I was just directed to join the Chamber of Commerce...again. Now, I've worked in several industries "industry agnostic" and in return have joined several chambers in different parts of the country b/c my DR had big hopes of generating sales from the chamber...this never happened...ever. Almost everyone in the networking sessions seemed to be looking to "sell" something themselves or was retired and had a connection or two to give that never really happened either.
I was just asked by the board to assign one of my AEs to join the local chamber and act as our rep in hopes of leading to many sales.
I'd love to hear about any experience in working with local chambers in a sales effort?!
