What you may be experiencing

Creating a membership probably feels like a big leap with no actual guarantee of success.

You may waver back and forth between really wanting to believe in the possibilities of membership, and moments of panic where you wonder if your idea will even work.

What happens if you invest all this time and energy, then no one comes?  What if you put your professional reputation on the line, promote this thing all over the place, and it bombs?  What if there's some ‘gotcha' waiting out there that you don't know about yet?

Still, your gut is saying to go for it, so that's what you intend to do.


What you actually want: 

To be able to move forward with your membership, with total confidence, believing that the concept you've created is going to work

 What Others Say

“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
Founder, Center for Thriving

“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
Alexander Technique Instructor

“I thought a membership programme would be way too difficult for me, certainly not a thing for me. But right from the beginning, Joy introduced the subject in such a clear and easy to follow manner that she had my attention.  She addressed all the important stuff. It helped me a great deal to see that this was actually going to be do-able.”

Andrea Hofman

“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


What you may be experiencing:

You did it!  You got your membership up and running!  But there have definitely been some surprises along the way.

Maybe your tech is causing issues.  Maybe people aren't engaging like you thought they would.  Maybe not enough people are transitioning from your free offerings to your paid membership.

The early days of running a membership can be anxiety-provoking indeed.  You may wonder if there's a pivot that needs to happen or if things will improve if you just stay the course.
 

What you actually want:

To have a membership that is clearly working – members are joining quickly, engaging enthusiastically and renewing without hesitation

What Others Say

The quality of what Joy 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
Women Leaders Association

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

Margaret Vaughn
Executive Director, IL Rural Health Assoc

“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 tactices that are easy to execute. But, best of all, you see results… and fast.”

Michelle Tjelmeland
Founder, Cochlear Implant Awareness Foundation


What you may be experiencing:

The good news is that your membership is thriving!  That part probably feels awesome, doesn't it?

You're likely thrilled that what you've created is having impact… but there's also a bit of worry in the back of your brain.  How do you keep up this pace?  How do you continue to grow and serve people the way you want?

Some days, you may feel like you're on a hamster wheel, running your legs as fast as you can, but frustrated that it seems like you're only maintaining the status quo.

You're drawn to the idea of doing more with your membership, but can't quite figure out how to squeeze it all in.

 

What you actually want:

To have a thriving membership that operates so flawlessly that it practically runs itself, freeing you to expand and lead as your heart desires.

What Others Say

“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 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 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
