How to use blogs to attract new society members

Are you using conferences as a lead generation tool?
Every society or association should use meetings, exhibits and conferences as a lead generation tool. Event marketing is still an effective tactic to gain new society memberships. Attending society meetings and conferences is a great way to interact with your society’s target audience and introduce prospective members to the brand. Even if it’s not the precise target audience, meetings on sub-specialties or adjoining subject matters can still present your organization with a new opportunity to reach a unique market segment.
Direct mail still produces results
Direct mail may be traditional but it still produces excellent results as a lead generation tool. Printed materials provide a lasting impression. Personalizing is key when using direct mail. Targeted information converts to leads.
Trials, discounts and long-form content
