Best-in-class membership?  Here we come.  

If you are passionate about what you do and committed to making a difference for the community you serve, I'd love to help you put ideas into motion.

My clients run:

  • Associations
  • Trade groups
  • Customer communities
  • Special interest clubs
  • Donor circles
  • Cause networks

When we partner together, it's all about creating a community that naturally draws people together around the things that are meaningful for you and for them. 

I do my best to provide solutions to fit a wide array of budget levels and needs, starting with a super affordable access anytime workshop and a group launch program, then progressing to one-on-one help and done-for-you offerings.

Long story short, if you want to work on membership together, there's probably an option that can fit.


Work-Together Options That Fit a Range of Needs & Budgets

The packages below are the most common offerings, but it's also not unusual for me to put together something custom suited for a client, so please reach out if you think I can be of help. I'm happy to discuss options.  A quick call is free.

You can schedule that here:  


You may have found yourself on my website because you're simply curious about whether membership is something you should try.  

    …. perhaps you like the idea of recurring revenue
    …. perhaps you're attracted to the whole idea of power in numbers
…  maybe it's the idea of having a bigger impact in the world

Whatever your reason, it doesn't make sense to spend a lot of money going down a path that you're not certain about.

That's why I created a super affordable online workshop that allows you to explore the possibility of membership, without making a huge commitment of time or money.  

End-to-end, there are about 90 minutes of video, plus some great resources to help you assess whether membership really makes sense for you.

It's immediately accessible online, priced at only $75 and, believe it or not, it's NOT a sales pitch for membership.  In fact, it wouldn't do anyone any good whatsoever if they jump into a business model that isn't a perfect fit.

So, rest assured that this workshop is all about helping you make the right choice for you. 


The next launch group will kick-off April 1st, 2018. 

Over 4 weeks, we will plan:

  • what you'll offer
  • how you'll price it
  • what technology you'll use
  • how you'll fill your initial offering
  • how to set it up so that it's scalable

Being part of a group of people who are implementing together is a powerful motivator… there are typically 25-30 people who are part of the group, so you won't be lost in a huge crowd like you are in some programs.

When a launch group is offered, details and enrollment will be posted on this page:  


Passion doesn't always come neatly packaged in an organized fashion.

If you're having a hard time moving forward because you want to do ALL the things, ALL at once, I'm the person who can grasp the bigness of what you want to do and map the path through to make it totally do-able. 

One of these packages will be for you if you need:

  • to be clear enough to be able to move forward with total confidence;
  • to be focused enough to make technology affordable and not too complicated for your members;
  • to be persuasive enough for others to ‘get it' which is important when you're trying to attract members or potential investors; or
  • to be complete enough to feel like you have a workable end-to-end concept.   

I have several packages to choose from and you'll find those described in this two-page download.

These package descriptions are provided as a courtesy to give you an idea of what it costs to work with me. No pricing is “official” until we've spoken and I've provided a written proposal for your consideration.


A brief description of packages and pricing is included in the one-page download below. 

The variation that you see is largely dependent on the complexity of your situation.

  • Which technology you're using (Yes, I can help you with recommendations)
  • How much content needs to be built out – pages, events, news articles, etc.
  • Whether you have existing members to move over from a different platform

When I do a membership site for a client, I make sure you have EVERYTHING you need to be successful.

It's seriously not just about design… it's about making sure all of your administrative settings are right… it's pre-creating all of your auto-responders… setting up your invoice templates… customizing email templates.

I also train you (or your designee) on how to use your new platform and provide support after the launch in case you have questions or need a refresher.

For my clients, I'm a long-term partner who supports the growth and operations of their membership program, not just a website designer. If that sounds like the kind of relationship you'd love to have, let's chat.

Sound like it's worth connecting?

A quick call is the best way to get connected.  A call also allows me to answer any questions you may have about working together.

