All The Buzz In The Last 12 Months
As they say, “when a new door opens, another closes”. As we welcome 2020, it’s time to wrap up 2019’s amazing year and what all the buzz was in the Membee Hive!
We spent the valuable year exploring new and existing features while connecting with many of our users and giving them the spotlight! Let’s take a peek at what was all the buzz in 2019!
Selling Conditional Event Items
In events such as tradeshows, you may need to offer additional services such as electricity, additional tables, etc, for vendor booths. The catch is, only those who purchase a vendor booth get to purchase these additional items.
We introduced “Conditional Items,” which allow you to display additional items only after the first item is selected. So, only vendor booth purchasers can purchase electricity for their booth!
Marketing Your Past Events
What better way to show off how active your organization is by displaying your previous events in your event calendar. This gives prospective members the chance to visualize the value of joining your organization!
Draft Your Event & Preview
When creating an event, it might not be ready for the eyes of the public just yet. You can draft your event, leave it in Preview Mode while you make it look perfect, and publish it when you’re ready!
Sell Various Event Prices To Specific Membership Levels
Your organization may offer members with different membership tiers, different types of benefits. In Membee, take advantage of the ability to sell your event items at a different price based on the varying membership tiers!
For example, your Platinum members may pay less for event registrations while Bronze members pay more for the same event registration.
Your Directory As A Marketing Resource
Membee’s powerful directory capabilities is a win-win for everyone. For your members, your directory can be a potential marketing resource for their company to increase their visibility to potential consumers! As a result, your directory could be the central hub for your members.
Expanding Your Non-Dues Revenue
Get innovative with your revenue stream and offer unique ways to promote your members by selling additional or advanced directory listings. Options such as additional listings, featured listings, or specific keywords to ‘pop-to-the-top’ are potential opportunities to take advantage of.
Letting Membee Do The Work
We were able to connect with James from the Canadian Mortgage Brokers Association in Atlantic Canada, highlighting how automations has freed up their time, eliminating highly labor-intensive work, and how they were able to drive their focus to grow their organization and better promote their members!
Sell More, Convert More, and Add Membership Benefits

Tightly Secure Content with Membee’s Member Single Sign-On

Stop Doing Work And Get Your Time Back!
Anna from Lincoln Chamber of Commerce stopped chasing overdue payments and so can you! Membee’s automations can handle renewing your members, reminding members, and cancelling delinquent members all automatically for you.
The Benefits of a Private Directory
It’s not always about promoting externally. Internally is just as important too! Cote Saint-Luc Men’s Club utilizes Membee’s directory as a private, members-only directory. Members have the opportunity to contact each other, but outside entities and solicitors aren’t able to access the member’s information. This allows Membee to keep your member’s information protected.
Members Have Control Over Their Information
There is a growing expectation that members can manage their own information without contacting your organization. Simple changes such as email address changes, address changes, employer changes, etc, can all be managed by your member so you don’t need to lift a finger!
Quick or Detailed Reporting of Your Event Sales
No matter what stage of planning you’re in, gathering better insight in your sales can always be beneficial information. Using Membee’s most common “Event Details” report can give you all the information you need.
Eliminate All Manual Work To Manage Members-Only Pages
Mensa Canada expresses how Membee’s automated login capability has removed the need to manually manage member login for over 2000 members and now, it’s no longer a chore! They can now easily secure resources such as publication documents, newsletters, directory, contact information, by-laws, and more!
Conveniently Offer Additional Items During Member Renewal
When members renew, offer the opportunity for members to either register for a new event, donate to the organization, or upgrade their membership to increase their member involvement and your potential revenues!
Offer Additional Purchases During Member Sign Up
New members can immediately participate in your membership benefits during sign up by registering for an event and/or making a voluntary donation with Membee’s additional items feature – you can require a mandatory admin or professional fee during sign up too!
Boost The Sale Of Multiple Items
With Membee’s Conditional Promo Codes, you can offer a discounted second item after the sale of the first item to increase participation and sales. When a member purchases an item, they will automatically receive a personalized invitation containing a promo code for a different item.
Automated Payments & Quick Event Checkout
Get paid faster with Membee’s Card Vault feature that allows members to store their cards on their profile. Members have the option to completely automate their membership renewal payments with a stored card and even purchase event registrations with one-click!
