Anyone in the ACS? How can I use it to expand my business?


Would anyone here happen to be a member of the American Chemical Society? I assume some users on here are members.
Any ideas for how I could use it to spread the word about my scientific glassblowing business? Trying to figure it out, but there's a lot to sort through.

I am a member, but short of buying ads in C&EN, I’m not sure there’s anything that they can do to help you grow. There may be benefits for businesses that I’m not aware of though.

I am also a member of ACS (>50yrs). I agree with Texium that there proably isn't any direct way for ACS to be of much use. If you are not a member, perhaps you could join. There is a small business section/division which may be of use for help or networking.

Have you investigated advertising in a local ACS section newsletter? There are several west coast sections which might be venues for an advertisement. Also you might attend a regional ACS meeting, for example the Pacific Northwest region, where you might be able to set up a vendor table. Not sure how that works at the regional level.

That's about all I can think of on the fly. I will think some more about this.

ACS = Journal Advertisements.
The other way to grow your business is to go to local universities and meet with the chemistry department heads.
Many have their own in house glass blowers but many are retiring so they may be interested in farming out custom work.
You may also scout out research labs, finding good glass blowers is hard so there are customers out there.
Given your location you may also inquire at cannabis glassware shops.
They often get inquiries about custom lab glass they really aren't set up to handle and can send it your way.
Large scale glass extractors are big in that industry.

Yeah I have plans to do all those things, Macckone. Gonna go on a little university tour when school starts up again soon. Hadn't thought about scouting out individual research labs though. Good idea! I also plan to attend some cannabis trade shows to talk to some manufactures of bigger processing equipment.
I've wanted to reach out to cannabis processors in Washington (those that make things like extracts and eddibles) to see if I can fix anything or make anything for them, as I've done some repair work of rotovaps for some companies that have reached out to me. It just feels like emailing doesn't make it to the right person and they obviously aren't gonna put their address online and many don't include a phone number. What do ya do?

All canabis manufacturers have to be registered with the state. There is probably a list online somewhere.
