Member-to-Member Discount Program
WRACC wants to feature one of your discounts. It’s pretty simple.
1. You offer a %off or $off deal for a WRACC member to take advantage of–a deal that you don’t typically offer to the general public.
2. We at the Chamber publish your offer alongside your logo and contact information on our social media, quarterly e-announcements, and in print at our luncheons and new membership packets—along with a mention on our web site.
3. WRACC members are driven to your business to redeem the offer, and hopefully, you gain a long-term customer!
If you want to change the offer at any time, you just let us know and we’ll switch it up for you. Interested? If so, please contact Paul with your offer, logo, and contact information: firstname.lastname@example.org and you can be one of our first offers that gets broadcast!
