How Member Lounge Can Help Engage Your Members
Your association needs a designated place for your members to:
- Engage with your member benefits.
- Find opportunities to grow professionally and personally.
- Connect with other members.
Your Website vs. Your Membership Site
With your public-facing website is part of your sales team, your membership site is part of your membership management team. Your prospects and your members need a different experience.
- Your website audience is for your prospective members while your membership site is for your members.
- Your website content is geared for prospective members while your membership site content caters to your members.
- The website should be loaded with lead magnets while your membership site should be a pleasant journey for your members.
The roadmapping process was extremely wonderful, it really made the difference in what we got as an outcome. It focused all our intentions on what was best for the membership, always taking into account what adds value and what distracts from value. We can now better track our revenue streams.

What is the best done-for-you membership site?
There are many template membership site builder tools available on the market. They all do a lot but can’t do it all. Before browsing the tools that are available on the market, we recommend doing an internal needs assessment. We recommend a formal discovery with your team to establish who you are as an association, what is your value proposition, how do you support members, who your members are, and make sure that the membership site you will build will support your goals and your members’ goals. We can facilitate this discovery process with a Membership Site Roadmap Workshop.
