What are trade associations?
Trade associations, by definition, sit at the heart of their industry. They are often seen as the voice of the industry, representing thousands of individuals and businesses and acting as a key point of contact for governments. As such, joining a good trade association can bring you a host of benefits that can make a real difference to the way you work and also how your customers perceive you.
What’s in it for me?
While the specific benefits gained from each association will differ – there are a number of common threads. One of the most important of these is the enhanced credibility you’ll get with customers. Membership of key organisations is often seen as a badge of quality that people can trust. This is due to the stringent standards and codes of practice you often need to follow to qualify for inclusion. And it’s worth it – being able to display the recognised mark of a respected industry institution works wonders for how your business is perceived. It’s like being recommended by a trusted friend.
