With increasing accessibility to websites via mobile devices, we are looking at making Membee’s online features mobile friendly through responsive design.
What is Responsive Design?
Responsive design is essentially having a website/features that work on desktop browsers and mobile devices. It will be desktop and mobile device friendly. The benefits of having this are:
- No added cost; all the widgets are already included as part of your subscription cost
- No need for an App to be designed
- Maintain one website

The online features that will move to a responsive design in 2015 include the following widgets:
- New Member Sign Up
The idea would be that the full content of the widgets will be available regardless of the size of the screen members are viewing the information on, so it works on their PC, their tablet and their smartphone. This is the major benefit of a responsive design, the design simply adjusts to the size of the screen a member is using so there isn't any development or maintenance of a specific "Mobile Version" . Another major benefit of a responsive design is that it allows you to maintain one website (you do not have different versions of your site or different versions of your content). Having a single website that works everywhere offers significant savings over creating multiple native mobile apps.
A great way to promote your organization is to entice new members, renewing members or event registrants to be involved with your organization. What better way to provide an incentive than to offer a promo code to them. With the promo codes, the idea is that you will have the ability to provide your members, or event registrants a discount code. This discount code would allow them to enter in the code at the time of purchase to receive a discount on the amounts.
With many organizations looking for ways to fund projects, initiatives and causes, they are done through gathering of donations. As many non profits accept donations, many also provide receipts to donors to claim for charitable tax credit or deduction.
There’s More to Come!
This is just a glimpse of the exciting new features we are working on here at the hive. There are more to come, but we can’t divulge everything. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on the blog as there are certainly further exciting announcements to come.
