Improve member communication by integrating your toolsets

Associations face a unique challenge compared to other types of organizations. Usually with a small staff, it makes it more difficult to manage multiple applications that all handle different things. This ultimately creates a disconnection with your member groups. You send email campaigns to get a message out, but members don’t have a way of collaborating around an email. You need to get projects done within committees and end up spending more money on project management software. Social HubSite solves this problem by blending together right communication, project management and community tools all in one place.

Increase membership value by bringing focus to your member interactions

A major problem associations face is gaining the time, attention and energy from members that are becoming more and more distracted with email and mainstream social networks. Social HubSite focuses on making simple things better like the way you share updates with member groups or committees. The way you collaborate around documents. Even the way you manage projects within committees. We are listening to you, the leader of a small association. We understand your pain in communicating with members and keeping them engaged. Social HubSite exists to make that pain go away.

Grow revenue opportunities by making resources more accessible

As you know, one of the main reasons members leave your association is due to lack of participation and engagement. This is not always related to “being social”. Many times it’s lack of access to the resources your association provides. Think about members that are unable to attend live events. Think about members that join for networking purposes, but don’t have direct access to other members outside live events. By incorporating simple, powerful and easy-to-use collaboration features in one place you will not only decrease member attrition and increase member engagement, but more importantly, get members to tell others.

How Social HubSite Differs From Your Association Management System (AMS)

Take the leap to drive your association closer to achieving its mission.

Association management systems revolutionized how associations manage members and the organization as a whole.

Association collaboration platforms like Social HubSite go a step further and are revolutionizing how associations actually drive the mission of the organization. Here’s how:

Social HubSite is an association collaboration platform designed to provide all the essential tools that associations need to drive their mission. It’s built on top of the WordPress, the world’s most progressive open source web platform. All the core features and custom add-on features found in Social HubSite are designed specifically for associations to improve members communication, increase membership value and grow revenue opportunities. Social HubSite becomes your association’s competitive advantage as an association for a fraction of the cost of purchasing these systems separately.

Associations use Social HubSite, not to manage their membership, but to create an environment that supports getting things done and growing the member base. This includes:

  • Project and task management
  • Surveys
  • Q & A
  • Social networking
  • Course creation
  • Conferencing
  • And much more

Social HubSite also supports a variety of additional revenue-generating opportunities including sponsorships, selling courses and more.

With Social HubSite, the focus is always on member collaboration and providing you with the tools you need to drive your association forward, not just maintain it. We are partnering with several AMS systems to provide seamless interaction for members. Whether members are on your website or AMS system, they are always a click away from an incredible member experience with Social HubSite. This allows both systems to focus properly on development and innovation so you, the association leader, can delegate, empower and grow your association with confidence.

Your association management system keeps you running. Your Social HubSite gets you flying!

Are you ready to take the leap?

Put More Money Back Into Your Association by Consolidating Your Toolsets

Start consolidating your collaboration tools all in one place and start saving.

As an association leader, you know that there are multiple systems required to collaborate effectively with both members and staff. Think about systems such as email marketing, learning management, project management and forms management. Using multiple collaboration systems like these is not only expensive, but also time consuming to manage. With member data sitting in multiple places, along with limited staff and resources, it can also be frustrating to organize and maintain.

Social HubSite solves this problem by not only including over 300 different premium collaboration tools (relevant for associations) under one roof, but also integrating directly with several AMS providers and thousands of popular web applications. It gives you, your team, and/or your members one place to engage, share and connect to get things done the way you choose.

See for yourself. Choose the collaboration tools your association needs by checking on the boxes on the form to your right. Find out just how much you’ll save by using Social HubSite.

The calculator takes into account common tools used by associations internally (for staff) and externally (for members). The total spend takes into account average market variable and fixed pricing for each toolset. The total savings takes into account the total spend minus the Social HubSite subscription fee based on the size of your association.

Cost averages reference Capterra reviews of pricing averages for each category of software.

Why Associations Choose Social HubSite

What truly separates Social HubSite from other software used by associations.

Focus is on member collaboration

Social HubSite is not a member management system. The focus is purely on achieving your goals through member collaboration. This means increased member engagement. This means getting things done with member groups. This means connecting members to each other. This means connecting members to your resources. Overall, Social HubSite is focused on shaping its continued development, education and support to make member collaboration your biggest strength as an association.

Integration with member management systems (AMS)

Social HubSite is focused on continually adding and improving its integration with member management systems. These systems primarily focus on managing member dues, member status, and other forms of connection to the association. Social HubSite focuses purely on the collaboration end. Through the integrations we are able to offer your members features such as single sign on access to your Social HubSite community, managing access to certain content areas and even display items from your member management system. This creates the kind of seamless interaction that allows both systems to do what they do best.

Flexibility to customize the member community experience

Not every association is the same and not every online community should be either. Social HubSite gives your association the flexibility to turn on additional features (outside of the core feature set), customize the design, control page privacy (e.g. members only, public, etc.), and control many other aspects that allow you to tailor an experience that supports the objectives of your association. This flexibility combined with the power of WordPress, the connectivity of BuddyPress and the security, performance and scalability of Amazon Web Services, creates an experience that members, and your staff, will love.

Support that works with you every step of the way

We believe the success of your member community does not solely come from technology. It comes from the right blend of purpose, people, platforms and processes. Social HubSite not only provides the platform, but the right people to support you along the way so you can focus less on technology and more on what drives the mission of your association. Your Social HubSite support team is always a click away and will work with you to make sure you achieve your objectives.

Pennsylvania Business Brokers Association

A success story on increasing member engagement.

The Pennsylvania Business Brokers Association (PBBA) has 2 conferences (spring and fall) throughout the year. These conferences offer excellent educational and networking opportunities for members. PBBA noticed a trending decline in attendance to their conferences starting in 2013. The only method of marketing the conferences used before was through their email marketing software.

National Utility Contractors Association of Pennsylvania

A success story on improving member communication.

The National Utility Contractors Association of Pennsylvania (NUCA of PA) is an association made up not only of utility contractors, but also a government relationship committee, safety committee, affiliate members and associate members. The challenge they faced before using Social HubSite was reaching out to members to make them aware of timely information that members needed to act on, updates on progress with government relations and many other areas.

Execupay Licensee Association

A success story on increasing membership value.

The Execupay Licensee Association is comprised of licensees of Execupay, a software for payroll professionals. A key aspect of the association is collaboration from members to vote on new software feature suggestions, share reports, ask/answer questions and to discuss other issues. Before Social HubSite, managing all of these aspects became challenging considering that most web platforms only handled one or a few aspects of what they needed (e.g. documenting feature suggestions, managing questions, user group forums, sharing documents, etc.).

The Arc of Dauphin County

A success story on improving member communication.

The Arc of Dauphin County, based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, is an organization devoted to enhancing the quality of life and community integration for individuals with special needs. A large part of how they communicate and get things done is through their board, volunteers and committees. Before Social HubSite, their communication internally with these various groups was scattered. Sharing of important documents took place through an FTP site. This forced communication around documents to take place via email and became fragmented causing participation from the various groups to decline.
