The McHenry Area Chamber offers members the opportunity to reach out to an untapped market—new residents. New residents are eager to learn about their new community and local products and services available.
Through the “Welcome to Your New Home” program, businesses can capitalize on the credibility of the Chamber to influence recent arrivals to “Shop Chamber Members First.”
Here is how the program works:
- Each month, new residents are delivered a package loaded with promotional items and brochures created especially with them in mind. The bag bears the logo: “Welcome to Your New Home! Coupons and Gifts sponsored by the McHenry Area Chamber of Commerce.”
- Sponsor businesses provide 90 copies of their materials and pay only $1 per visit, up to 30 per visit, to be included each month.
- The Chamber sends the sponsor business a complete list (with names and addresses) of the new residents who received the packages that month.
