Efficiency in Cloud Solutions Can Save Your Organisation in Time or Money

Membership organisations may be able to save money by having the right processes in place.  They may also be able to save time by not having to switch from one solution to another to complete a task.  All the little bits can actually add up to quite a substantial amount.
A Recent Article from Association Now talks about how easy hidden costs can add up - in this instance they highlight the gain made by all those little amounts as a really good example of how much it can add up to.  In ‘The Hidden Costs of Inefficiency’ Ernie Smith concludes that inefficiencies are a major money maker if you are the one offering the inefficient service.

How to Send Targeted Newsletters Increasing Member Engagement

Newsletters are a popular way to communicate with your members, but there is a right and wrong way!
The challenge many associations are faced with is providing news that keeps all members interested and engaged. Sure there will always be General Industry News but more often than not you might have news that is relevant only to a small percentage of your audience. You’ll want to send it teveryone? If you do that you risk sending too much information that most won’t read and you’ll run the risk of boring your audience and ultimately becoming irrelevant.

Top Tips for Running a Webinar for Associations

A well run, smart webinar is a powerful content marketing tool. If you make a connection with each audience member through presenting an organised and content rich webinar you will be on your way to becoming an expert in your field.
