  • The Week Ahead: Click on this and it will stop raining

    A good blustery afternoon to you, Dear Reader,

    On day 335 of 2020, we take stock in where we are and where we’re going and who surrounds us. And while we know resiliency is an apt word (the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness), so is giving (providing love or other emotional support; caring.) 

    Speaking of which, tomorrow is #GivingTuesday. The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is touted as a "global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world,” and it’s a key day to show your support for our non-profits, if you are able. 

    Needs are high and thanks will be plentiful. Did you know more than 100 non-profits are members of the Chamber Collaborative? You can find them here. If your non-profit is participating in GivingTuesday, go ahead and tag https://www.facebook.com/PortsmouthChamber in your posts and we’ll share. 
    And now for, The Week Ahead: 

    Tuesday, 12/1, noon to 1 p.m., Online: Get Found in Google Search and Analyze your Data sponsored by TD Bank  and Germeroth Consulting & Creative. Learn the most important aspects of search engine optimization to make sure your business ranks for the searches that matter most. Find out what keywords to target and how to optimize your local SEO. Then use Google Analytics to decipher what your website visitors are doing on your site and what marketing channels are most effective.


    Wednesday, 12/2, 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., Online: Let’s Talk Tourism. A monthly gathering for Chamber members who are either in the hospitality industry or who have an interest in what the Chamber and the hospitality community are planning.
