Deals in the Willamette Valley
Deal programs such as Groupon are growing in popularity. Businesses offer a discount in exchange for exclusive promotion to a responsive list of consumers who have opted in to the daily emails. The list owners generally share a percentage of sales with the business owner. The rest of the details vary by provider. Here are a few in the Salem area:
Member Marketplace is the Salem Chamber's portal for posting deals, making requests and saving money. Member businesses can post special offers, but anyone can reserve offers or make requests for members to respond to. All sales revenue stays with the business. Check out the Member Marketplace page to learn more and get started! Sponsored by Maps Credit Union.
Half Price Salem
AM 1430 KYKN Radio was first in the Salem area to launch a deal program. Originally called KYKN Half Price Deals, Half Price Salem offers personal service and highly responsive buyers. While most deal programs offer a percentage of sales to the business fulfilling the deal, Half Price Salem offers radio advertising on KYKN. A small percentage of sales from HalfPriceSalem.com goes to support the Salem Chamber. Sign up to receive these deals, or contact AM 1430 KYKN for more information.
Deal Chicken hatches new deals daily as a local service of the Statesman Journal. StatesmanJournal.com boasts the region's highest trafficked website, so Deal Chicken provides a lot of eyeballs on your business by email and click.

The Salem Chamber's Agricultural Team is made up of 14 active Chamber members who are responsible for addressing issues pertaining to the agricultural community and coordinating the annual SAIF Agri-Business Banquet at the Salem Conference Center in January.
The Ag Team is also the driving force of the annual Chamber Agricultural Tour. The date of the Ag Tour is set around the points of interest of the tour and appropriate harvest times. Please refer to the Annual Special Events page for updates and tour schedule.
There are no upfront costs. It is a risk free advertising/marketing program. We make a percentage of every deal sold, so we only make money when you make money.
The Business Rocks luncheon wraps up the Salem Chamber's fiscal year with the installation of the new President and recognition of Chamber Gems and Volunteer Team Leaders. Business Rocks is held in June at the Salem Conference Center as part of our Luncheon Series.