“Amazing! You captured all the essentials and I can feel the Joy in this community already! Mary Conley Eggert

VP & Chief Innovation Officer, Global Water Works

“Joy has created a membership website for my association in less than two weeks!

The quality of what she has done is hands down the best support I've ever received. She has helped me think through offers and levels; helped me with branding; provided a wealth of ideas I never would have considered.

I now have systems and processes in place!!! It's all the more brilliant because I've got a Conference on Tuesday that I've organised and now every piece of administration has been thought through.

I cannot recommend Joy highly enough.”

Sandra Green

Founder, Women Leaders Association

“Joy covered the steps from “soup to nuts” to not only launch successfully, but continue to grow my lists, membership ranks and collaborate with others for mutual support and growth. I can’t say enough good things about Joy, her warm presentation style, thoroughness and fabulous information.” Kate Solisti

CEO, Kinship Enterprises

Often when I have hired consultants, I have been left with meaningless stacks of paper and a myriad of theories that I have no idea how to execute. In the end, I feel more overwhelmed and exhausted than I did when I started.

My experience working with Joy Duling has been entirely different. Joy provides ‘hands-on' tactics that are easy to execute. But, best of all, you see results… and fast.”

Michelle Tjelmeland

Founder, Cochlear Implant Awareness Foundation

“Joy Duling is the key to my business growing from an over glorified hobby to a business with professional goals. She has provided perspective that has opened my eyes to greater possibilities.

Uniquely they are not her ideas directly but studies me and my responses to bring out the best in me. A consulting genius.

Jeff McSweeney

Owner, Jeff McSweeney Creative Services

“When it comes to planning business strategies for clients, Joy has a knack for bringing structure and focus to the table and inspiring her clients to grow beyond the expectations and truly maximize their potential.”

Darcy Meinke

Owner, DLM Virtual Solutions

“Joy has an uncanny way of understanding her clients, what their needs are, and how to motivate them to move in the right direction in order to meet their goals. She offers a calm presence that takes the edge off of any “overwhelmed” business professional – no matter what business they are in. I highly recommend A 25 Hour Day with Joy Duling to anyone seeking the direction, focus and resources to move forward to acheive their goals.

Thank you, Joy, for everything that you have helped me with … my business, my clients and my success..”

Sharon Hewitt

Owner, Sharon iDesign

“The Book Marketing Mentors podcast listenership rose over 50 percent after Joy Duling shared her little-known and valuable gems on how creating a membership site is a big revenue builder for authors. Thanks, Joy, for your incredible wisdom and expertise.” Susan Friedmann

Podcast Host & International Best Selling Author, Riches in Niches: How to Make it BIG in a Small Market

“You are amazing – everyone has shared their compliments on the way you ran the meeting and how productive it was! So blessed to have you in our little corner of this world.” Jessica Hayes

Executive Director, Illinois Certification Board

“Joy Duling and her team have been a vital resource for Affordable Assisted Living Coalition since we began in 2006.

With Joy's help, AALC has grown and developed and is able to operate without a large staff. Joy works tirelessly on our behalf, is very responsive and has helped solve any issues we encounter from our logo, website, membership, bookkeeping and even strategic planning.

I'm not sure we would exist without her capable help. I know we wouldn't be as functional.”

Wayne Smallwood

Executive Director, Affordable Assisted Living Coalition

“Joy has been a godsend. She sets up not only your website but a complete system for running your associations' member database and renewals, event registrations and communication tools for members.” Margaret Vaughn

Association Management Specialist, Margaret Vaughn Consulting

“I am not tech-savvy and had no idea where to start, what to charge, which membership site would work best for me and how to make sure that it was easy to use and accessible. Luckily I found Joy!  She answered all of my questions thoroughly. Her attention to detail was remarkable and much appreciated. Mary Derbyshire

Instructor, Alexander Technique

“I previously had a disappointing experience with a membership site but when I heard Joy talking about how it should be done properly, with the right structure, pricing and testing, I realised that I could do a much better job with her help this time.” Jean Macdonald

