How Programmatic Advertising Benefits Associations
Heard of programmatic advertising, but wondering what it is and how it works? Join us for a conversation with Kerry Walter, director of programmatic operations for Naylor Association Solutions. Kerry explains how programmatic advertising is an auction-based style of buying and selling ads that can help your sponsors reach more of your members. Programmatic also helps associations reach more members and potential members with important programming messages through retargeting capabilities. In short, it helps suppliers reach their target audience, and helps your association reach the people you want to involve more! This mini episode is the first of a series on programmatic advertising.

3 Things Associations Should Do on Social Media Right Now
What should your association be doing on social media to effectively communicate with members and potential members? Kelly & Kaydee break it down: BIG idea: Control your message. Take ownership of your brand and your association's voice on the social media platforms that are most relevant to your audience. You don't have to be everywhere, but you do need to be SOMEWHERE. Small idea #1: Build stories using Twitter Moments. Moments are collections of tweets that you post, or that others post, that you gather under a “Moment” that is accessible through your profile. They're a great way to tell a story about an event, a program, or a person. Small idea #2: Use association-branded hashtags in your posts. Hashtags are such a simple tool that help people find and focus on info they want. Use hashtags to recognize members, brand your social media, get members to take action & more. Let us know what you think & drop us suggestions for future podcasts at AssociationAdviser@nayloronline.com.

Make Content Planning Work for You
Chances are your association members interact with your association in more than one way. They attend events, open your emails, and read your publications at a frequency and level of involvement that fits their professional role and aspirations at the moment. But not all members prefer to receive communications in the same way, at the same time and in the same format. But, through our 2017 Association Communications Benchmarking Study, we found that more than 50 percent of associations surveyed say they have just one overall content strategy for all members! Content planning isn’t easy, so we talked with Monica Dutcher, editor and content director for the National Asphalt Pavement Association, and Ashley Williams, Communication director for the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, about how they tackle content planning. Monica and Ashley share their processes for planning magazine issues and online content, how they source content, who makes decisions about content plans and who is respo

How Associations Can Earn More Non-Dues Revenue
Why is non-dues revenue important to associations? In addition to supporting year-round programming and keeping member dues low, non-dues revenue (the kind of revenue your association can earn from any source other than membership dues) helps associations expand programming as well as expand their membership roll. This month, Kaydee Brown and Kelly Clark talk with Tara Ericson, Group Vice President for Member Communications at Naylor Association Solutions, and John Bacon, a group publisher also with Naylor, about the ways asosciations can earn more revenue that will support their mission and goals. We cover ways of earning more revenue including the sale of advertising space in publications, charging for exhibit space at an event, and collecting fees to view content from an educational course or your association’s conferences and workshops. Tara and John give useful insight into how a vendor that specializes in publication design and production or event management can help an asoscia

Event Security: What to Anticipate and How to Plan For More Secure Events
On this podcast, Kaydee and Kelly discuss event safety and security, and how associations can prepare for an event-related crisis. Does your association have an event crisis plan? Do your staff know what to do when someone at an event is injured, or when a hurricane is bearing down on your venue? Safety and security is the No. 1 trend in the Meetings Outlook Surveys held by MPI (Meeting Professionals International) twice each year. This is the first time in the history of the survey that safety and security has ranked as the number one trend meeting planners pay attention to when planning an event. Surprised? Considering recent events that have negatively impacted concerts, church services, schools and other events, not to mention the usual risks of sickness or weather that event planners usually anticipate, you shouldn't be. While some crises are more preventable than others, you and your staff can and should prepare for all types of crises. On this podcast, we review the most re
