Marketing

Now, more than ever.  As our community grapples with the enduring impact of COVID-19 and The Pause, our Marketing and Communications tools will deliver more value than ever for business and consumers acclimating to their New Normal.

*  *  *

Connection.  Collaboration.  Story-telling.  Our members use our communication tools in various ways to stay informed, connect with others and build their brand in the eyes of other members, visitors and guests.

The Megaphone is our bi-monthly advertising e-communication.  Member businesses use this platform to announce sales, launch new products or offerings and build visibility for their special events.

@113 is our Membership Newsletter.  Named for our center-city location, it speaks to what's happening in and around our office; program announcements, event updates and timely opportunities.  Each edition of @113 includes a Fortnightly Feature - a free peak at a member business.

Find_It is our walk-around guide and map of Canandaigua, from Fort Hill Performing Arts Center on N. Main Street, through downtown to the pier; east on Lakeshore Dr. to CMAC and Finger Lakes Community College, circling back on Eastern Boulevard.  Its primary audience is travelers and tourists.

ONCanandaigua is a lifestyle magazine and community guide; it tells the story of our natural beauty, cultural assets, talented people and vibrant food, beverage and hospitality marketplace.  It also includes a comprehensive member list and paid advertisements that help inform and inspire individuals considering our community as a place to live, work or grow a business.

Other opportunities to grow your business and your brand include single-use all-member mailing labels, annual passes for our after-hours monthly mixers and room rental for one-on-one client meetings, team-building or seminar-style training for up to 16 people.
