Promotion & Publicity

The Bellingham Regional Chamber of Commerce offers promotion and publicity to every member at no additional cost. The target demographic varies depending on the source of the promotion, but you should be able to reach your demos through all of our offerings.

Online Promotion

Some of the online promotional options happen automatically when you join the chamber. No action is required for item 1. If you set us up to automatically receive your press releases and business news, no additional work is required for 3, 4 and 6.

  1. Online business directory at
  2.  Annual printed business directory
  3. E-newsletters (sent to approx. 2,500 subscribers)
  4. Your press releases appear in the “Member News” section of our website
  5. Submit blog posts to provide expert advice to your fellow member businesses
  6. Post your events on our community calendar at

Print Promotion

Every member will be listed in the chamber’s annual business directory which is distributed locally and nationally. The directory includes relocation information for people who are moving to Whatcom County. The content of the articles is informational, yet we try to incorporate as many member businesses into the articles as we can.

The chamber has a “Member Spotlight” program where a feature article is written about a member. The article can be posted on our blog, our WhatcomTalk page and the Bellingham Business Journal.

You are also welcome to bring your own printed fliers to the monthly networking breakfast so that every attendee receives a copy of your material.


When you attend our monthly Networking Breakfast, you also get to promote your business to a minimum of 21 people. You can also enter to win a chance to speak in front of the breakfast audience of 100-120 people. Attend the monthly Business After Business, Chamber Speaker Series and On Topic speeches for casual networking with business leaders representing a variety of industries.
