Chamber Update

31 Aug 2016

Depending on algorithms

The recent sell-out breakfast held by the chamber at the Knowledge Market was attended by 68 people and we all learned how to stay ahead of the market.

The facts are simple. The number of people who use social media to make buying decisions is increasing exponentially.

If you operate a business you can no longer ignore the importance of Twitter, Instagram and Facebook as tools. These tools will ensure you stay connected to your potential and existing consumers.

We heard from King Creative, Mo Works, Studio Hawk and the City of Melbourne – all with useful information. We now understand the impact of Google algorithms. If you want to learn more, join the chamber.

We all saw the importance of digital branding and why a social media presence is vital to success. We heard about the real potential and value in the collaborative marketing opportunities with the City of Melbourne.

We all really appreciated the attendance of Cr Beverley Pinder-Mortimer as well as Chez Asch, business co-ordinator for business and tourism at the City of Melbourne.

Members will see more help and guidance in this space as the chamber moves forward. We have an exciting 12 months in front of us.

The Docklands Chamber of Commerce annual general meeting (AGM) is approaching fast. Check your diary and book in October 6 at 6pm.
