ATTENTION GREATER GRAND LEDGE RESIDENTS
The Chamber encourages you to patronize all of our Chamber members' businesses on the 4th Fridays of every month.
4th Fridays of the Month
ATTENTION CHAMBER MEMBERS: The Chamber is starting a new initiative in 2020 to drive economic growth to Grand Ledge businesses every month.
It is going to be super simple, easy to follow, and consistent each month.
The program is called "4th Fridays Grand Ledge". We want customers from around the greater area to patronize all of our Chamber members businesses on the 4th Fridays of every month.
In order to take part in this, you will send me what your deals, programs, specials are for the 4th Friday of the month. For instance, A&W might feature a half price Papa Burger, Ledge Craft Lane could be having a Wine and Painting Party, Aire Serv could be offering half off maintenance, Macdowells could have flower arranging classes, SNAP Fitness could have free boot camp classes for a day, and Dart Bank might be doing no fees for student bank accounts. Who knows! The sky is the limit, and you can be as creative as you want for your business that makes sense for YOU. This is not a certain hours of the day event - it is all day long on the 4th Friday. This could be something you are just doing for that day or that month. It is totally up to you.
Since you are a Chamber member, we are going to be promoting and marketing it to get customers in your doors. But, we invite you to jump on the wagon and promote it throughout your channels as well. We are only offering this to our Chamber members, so if you get questions of other area businesses who want us to add them to our list, they must be a Chamber member. Which quite frankly is such a deal at $240 for the year to have a $20 per month marketing partner and show your love of the community!
Monthly deadlines to submit specials, deals or event
Please have anything you want promoted to me by those dates. I am going to be pretty strict about that because we now have 234 chamber members and 10 other community events. So adhering to deadlines is going to be key, so we can keep on top of all the outreach events we are doing. The "4th Fridays Grand Ledge" logo has been created, and you will start seeing it on our website and our Facebook page in the next few days.
I hope this email answers all questions that might arise; if not, feel free to reach out to me. We know it is going to take time to build momentum for a monthly event, but we are going to stick with it and tweak it as we go. We believe this is something that everyone will benefit from in the long term.
Thank you again for being a part of the Grand Ledge Chamber of Commerce! Together we make Grand Ledge a great place to live and do business!
