Tourism & Marketing 

Succeed in Marketing Your Business

The members of The McGregor & Marquette Chamber of Commerce believe that solid and strong marketing is crucial to the development and success of a business. We know that tourism is an important factor in economic development. Therefore; it is in the main interest of the chamber to promote tourism to the community and local businesses. 

What are some of the ways the chamber encourages tourism? The chamber places community ads in national publications as well as encourages a strong web presence. We have increased our social media advertising to keep with the changes in today’s means of advertising. Over 3,000 information requests were received by the chamber last year alone and our website visits continue to grow. 

New and Improved Digital Presence

We have recently updated our website to encourage a stronger SEO and presence on the internet. It is important to the Chamber to keep with the growing trends and algorithms of Google and the other search engines so that our community and its business are being properly displayed and represented on the web.
