How to Convince Your Boss to Send You to AUCA 2017

Attending the Aptify Users Conference Australia (AUCA) every year can be a tall order when you’ve got so many other high priority tasks to complete and a manager asking you to justify the cost. I might be biased, as I have a hand in the conference agenda and planning, but 2017 is certainly going to be the best line-up of sessions we have ever had for Australia Aptify users, and I would hate for you to miss out.

4 Secrets to Better Member Engagement at Your Association

Member engagement is a buzzword in the association space you hear about on a constant basis, and it's a word you see pretty frequently in our blog too. But unlike some buzzwords, it's one that will not be going anywhere because at the end of the day, your members are critical to your organization's survival. Yes, that might sound a little dramatic, but it's true.  Member engagement strategies vary at every organization, and what might work for one association may not necessarily be as effective at yours. There is no universal playbook that has the "right" and "wrong" way to actively engage with your membership because your members are unique and each person has their own defintion of engagement and how much (or how little) they want to be involved.  It's not always easy trying to engage with your members. They're equally as busy as you are, and if you're sending them irrevelant info, then you'll quickly find them losing interest in you, and thus, questioning why they even joined in the first place. It helps to have a strategy in place before your start flooding their inbox with newsletters and emails in order to get their attention.  Read More

If you’re like me, quick and easy searching for data is crucial to getting work done. On most days, I feel like Hansel and Gretel, just praying that I’ve left enough breadcrumbs to get me back to a record I was looking at, or a report I've created. I know that Favorites and the Application Menu are there for me, but I’ve left them both an unorganized mess, so search is my saving grace. Considering I use the Smart Search functionality in Aptify so often, I thought I’d share my 4 favorite search features, just in case you need them when you’re lost in the woods trying to find your way home.

3 Sweet Ways to Drive Membership Growth Using Inbound Marketing

As a self-proclaimed dessert fiend, you might assume that I enjoy baking sweet treats as much as I enjoy eating them. The truth is, though, I’m not really a fan of baking—mainly because I don’t like the precision that’s needed for it. For those avid bakers out there, you know making a cake, pie, or something equally tasty that you see on Pinterest requires following the instructions to a T. And if you choose to substitute or skip ingredients (which is something I typically do), then there’s a strong chance it won’t turn out the way you expect. Read More
