Mark Greenwood, Greenwood&Bell
"Our primary reason for being Chamber members is to meet potential clients. We have not been disappointed, we’ve met around 30% of the Greenwood&Bell client list at Chamber events.
We have used the Chamber website as one of our main PR channels. Most of the time, you’re never sure whether PR is working. However, recently a new client mentioned that they had read about Greenwood&Bell on the chamber site a couple of days before they gave us a call. I think this clearly shows that the site works for Chamber members.
A couple of Greenwood&Bell news stories have been picked up from the site and used in Norfolk Voice. This is a really good way of getting additional exposure for our business.
We have used the Chamber Sessions to keep up to date in all sorts of areas, including SEO, Personal Development and Tosin Ogunnusi’s fantastic sales pitch talk. These training sessions are short, practical and no additional cost - just what a small business needs.
One of the key benefits for us has been that, because Greenwood&Bell is a new business and we’re from out of the area, being welcomed into Norfolk's business community has been really important for us. The Chamber gives us a portal into the ebb and flow of business in the region, issues, opportunities - and we’ve made some great friends too."
