• Production begins on 2009 Chamber Community Directory

Imagine having a sales representative working for you who never took a day off, always responded quickly to potential clients and reached thousands of prospects each year. When you choose to showcase your business in the 2009 Covington Community Directory, you are getting exactly that.

Production of the directory is now underway and, as always, presents an outstanding “members only” opportunity. The chamber distributes this important publication all over the United States in response to inquiries from prospective businesses and residents consider a move to our area. In addition, it is given to all current and prospective members, and is used by other businesses when they are looking for a reputable company to do business with. Through your participation, you are helping the Chamber produce a quality marketing tool for the Covington Chamber of Commerce and Chamber business partners. An advertisement helps make a statement about your firm’s commitment to the Chamber and the community as a whole.

The entire publication, including all advertisements, will be placed on the chamber website www.covingtonchamber.org at no additional cost. This is an added bonus and a great opportunity to promote your business on “the net”.

Chamber membership entitles each company to one listing in the alphabetical section by company and one in the classified section by type of business. The company will be listed in the Buyer’s Guide section under their primary classified listing only. If you wish to be listed under more than one classified listing, please discuss the additional listings fee with the Lawton Publications representative when they call you or fill out the bottom portion of the letter and mail or fax to the Chamber.

Natasha Tanev, a professional advertising representative from Lawton Publications will be contacting Chamber members soon. We encourage you to take a few moments to learn of the promotional opportunity for your business. If you would like to discuss your company’s participation, please mail or fax this to the Chamber office.

Act soon, only a limited number of advertising spaces are available.
