The Newsletter of the West Shore Chamber of Commerce
A Message from Kathleen M. Mangan
Chamber President & CEO
I don’t believe there are many who are regretting the close of 2009
and not looking forward to a brighter outlook for 2010. This new year
brings with it a renewed hope for an improved economy, balanced
with a continued sense of caution in our financial decision making.
The past year’s economic climate may have a bright side, however.
Many have learned to do more with less, have reevaluated their
priorities and will likely view future prosperity through different eyes,
now having experienced this lean time.
While our challenges continue, the West Shore Chamber of Commerce is positioning
itself to be a “can’t do without” resource to you and your business.
As you probably know by now, the Board of Directors of the Chamber has developed
and approved a comprehensive three-year strategic plan that will serve as my road map
over the next several years. The Board, committees and staff are focused on incorporating
this new direction into each phase of our work, and we are already seeing the impact this
plan will have. For instance, we now have a new organizational structure from the Board
leadership to staff levels that I believe will increase our efficiency and effectiveness in serving
our membership. We will conduct benchmarking activities, investigate new and creative
funding streams, and identify and incorporate best practices into our daily operations.
My goal is to make the Chamber as pro-active as possible to the needs of our
membership. The Chamber should serve as a source of information and resources to
businesses of all sizes, and I plan to continue the great work of those who preceded me
in doing all we can to be that source. There are many interesting and complex issues on
the horizon, and I believe the Chamber will have an active role in identifying those issues,
gathering the data needed by our membership, and providing that information to our
membership, so they may utilize it for the benefit of their individual business needs.
This will be an exciting and challenging time, and I hope you will consider what
role you would like to play in it. I encourage you to get involved, whether it’s through
committee participation, sponsorship, or active involvement in one of the many
programs offered through the Chamber.
Chamber to Host Winter Open House
The West Shore Chamber of Commerce invites you to a Winter Open House on February
18 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Chamber office. Enjoy a wonderful afternoon of
quality networking with fellow Chamber members, staff and new President & CEO
Kathleen M. Mangan. A delicious lunch will be provided by The Lion’s Den Catering, a

Membership Director Profile: Tom Reed
In January, the Chamber welcomed Tom Reed as Membership
Director. Tom accepted the position because he believes “very
strongly in the benefits of an involved member of the Chamber of
Commerce,” and he wants to “help others benefit from membership
and being involved”. Tom states that some of the great ways the
Chamber benefits members are “mixers, committees, and the
monitoring of state or federal regulation affecting businesses”.
A lifelong resident of central Pennsylvania, Tom has had
relationships with Chambers for quite some time. He first became
involved in the West Shore Chamber as a general manager for the
Brenner family of dealerships. When he opened his own business,
Keystone Business Coaching, he joined the West Shore Chamber. As a member, Tom
found mixers to be one of the most profitable Chamber benefits. Tom has received many
referrals and great advice from members of the Chamber as a business owner, and now
wants to return the favor and “help others to achieve what they got in business for, and
to show them how the Chamber can help”.
If you would like to get in touch with Tom to ask questions about the benefits of your
Chamber membership, or know someone who would benefit from Chamber membership,
you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 761-0702.

How to Double Your Direct Mail
Few mediums provide
the direct, personalized
approach of a well
But while direct
mail has repeatedly
proven itself, many
have ventured away from
These businesses are
missing out on valuable
opportunities, as their direct mail
woes are likely the result of a miscue
in execution. Direct mail is a misunderstood
medium, and taking the time to clear up common
misperceptions is well worth the effort.
Many business people feel that direct mail is a medium for
the masses, and sending out thousands of pieces to every
name you can buy will deliver results. This theory is poorly
guided, as it generally wastes lots of time and money.
Communicating a specific, targeted message to one
hundred prospects will always beat sending a general,
all-encompassing message to thousands. Therefore,
developing an effective direct mail campaign involves:
1. Defining your target, being very specific.
2. Cleaning your list to only those prospects that meet
demographic, geographic, and lifestyle criteria.
Cut as many entries as possible to form a
3. Creating your direct mail piece with your specific
target in mind. Cater your graphics, copy and
call-to-action to the target you have identified.
Consider variable-data or variable graphic printing
for the ultimate customization.
4. Following-up with a call or e-mail. Since your list is
now much smaller, you can afford to give personal
attention to each name. If needed, break large
mailings into parts to allow for follow up work.
Integrate these four techniques into your direct mail
campaign, and you will discover the power of a direct,
personalized mail campaign.
