    Q:  How and why should I follow the Chamber socially?
     
    A: Following the Chamber socially is an effective way to keep up with Chamber news and events, ribbon cuttings and new members, plus it provides the perfect space for you and your business to engage with us, our staff and our community.
    Increased exposure is one of the biggest benefits you and your business can gain.
     
    Here’s how we do it:
    • New and renewed members are featured in our weekly New Member Monday posts.
    • We share photos from their ribbon cuttings, along with info about the members.
    • We promote member events and initiatives.
    • We feature two Ambassadors weekly, which is a great way to show our appreciation for their commitment to promoting the Chamber’s mission, as well as highlighting the businesses that support the Chamber.
    All the Chamber’s social media channels are steadily growing. This is significant because it gets all of these items plus other posts sharing member news in front of more eyes, delivering more value and exposure for our member businesses. And because each channel’s key demographics are different, our message is going out to people who might not have engaged with us in the past.
     
    Our social strategy is simple:
    We strive to highlight our members and investors, showcase their businesses and services, and document Chamber activities and events. Posts for each platform include reminders of upcoming Chamber and partner events, media coverage featuring the Chamber, City, County and members, along with additional news and announcements important to our overall business climate and community. 
     
    And connecting and engaging with us is equally simple. Just search “Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce” on any of these social platforms: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
     
    KNOW THE NEWS FIRST 
    You don’t have to be a member of the Chamber to follow any of our channels, but we encourage you to do so, because that will ensure our posts show up in your feeds. You can take it a step further on Facebook by choosing to have our posts always show up first on your timeline when we share new ones. 
     
    Here’s how to set it up:
    On your desktop/laptop, go to our page, hover over the “Following” tab, and select “See First” in the drop-down menu.
     
    On your mobile device, go to our page, tap the button that has three dots, tap “Following,” then tap the image that reads “See First.”
