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.
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, and over $4000 more their second year!
One of our clubs setup this year landed a $5000 sponsor!
Pre-paid Guest Passes and Concessions
In 2019 we launched two new prepaid Guest Pass options. The first is similar to a virtual punch card, for example, members could purchase 10 passes, and get 2 free. The quantities are up to you. Members can then self deduct passes from your check-in kiosk OR your front gate attendant can deduct passes from a member’s account when they enter the pool.
We also launched an Unlimited Guest Pass feature. So for example, members could purchase a plan where they are allowed to bring 2 guests per visit all Summer. Or 3 guests, etc. Whatever amount your club chooses. You can price these plans however you want. Our first club to try out this feature made over $1200 off-the-bat, selling a $50 Unlimited Plan.
Many clubs are on the honor system for bringing guests, and we’ve seen a surprising bump in sales at these clubs! That should tell you members are actually willing to pay for guests when it’s made easy (and cashless)!
By eliminating unnecessary steps it takes to become a member, you’ll find families join more often. It’s that simple! This is true for everything your club sells online. Whether that’s swim or tennis team dues, events, concessions, skip-workday payments, swim lessons, parties, and so on.
How does your club get started?
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. It helps if you can give us access to any Facebook groups with available photos. We also have a huge selection of stock photos we can use. We will set up 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 tennis court grid and other features right away (before paying for the next calendar year).
What’s the next step?
When everything looks good 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.
Call for a Board vote…
We are on a 4-6 week waiting list to setup new clubs. If you’d like to be added to our calendar, please get Board approval, have a board member sign the service contract below and we can get your club in the queue. Thanks!
