May's Session

'Association Video: Trends, Creative Techniques and Rules of Member Engagement'

Video is the most effective tool for communicating and engaging with your members. Studies have shown that members will engage with your organization 2 minutes longer if you have video on your website. The chances of them buying a product or service from you will increase by 65% after viewing your video contentcontent.

In this session we will showcase multiple case studies of association video campaigns that are utilized for membership, communications and events. In addition we will cover new trends for 2018 and how associations are crafting their messages to get better engagement and ROI. We will also discuss how associations are marketing to their more seasoned members vs. millennials and how that message should differ.
