The Social HubSite member collaboration platform provides you with one place to engage, share, connect and get things done with the various member groups that make up your organization. The cloud-based system combines an integrated set of collaboration, community management, and publishing features that enable you to centralize your communication and maintain the focus, attention and time from the people that matter most, your members.
Most organizations use between 8-12 web apps to manage communication with members. This makes it more difficult to manage and becomes more costly, especially with limited resources. We’ve done our homework, asked organizations about the frustration they have with member communication and through that have developed an integrated platform to bring everything you need to manage member communication into one place, your Social HubSite.
As you know, one of the main reasons members leave your organization is due to lack of participation and engagement. Trying to engage members on various social networks makes it hard to give members a sense of community, deliver education and keep members involved. Because Social HubSite integrates everything you need to communicate with members in one place, members feel a sense of community, become engaged and continue their membership, and best of all, tell others.
Member management systems revolutionized how organizations manage members and the organization as a whole.
Member collaboration platforms like Social HubSite go a step further and are revolutionizing how membership organizations actually drive the mission of the organization. Here’s how:
Social HubSite is a member collaboration platform designed to provide all the essential tools that membership organizations 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 membership organizations to improve members communication, increase membership value and grow revenue opportunities. Social HubSite becomes your organization’s competitive advantage for a fraction of the cost of purchasing these systems separately.
Membership organizations 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:
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 membership organization forward, not just maintain it. We are partnering with several member management systems to provide seamless interaction for members. Whether members are on your website or member management 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 can delegate, empower and grow your membership organization with confidence.
Your member management system keeps you running. Your Social HubSite gets you flying!
Are you ready to take the leap?
As a leader of a membership organization, 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 various collaboration tools (relevant for membership organizations) under one roof, but also integrating directly with several member management 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 organization 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 membership organizations 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 organization.
Cost averages reference Capterra reviews of pricing averages for each category of software.
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 organization.
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 organization. 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.
Not every organization is the same and not every online community should be either. Social HubSite gives your organization 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 will love.
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 membership organization. Your Social HubSite support team is always a click away and will work with you to make sure you achieve your objectives.
Social HubSite is priced to accommodate membership organizations of all sizes.
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.
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.
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.).
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.
