Pain points

Difficulty expressing and delivering membership value

Associations must prove the value of membership to an audience made up of multiple generations and market segments, each with different goals and expectations. Fíonta sets up automated workflows that allow you to deliver personalized content throughout the membership journey along with dashboards that give your team a complete view of member engagement.

Employer budget cuts, travel disruptions, rising venue costs, and last-minute registrations have made event planning more challenging and unpredictable.

Fluctuating revenue from sponsors and exhibitors

Associations depend on sponsors and exhibitors for non-dues revenue, yet these industry partners have increasing options for their marketing budgets. Fíonta designs engagement workflows, dashboards, and reporting tools that allow your association to take a holistic approach to nurturing leads and strengthening revenue partnerships throughout the year.

Relevant and timely member engagement

Members are busy as well as savvy and are likely to ignore or entirely miss email communications that don’t feel personalized. Associations miss opportunities for meaningful engagement simply because they don’t have the means to accurately segment or personalize emails or landing pages. Fíonta consultants possess expertise with data migration and segmentation, as well as the UX/UI skills needed to design and develop compelling email and landing page designs.

Transforming data into insight and decisions

When data is scattered across different systems, understanding the interests and behavior of prospects, members, and customers is a complicated task. Fíonta consultants set up reporting and analytics tools that give your staff the information they need to do their jobs, whether that’s improving member engagement, planning events and marketing campaigns, or making resource allocation decisions.

Securing member data and access online

The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) is respected for its dedication to industrial hygiene and occupational and environmental health and safety communities. This membership-based organization founded in the New Deal era has stayed relevant to its growing membership by providing robust benefits, many of which are now accessible through its digital properties. These include a WordPress website fully integrated with Fonteva, an Association Management Solution (AMS) built on Salesforce. Under our guidance, the website was migrated to a new hosting solution, Pantheon, without disrupting member services or access. Visit website
