2014 has been a busy year with many exciting features released to help significantly reduce your admin time. Who knew bees could accomplish so much within 365 days?! Here are some of the highlights from this past year:
Let Membee Do the Work For You
This is arguably the biggest feature we have ever released ! 2014 saw the introduction of Automations. Automations are simply tasks that you set up Membee to complete for you. Our first set of Automations provided you with the ability to completely automate what we refer to as your “Membership Life Cycle.” This includes:
- Signing up new members
- Invoicing members for renewals
- Sending follow ups to members about their outstanding invoices
- Cancelling/suspending members.
Remember, Membee will do the work for you, but you’re always in control.
Implementing Membee’s Automations to take care of your everyday administrative tasks will save you time so that you can focus on the tasks that provide value to your members.

Upsell to Renewing Members

When it comes time for your membership renewals, you can offer your members a chance to upgrade their membership, sign up for an event, or make a donation. This will allow you to engage your members with other offerings from your organization, and in turn increase revenue.

Get New Members Signed Up and Participating

It’s easy to engage your new members with your organization when they sign up. Much like the effective upselling to renewing members, you can also do this with Membee’s New Member Sign Up form. You can offer them the convenience to:
- Register for an event,
- Donate to one of your funds
You can also provide the link to your form to former members and invite them to re-join. Allowing your new members to sign up online and offering additional items for purchase is an effective way to upsell to any new or former members.

Be sure to check out our release notes on the changes on the New Member Sign Up.
Let Membee Help You Comply With Email Communication Legislation
If you wish to track consent from your members to send communication via email, Membee’s “consent” feature can help. Once you activate this feature, Membee will gather in the information of whether or not consent has been granted and also how consent was granted. You can then use this information to control who receives email communication from you.
Be sure to have a look at our release notes.
It’s been a busy year here at the hive. Keep your eyes peeled on the upcoming plans for 2015.
Have a Wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
