Small Associations Need Technology to Survive and Grow
Small organizations thrive when they can maximum non-due revenue. Veltec Networks helps you maximize revenue generation and reduce costs through our technology consulting services.
Small associations don’t prioritize technology due to budget constraints and the need to increase revenues. Although most small associations say they are unable to meet member needs, upgrading or implementing new technology seems like a faraway dream.
Why Isn’t Technology for Small Associations Prioritized?
At small associations, most of the time and effort is spent on increasing non-dues revenue, with membership drives running a close second. A survey commissioned by Community Brands shows that most small associations bring in under $1 million in revenue each year. Half comes from dues and about a third comes from non-dues money earned through sponsors, events and event exhibitors.
The early 2019 survey garnered 350 replies from association professionals, with respondents in leadership positions at their organizations. Most had a staff of fewer than 10 workers.
Most of the survey respondents didn’t think that technology solutions were in reach — even though technological innovations could dramatically increase revenue.
How Can Technology for Small Associations Increase Non-Dues Revenue?
Associations often limit their technology spend to event-related tools. Untapped opportunities for small associations would help them gain efficiencies and increase revenue. Here are a few areas that could be dramatically improved for a small price tag:
- Job boards
- Webinars to generate non-dues revenue
Less than half of respondents felt ready for current and future needs or planned to adopt new technology as a priority.
Small associations can bring their lagging technology up to date by working with an IT managed service provider. A predetermined monthly fee makes it easy to budget changes and there’s an immediate return on investment in any technology that lets your organization generate leads and reach more members and donors.
