About M2M Program
What is the M2M program?
The Steinbach Chamber of Commerce Member2Member Discount Program (M2M) provides a value-added service to our members. Participating businesses provide discounts for their products and/or services, and receive recognition, advertising, and potentially much more business! Members receive an additional benefit of discounts towards their purchases at a variety of businesses in a convenient method – an M2M key tag. Every member receives two key tags upon joining the Chamber.
What are the benefits of providing an M2M offer?
For providing a discount/benefit, your business will be listed in the following mediums:
- Periodic highlights in the Chamber e-newsletter
- Recognition as a M2M participant in the Chamber’s online roster
- A 1-2 sentence company description will be included on the website and lists with the benefit offered by your company
- Plus you can save money by getting discounts and benefits from many other businesses with your own M2M key tag!
How do I participate?
To provide a discount or other benefit, complete a registration form and email or fax back to the Chamber office. (For example, you may choose to provide a 15% discount, a $20 gift card with purchase of $100 or more, free delivery, free 1 year warranty with purchase, free computer service, or buy 3 get 1 free – whatever works for your business.) Once your application has been received, your special offer will be included on the Chamber’s website in the M2M roster.You may begin participation any time during the year. Provide your agreed discount/benefit to customers that show their valid M2M key tag,and enjoy the discounts and benefits from using your key tag at other participating businesses!
If you do not wish to participate in this way and simply want to take advantage of the benefits offered by other Chamber Members, simply show your key tag to participating members at time of purchase.
Are there any limitations to what I can provide as a benefit?
All discounts and benefits of any kind will be subject to review by the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce. To be a program participant at this level, you must offer a minimum of a 5% discount or similar value to be fair for the advertising and recognition your company will be receiving as a program participant.
If I agree to provide a discount, am I obligated to provide the discount for the next year?
No, you are not obligated, you may cancel your participation at any time and your information will be deleted from the program.
If someone comes into my business and says they are a Chamber member, but does not have the M2M Key Tag with them, what should I do?
That is your decision. You are not obliged to provide them with your agreed discount/benefit. Here is a sample image of the Key Tag:
