Although the MemberVana’s Membership Management Solution is new, we’re not. We’ve been working with Bar Associations and Chambers of Commerce for over 20 years, building custom websites and member management solutions. But not every organization can afford a custom solution. A couple of smaller organizations with limited budgets asked us for any recommendations, so we looked at the existing market and we found tons of systems that were expensive, restrictive, and in many cases, insanely outdated.
We were also depressed to find a lot of companies that offered tempting free or low cost solutions, but either limited features or made money by adding on transaction fees to things like subscriptions and donations. We didn’t think that was fair. Rather than giving organizations the tools needed to grow, these companies only make those tools available to organizations large enough to afford them. And when they did grow, they ended up being penalized through outrageous transaction fees.
With MemberVana, we wanted to take a different approach. We set out to make a full-featured Membership Management Solution available at all price levels, so a new or small organization would have the same powerful tools as big organizations with big budgets. And we wanted to make everything available at price-points that were reasonable, without taking a cut off the top of your hard work growing your membership and seeking donations.
It was a tall order. To do all that, we decided not to build a complete platform from scratch. Instead, our system is built on top of WordPress and is extended by well-designed third-party plugins from leading developers. And then we built a system and a custom interface that makes all of those different parts mesh together as a full-fledged Membership Management Solution, with a uniform, easy-to-use interface.
As a MemberVana User, your organization receives a turnkey solution — our plugins and themes, licensed third-party plugins, and a top-tier web host — for a single monthly or yearly payment.
Oh, and there’s no contract. Ever.
That’s why we believe that MemberVana can help you and your organization find Membership Management Bliss.
