Take Advantage of Free Communication Tools

Looking for an effective way to share your news with fellow Chamber members? The Chamber offers free communication tools that reach a variety of audiences and are a benefit of membership.

Newsletter
The Chamber’s 8-page monthly newsletter features the latest in local business news as well as information on upcoming Chamber events, programs and activities. The Business Briefs page is devoted exclusively to news from members, offering a convenient way to announce a new product or service, an open house, or award. The publication is mailed out the first of the month to 900 members and civic leaders.
Content guidelines: 40 words
Deadline: 10th of the month prior to publication

E-Announcements
The Chamber’s monthly electronic bulletin, e-Announcements, is e-mailed to over 1,900 contacts including Chamber members, civic and community leaders the first business day of each month. The same guidelines as the newsletter apply to the e-Announcements, but an added benefit is the ability to provide a link to drive the reader to website content. Videos posted to YouTube and links to news articles about Chamber members are also often featured.
Content guidelines: 40 words with optional website or video link
Deadline: 25th of the month prior to publication

Chamber Facebook Page
The Chamber Facebook page is an easy way to publicize last minute events and late breaking news from members. Growing in popularity each week, the page has over 1,000 followers with an average of 100 views on each post. Members can be tagged in photos and the Chamber can share posts from member pages. Photos and website links are the best way to make the post stand out.
Deadline: No deadline: ideal for late breaking news and last minute announcements.

For help determining how to best promote your news, contact Communications Manager Carolyn Gessner at (847)513-6005 or carolyn@northbrookchamber.org. The Chamber reserves the right to edit any of the items for content and space purposes.&’ type=’text/javascript’>
