Adfuel Media Inc - Save-A-Buck App


AdFuel Media Inc., a Chamber member, is providing every Chamber member with our Save-A-Buck mobile app (or it's sister mobile app, Flavours, if you are a restaurant, winery, brewery, food purveyor etc.) to make it easier (and more likely) for tourists and locals to do business with you.
AdFuel has led the way for the past 18 years in enabling local businesses to engage profitably with the 14 million + annual visitors to Niagara Region as well as with a thriving local community.They want to provide all Chamber Members with the same advantages.
When tourists arrive in your area, it is desirable that they spend as much money as possible with local businesses while they are here. And it's equally important for locals to be able to easily identify, access and visit the right businesses to meet their needs.
The app provides these potential clients a comprehensive mobile guide in the palm their hands. It increases awareness of your business and works effectively to drive more revenue for you.
The App - A Few Facts
Although the app is called Save-A-Buck. There is no requirement to discount the products or services of a listed business. The name references the fact that users will be able to find the appropriate business for their requirement with a minimum of hassle, thus saving them time and money. Restaurants and other food & wine-related businesses will be provided with a similar app called Flavours.
The apps provide several key advantages to facilitate spending locally:
  • To accelerate wide-spread use of the app by visitors and locals in Brockville, it will be publicized as follows:
    • AdFuel Media will use its AdFuel Location-Based Digital Advertising to hyper-target key areas in Brockville with information on the app and how to access and download it to their mobile devices
    • AdFuel Media will publicize the app's availability in Brockville on its own website
    • Both the Brockville Chamber and Brockville Tourism will publicize the app on their websites along with information on how to download it (from Apple or Android sites)
  • 14 million tourists visit Niagara Region annually. These visitors frequently travel to other tourism areas within Ontario. Members' listings will be visible to this large and affluent audience.
  • All listings for an entire city or region can be downloaded to end-users' mobile devices to avoid roaming charges.
  • Information is presented in a consistent format, increasing utility to end-users since they can easily find information on any listing.
  • Business owners can update their own information 24/7, to ensure current data is being displayed. You totally control your own listing.
Update: July 9, 2019
ADFUEL MEDIA INC., one of our members, has added a significant new feature, Geofencing, to their Save-A-Buck business listing app, which increases the value for each Chamber Member to $1,476.00. The app will still be free of charge to all Chamber members.
Geofencing will automatically send any offer you create on the app to anyone passing by your premises who has their cellphone switched on. You have complete control over your own offers.
Usernames and passwords will be distributed to all Chamber Members on Monday, July 15 and Tuesday, July 16, along with an easy-to-follow Users' Guide so each member can customize their own listing specific to their business. We will also provide you with a contact for any questions you may have.
The total value to Chamber Members is approximately $470,000.00.
We would request that Members try to complete their listing updates within two weeks of receipt of their usernames and passwords, as we will begin publicizing the app to end-users at that time. These prospective clients will be much more likely to do business with your company if your listings are up-to-date with accurate information.

Budget 2019 Strikes Right Balance for Business Community

Budget 2019 Strikes Right Balance for Business Community

Brockville/ April 12, 2019 – Today, the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce, Pamela Robertson Executive Director and Rocco Rossi, President and CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce released the following statement in response to the 2019 Ontario Budget, “Protecting What Matters Most.

“Our message to the government in advance of Budget 2019 had been clear: bring down the deficit, focus on competitive taxation, and choose strategic investments that contribute to Ontario’s long-term economic growth. We are encouraged by the robust plan for returning the Province to a balanced budget, including meaningful action to improve government accountability. This Budget is focused on spending smarter rather than resorting to austerity measures,” said Rocco Rossi, President and CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce.

“The Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce and Ontario Chamber of Commerce are pleased to see that the Government of Ontario heard the message of the Ontario Chamber Network and is taking reasonable steps to build a stronger Ontario. Their balance of fiscal sustainability and critical investments in skills and infrastructure will promote long-term economic growth. The proposed investments in broadband infrastructure and skills development, especially, will create real value for Ontarians.

“Some key measures in Budget 2019 supported by the Ontario business community include:

  • Skills and workforce development: With 75 percent of OCC members stating the ability to recruit and retain talent is a critical factor to their competitiveness, Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce and OCC have long called on the government to address the province’s skills mismatch. Modernizing Ontario’s apprenticeship system, reforming skills and employment training programs, and improving the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program are all critical steps to create the workforce of the future.
  • Infrastructure: The Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce and the OCC are pleased by the government’s $315 million investment in critical broadband and cellular infrastructure over the next five years. Access to high-speed internet is a basic requirement of the 21st century economy, much like roads, bridges, and electricity. Regarding the government’s planned investments of $14.7 billion in the province’s infrastructure over the next ten years, the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce and OCC hope to see more details on the plan. The Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce and OCC will continue to press the government to address the province’s infrastructure deficit.
  • Competitive taxation: Building a more competitive tax environment is critical to fueling investment, innovation, and economic growth across Ontario, particularly in times of fiscal limitation. The Ontario Job Creation Investment Incentive will provide much-needed tax relief for industry while promoting investment and job growth. The Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce and OCC also continue to encourage the government to help small businesses scale-up by creating a variable small business tax rate.

 “With the government already moving swiftly with a number of measures aimed at reducing red tape and growing the economy such as the Making Ontario Open for Business Act, 2018, the Access to Natural Gas Act, 2018, and the Restoring Ontario's Competitiveness Act, 2019, today’s Budget will help to ensure Ontario businesses have as many opportunities as possible to compete on the global stage,” added Pamela Robertson Executive Director of the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce.
