2 AAA Membership Marketing Plan Richard Thomas Sheron Davis Sean Kois August 25, 2014 Membership is everyone’s responsibility! What is the AAA Value Proposition? What are the components of an effective marketing plan? How can you take advantage of the new membership marketing plan?

3 Articulating a Unique Value Proposition ● Your Value Proposition should not be “what you sell” but the value of products and services you provide to members. ● Reject messages that begin with “we” or “our” (Corporate- centric). ● Map services more tightly to the needs of members, not the Association. *Thanks to Liam Lahey, writing in Connect IT 3 August 2009 Jam Session Membership Department August 25, 2014

4 Our Value Proposition ● AAA members receive efficient recognition of their dues payments so that they can gain timely access to AnthroSource and receive all of their promised journals. ● AAA members receive fast and efficient response to their profile changes so that s and surface mailings go to the correct place. ● AAA members get seamless access to the AAA meetings’ registration and abstract submission. 4 August 2009 Jam Session Membership Department August 25, 2014 What is your Value Proposition?