Author, Love & The New Midlife Woman

“Joy Duling has the uncanny ability to take a raw idea and turn it into an absolute masterpiece. She is a real pleasure to work with.” Mark Rodriguez

President, Auto Care Care

“Joy is a fabulous coach and an extraordinary out-of-the-box thinker. Over the years, I have worked with a number of strategic planners and Joy is by far the most practical strategic consultant I have ever worked with. I USE the plan. Joy's process is well thought through and the end documentation is something that guides you and your organization to success. I love the fact that it is not a 2 inch document that collects dust on a shelf.” Steph Calahan

CEO, Calahan Solutions

“Joy, you ROCKED THE HOUSE! My audience loved you!

I highly recommend working with Joy Duling. She makes everything easy. She provided high-quality swipe copy and supporting materials and gave an outstanding live presentation that my audience loved.

And, our results were spectacular too. If your audience is interested in creating Membership sites, I highly suggest that you make Joy your go-to expert!”

Tamara Monosoff

Creator, Author-to-Income Formula

“Joy provided a targeted, content-laden, teleseminar/interview for SpeakerNet News.

We’ve interviewed 500+ experts for our series, and she was one of top ones who provided high-value, relevant information useful to our listeners.

We appreciate her focused, concise answers to the questions, and her ability to flex with cogent answers to questions. We’d have her back!”

Rebecca Morgan, CSP, CMC

Co-Publisher, SpeakerNet News

“You are making sense of my excitement and madness!  I was very impressed at the amount of research you did for me.

Locating those associations was brilliant. That alone makes me go, ‘Yes! This has been a great investment.”

Jill Weber, PhD

Director, Center for Thriving

How I wish I would have met Joy Duling 15 years ago when I went into business for myself.

You won't find anybody who is gentler and tougher all in one.

I'm an extreme right-brain creative person. My business matters have been left to chance for years. And as a result, I was going nowhere when I could have been celebrating many more business, professional and personal achievements.

I can only image how far along I'd be if our paths had crossed sooner.

Working with Joy has been one of the best investments I've ever made in myself.”

Monica Vest Wheeler

Author/Owner, Turning Empathy Into Action

“Joy and her team are professional, efficient and talented. Whether they are organizing events, coordinating meetings, formatting documents or managing my schedule, I have the utmost confidence in their abilities.

They have given me back much more than an extra hour in my day; they have given me my work-life balance back.

If you are looking for a little or even a lot of extra assistance, I simply cannot recommend Joy and her team enough.

It is one of the best decisions I have made as a trade association executive director.”

Samantha Olds Frey

Executive Director, IL Association of Medicaid Health Plans

“Hi, Joy, I have some awesome news…

Toya Robinson

Executive Director, Metropolitan Oasis Community Development Corporation

“I have never met an individual who possesses so many outstanding skills. Joy is personal, punctual, reliable, trustworthy and is able to take ideas from conceptualization to implementation. Joy is responsible in helping me grow my business by 734% over the past 4 years.

If you are serious about growing your business but need that extra push, fresh perspectives, and out of the box ideas…Joy is just the person you need to connect with..”

Michelle Tjelmeland

Owner, e-websmart

“Joy is one of the best presenters I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with.

We’ve run monthly expert webinars for a few years, and Joy’s was among our highest rated with more than 96% of our audience of 250+ saying they learned something valuable that could help them accomplish their goals.

No wonder: Joy backed up every valuable point with proof, examples and stories that brought everything to life. I can’t wait to work with her again.”

Donald Cowper

Head of Content, Wild Apricot

“Joy spoke on my Star Power Half Hour webinar show and gave a lively, information-packed session!

One attendee wrote in the chat box, “Wow! Amazing info and so well presented. Thank you!”

Joy has really delved deeply into the subject of membership sites and has lots of experience from working with her clients, so she brought great resources into her talk. It was very valuable for everyone.
