The Georgia Commerce Club, an interactive/commerce club, has rapidly grown to over 1,000 online members in just ten short months. Its dynamic design and content has enabled Georgia residents to network and grow their business simultaneously.

Grayson, GEORGIA – The Georgia Commerce Club has garnered over 1,000 registered online members since its inception about ten months ago. It offers complete community involvement and integration by combining social media and business networking.

Damon Ladd-Thomas, an Investment Advisor Representative with NEXT Financial Group, Inc., member FINRA/SIPC, and his wife Tatyana labored to create a free chamber/commerce club in Georgia that supports small businesses by letting registered users interact and form mutually beneficial partnerships. Their efforts have bore fruit as the Georgia Commerce Club has amassed over 1,000 online members, 1500 Facebook fans and 1,600 Twitter followers @GACommerceClub. The highly active website, for all things commerce, has almost 40 weekly events on the community calendar for users to attend and interact with one another.

The “new kid” on the block, at its current pace, is outperforming other more established chamber and business groups in Georgia. “It’s hard to believe this all began with nothing, zero support from any government establishment, zero dollars for advertising, marketing and even salaries. All we started with was our vision combined with the good-will businesses and volunteers wanting to build a better community,” said Damon. “We founded this website on the free “Peachseed” membership and it is our gift to the business community. I urge all business owners to take advantage of it.”

According to www.georgiacommerceclub.org, free membership boasts a multitude of benefits such as a profile, unlimited commercial listings, a group page, community calendar, live chat, business locator and a job/resume board among other things.

Damon Ladd-Thomas Wealth Management is a financial services firm focused on retirement for businesses and their owners. Damon, a 17-year veteran in the industry, specializes in business savings, tax strategy, succession, liquidation, and risk management. He is also a founder of the Florida Commerce Club, and Mike’s Ad Shop, a marketing advocacy group for small businesses.
