Advertising Opportunities

Whatever size business or budget, The Chamber offers incredible advertising and marketing opportunities!

   Advertise on The Chamber Website

The Chamber website is one of the most highly trafficked sites in Bloomington.  Why?  Because visitors know that the information they need will be there, and will be accurate.  Whether it's a life long resident, a new family moving into town, students and their parents trying to find services while going to school here, or  an out-of-town guest coming for a visit - The Chamber is the most trusted source for information.

To schedule an appointment with our advertising partner, Weblink International, fill out this
