A national study by The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta based market research firm, reveals a number of important findings about
how consumers and business owners perceive the local chamber of commerce and the businesses that are their members.

For example:

When consumers know that a business is a member of the local chamber:

They are 44% more likely to think favorably about it.

Consumers who are told that a business is a chamber member are:

51% more likely to be highly aware of it

57% more likely to think positively of its local reputation

Consumers are 63% more likely to buy goods and services in the future from a company that they
believe is a member of the local chamber of commerce.

The study also has good news for businesses that sell to other businesses.

They are 37% more likely to think favorably of the business

51% more likely to be highly aware of it

58% more likely to think positively of its local reputation
