In addition to chances to network, learn and make a difference for business in Manitowoc County, Chamber membership gives you direct access to promote your business in print and online.
Every Tuesday The Chamber of Manitowoc County sends out an email with the subject line “Tuesday Tidbits” (which is also made available on our website). As a Chamber member, you are welcome to submit a short message (85 words or less) pertaining to your business (an upcoming event, a sale or special, your services, etc.). Tuesday Tidbits is a great value-added marketing tool available to you at no cost. Submit your Tidbit to email@example.com by noon on Monday for inclusion in the next day’s edition. Ad space is also available for a small fee. Click here to view an example email.
Paid Ads: You can put your business’ logo or ad image at the top of our weekly Tuesday Tidbits newsletter along with the top tidbit and website link for $50. The preferred ad size is 6 inches (wide) by 5 inches (tall), but we can also work with other image sizes. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call now (920) 684-5575, to find out which Tuesdays are available, because the top ads do need to be reserved!
There is also an additional ad option (within the Tuesday Tidbits) to purchase a $40 ad image that goes above or next to your ad to get your information a little more attention. The preferred ad size is 5 inches (wide) by 3 inches (tall) or 6 inches (wide) by 5 inches (tall), but we can also work with other image sizes. You can send the image and ad request to email@example.com, or call (920) 684-5575. These spots are always available. They do not have to be reserved ahead of time.

We also offer a spot for Press Releases/Newsletters, whenever you want to share one. There is no limit to the amount of news releases you can share (as well as no text limit either). These also automatically get shared to our “Keep It Local Thursdays” email. If you send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will plan to post it within that week, unless you include a different release date. There is also a way to add them through your Chamber Master login, and then someone on our end approves them.
Here are some examples: https://business.chambermanitowoccounty.org/news/
