Steps for Chambers, BBBs, & Associations

Help Your Businesses Promote Themselves

1. Join Every.CITY

Joining Every.CITY is a quick and easy step. Once you join Every.CITY, we will contact you to discuss the process, provide you with an online presentation, and secure a copy of your logo that will be made available to your within Every.CITY to identify your members.

2. Determine Participation & Revenue Sharing Levels

In addition to helping businesses promote themselves at no cost, there are also significant benefits and opportunities for Chambers of Commerce, Better Business Bureaus, and Associations. The most significant of these is the ability to add their logo to member businesses. Residents and others will frequently use this membership information in their decision making process to determine which business to engage with. Having their respective logo next to the business name will provide a "silent" incentive to non-member businesses to then become members. The displayed logos will also highlight and promote their organization.

Secondly, and important for Chambers and BBBs, there is also an opportunity to generate revenue for themselves based on their level of participation. The following two levels of participation and revenue sharing are available, with each Chamber and BBB receiving up to a total of 10 percent of the advertising revenue generated within their assigned jurisdiction:

  1. 5 Percent of advertising revenue: Provide an electronic listing (name, address, phone, business category and website) of each member business. Also, if the email address is not provided in this listing, serve as the gatekeeper to their members by providing those interested with their Sign In credentials so they can Sign In and participate and engage with the many opportunities provided by Every.CITY beyond being included in the Business Category Listings.
  2. 5 Percent of advertising revenue: Send yearly emails to their members, encouraging active participation in Every.CITY using materials we provide. Additionally, maintain the current display of their logo using the quick and easy interface provided to Chambers and BBBs within Every.CITY.

3. Support Local Businesses

Regardless of whether a Chamber or BBB decides to participate in the advertising revenue sharing opportunities, they have an opportunity to encourage their local businesses to promote and grow themselves without cost.

To do this, by joining Every.CITY, we will provide them with materials they can pass on to their membership, providing a valuable service.

4. Quickly Update Members Using Your Own Admin Pages

You will have your own Admin Page to quickly add and delete membership status changes. The first screen is where you enter any part of the text of the business name or the phone number, and then search. For example, you could enter 123 as part of the phone number and you would get a list of businesses that have 123 as any part of their number.

Click the Update link on the business name you want to either add or remove your logo from on the Business Listing. DONE!

It takes just a few seconds to add or delete your logo for a specific business. Most of the time is in entering your User ID and Password.
