Cobb Chamber Offers Resources, Networking, Cost Savings to Small Businesses

February 19, 2015

Chamber BldgStarting a small business often begins as a passion that turns into a labor of love. Small business owners live and breathe their business, doing everything possible to ensure its success. At the Cobb Chamber, we share your passion for your company’s success. That’s why we’ve put together a long list of resources and programs that hand entrepreneurs the tools to build a successful small business. As part of Georgia Small Business Week, we’ve put together a small business cheat sheet to remind you of all the ways the Chamber can help your business.

Let’s start with the Business Resource Center, a source of up-to-date information for companies or individuals searching for custom market data.  The center provides research and data customized to your needs and includes access to databases that provide company profiles, demographic reports with current year estimates, and a database of available commercial property. The center can help you locate your target audience and find the perfect place for your business. We’ve even put together a list of links especially for small businesses.

Now that you know where your customers are, the Chamber can help you market business. Not only does the Chamber host hundreds of events each year designed specifically to create valuable connections and provide you potential business, we also offer numerous opportunities to get your business in front of potential clients – many of them for free! You can post events to our community calendar, post and view deals exclusively for Chamber members, submit press releases to appear in our blog, and schedule a ribbon cutting ceremony – all free to Chamber members! We also offer sponsorship opportunities and advertising in our print publications and e-communications as well as online at cobbchamber.org.

There’s a leader in all of us and our nationally acclaimed leadership programs give you the tools to fine tune your problem solving, team building and management skills and recognize your potential while offering experiential learning opportunities.

Additionally, the Chamber offers free entrepreneur counseling through SCORE, a non-profit association and resource partner with the Small Business Administration, dedicated to entrepreneur education and the success of small businesses. Working and retired executives and business owners who share their expertise across more than 60 industries donate their time as volunteer business counselors, providing confidential counseling and mentoring free of charge.

The Chamber can also help you lower your bottom line with Cost Savings Programs. Chamber members save big bucks by taking advantage of special pricing from vendors like Constant Contact, Group Transportation Services, Healthy Business Alliance and Office Depot. Chamber members also gain access to the free prescription assistance program through the Georgia Drug Card and lower workers’ comp premiums through participation in Drugs Don’t Work.
