- If it looks like we can help you with your membership growth, we will book you for a one-on-one Member Journey workshop.
- In this session, our goal is to review the services you offer your members and understand how they are accessing those services.
- We will identify gaps in your member journey that are keeping your members from benefitting fully from your services.
- After our workshop, we will create a report of the gaps we identified and your action plan to grow your association.

Membership Site FAQs
What is a membership site?
A membership site — also called a member portal or member hub — is a members-only area where members can access their member benefits. The content is gated behind a member login. The membership site is linked to your public-facing website. Members can use the membership site to update their membership information, renew their membership, register for events, watch videos, download resources and stay in touch with other members.
To learn more about membership sites, read our blog, A Tale of Two Entities: The Benefit of Keeping your Member Portal and Website Separate.
What features should you have on your membership site?
A membership site should facilitate your members to engage with your association’s member benefits. Providing an intuitive and easy-to-navigate experience is key to maintaining member engagement and retention. Any other additional feature on your portal should directly benefit your members and the work you do to support them. Anything else can be removed as it adds clutter and confusion to the user. Less is more.
How can our association increase member traffic to our website?
Your association has created valuable member benefits for your members — only that they are underused by your membership! Improving traffic to both your public-facing website and your member-focused membership site is done by creating a user experience that is appropriate for the audiences visiting your website. Your public-facing website should be used to target your prospective members, while your membership site’s messaging should appeal to your members.
