Your Member Directory - Is it Public or Private?

Public directories are a great resource for networking   Public directories are a great resource for networking within an industry or region and will generate the most exposure for your members. However, not all organizations want to share their membership data with everyone. If your membership prefers networking as a benefit of membership, you can secure access based on active membership status. Or even lock down visibility to only the site administrators for complete privacy.      Check out your options under Membership Settings to determine the right degree of access for your group.   And remind your members that they can opt of the member directory at any time by the selections in their personal profile.      

Improve Membership Retention Rates with Auto-renewal

 Turn on the auto-renewal option on your website and remove the obstacle to membership renewal   Members will set up the auto-renewal feature upon joining or renewing to have their card charged at the end of the membership cycle, easily maintaining their membership status. Updates to the selected card or the subscription can be made directly from the member profile at any time.   Auto-renewal is currently available for websites using Stripe or Authorize.net as their merchant account.         Read more in our help-file about auto-renewal with Stripe      

Finding the Sweet Spot on Membership Levels

Trying to balance the cost of membership against the benefits offered can be tricky.   It's why most associations offer multiple levels of membership, hoping to find one that fits a prospective member's objectives and budget. To find out if you are hitting the sweet spot of mutual value, look at the reports on your Tendenci website that provide insightful information about your membership.   Membership by Type  See where the bulk of your members join. Should we add another level above the bottom tier with a slight price bump?       Invoices See where the money is coming from with a customizable invoicing report. Do we reduce overall membership dues but increase the membership price for events?           Members by Company See if a few major corporations are being represented. Should we start a …

Joy and happiness from Tendenci to you

              Greetings Tendenci Community! Hope everyone's holiday season is off to a wonderful start! As we roll toward the end of 2016 - and what a year it has been! -  we'd like to leave you with some things to think about as you look forward to the new year. What are your plans for growth? And how can your website help you reach your goals? Increasing Donations through Membership Programs Finding and retaining long-term donors is critical to any development program. Nonprofits in the performing and visual arts have historically counted on membership programs to build their donor communities and engage with their supporters throughout the year.
