Are you reaching the members of your association or club in an interesting and impactful way? Although many people may believe that digital media is the new frontier, many people still prefer to hold a magazine or newsletter in their hands to enjoy the reading experience, highlight or take notes, or easily tear out pages of information or coupons. At Xpress Graphics, we are the Palm Desert printer to help you with designing and printing a membership magazine.
Why Print a Member Magazine
Printing a membership magazine can be an added value to your members, providing relevant and often exclusive information for the organization. After joining your group, these timely mailings are an effective way to continue member communication and participation. You may or may not choose to include advertising in your magazine, but often the number and/or demographics of your members can be a significant benefit to attracting advertisers, the proceeds of which may either fund the magazine or become a fundraiser for your group.
What to Include in a Membership Magazine
Of course, you’re the best source for knowing what should be in your magazine, but some suggestions include: a letter from the president or other relevant officer; news about your organization, a calendar of upcoming events, features about events or products; a feature about a member; political or other news that may affect your members such as new laws or other policies; info graphics; coupons or advertisements; and many photos. Most people enjoy seeing photos of themselves so showcase your organization’s events or even host a contest for members to send in relevant photos.
