All of your association’s goals depend on getting people to take action. - You need new members to apply - You need current members to renew - You need people to attend your events - You need members to buy products or sign up for classes - You need advocates in your industry to mobilize for change Smart associations know this doesn’t happen by chance, or by simply blasting members with emails. It takes thoughtful planning and precise execution. When you hear about these core association goals, the part that is often overlooked is that most of these interactions with members and non-members begin with a landing page.

If every associations had all an endless marketing budget and an abundance of staff, making sure that those audiences got the right message at the right time would something that all association could do.
