A user-centric web strategy leads to happier members and decreases support requests.
Website usability, membership retention, increasing member engagement and loyalty, and recruiting new members are all crucial for an association. An easy-to-use and highly functional website creates a favorable first impression with visitors and improves the likelihood that members will self-service online. Streamlined web functionality decreases the support that an association must provide and allows you to focus on efforts that add value to both members and the organization. Membership applications, dues payment, event registration, and access to member-only content must balance ease-of-use and functional requirements.
A thoughtful website with unique content creates credibility for your organization and trust among members and industry peers. A complementary digital strategy will amplify your website’s content and functionality through increased awareness and timely communication of engagement opportunities. We work with our association clients to drill down on member demographics and understand business and communication goals to create marketing strategies that are tuned to members and the industries that they work in — who are they, what problems they commonly encounter, and how your association can aid their professional performance and development.
Spinutech’s digital marketing and web development team is keenly aware of the challenges faced by member-driven organizations and understands that one-size-fits-all marketing solutions rarely succeed. Our team of professionals will craft an association marketing strategy that is focused on your members and your priorities.
Streamlined Association Management System
An association website is a central hub and information gateway for industry professionals, members, and the general public. Accommodating this diverse audience requires streamlined web design, high-quality and unique content, and functionality that allows users to self-service. Content must be supported with intuitive navigation and functionality supported by a tightly integrated Association Management System (AMS).
Spinutech’s AMS is the primary back-office system used by many of our association clients. It allows prospects and members to join, renew their dues, register for events, update their profile, and access member-only content through the website’s front-end. The back-office aspects of the system allow association staff and volunteers to manage membership data, maintain event rosters, generate reports and data exports, and automate an association’s operations.
Unlike a third-party AMS, our solution is built from scratch with the goal of seamless design and technical integration with your website. Our user-centric and custom approach results in a solution that is optimized for your organization and its members.
Grow Association Membership and Increase Event Registrations
Marketing collateral and web content, created through an SEO and content strategy, aimed at prospective members, potential event registrants, and other target audiences is a smart investment. Paid search and social campaigns amplify that content and attract interest from audiences that might not otherwise cross paths with your organization.
A social media strategy can be used to cultivate community awareness. And, email marketing strategies can be used to disseminate email content so that members remain engaged.
Build Association Authority
Trust and reputation are paramount for an association's sustainability and continued growth. When prospects or members search for industry-related content, your organization’s website should appear high on search result pages. Spinutech specializes in content marketing that incorporates SEO research for consistent, organic traffic.
Many associations have a wide reach with chapters throughout the country, if not the globe. Our strategists optimize Google My Business (GMB) descriptions and apply local SEO best practices to keep your organization relevant in local search results too.
