Site Profile – another great tool for Chamber members and entrepreneurs

Site Profile, another Great Tool for Chamber Members and Entrepreneurs.

The McAllen Chamber of Commerce is pleased to offer a free tool to our Chamber Members and entrepreneurs that are considering expanding or growing in McAllen. SizeUp McAllen (www.sizeup.mcallen.org), a free business intelligence tool designed to help all businesses grow. SizeUp McAllen shows businesses how to make more money, outperform their competition, and find the best places to advertise. The tool also provides many of the same demographic, industry, geographic, business, transportation, and cost-of-business data that large corporations use, but provides it at no cost, using powerful analytic search tools to enable all businesses to make smarter decisions.

“Services such as SizeUp McAllen are most successful when they are implemented to leverage the maximum value for your organization” said Ivan Gonzalez , Vice President of Business Development and Governmental Affairs for the McAllen Chamber of Commerce.

SizeUp provides three core features that enable business owners to make more intelligent decisions:

: Executives can map where competitors, customers, and suppliers are located, and can use the map to isolate areas with many potential customers but little competition.

Benchmark a specific business: Entrepreneurs can see how their business “sizes up” by comparing its performance to all competitors in the industry. This tool enables businesses to isolate areas for improvement and find ways to save money.

Find the best places to advertise: Business owners can identify areas with the highest total or average revenue for an industry, the most underserved markets, and they can create custom demographic and business reports.

“SizeUp McAllen is unique among business intelligence tools in that it provides competitive information with spatial analysis and mapping capabilities,” said Gonzalez. “Only SizeUp McAllen empowers its users in this hyper-local way, allowing businesses to see other industry players, customers and suppliers on an interactive map. And unlike expensive traditional research tools, our business intelligence is free for our Chamber Members.”

This service is free for Chamber Members or business that are considering locating or growing in McAllen. To request more information, please contact Ivan Gonzalez at (956) 682-2871 or igonzalez@mcallenchamber.com or Michelle Rodriguez at mrodriguez@mcallenchamber.com
