Yesterday I had the privilege of having lunch with the president and webmaster from a women’s club with which we are working.  It was an awesome experience for me to share ideas and experiences with these two brilliant women.  We discussed, at length, a variety of tactics to attract business sponsors for their club.  If you’re familiar with our blogs, you will know that we’ve previously written about sponsorship, but yesterday’s conversation brought about how important having sponsors can be, to any club.  So here are a few things to think about if your club wants to create a successful sponsorship program.

Attracting new members is the lifeblood of any club. No matter how good your club is, statistics tell us that only 60-70% of the members renew year to year. Any higher rate of retention is way above average. This means that in order to actually grow, you have to replace the members who didn’t renew, plus some.  That’s a shocker, huh?

Listed here are a few membership-building ideas that have been used effectively by several or the clubs we work with as well as clubs we’ve researched online. While they won’t all apply to your club’s situation, maybe some can be used to make your group grow.

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I was going to get back to the subject of zip files.  This is Part 2 of 'Moving the Elephant--Sending Large Files and Groups of Files'. 

This week. let's talk about compressing and zipping files, two terms that are frequently used in conjunction with each other. 

When someone asks you to just “zip those files and send the zip file to me” do you break out in a cold sweat?

Topics involving file compression and zipping can seem daunting and scary, but they don’t need to be.  It's a fairly easy process.

We love what we do! Creating websites provides an awesome platform for triggering our creative and "geek" juices in a very satisfying way. It’s fun! What puts it "over the top," for us, are the people that we meet, virtually, while doing business with them. This past year, we have been extremely blessed to work with some extremely terrific people and clubs. The way we’ve structured our process allows us to get close and become good friends, albeit virtually, with the webmasters for the club websites that we create. Likewise, once a site has been created, the club webmaster has been trained and the site has been launched, it’s not the end of the process. The friendships that we have made in the process continue. We get so excited when we hear about the various club successes. Yep, we love what we do!

Okay, I’ll admit it…in a previous life…I taught English! Well, sort of. Throughout my career in education I was first and foremost a theatre teacher, but because I’d written for a few magazines and newspapers, when the educational powers-that-be needed someone to "fill in," I was allowed to teach creative writing. So I taught teenagers to write short, sweet and, uh…dramatically! Go figure.

I’m definitely no Shakespeare, but my past writing experience has been a terrific help when writing for websites.

We frequently do website audits for prospective clients.  Here are a few things that we analyze as we look at the home page of any site.  Hopefully this will help you and your club as you make decisions about giving your current website a “makeover.”

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

  • Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.
  • Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.
  • Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.
  • They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.
