STEP ONE – REPRESENTATION
ENROLL YOUR EMPLOYEES AS BUSINESS REPRESENTATIVES OF YOUR BUSINESS ORGANIZATION
All employees of a business member are eligible to access membership resources such as receiving our newsletters and attending events as well as connecting with other business member representatives on the Chamber’s Member Information Center (MIC or member portal), a social media feed exclusive to Chamber members. To access these resources, each business representative must be invited to create their own login personal to them. Contact Info@FayBiz.com with questions or issues with login.
STEP TWO – COMMUNICATION
MAKE SURE YOU AND OTHERS IN YOUR COMPANY ARE GETTING EMAILS FROM THE CHAMBER
Be sure to mark faybiz.com as safe to prevent our emails from going to your spam box. Check there first if you are not receiving anything from us. Our emails keep you up-to-date on the most current happenings with your Chamber team and other members. Email Marketing@FayBiz.com if you are not receiving our emails. We protect your information and do not share nor sell it to anyone.
STEP THREE – MARKETING
VERIFY & EXPAND YOUR CHAMBER DIRECTORY ON-LINE LISTING
Our on-line membership directory could be the first impression your business makes on visitors! Make certain that your information is complete and correct. For added enhancement, add pictures, video, social media links and other information to make your page vibrant and stand out from others. To improve your business directory SEO, periodically make a change to show activity on your page. Directory page management is done by a designee of the business member using their login to the MIC.
STEP FOUR – PROMOTION
