Five things to love about YourMembership AMS

As if the fact that it’s all-in-one weren’t enough reason to love YourMembership AMS, here are five more things that clients love about it:

1. Support – when and how you need it

Even if your software is easy to use, sometimes you need some extra help. YourMembership offers support in multiple ways to ensure you have access to the type of support you need when you need it. Support options include: Live daily chats and Q&A sessions A robust community of YourMembership administrators that share learnings and creative solutions to challenges that all associations face A support team that’s ready to step in when you need specific help

 

2. Tools to drive new revenue streams

There comes a point in every association’s life when there’s a need to increase revenue. One of the big challenges is that you don’t want to turn off prospective and renewing members by simply raising the cost of membership dues. YourMembership AMS can help. Here are examples of ways associations use YourMembership association management software to boost non-dues revenue:

Set up an online store – YourMembership AMS includes e-commerce and online store functionality that makes it easy to accept donations and sell store items. You can sell everything from sponsorships and branded merchandise to event registrations, donations, and other non-dues items. Buyers will appreciate having a familiar shopping experience and a convenient way to pay.

  • Sell advertising – You can sell ads for your website and member directory, member newsletter, event programs, and more. For example, using YourMembership membership directory functionality, which includes ad space capabilities, you can easily place companies’ banner ads in multiple locations.
  • Offer an online career center – Using YM Careers job board software by Community Brands, which is built for associations and integrates with YourMembership AMS, you can easily build a robust online career center. An online career center is a one-stop place for your members and prospective members to find job opportunities and career development resources. By offering these benefits that members seek, you can attract more members, improve member retention, and increase non-dues revenue by offering employers the option to pay to maximize exposure of their job postings.
  • Offer more learning opportunities – You can use Freestone learning management system (LMS) by Community Brands to deliver great educational content more efficiently. It integrates with YourMembership AMS to help you organize content and deliver a modern online continuing education experience.

For example, with Freestone and YourMembership, you can offer educational content from your in-person events through an online experience, allowing you to stretch your investment in on-site content further. Offering online learning experiences will help your organization bring in revenue that you otherwise would not capture from members who are unable to attend your in-person events.

 

3. Reduced technology costs

Moving to an all-in-one AMS solution like YourMembership reduces the number of systems you must pay for and maintain. Also, because YourMembership is hosted in the cloud, you don’t have to install software or pay for costly upgrades – it’s all included in the annual price. Another thing: You don’t need to pay for a techie to manage YourMembership. It’s easy to use, and the YourMembership team guides you through setup of your database and launches your system, so there’s no need to understand software coding or how databases work.

 

4. A better member experience

Here are just a few of the ways YourMembership helps you improve the member experience:

  • Auto-renewal – This might sound simple (because it is!), but offering members an auto-renewal option for their membership gives members a convenient way to keep their membership current so that they don’t miss out on member benefits. (It also helps to increase your member renewal rate!) YourMembership supports auto-renewals and offers account updater functionality, which ensures that your recurring revenue remains intact even if your members’ card information changes.
  • Online member community – Online community functionality is built into YourMembership AMS to help you easily engage and connect members online. You can encourage member engagement by setting up discussion groups, watch what members are talking about to better understand what they want, post important content, and highlight key benefits such as your association’s events, educational program, and career center.
  • End-to-end event management – Events play an important role in most associations. YourMembership AMS helps you elevate the event experience for your members with tools to handle everything smoothly – from event registration, session management, and a mobile app to CE credits and badge printing.

 

5. Tools that make you look good

YourMembership includes capabilities that make you more efficient and give you greater insight into your membership:

  • Process automation – YourMembership AMS gives you an easy-to-use interface and simple workflows to streamline day-to-day operations. You can do things such as schedule automatic email renewal reminders and offer members the option of automatic credit card renewal.
  • Reporting and dashboards – You can quickly gain visibility to member growth, retention rates, engagement scores, and more, so you can make data-driven decisions to move your organization forward.
  • Advanced data analytics – YourMembership offers data analytics functionality to give your staff instant access to high-quality, interactive, and visual data. It gives you insights into your data to help you uncover trends and find new opportunities for growth.
