Do consumers really support businesses because they are chamber members? According to a recent study compiled by the Shapiro Group of Atlanta, GA, the answer is decidedly YES.


  • When consumers know that a restaurant franchise is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 40% more likely to consider buying from it.
  • When consumers know that an insurance company is a member, they are 43% more likely to consider buying from it.
  • When consumers know that a small business is a member of the Chamber, they are 44% more likely to think favorably of it and 63% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.

The study results show that being active in the local Chamber of Commerce is a good strategy for businesses to use.

Chamber Membership communicates to your customers that (1) you use good business practices, (2) are reputable, (3) care about customers, and (4) are involved in your community.
