How to Successfully Distribute your Associations Content via Social Media

The way in which we use social media is evolving each day and estimates indicate within the near future the majority of adults will obtain their information from social media networks rather than search engines. This may already be the case for you whether you have realised it or not. Social media networks continue to grow in terms of users and reach and there is no doubt they will become a primary source of referral traffic to your website and blog.

Are you wanting to Increase your Membership Renewal Rates but not sure where to begin?

Member retention is a crucial aspect of any association and improving retention rates is on everyone’s to do list. The reason is simple with statistics and industry findings indicating that on average a business loses 50% of their customers every five years. This can also cost an organisation up to 7-10 times more than retaining existing members.

Not only are retention techniques important but new member recruitment is also vitally crucial.

Content is Key

Steps for Taking the Plunge Towards an Innovative Forward Thinking Association

Innovation is about having a new idea, device or process that is viewed as having a better solution to a problem that meets a new requirement or market need. Innovative ideas are being shared with us every day whether we realise it or not.

Associations and their members, sponsors, staff, committee and stakeholders face obstacles day in and day out and knowing the answer is not innovation. Rather innovation is all about asking the right questions.

How Using Drupal Software Benefits the Association Industry

Drupal is an open source content management platform that powers millions of websites and online applications. The framework is built, used and supported by an active and diverse community of people from all over the globe.

Drivers Enabling Organisational Change

One of the major challenges associations face is organisational change and knowing how to manage staff efficiently during a major transition. Enabling “forgotten” staff to be leaders is one of the steps that allows leadership from the back office.

Leadership is all about maximising the efforts of others towards a common goal, which is where the idea of encouraging leadership from the back office was established.

The Disruption of Digital Education

Traditionally, knowledge was only accessible to a privileged few and it was valued, protected, guarded and used only in controlled environments. Now with the development of the internet and mobile networks ‘Connect Communications’ emerged and has arguably disrupted the market for knowledge more harshly than other industries. The disruption continues and the potential effects on the institutionalised education have not yet been realised.

Why your Association’s Website should be using HTTPS for Security and Privacy

Does your association or Not-For-Profit organisation website currently offer encrypted HTTPS connections to members and web visitors? Are you using HTTPS by default for administration logins? These are important questions to ask yourself and if your answer is no or you are unsure you may be putting both your site and users at risk.

Privacy no Longer
