The Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce (BACC) offers numerous opportunities to reach new residents, market to members, and connect your company name and image to special events. Our advertising and sponsorship programs are affordable and cost-effective. They include:
- E-Blast Advertising to 18,000 Members and Contacts: Individual or shared e-blast ads send your message directly to our membership.
- Monday Email Newsletter Sponsorship Ad: Include your business ad on our popular Monday newsletter emailed to members. Because the weekly update includes important BACC and Member news, it is read and reviewed frequently!
- Membership Marketing Program: BACC members can advertise in our community publications such as our Regional Magazine, which is direct-mailed to as many as 21,000 businesses and residents in the 60010 area; and in our Community Guide, which is distributed to another 10,000 local residents. Both publications are published annually and are used throughout the year in our Welcome Neighbor bags.
- Website Advertising: Stand out from the competitors and run a banner ad on our website, which receives 3 million hits a year. Upgrade your free website business listing to a full dedicated webpage. Website advertising packages increase your presence on our website and are affordable!
- Welcome Neighbor Program: Advertise on a 4-color brochure BACC mails to the new residents that move into the 60010 zip code area each month. As an advertiser, you then receive an excel list each month of all new residents’ names and addresses to use for your own marketing purposes! You can also put a promotional item or brochure in our Welcome Neighbor Bags that new residents can pick up at the Barrington Library, Park District and BACC offices. This brochure is created annually.
- Sponsorship Opportunities: Connect your company name or image with a popular BACC event such as the Annual Gala, Golf Classic, Economic Summit, Spotlight on Barrington’s Stars or other event. Sponsorships range in price and give you prominent exposure with an event, such as program ads and event signage. Some levels of sponsorship include your company name and logo in hundreds of dollars’ worth of advertising in local newspapers and online news sites!
- Community Publications: BACC produces two important community resources, our Regional Magazine mailed to 20,000 and our Community Guide, delivered to 10,000. Advertising opportunities exist with each publication. The Magazine is delivered in August, and the Guide in January, so every six months we are in production on a new publication which will promote our membership to the community. Each publication has a one-year shelf life and is used as a community resource all year available in important locations throughout town, in our Welcome Neighbor bags, and in our Chamber offices. We also produce a Barrington Area Map with advertising opportunities. Call our Chamber office at (847) 381-2525 for more information.
