“How I tapped into the Chamber’s Network”

I have a small business which requires more customers. I had decided to venture into e-mail marketing, so with that in mind attended the Chamber's "May the Fourth be with you" meeting on digital marketing. I was inspired by the practical talk given by Ralph, of Web-Clubs. He explained how a small business, who couldn't afford to pay skilled help, could use Mail Chimp to setup an e-mail campaign. He also gave quite a bit of advice on actually running a campaign! I have now setup Mail Chimp

However I was still unsure how to proceed. Fortunately I was able to get help from another Chamber member. Paul Batey, of Clarks of Amersham, sat with me today and guided me through a campaign - it really isn't difficult, I just needed that bit of confidence that Paul gave. Tomorrow my first campaign goes live!

I don't know how well it will work and I know I've still a long way to go before I'll be running really good campaigns. However, I do know if it hadn't been for Chamber putting on that event, and a member (Paul) being prepared to help me, I wouldn't be launching a campaign anytime or possibly ever!

Speaking as a small business this is what we need - real practical help. Thank you Chamber!

Ley Hill Solutions

With the launch of the revised ISO9001 (Quality) and 14001 (Environmental) standards in September 2015, we are seeing increasing numbers of local businesses who see the benefits in being able to demonstrate to their customers their approaches to consistency in what they do. For some it is becoming a requirement or first hurdle to bidding for work with local government or with larger companies. For any member of the Chiltern Chamber who wishes to achieve these standards we will assist you as we have done with many other organisations and to celebrate our 15 years in business, if we start the work with you before the end of August 2016 and you are a member of the Chamber we will offer a 10% discount on our normal daily rates.
