Committee News is an online magazine covering local government, business and special interest groups. Contests and events keep the members interested and the editor will put together a feature article on upcoming events. The best part of this service is that you can be a contributor and get your name out there! Events are often listed alphabetically by the city that they are in so you can search and be informed of what’s going on in your area. It also comes complete with a calendar so you know what events are coming up soon and what you need to do to help or support the cause.
This site does have its critics though. Some people believe it takes too long for information to reach the public. If a news story breaks that has information that people need immediately, they may not be able to find it. But, if they know about an event that has been planned years in advance, they will want to go and support the event.
Other people think it is a wonderful service and use it quite frequently. I know a couple who sell t-shirts with the event information on them and sell them at their store on the weekends. People just love to support local organizations and community events. If you own a restaurant or business and would like to advertise in a town where it is not widely known, using a service such as this will definitely reach a lot of people.
It is worth the cost because it can really help to get word out about an upcoming event or help out a small business. I used to own a carpet cleaning company and one of our best sales managers was a committee member. This person was an incredible salesperson and helped us to grow into a bigger business. She was a valuable resource to our operation and was always willing to help give advice when needed.
One of the most important things that a committee member can do is make sure they get their name out there. Because there is a lot of networking and traveling to various events, this person needs to have the ability to spread the word and get their name out. This is a great advantage to a service like this because they can help you advertise your business in ways that just listing in the yellow pages would not. They also have contacts throughout the community. This gives them a leg up on other businesses who may be trying to get their name out.
It is also a great way to develop relationships with other business owners in the area. If you run a restaurant, a sandwich shop or any other business, it can be very helpful to get your name out to the community. I always try to use a service such as this because they help me with my advertising and also help me build my reputation within the community. If you have never considered using a committee to help you advertise your business, then you should really consider it. You will find that if you let someone handle all of your advertising for you, then you will be able to focus on doing what you do best and that is running your business.
