SHOWCASING YOUR BUSINESS
Your fellow WBA members are a great business connection — they can be a source to both obtain and exchange business referrals. Promote your company, your products and services by getting to know fellow area business owners and exchange referrals. Referrals are one of the strongest marketing tools a business can harness. Networking at our monthly meeting will allow you to make the fullest use of your membership to promote your business.
The WBA website offers a free descriptive member listing and links to your your email and your company’s website on our website. In addition, our full color Map & Guide is distributed free locally and throughout the entire mid-coast area and along the Maine Turnpike. It creates awareness of our businesses and the resources available in Waldoboro. Members are listed in this print publication for free. Our members are also encouraged to place their brochures and information on our freestanding kiosks that are placed in retail locations in town. Our newest updated Map & Guide will be available in May 2014. Watch for it.
Besides networking opportunities, the monthly meeting is a great place to hear guest speakers and members speakers of topics of interest to our businesses.
Throughout the year we strive to promote our businesses in a variety of ways through sponsorships and community awareness events. This is extremely valuable particularly for many of our businesses which are not ‘storefront-type’ businesses.
OUR ANNUAL MEETING AND DINNER is an opportunity to review the year, elect officers and enjoy the company of our fellow business owners with food, drink and entertainment.
