How Does Membership Management Software Help?
By automating processes, our membership management features help administrators spend less time managing their member data. Administrators enjoy the ability to manage their membership online, increased interaction between members and have more timely communication.
The website also makes automatic accounting entries as activity occurs on the website. This also updates financial reports. No more dealing with interfaces and exporting data as you try to keep systems in sync. This is the realization that makes administrators more efficient and allows us to automate tasks that matter most.
Our membership interaction features are designed to bring your members together. Profile details are shared in the directory, unwanted items find new homes in the classifieds and the message board keeps the discussion going. All designed to create a positive experience for members of your organization.
How can you help members feel like members?
Keep members thinking about how they can be involved in your association by posting events on your website. Our membership management software features, such as Upcoming Events and Calendar, allow the details of each event to be listed on your website in chronological order. Individual events can also tie into our RSVP feature so that members can indicate if they are or are not attending the event. For members attending the event, custom questions help management gather the additional information that they need from each member.
Periodic newsletters used to be a primary way of keeping the association's members informed. Unfortunately, newsletters are not timely and take a lot of effort to create and distribute. Membership websites have simplified communication because information can be immediately shared with members as the information is available. All of our software features help managers add content to the website by using our non-technical tools.
Regardless of how much information is posted on the website, if members do not visit the website the information will not be seen. One solution is for managers to send mass emails and text messages to members through the website. This informs members about the latest news and encourages them to visit the website for more details.
A lot of time can be spent reminding members that their membership renewal date is coming up and how much they owe. We have automated this process with scheduled renewal reminders and easy online payments. Managers can create multiple email messages and schedule each message to be automatically sent a predetermined number of days before or after the member's renewal date. When a member is ready to renew, they can view their renewal invoice and make the payment directly through the website. The website also displays a message to remind the member that their renewal is coming up. This eliminates the biggest excuses for why members do not renew their membership.
