North Hennepin Area Chamber membership values have taken a giant leap forward with our “Enhanced Value Partnership” plan and our ‘Navigator’ sponsor platform. We welcome your support. The purpose is simple: Make membership a truly compelling proposition beyond any previous measure by:
- Expanding NHACC’s strengths in traditional networking, idea and knowledge generation, business education/learning, community involvement and high quality events to an unmatched level.
- Enhancing that powerful set of advantages through the inclusion of significant Chamber-specific discounts, participation benefits and other features offered by our own members.
- Creating a comprehensive branding, engagement and sponsorship platform that will surpass our major members’ annual promotional and initiative objectives.
- Providing a 360 degree benefit to member vendors – to both benefit from membership activities and initiatives as well as to generate direct new revenue.
Ultimately, our primary and major enterprise members will immediately recognize that the North Hennepin Area Chamber of Commerce presents a unique performance marketing pathway to an exceptionally well-tailored, demographically appealing audience that is by definition committed to supporting other members, throughout the Northwest Twin Cities suburbs.
In addition to all of the other new benefits and features we’ve introduced, we invite you to review a spectacular new program of exclusive association and performance marketing advantages called “EVPM3” (Enhanced Value Partnership Member to Member Marketing).
Our aim is to provide a platform for any business to launch clearly attributable market and awareness improvement, and to keep it that way, delivering highly-controlled ROI and measurable performance in the process.
You’re Automatically Enrolled for EVPM3 benefits, but you may also participate as a vendor.
What should you offer?
We hope for a significant and clear financial advantage – in dollar or percentage terms - to NHACC Chambermembers who choose to do business with you, and that you provide your offer for one year. We will in turn state to our current (approximately 320) and new members as well as their employees that they will be eligible to participate in the offer according to your rules, as long as they are members in good standing with us. Naturally, it’s impossible to say how many Chambermembers will select your particular offer over 12 months, and we recognize that some flexibility will be necessary. We welcome your thoughts on this.
Validation of Chambermember eligibility for your EVPM3 offer could be achieved in any one of several ways, at your choice:
- For example: Your offer may include a unique gift card or certificate you produce, which can only obtained through our office under the EVPM3 program.
- If you don’t use a gift card or some other redeemable device, we could provide a formal letter of eligibility the Chambermember could present.
- Verification of membership via our website directory.
- A call to our office.
- Or, you could simply accept the Chambermember’s ID and personal assurance as sufficient eligibility, if you are unable not able to verify through us or our website.
We are considering creation of a unique Chamber membership card in the near future for this purpose and others.
We definitely want to be informed of the activity the EVPM3 plan generates to help us further refine and/or amplify the package.
It’s a two-way circuit, of course: You and your employees will be eligible for all of the other EVPM3 benefits, too.
Thank you for considering how your organization might participate in EVPM3. We look forward to hearing from you.
