The Socorro County

If you’re a small or large
business, there are a long list of benefits to being a

Does your business have an effective presence on the web?
We’ve been working hard in the past year to increase our
support of members online, from an enhanced Chamber website
and YouTube videos promoting our county to a thriving
Chamber Facebook page, which has become a great way for
locals to connect with the community. Even if you don’t have
a Facebook account, we can still promote your events,
information, and specials on Facebook to about 250
followers. Simply email any information you’d like shared to
firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to our social media efforts,
we promote you and your business with a prominent listing
and logo on our website at
www.socorro-nm.com, and through
member announcements on our website, as well.
All of this online information sharing doesn’t mean we’ve
stopped supporting our members in more traditional ways:
information packets on local businesses are still provided
to potential visitors, new residents, NMT students, First
Responders, and conference attendees. Also, brochures,
business cards, merchandise, and local artwork are displayed
prominently in the Chamber office for exposure to tourists
and other walk-in traffic.
Our monthly newsletter goes out to approximately 350
households and businesses. Does your business have specials,
upcoming events, or coupons that you’d like to have promoted
to the community? The Chamber is happy to insert member
flyers into its newsletter. Member businesses have access
to the Chamber’s bulk mailing permit, as well.
In addition to including member flyers as inserts in the
Chamber newsletter, new members are highlighted each month,
to keep the community abreast of new products and services
being offered. The monthly Member Spotlight typically
highlights 6 to 8 local businesses to remind readers of who
they are and what they do. El Defensor Chieftain also prints
the Chamber of Commerce newsletter on their monthly Chamber
Page, so information about member businesses reaches a wider
audience, as well.
If you’re already a member, we really value your trust in us
and your support of our local economy. If you’re not yet a
member, give us a call to see how we might be able to help!
