The COVID-19 health crisis has caused many businesses to stop all on-premise service. Many are now offering to-go, delivery, curbside pick-up, gift cards, and more. The next two issues of the Boost Box will focus on COVID-19 Response to highlight businesses who are open and the ways to support them.
What is the Business Boost Box?
The Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce Business Boost Box is a themed digital monthly subscription eBox that showcases local businesses from the LBI Region who are Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce members.
How It Works
Each month subscribers will receive exclusive offers that can only be found in the Business Boost Box. An eco-friendly alternative to the traditional mailed subscription box service, Business Boost Box is 100% digital. Subscribers can take it anywhere with no fear of leaving a coupon at home or not having their deals when they need them. Best of all, the Business Boost Box is completely free! Simply register online today at visitLBIregion.com. Business Boost Box Subscription registration and details can be found here.
What is inside?
The Business Boost Box is a Monthly Subscription eBox that is emailed to subscribers interested in learning more about the LBI Region, businesses in the area and their offerings. The offers and deals in this box MUST be exclusive to the Chamber and the Business Boost Box. If you are currently sending out an offer or discount in your own eNewsletters, or mailing list the offers you submit to the Business Boost Box MUST be different and exclusive. It is important that our subscribers see new and exciting offers that only the Business Boost Box can give them. Subscribers get 12 emails per year, that is it, no spam or additional mailings.
