Should a volunteer really be running your e-commerce?
If a pipe breaks at your club, do you call a board member to fix it? No, you call a professional plumber. Unfortunately, most clubs don’t hire a professional company to maintain their website and e-commerce, leaving your site unsecure and behind industry standards.
Consider this: your organization is essentially a small business, making anywhere between 75k to 250k a year. Is it worth putting a volunteer in charge of your most important tool for receiving income and finding new members?
We all know no one wants to be on the Board forever. Whoever manages your site now, will transition out eventually. With PoolDues you get a consistent service to run one of the most important aspects of your club.
How can your club save money?
Most clubs are already paying for website hosting, which is around $200-300 per year. Tennis court reservation software is typically $50 per court per year. So, for a 6-court club, that’s $300 per year. Clubhouse reservation software is typically another $100-200 per year. SSL certificates are around $30-40 per year.
After becoming a Pool Dues site, you can stop paying separate fees for all those services. Not only will your overall bill go down, but all of your services will be in one place.
How can your club make extra revenue with Pool Dues?
Sponsor / Ad revenue
Real estate agents, dentists and carry-out restaurants LOVE advertising on neighborhood swim and tennis sites because your visitor traffic is either local residents OR prospective residents!
Your club’s ads (and only your club’s) are shown at the footer of your site AND within the Member Check In whenever someone checks in or reserves a tennis court. With that amount of exposure in mind, charging $300-500 a year for a Sponsorship is more than reasonable.
Our flagship club did over $2000 more in sponsorship sales their first year.
Sounds great, how do we get started?
After purchasing, we will begin setting up your site as a subdomain, for example, yourclubname.pooldues.com. We will create an outstanding homepage based on your club. If you can give us access to any Facebook groups with available photos that helps. We also have a huge selection of stock photos we can use. We will setup all your membership tiers (Family, Singles, Seniors) with the correct Initiation or Pool Bond fees.
Once ready, the subdomain will be live for actual purchases, reservations, pool check-in, new sponsor revenue, and everything else. We can also import in your current membership so they can use the court grid and other features right away (before paying for the next calendar year).
What’s the next step?
We can immediately point your main domain to our server and your new Pool Dues-powered site is live! Your current domain will no longer point to your old site, and your Board can all celebrate with champagne like a NASA launch crew.
Or, you can wait for the perfect moment to launch the site. Days, weeks, it’s totally up to you. We have some clubs that are holding off for the tennis season to finish or for their fiscal year to start. During this time, you can use your gorgeous looking new site for prospective member recruitment (we recommend boosting Facebook posts within a 1-2 mile area of your club).
So a slow roll-out is possible?
Yes. You are welcome to run your old and new site simultaneously. We even have built-in settings to redirect pages like your tennis grid and clubhouse reservation calendar back to your old site.
We know transitioning websites seems like a big deal. Whether it’s this year or five years from now, your club WILL have to modernize. Delaying the inevitable costs your Boards Members their time, and it forces your members to use outdated methods for simple things like reserving a court or paying the club.
The most important thing is that you begin moving in the right direction. That starts with a Board Member stepping up and saying, “It’s time we do this”.
Call for a Board vote, and get started…
Your site is in great hands
