President's Update August 30, 2020

Hello to All Our Members.

If driving into Warwick via the northern entrance you will see the new skins are going up on the billboard near Glengallan Road. The new website (www.warwickqld.com.au) is listed on the billboard. It will be launched officially on 12 October at the General Meeting but is live now, so please take the time to have a look.

If you haven’t already provided a link and imagery for your business to be included on the website please do so ASAP.

Membership with Southern Queensland Country Tourism

Your Chamber Executive will soon be sending to all members, detailed information on membership of Southern Queensland Country Tourism (SQCT). Into the future, membership of the Chamber will automatically give you membership of SQCT and this will give you access to a treasure trove of information about who visits Warwick, where they are from, what they spend their money on, and where they spend it. This information is invaluable to everyone who is in business in Warwick and we hope you will take advantage of it to further develop your own marketing.

Secret Shopper

At our last Networking Breakfast there was much discussion about the need for a secret shopper. Well the secret shopper is now out there and will be undertaking secret shopping activities through to Christmas! More information will be provided at the upcoming General Meeting.

Data gathered by the secret shopper in each business will be confidential and communicated only to that business proprietor. Statistics from the secret shopper activities will be provided to all members and retained for use in future secret shopper initiatives.
