The Chamber Netwalking Group Returns on March 11th at 12!
Socialize with fellow business people, get a little exercise and have fun!

Since we can't meet indoors for Luncheons, the Chamber started a new program to bring people together safely.

We will met at Hook Creek Lake in Cheesequake Park (weather permitting). All levels of hiking ability are welcome. It is a great networking opportunity, great exercise for your body and great for your mind to get some fresh air (all for free). 

You must register ahead:
Please register so we know who to expect, and so you can be kept up to date on exactly where to meet, the weather, what to wear, etc. Also, we will ask you to sign a waiver that will be emailed to you.
All are welcome! To register or find out more: 
Email, call 732-290-1125 or register online

Angry Apples Marketing
Angry Apples Marketing is a boutique agency that specializes in digital marketing. We are a bold and versatile company that aims to create the most effective marketing strategy from scratch for new clients and to maximize pre-existing campaigns.

We particularly care about helping small businesses thrive through effective marketing strategies. Angry Apples started after a small business came to us disappointed due to failed marketing techniques. Convinced we could do better than what the competition was offering, we initiated several strategies and aggressive campaigns and have continued to grow ever since.

We have been the driving force behind several successful business campaigns in various marketing verticals, and each of these businesses can attest to Angry Apples’ winning strategies, team effort, and our hands-on, personal approach.

We recently moved from NYC to Matawan and are very excited to meet other local businesses and grow together!
