Register for the Q3 Workshop & Luncheon Today

Marketing General LogoOSAE Q3 Workshop: Sept. 15, 2017 from 9:00 - 11:30 a.m.

Join your association and industry peers at the Renaissance Downtown Columbus on Friday, Sept. 15 for an insightful workshop from Marketing General's Harold Maurer, CDM, CeM Senior Director, Account Services, that will shed light on how the changing behaviors of our members and clients are affecting how we must interact with them. Gone are the days of "push marketing." Now, we face the era of "pull marketing." Those who want us will find us, which is why it is so important for us to re-examine how we communicate and share information. 

“Successful membership growth programs demand a mix of broad marketing experience,  applied practical knowledge and hard-won intuition with an exceptional commitment to clients," according to Maurer. 

Those who participate in the 2.5 hour workshop, before the luncheon meeting, will walk away with insights on:

  1. Membership tactics - shifting techniques from traditional push marketing to the newer, more member-driven pull marketing
  2. Product sales - insights designed to assist suppliers and affiliate members in getting more "touches" with their clients, and 
  3. Site/Property Sales and Marketing -  recognizing the differences between relationship versus transactional marketing

 Maurer will also touch on:

  • Promotion in the 21st  Century
  • What motivates prospects to become buyers
  • What constitutes value to today's business professional
  • The styles of buying vs. styles of selling, and
  • The first touch – a new five-second rule

Registration Fee (includes luncheon): Members: $99.00; Non-members: $129.00
