SolSuite is a web-based Association Management Software (AMS) solution that empowers business associations and organizations to help their members grow their businesses. It uses ecommerce, gift cards, automated marketing, and event management to help your members find new revenue and new customers. And that’s all on top of an AMS built from the lessons learned from years of developing similar projects. The result is SolSuite, designed with you in mind, to help you help your members, to help your team manage the organization.
Helping Your Members During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Many small businesses are unable to take advantage of sales and marketing tools to help them get through this pandemic. Things like gift cards, automated marketing, and events offer small businesses a way to create new streams of revenue. But many are not equipped with the right technology to do so. With the right AMS, chambers and other organizations can help their members and provide a real benefit in these uncertain times. After all, your goal as a membership association is to grow your own membership numbers by providing real value. Below are some benefits you can deliver with the right AMS:
- Gift Cards: Enable members to create and sell gift cards to their market and to other members.
- Marketing Campaigns: Provide members a simple way to promote their businesses with automated marketing campaigns.
- Special Offers Directory: Maybe you have a number of members who currently operate an ecommerce site, but you don’t have a good directory for them to list their products. Now you do, with the Special Offers Directory.
With these benefits, you’ll create a "Marketplace" that provides a simple way for your members to promote and grow their businesses.
It’s Also About the Success of Your Team
Membership Organizations often complain that their websites and software are cumbersome and difficult to manage. They spend a lot of time managing information. For example, when a member registers for an event, the association employees (or volunteers) then take time to copy/paste that information into other systems. Your AMS should handle that for you and be tied right into your website and other systems. With a solution like SolSuite, you get:
- Contact Management: With built-in contact management features as well as integrations with popular CRMs (Customer Relationship Management software), you’ll stay in touch with members and keep your membership roles growing.
- Event Management: Your events (including virtual events these days) are all about membership development. You need a way to easily manage and promote your events.
- Simple Integration: Many AMS solutions do it all. However, that can be a problem. You rely on regular messaging from both transactional and marketing emails. If those come from the same server, they’re more likely to get tagged as spam. It works much better to integrate your solution to existing software, such as email marketing solutions.
- Be The Source of Information: Mailchimp provides a simple RSS-to-Email campaign type that lets you send emails on a schedule when something new is published to a website. Your AMS can be a source of this information and automate your marketing communications.
- Wordpress Plugin: Most membership sites out there are built on Wordpress. Therefore, it's essential to have a Wordpress plugin for the AMS that incorporates external data and offers easy integration with existing third-party software.
The Partner Manager: Treat Your Members Like Partners
Your Association Management Software should help you manage your investors -- your members. You may refer to these individuals and companies as sponsors, members, or partners. Ultimately, you rely on investment through sponsorships, memberships, and/or partnerships. That is why an AMS like SolSuite needs to simplify things for your membership team. The Partner Manager module of SolSuite makes that whole task simple.
