It’s been a year of uncertainty and instability, and associations are starting to feel the impact. It’s hard to find leads, it’s hard to convert, and it’s hard to hit growth goals. This means that there’s more pressure than ever on the marketing team. You have to use all your ingenuity to find new ways to engage, recruit, and retain members.

Wouldn’t it be great if there were an easy way to drive growth? What if you could increase revenues by over 10% just by sending some automated emails, or dropping a cookie in the right place?

Associations are naturally cautious when it comes to investing in new technology. They have to be—they’re allocating community money, so they need to make sure they’re always acting in the best interests of the membership.

The current generation emerging from college is Generation Z, a cohort with an entirely different set of goals and values. And for associations, this means a whole new set of challenges. Already, 56 percent of associations say that they’re struggling to engage young professionals.

So how can associations attract younger Millennials, Gen Z, and beyond?

Many associations approach marketing automation (MA) from a purely cost-savings perspective. These associations look at the time and resources that go into their current marketing efforts, and they calculate what they could save if some marketing tasks were automated.

These associations are not wrong. If you use MA to handle some everyday marketing tasks, you will see some cost savings.

But if you don’t use MA as a springboard to greater transformation, you’re leaving money on the table.
