We talk a lot about influencers. I mean think about it, they're everywhere. Social media, the news, politics. Telling you what to buy, what's cool and influencing the actions you take. Clowder client Shelley Seavers from AGC San Antonio recognizes the importance of influencers. She sent out an email to 11 individuals she identified as potential app influencers to help drive engagement. Read more about her thought process and expectations below from our one-on-one interview.

As far as the website vs. app debate goes, it’s not an Either/Or Situation - both are needed. Just as we always like to say – websites are for attention, apps are for retention. It’s time to put your website’s most utilized features and resources in a native app so your members can access them right through their phones. When it comes to keeping your association engaging, it’s important you know your people, what they need, and how to best deliver that.

Membership retention is the name of the game when it comes to associations. With so many new resources and programs introduced in the market, how can you get members to stay and continue finding value in your organization?

Raise your hand if you love stealing good ideas? If you're in the office and don't want to look silly, a smirk and little nod will do just fine. We know that members want to keep conversations going all year long, outside of the mixers, workshops and the conference. And it was this need for connecting and sharing that prompted us to launch the SocialLink community forum in the first place. Fast forward a few years later, and we've found a tool we think you'll like a LOT more -- the LTEN On-the-Go app.

The following piece is an article published in TADA's most recent issue of Dealers' Choice Magazine:
Your membership is now at your fingertips with the new TADA app! The Texas Automobile Dealers Association is dedicated to bringing its over 1,300 Texas Franchised Automobile Dealers together in one simple, mobile hub for news and information. The organization is excited for the increase in member connectivity the app aims to bring about. TADA CFO Albert Ploch expressed, “The app provides the TADA membership with news updates, event information and an easy way for members to discuss issues and be more in direct contact with their fellow dealers.”
The app was developed by Clowder, which provides associations with native apps uniquely tailored to their organization for greatly enhanced member engagement year-round. “We’ve discussed having a TADA app for years,” Ploch explains. “Most of the apps we’ve had in the past revolved solely around events. TADA needed an app that was relevant all year long, easy to manage, and available at a cost-effective price. That is why we chose Clowder®. They checked all the boxes.”
You’ll find many features in the app that help keep you up-to-date with TADA. Once you opt-in to the app’s Push Notifications, you’ll never miss a beat when it comes to association announcements and happenings. The Newsfeed is where you’ll have access to the latest content posted such as industry articles, legislative updates and regulatory changes impacting your business. Users are then able to easily bookmark and share. To also stay updated with TADA events, you can find everything coming up listed in the Events Tab with coordinating information.
