Top three reasons to adopt career management software for your association
Association membership rates have hit some challenging bumps in the road. Many associations are reporting decreased renewal and growth for the first time in recent years. However, implementing career pathing software can help you rise above these challenges.
According to the 2021 Membership Marketing Benchmarking Report, associations that demonstrate a commitment to innovation are more likely to report membership growth, even during periods of overall downward trends. These findings demonstrate how innovations, like the career path planning tools from YM Careers, can help your association increase membership and resist negative industry trends.
Revenue is important to help your association provide the services and support you promise to your members. Membership-based associations tend to derive around 50% of their revenue from member dues, leaving around 50% of non-dues revenue. Our Career Planning Portal helps build membership and non-dues revenue by attracting industry employers looking for qualified candidates.
Along with our career management software, our team of marketing and sales experts can help your association provide other revenue-driving services, such as career events and monthly email campaigns to target employers. In our history, YM Careers has paid out nearly $1 billion to our customers in non-dues revenue.
The value-add you provide with career management software impacts both your association members and the employers who advertise on your career center. Just as any organization or business must, your association needs to provide services your members will value.
By offering advanced career planning capabilities to your association members, you provide a genuine service that can have a demonstrated impact on their career growth. Furthermore, employers who advertise on your platform can have access to the top professionals in their industry and attract new and emerging talents.
