SocialLink debuted at 2016 ASAE Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — YourMembership (YM), a leading cloud-based software provider for associations and member-based organizations worldwide, today announced the immediate availability of SocialLink—a new, game-changing feature and functionality that enhances association member communities powered by membership management software. YourMembership, the first to deliver an integrated social networking component as part of its membership management offering, provided fully-functional demonstrations of SocialLink August 14, 2016 and August 15, 2016 in booth 605 at the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) annual conference in the Salt Palace Convention Center. (The 2016 ASAE Annual Meeting and Exposition runs August 13 – 16 in Salt Lake City.)
YM’s SocialLink promises to help associations turn infrequent, episodic member engagement—the kind defined by members primarily paying association dues—into stronger member connections by delivering highly-personalized and relevant content, such as education, careers, information and industry news, in secure and private online social venues. SocialLink helps community administrators manage multiple, secure communities in a single association management platform by creating a tighter connection between member data and analytical administration tools within membership management systems.
“We’re excited about unveiling SocialLink at ASAE later this week, and making it available now for associations to start building for the future today,” said JP Guilbault, CEO of YourMembership. “SocialLink is meant for our present-day digital and social generation, and easily leapfrogs the community platforms associations are currently using. Our mission is simple. We aim to help associations make SocialLink a daily habit for both them and their members, thereby reversing the largely episodic and less frequent connections now taking place between associations and their members.”
Benefits of SocialLink
Member personalization and participation that increases value. Associations can elevate collaboration within communities and social networks by connecting their members to ideal discussions, education and messages, as well as networking and career opportunities. SocialLink aggregates content sources in a simple, single highly-personalized view found on a member’s feed, and delivers alerts and notifications to allow for easier engagement.
Episodic engagement becomes continuous participation. The flexible and easy-to-use desktop and mobile responsive design of SocialLink mimics the user interfaces of other popular social sites to allow members to share ideas, ask questions and network with peers and experts when they want, where they want and how they want. This naturally-intuitive format is convenient for finding information, onboarding members and creating high-level summaries of activities that enable users to quickly interact instead of manually seeking out opportunities.
Marketing communications that connect. Associations can improve their offers, campaigns and revenue with dynamic, highly-personalized social, web and email member communications that deliver the right message, at the right time, in the right place. With the addition of a feed, visibility of important promotions is increased without the need to design special web pages and emails to capture members’ attention. Critical messages and calls-to-action for customized messages also can be anchored in the announcement area of the feed.
Unified view for decision-making. Associations can take advantage of social and behavioral analytics and make powerful decisions that streamline social and community management and costs, while increasing their organization’s success, but not their workload and effort. Whether SocialLink users are members or administrators, each group, respectively, has visibility and insight into a peer’s knowledge exchange and community health. The SocialLink feed also will automatically promote membership renewals when members are close to their expiration date.
