Evaluating APIs

The good, the bad, the ugly - everything you need to know about API’s

Jun 16, 2021

While an API simplifies programming, it's a complicated software component that can connect multiple systems together. It's complexity is rooted in defining the kinds of calls made, how they should be requested, data formats to use, as well as programming convention to follow.

Since so much of the API itself is defined and self contained, how do you actually evaluate its quality or level of sophistication and determine if it's the right fit for your technical plan?

Join us as we discuss qualities and features to look for and programming "gotchas" to consider so you don’t end up with a lemon.

Hyper-Personalized Emails

Emails that don’t creep but get you…like really really get you

Jul 14, 2021

You’ve heard it many times – members and prospective members are more likely to engage with your content and programming if you demonstrate that you know and understand their needs. It’s the underlying principle of Inbound Marketing, and why programming like Netflix is so popular across the generation spectrum.

So how do you personalize a digital experience across multiple channels that doesn’t come off as creepy or stalkerish? Of course, it starts with data, but association marketers need to be selective with the data they choose and map it to programming and content – better yet, they need a continuous feedback loop to keep the content personalized and relevant based on what their audiences consume.

There’s technology that can create intelligent contextual emails – join us and learn how you can create a hyper-personalized email experience without needing a staff of 10 to pull it off.
