HOME BASED BUSINESS PROGRAM
Opportunity to join the Chamber as a Home Based Business
The Erie County Chamber researched and found several different Home Based Businesses in our area and saw an opportunity to mentor, help develop their brand, and provide advertising and marketing to help the Home Based Business entrepreneur turn their small Home Based Business into a full time career.
The Home Based Business Program consists of meeting at the Chamber once a month. The Chamber will teach these entrepreneurs how to develop a relationship with other Home Based Businesses and network with them.
The Chamber will bring in special speakers from time to time to talk on a specific business or education topic.
Each Home Based Business will join the Erie County Chamber of Commerce for $175 and will be eligible to take part in any Chamber programs.
As part of the Chamber’s Home Based Business Program, the Chamber will provide a complimentary Banner Ad on the Chamber’s website to market and create awareness of their business.
As a member of the Chamber in good standing, the Home Based Businesses can request a Member Certificate to display in their home office, at craft shows or events.
There will be opportunities to take part in Chamber events to sell products and services to the public.
