The Chamber offers a variety of fee-based marketing programs open to all members who choose to participate. For more information or to sign up for these programs, contact your Membership Services Coordinator.
Web Site Link
Your customers turn to the internet more and more to find information about you prior to making a purchase or conducting business with you. You will keep their attention with a direct link from the Chamber’s online business directory to your business’s website, included in the cost of all membership levels.
Visitor Inquiry Mailing List (Lead Retrieval System)
This is your opportunity to make direct contact with people who are planning a trip to Seward. Visitors request information about you through the Chamber Online Trip Planner. Information specific to a visitor’s planned trip to Seward and areas of interest are collected online, and made available immediately to Member Subscribers. Receive phone, email, and snail mail contact information for these potential customers straight to your Inbox – enabling you to sell directly to individuals who want to hear from you.
Annual program fee: ($120)
UPGRADED Website Advertising
With over 14,000 unique viewers a month and over 21,000 monthly viewers, Seward.com is a worthwhile marketing investment. Advertising space is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis within the Business Directory and on key pages within the web site. Simply provide a 200 pixel high x 250 pixel wide advertisement in jpg or bmp format. Pricing is based on exposure, and includes a link from your advertisement directly to your business’ web site.
Annual program fee: ($100 – $500)
Destination Guide Advertising
The Seward Destination Guide is printed annually and distributed to 100,000 individuals seeking information about Seward. Distribution includes prospective visitors, business investors, and individuals considering relocating to Seward. Premium advertising includes the back cover and inside front, while other advertising opportunities are available in the printed Business Directory. The Directory section lists Members alphabetically by industry alongside associated advertising. The most current Destination Guide can also be found on Seward.com
Advertising costs vary. Your annual renewal packet (mailed early summer) will include the details.
Membership Meeting Host
Highlight your business to fellow Chamber members – a great resource for word of mouth referrals. As a membership meeting host, you will have 5 minutes at the beginning of the meeting to pass out information and tell those present about all your business has to offer. You will have the opportunity to introduce the guest speaker, as well. Meeting hosts are listed on the luncheon program and included in all publicity for the event. This is a very affordable way to get some exclusive exposure.
Host fee: ($12 buys the speaker’s lunch)
Alaska Sealife Center / Cruise Dock Display Racks
Members are given the opportunity to display their brochures at the Alaska SeaLife Center and at the cruise ship dock during the summer months. Chamber staff fill and maintain these racks.
Annual program fee: ($25)
