Effective communication with key stakeholders

Your brochures, event roll-ups, website, banners, newsletters (...) must provide unified experience that resonate strong message and professionalism. Having all this developed by one team of professionals ensures a good result.

Engage with members and industry

Having a protected area of the website dedicated to members and stakeholders can become a valuable channel of communication for everyone within the association’s community. The challenge is to setup the members area in such a way that it is motivating and easy enough for the users to interact with each other through the platform. If not done properly, the engagement with the community will not happen on the necessary scale and over time your stakeholders will simply ignore the platform, making it obsolete and meaningless.

To spark the interaction and give life to the members area, make sure to do following:

  • Organise people into communities. Every project, committee board should be represented as an individual community. People can be members of multiple communities.
  • Streamline the communication channels. By having fewer, more general channels of communication, your community will appear more active to new users and therefore encourage new users to participate.
  • Embrace private messaging and networking. Allow people to explore other members of the community, do the networking and exchange private messages.
  • Avoid forums. Due to over-categorisation of content, forums require hundreds of active users to be perceived as “active”. Forum as a concept is obsolete due to the development of more efficient channels of communication.
  • Integrate message boards. It is a simple and clear channel for users to discuss a wide range of topics, share documents, media and other resources.
  • Keep everyone up-to-date with automatic email notification. Do not assume that people will just login to the Members area every now and then to check for updates. System must pursue the members constantly and lure them into engagement with the community.
  • Marketing your members area heavily. First month after the launch of the new community platform is critical for association to spark the interaction and engagement. React fast and provide support to the users in order to help them build their trust into the communication platform.

Create awareness through Google and social media

Companies can now create awareness easier than ever by utilising a concept called inbound marketing. Rather than spending huge budgets on marketing campaigns, inbound marketing is an approach focused on attracting customers through content and interactions that are relevant and helpful — not interruptive. The public and members of the industry find you through channels like blogs, search engines and social media.

Essentially it is an economical, long-term strategy to build awareness and engage with the public. By publishing quality content and effectively distributing it through digital channels, you increse your visibility.

Optimised for conversion

Tracking conversion is not only important for corporates and eShops. Even NGOs and non-for-profit organisations must define success factors and business goals before website revamping starts. If your mission is to keep the public informed about your mission then the goal of the new website is to boost newsletter subscriptions and build audience on social media.

Typical goals for associations are to:

  • Gain new members and supporters.
  • Grow audience that follows your publications, position papers and activities.
  • Engage with the public through newsletter subscriptions.
  • Distribute eBooks, whitepapers, journals or magazines through eShops.

Web Bay offers tools and experience that are a valuable asset for improving your conversion rates.

Conten is King
"Content is King" Bill Gates, 1996

Keeping the website updated with fresh and original content is the key to position your Organisation as a relevant factor in the industry.

  • Content must be interesting and visually attractive to cache the attention of readers.
  • It not an easy task to write content so good that people will share it with others and spread the word.
  • Content management system must be user friendly and assist user in publishing process.
  • Automate content distribution – publish once and let the CMS automatically distribute the content to different pages of the website, social media and even inbox of your members and followers.
  • Optimize content for search engines. Writer must incorporate relevant keywords, phrases that people are likely to search for in Google.
