Today marks one year since our website launched with MembersFirst. I just wanted to thank all of you for your assistance in the development and implementation of an amazing website. Last year was one of our best years for sales, and a large part of that is because of the effort each of you put into it.
I really enjoyed working with Members First on the development of the Colleton River Club website. I have worked on many website projects, and this was the most content rich project I have ever been a part of. The Members First process and their established data collection tools and milestones were critical in keeping the project moving forward, and the end result is a beautiful website that truly reflects the feel of the community. Post launch I have found this to be one of the most user friendly platform for internal changes and content management.
As part of the redesign, our goal was to capture the lifestyle we have to offer but to do that in an engaging way. MembersFirst exceeded our expectations with the end result. We have received increased interest since launching the new design and are thrilled! The support and attention to detail we receive through our partnership reinforces we are partnered with a top notch company!
When redesigning our association’s website we wanted to work with a company that understood the club culture and made the process as easy as possible since we are also managing our own clubs outside of the organization. Partnering with MembersFirst for our redesign was a great choice. Having worked with other companies to redesign club websites in the past, we were so impressed with how easy it was to complete our website build with the MembersFirst team! The process was organized, efficient, and clear every step of the way. The design team brought us great ideas and really turned our vision into reality. Our members have enjoyed the new look and easy to use interactive site.
After years of working with different website providers in the club industry, I was blown away with how different my experience was with MembersFirst! From the moment we starting working with them I noticed how very organized they were. They explained the process step by step and always provided several options to make certain my ‘vision’ was met. As a busy club professional, what I appreciated most was the customer service after the project was completed. MembersFirst is there every step of the way to make sure my needs are always met.
Metedeconk had the pleasure of working closely with MembersFirst to build and implement a 27-hole tee time management system. MembersFirst was extremely open to all of our suggestions and ideas, further proving to us that they wanted to build the best possible system for our needs. We remain thrilled with the product to date and their customer service is second to none. They consistently release updates to stay ahead of the industry and are always available to train new staff on all of their products.
Thorny Lea embarked on a full website overhaul in 2017 including upgrades to our desktop and mobile site and the addition of online tee times. The transition team at MembersFirst were incredibly patient, knowledgeable and helpful during the process. The Thorny Lea committee who worked alongside MembersFirst were beyond pleased with the work and communication that the MembersFirst team delivered upon. Our members now have a fresh looking and user friendly site and our golf operations team is taking full advantage of the online tee time booking system. I would highly recommend the services of MembersFirst when looking at your club’s digital platforms.
In today's highly competitive marketplace, being found online is a prerequisite for every club. We selected MembersFirst because of their industry knowledge and SEO expertise, and our results are impressive; 75% increase in website traffic in January alone, as well as the #1 ranking in 20 keywords we selected on Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
I was very impressed with the entire team at MembersFirst. We have a very lean staff at The Minneapolis Woman's Club and the professional project management skills at MembersFirst were key in implementing the refresh of our website. [Our Project Manager] kept us on track and his experience was key in working through the many decisions inherent in a project of this size. The new website exceeded our expectations in both design and function!
