Posted on September 7, 2012

This event has been cancelled - we apologize for any inconvenience




Almost daily the Pike County Chamber of Commerce hears about small businesses who are suffering through this difficult economy and the decline of their commerce and sales. Some businesses are losing a core of customers who are tourists; others who are not retailers are losing them to a slow-down that has infected virtually all levels of businesses everywhere. Under these circumstances, how does one look to increase customers and clients? Positioning your business on the Internet is one solution and, it is much easier than you might think. With just several items that are easy to learn, a Pike County business could develop a whole new set of customers on the internet.

The Seminar is entitled: “Don’t Be A Victim – How to Develop a Presence on the Internet and Earn Additional Income”. This is part of the Pike Chamber’s “Third Thursday” seminar series and the following are some of the items that will be discussed: Examples of businesses that add new classifications of buyers, both large and small, Building a website in one hour and maintaining it for very little money (like $59 per year!), This website could and should be for a different audience than your present website -- if you currently have one, Classifications of selling: Business-to-Business vs. Business-to-Consumer sales and even Business-to-Government (B2G) - each has its own potential and clientele, Understanding the purchase of lists – just how specific can they be?, How to use a combination of a dedicated website and direct mail for maximum effect, Identifying market niches from public & Internet-based data sources as well as much more. Feel free to ask questions.

This is open to the community on Thursday, September 20th at 7:30a.m. at the Best Western Inn at Hunt’s Landing in Matamoras, PA.

Pike Chamber Secures Top Business Sponsors for Toomey Event


Posted on August 6th, 2012
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce is pleased that the local area businesses realize what a great event the Chamber is hosting by showing their support with top event sponsorships. The following businesses have confirmed sponsorships: Pike County Light & Power as Platinum Sponsor, Wayne Bank and The Dime Bank as Gold Sponsors, Biondo Investment Advisors and Ed Nikles Custom Builder, Inc. as Silver Sponsors and Rodgers-Olver-Polley Insurance and Lackawanna College as Bronze Sponsors. The following media sponsors include The Milford Journal, Bold Gold Media and the Pike County Dispatch.

The Signature Event for 2012 is a wonderful dinner with the keynote speaker United States Senator Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania. Since joining the Senate in 2011, Senator Toomey has distinguished himself as a leader on economic, financial services and budgetary issues, striving to restore fiscal discipline to Washington and economic opportunity for all Americans. Among other things, Senator Toomey introduced a 10-year balanced budget proposal that received more votes in the Senate than any other budget plan in 2011, and he has successfully helped cut federal red tape for local communities and job creators in Pennsylvania through his Had Enough? constituent services program.

Senator Toomey previously served in Congress as a member of the House of Representatives from Pennsylvania's 15th Congressional District, where he championed economic growth and fiscal discipline. In fulfillment of his three-term pledge, he retired from the House in 2004. In addition to his public service, the senator has also served as president of the Club for Growth, owned and operated a small restaurant chain in the Lehigh Valley, and worked in the financial services industry.

Senator Toomey’s discussions will focus on the business of the United States Senate, current economic conditions, options for resolutions relating to unemployment, taxes and also balancing the budget.

The Community is invited to attend this gala evening which will take place at the Woodloch Pines Resort in Hawley, PA on September 6, 2012. Cocktails at 5:30p.m. with a sit down dinner at 7:00p.m. Individual dinners are $75.00 per person or you can take advantage attending the Special Pre-Dinner VIP Party and Photo Opportunity with Senator Patrick J. Toomey for an additional $50.00.

For more information, to become a sponsor or make reservations contact the Chamber office at (570) 296 – 8700 or online at www.pikechamber.com.
