Who doesn’t love a great deal?
From a great deal on shoes, discount or VIP cards at a favored restaurant to deep discounts on airline tix or hotel stays, we are always looking for value.
Tangibles are easy: $100 bucks off a fine rug, the first month’s payment, free (though it never really is free- look for those strings), or value – the rug is an Oriental and the discount is 50 percent off, or the first month is free on a new car lease. Those benefits are immediate, and pretty real.
Intangibles like a professional membership to the chamber can be a little harder to nail down.
When you join the Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce, you’re joining an organization and tapping into an array of resources.
Today, we’re going to talk about membership and specifically how to use the “Members Only” section on the UBCC website.
The Members Only section provides a gateway to reach others with a few simple clicks.
New to Members Only?
Here’s how to use it:
Go to www.ubcc.org, and select the Membership Tab at the top of the navigation bar.
Click on the drop down and at the bottom, click Members Login.
Once at Members Only you’ll be asked for your log in credentials. If you can’t recall or don’t know them, contact Tracy Kline at tkline @ubcc.org, or call the office (during business hours, please) at 215.536.3211. It just takes a minute, and we’re happy to help.
Great!! Now you’re inside. Once there you can post, navigate your membership, pay a bill - in fact here’s the short list of actions you can take, for Members Only.
*On Members Only home, you’ll see what events you’ve signed up for, as well as the full calendar to add to yours!
*Change your user name and or password, or assign your members only maintenance to a staff member.
*Update your contact information- Important if you want other member businesses and UBCC staff to find you quickly and effectively. Add new or additional employees you’d like to be active in your membership. Here’s where you can also add your Facebook or other social media platform links, as well as keywords about your business.
*Enhanced listings – Become a premiere member for $75 with an upgraded listing in the online membership directory on www.ubcc.org. Appear in the top of any search for your primary category listing, similar to “Sponsored Listings” in Google search results, appear with an increased font size, highlighted color & border, the addition of your logo and a premier member icon, long business description including bulleted text, ability to insert YouTube video, and the ability to add photos. (This is available on a first-come, first-served basis, per category.)
*Stay informed about chamber news and happenings – like our current Just One campaign, aimed at doubling the chamber’s membership with one real new conversion per existing member.
*Pay bills from your annual membership renewal to events, sponsorships and advertising – you can Pay a Bill online here.
*Take surveys and tell us how we’re doing. This could be feedback on chamber events, programs like breakfast or lunch and learn workshops, chamber offers, or events like the Golf Outing or Foodie.
*Pull referral reports. This part helps you understand how your membership analytics are working, and ask questions if you don’t understand. Analytics work hard to promote your business. And you’ll retrieve this information right from our database. This function also shows you what kinds of referrals you’re getting.
*Add a coupon for a special or business promo. Running a sale? Offering a discount for product or services? Here’s where to push out that information and see results.
*Submit an event- to your calendar or community. Running a promotion? Hosting a 5K race to benefit a worthy cause? Participating in something you want others to know and care about? Here’s the space to do that, and much more.
Only available to UBCC membership, check out the Members Only section, and put it to work for you.
