In 2022 digital marketing should be your star employee: one who works 24/7 to support your member businesses, showcase your value to community influencers, attract site selectors and connect with industry leaders. However, much like a disengaged and uninspired worker, poorly planned digital efforts can cost chambers of commerce time, money, energy, and relationships.

“Getting Social: Digital Marketing Trends and Best Practices” will build upon the foundation of best practices and highlight the emerging B2B trends that chambers of commerce and economic developers can incorporate into daily operations. You’ll leave with a list of observations, tactics, and procedures that you can adapt to your organization’s needs and internal structures.
