Get your organization online seamlessly with a member management solution
The Internet can seem like a daunting place as you consider moving your association online. Chances are, even if your group isn’t physically online, people are still talking about it online. That is why it is more essential than ever to go to where your members and prospects are, especially if you’re looking to attract millennials. This generation grew up with the world at their fingertips, and they may refuse to join your organization or sign up for an event if it’s not easy to do on the Internet.
You might ask yourself, “Ok, I’m ready to make the move but where do I begin?” That’s where we come in.
1. Find a member management solution that fits your organization
An organization is only as great as its members. In order for supporters to cooperate with your move online, they need to have the tools to communicate easily and effectively. That’s how a membership management solution can help. If you’re looking to build an online presence, you’ll want it all in one place. With memberplanet, you have your membership directory, marketing tools, and event and donation pages on one platform, making both group management and communication that much easier.
2. Get started on the platform
Once you create a free user account, the next step is to create your group. You can add your logo or design your look through memberplanet’s collection of images. Next, you’ll want to email your members, inviting them to join the group. Our platform provides you detailed reports on who received the invite, who has opened it, and who has joined.
3. Utilize the communication tools available to you
Start communicating regularly with your members, prospective members, and the wider online community. memberplanet makes this possible through both user-friendly e-newsletters and Broadcast, a feature that enables you to send out a quick message that will immediately text your members, alerting them to any time-sensitive information.
4. Broaden your horizons outside your membership base
Take your organization one step further by reaching those who are not (yet) members. Create event pages, fundraising forms, and e-newsletters with dedicated information for prospects. memberplanet makes it easy to share this marketing material across all social platforms and allows others to share it as well. Building an online presence has never been easier!
Moving your association from offline to online might seem like a difficult task, but it doesn’t have to be. That’s why our motto is “life simplified.” We strive to make this process as seamless and painless as possible. And nothing you create on memberplanet has to be permanent – it can always be updated and completed as your organization changes and evolves and, if you have more questions, you can reach out to us or find help under the Getting Started guide.
