Why just buy advertising when there is so much more you can do to develop your company's brand?

Advertising is great…but so are public relations and community affairs. Sponsoring events and programs at the Longview Chamber of Commerce includes all three branding strategies in one effective multifaceted strategy.

Sponsoring Longview Chamber of Commerce events and programs gives your company the publicity and brand recognition you need in a positive and receptive environment. Business leaders recognize and appreciate companies that help them gain knowledge and make important contacts.

When you sponsor a Chamber event or program, your company benefits from:

  • Brand Association with High Profile Business Events
    Companies that want to be recognized for being industry leaders and community partners welcome the benefits of association with important business events. If your company needs to have name recognition with high income professionals, executives, managers and other influential business decision-makers, Chamber events and programs may be just the answer.
  • Publicity
    Public recognition can't be purchased – it has to be earned. Fortunately, the Chamber makes it easy to ride on the Chamber's 90+ year-old heritage. Chamber events and programs are highly publicized…and so are their sponsors. Your company's brand name is included in collateral materials and print advertising to help you lock in this valuable public recognition.
  • Advertising
    Chamber events are supported with their own advertising campaigns. Exposure in broadcast, print and on-site advertising ensures heightened sponsor brand recognition among a carefully targeted audience of business owners and executives.
  • Access to New Business Relationships
    The one-on-one marketing aspects of Chamber events and programs allow companies to open relationships with dozens of new clients and customers. Of course, these events are also ideal for renewing and strengthening relationships with existing clients and customers

Opportunities for sponsorship open each year during the Total Resource Campaign (TRC). The TRC provides the opportunity for your company to pick from a menu of available sponsorships and plan your commitments in advance for ease of annual budgeting. For more information on how to tap into the Longview Chamber of Commerce's sponsorship opportunities please contact Leska Parker at 903-918-1546.
