Your association is in the business of providing fantastic benefits to your professional member community. One way many associations have successfully accomplished this is by providing a marketing benefit to their members in the form of an online directory. Directories enable your members to have a third-party validated relationship to a reputable organization (yours!) while also giving you a chance to highlight to prospective members the quality of terrific company they’ll find themselves if they join your community. As the owner of the directory, you can even build a new revenue stream by allowing advertisements or highlighted listings in the directory.
Imagine you’re a professional individual within your membership community. When you have your own small business, you’re always looking for any opportunity to tell the world about your great niche service. Being associated with an association of vetted fellow professionals increases your standing in the community, and when shared online can give you a search engine boost to boot!
Unfortunately, it can be difficult and expensive to build membership directories with Salesforce.com. Writing a bunch of VisualForce pages, custom Apex code, being reliant on a consultant for any changes or even minor changes can cost tons of money and take control out of your hands.
Using the Soapbox Engage platform, you can easily create a beautiful and mobile-optimized membership directories for your professional association. Without knowing any code, the non-technical folks on your team can create, customize, and publish online member directories integrated with data already existing in your Salesforce database quickly. You’ll even be able to make sure the directory looks just like your website’s design, ensuring your visitors know exactly who’s behind that great looking community of members. Even better, the member Salesforce data you want to share publicly (or even privately in members-only area) can published in real-time, so you don’t have to worry about double-data entry into another system. It’s all automatic!
