trusted source of information and a relevant broadcasting hub.

The program propels small business chamber members into the digital age by directing prospective buyers to the services they need and want.  The leads generated to local businesses demonstrate the value of membership in the local Chamber of Commerce and improve membership retention rates.  In addition, the community’s economy flourishes.

When neighboring Chambers work together, this same concept can strengthen commerce in an entire region.
