Marketing Opportunities

The Ellsworth Area Chamber is a powerful tool in helping you promote your business and events all year round.   We have several different marketing opportunities for our members to be able to take advantage of.   From our website,  to our guidebook you can be sure that you will reach the customers you need at a price you can afford.


officeUse Shelves for advertising? Sure, why not?  The information center is a very busy place with people from all over stopping in to either chat, to get information or to find their way.  The Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce has marketing opportunities for members to feature their products right here where there is plenty of foot traffic.  Visitors to the information center will look everything over on the walls and in the glass cases and will ask us where they can find the business represented and we are happy to send them on their way right to your doorstep. Call 667-5584 to learn more.

Cost: $250 Glass Case per year | $300 Wall Shelf per year


Though our Tuesday enews is not the appropriate spot for you to advertise a sale it is a great spot for you to be able to connect with other members when participating in events, having an open house or customer appreciation, or offering classes.   There is no cost related to this as it is part of your membership.  We can’t get you in every single week, because we have to be fair to other members, but it is a great option for you to just the word out when something special is going on. Call 667-5584 with your enews stories.

Enhance Your Directory Listing

Our website offers many popular features for our members.  Add your events to our online calendar, make changes to your directory listing to reflect changes in your business, keep other members and the public up-to-date with what’s going on by sending updates to our Member News.

You can enhance your directory listing making it your own “mini webpage”  where you can tell potential customers your story, add pictures and a video to give them more opportunity to find you.  This enhanced directory bumps your listing to the top of the category and region pages as well as puts your logo on the home page scrolling at the bottom. Enhance your directory listing by calling 667-5584.

Cost: $150 per year 

Banner Advertising

Want to make sure that you are really noticed?  Our Banner advertising on our website is sure to attract attention to your business!  Ads rotate on almost every page of our website.  They are clear and easy to see.  Want to really impress?  Embed a video directly in your ad for that extra punch. Get your business noticed by calling 667-5584.

Cost: $175 per year | Production Cost: $100 per ad

Member News Newsletter

Want to reach out to other members of the Chamber?  Our newsletter goes out at the beginning of each month filled with news of our members, information on upcoming events and a word or two from the chamber.  Member businesses and their employees read this each month so why not advertise directly to them?  One low price gets your ad in 12 issues that you can change up anytime you’d like!   Give Kelley Wescott a call at 667-2576 to ask her how you can make it in the next Member News! 


Maine’s BEST Regional Guide is a hot commodity beginning in April.  That is when our phone starts ringing and the emails start coming in for requests for the newest edition of our guidebook.  Thousands get mailed in a season but we also will distribute the Guide to information centers and chambers from Boston to Eastport and all points in between.  40,000 copies will find their way into the hands of visitors and locals alike thanks to the business directory that lists each and every member including their phone number, our calendar of events, tide chart , and more.  Even other chamber offices will tell us that ours is the very first one that folks will pick up thanks to its compact size, maps and coverage of the entire region.  Want to make sure that you are included in the next edition?  Make sure you hurry because the deadline for space is coming up the end of November.  Give us a call at 667-5584 and reserve your space today!
