Let’s face it, when you own a business there’s a lot on your plate and a lot you don’t have time for. It doesn’t mean you’re not community conscious or want to improve your company’s culture - it just means you might need a tiny bit of help. And guess what? That’s okay! Actually, it’s great!

“Location. Location. Location is the key to marketing.” Well, that may be true for some but since the rise of the digital age, location includes both brick and mortar establishments, as well as, many online platforms. And sometimes, it’s hard to get in front of the right crowd. But not with us.
Whether you’re looking to collaborate with others like yourself, or want more foot traffic to walk through the door - we’ve got your back. We have an online reach that far extends to an audience over 12,000 throughout our social media platforms, including hundreds of users visiting our website on a daily basis. Not to mention, our email subscriber list is about 5 miles long and our walk-ins is even longer - so we know how to get the word out about what our members are up to.
Promoting the highlights of your company’s best features is what we do best! Let’s just say, we have the “magic sauce” to make your marketing count with us. Plus, we’re a lot of fun. I mean, we’re really fun. Like really, really fun. ;)
“ABC - it’s easy as 123!” If education is what’s stopping you; well, not anymore! We’ve made it easy - nay, FUN to receive a quality education from monthly top-notch classes. We also have some pretty cool programs that allow our businesses to get involved in the academic arena within the primary and secondary school systems of Waxahachie. Basically, your knowledge and involvement with us is limitless!
When you have questions like, “I’ve got a tight budget, how do I market without money?” Or maybe, “How do I increase my sales… like now. Right now.” Or, “I’d like to make a difference in a child’s life… could I give a teacher a break and be a guest speaker?” Through our education partnerships, we are able to coach you through the ups and downs your business faces, as well as, give you the opportunity to give back. Think of us as the Sparknotes to your college essay. We’ve got the answers you’ve been looking for.
All in all, the Waxahachie Chamber is for businesses, by the businesses, and we want the absolute BEST for YOUR business! So if you’d like to give us a chance through membership - we promise you won’t regret it.
