Can’t Work IN Your Business, Work ON Your Business – Part 1, Leverage Your Discounts
By: Jennifer Locke, Executive Director | April 6, 2020
I have been wracking my brain on how best to support local business at this time.
From #BuyCloseBy to connecting my members with resources and people that can help, it has been a busy few weeks.
Now settled into working remotely, I had the thought that members would likely have time to take a step back and work on their businesses when they can’t work in their businesses.
My topic of the week?
Cutting costs by leveraging the Chamber 10+ discounts that are already in-place.
First and foremost, here is our listing of member-2-member discounts.
This list is free to be on as a member of the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce, allows for us to act as a cross-selling vehicle, a way to add value to our members, and it’s a useful way to #BuyCloseBy in the #MyHaliburtonHighlands.
It covers a range of Chamber members, please get in touch using the form below if you would like to be a part of this list!
Our partners at the ESSO fuel rewards program would like to remind our members that if they sign up for the program (credit application required), that they save 3.5 cents per litre on fuel purchased at any ESSO or Mobil station.
Merchant Service Discount
Mastercard and VISA have raised their tap limits from so that fewer people touch the machines – everyone seems to be doing their part! Bruce Averill is our local representative, and he assures me that he remains available by phone and email to my members who wish to take this time to examine their merchant service program and decide to switch to save money with First Data.
Conferencing Solutions Discount
We have a strong partnership through the Canadian Chamber of Commerce with Pragmatic Conferencing, whereby our members save 25%.
Email Marketing Discount
Our partners at Constant Contact assure us that our Chamber discount for an annual email marketing subscription remains intact.
Our partners at Purolator would like us to remind you that they continue to extend the highest discount for a lifetime to our Chamber – 45% off list rate. FYI, My members in legal, insurance and similar professions speak very highly of this discount, it lasts a lifetime, has no minimum usages, and is a flat discount across the board.
Office Supply Discount
For those that order their specialty office supplies in, we have a nice program with Grand & Toy whereby pricing can be further customized for our Chamber.
That is it for this week’s edition – be sure to check our COVID-19 Resource Page for more updates, resources, and copies of our latest member communications.
Wishing you all the best,
Jennifer M. Locke
