Effective communication still takes careful thought and execution, even in this era of blurb, bullet point and hashtag.
By all means, be facile with the hashtag, the emoji and all of the other clever little helps and tricks that are out there. But if you don’t research, strategize, plot and plan your communication, you’ll fail at best and fall flat on your face at worst.

Ever wonder why an organization continues to use emailed PDFs for membership and event signups when much more elegant and simple solutions are available?

Are you emailing a newsletter or annual meeting materials or the documents for the next board meeting as PDFs?
Are you cobbling together third-party websites for online event registrations or to sign up your volunteers?
Are your social media sites orphans drifting somewhere in the outer reaches of your online universe?
And what about your blog? Does it reside somewhere outside your association’s website? Do you even have a blog?
Would you like to see all of these functions and more consolidated into one easy-to-manage resource? Do you long for consistent ongoing support to produce and distribute engaging, meaningful content to your association members?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should explore CR3AT1V3LY1NKL1N3D’s comprehensive online association management and communication solution. At the core of our program is an association website that operates like a beautiful symphony orchestra with talented musicians playing finely crafted instruments to create a harmonious and seamless whole.
Here is a brief overview of the main sections on the association management site we could put at your service:

GET INVOLVED: This section outlines all of the opportunities to become involved with your association and its array of activities, outreach and leadership paths.
MEETINGS & EVENTS: An interactive comprehensive calendar of events is located here. Members and others will be able to register online for events and make all arrangements for attending in this section of your website.
YOUR ASSOCIATION STORE: Members and others will be able to complete online purchases of sponsorships, advertising, association-branded items, services and other items here. You could even offer classified advertising as a member benefit.
