Tiered Membership Pricing as Part of a TRC, Kyle Sexton Workshop

REMEMBERSHIP - New Strategies for Remarkable Membership Organizations
REMEMBERSHIP – New Strategies for Remarkable Membership Organizations

Kyle Sexton has literally written the book on chamber memberships and tiered membership pricing models. Recently he emailed out that he was coming up with a new series to help chambers with more of their members’ needs. Check out his upcoming seminar. And if your chamber hasn’t done it yet, perhaps tiered pricing would be a great addition to your Total Resource Campaign.

Kyle wrote….

I’ve asked hundreds of businesses what keeps them up at night. And if you’ve never done this with your members, the answers might not be what you think.

This year, I’m introducing a series of next-level topics for chambers who are familiar with my book Remembership – New Strategies for Remarkable Membership Organizations (eBook). I’ve been studying the highest performers in the Chamber industry, and I’m sharing this valuable insight in these workshops.

Here’s your invitation to Solving Common Business Problems on Thursday, March 15th.

In this workshop, we’re going to discuss:

  1. The Dozen Daily Dilemmas faced by your members
  2. How to organize these pain points for different businesses
  3. How and where to keep the conversation going about business challenges and opportunities

So I hope you’ll join me on Thursday, March 15th. Here’s to a great 2018, and I’ll see you on the 18th!

All the Best,

Kyle Sexton

Map of Chambers Running Total Resource Campaigns Updated

The more we talk to Chamber people, the more we see a cooperative spirit almost unparalleled in other industries.  Everyone wants everyone to succeed – ESPECIALLY when it comes to Total Resource Campaigns. EasyTRC loves to help connect people to share those ideas – especially the ones that help generate revenue to help chambers succeed!

EasyTRC has updated the map of Chambers and Associations that have run a Total Resource Campaign

Did we miss any chambers of commerce or professional associations that are running or have historically run a total resource campaign? Let us know

We’d also be happy to make an introduction to someone running a total resource campaign if you’re just starting out or are 10 years in and need some fresh ideas. We have found that many ideas resonate with multiple chambers. Basing TRC themes on popular board games, movies, TV shows makes them easy to relate to. So what if you are going to use the same idea that someone 5 states away used? Not everything has to be truly unique; But we are sure that each chamber always puts their unique touches on everything they do.

Some of these chambers have met with failure, but a majority have seen success – some massively so. Let’s get you talking and see where things go. Do you think it would be a good idea to have a TRC summit? We could do it via GotoMeeting or something and spend an afternoon just sharing ideas. Let us know your thoughts.

Hi everyone! We’re excited to announce that we’ve updated EasyTRC to v2.10 with some exciting new features that many of you have requested in the past year.

We’ve added several new features to help with prospecting including business classifications, a Do Not Call list, and a company search feature.

We’ve added a new report, tied everything to Facebook, and even let you change what you call your users – salespeople, volunteers, salesketeers, whatever you want!

We’re also happy to schedule a quick demo to show off the new features to you and your staff.
