We've just added a new feature to the Billing Configuration so that organizations who allow members to switch to a new plan at renewal can restrict them to only plans that have higher dues. All you have to do is check the "Restrict plan changes to higher dues plans" checkbox to turn it on. (And the "Offer Plan Change at Renewal" box of course.)
The comparison works by comparing "annualized" dues. For example, if a member is currently in a plan that charges $100 per year but the org offers a monthly plan that charges $10 per month, the monthly plan will show up ($120/yr). If the org offers a two-year plan at $150 per term, it will not show up ($75/yr).
The comparison also takes into account tiered dues (provided that the member has a valid employee count) and dues overrides.
Please let us know if you have any questions about this.
Click to Tweet is a simple yet elegant service that allows you to get people to tweet your content, which is also an easy way to get more traffic to your website or blog. The application and plugin are 100% free to use, all you need is a Twitter account. In this tutorial, we’ll be describing how to use Click to Tweet and some ways to get the most out of it.
Why Create Click to Tweet Links?
Click to Tweet gives you the ability to direct readers to share specific content on Twitter. You can generate links directly from the Click to Tweet dashboard after logging in. If you have a WordPress site, you can download a free plugin and get readers to share specific blog posts or pages. You can also get view analytics reports that provide you with lots of useful information about the people who tweet your content.
Many people may enjoy your content and could be willing to share it. At the same time, it might not occur to them if you don’t give them a prompt. It also takes a few steps to share something on Twitter. Click to Tweet cuts down on these steps and makes it very easy for people to share something.
How to Make Best Use of Click to Tweet
There are many social media buttons you can install on your website, including ones for Twitter. These can be useful to get people to share your content if they liked something you posted. Click to Tweet, however, allows you to focus on particular areas within your content.
In order to get the most out of Click to Tweet, you should keep several things in mind. The areas that you might want to highlight for tweeting include central points of your article. Look for areas in your content that emphasize crucial points. For example, if you are writing a post about getting more Twitter followers, you might want to highlight something like:
“This is how I got 10,000 new followers in under a month. Click to Tweet.”

1. Getting the Documentation Done
In today's changing online world Two Things need to happen.
One: be sure your community businesses document their individual products and/or services for search (even if they are not selling online), and Two: have a program in place to do this work for your busy business owners as part of their membership, or business license. Otherwise you are likely to have a community-wide website with nothing in it and poor overall search results.
2. Using Documentation to Dramatically Improve Community Promotion
Once there is a loaded community database of business services and products (that we build for you), a mobile app for every business, and master mobile app for the entire community, your community will have something significant to advertise. In addition, search engines and your new Chamber Lobby website will contribute significant results.
Besides rebuilding the entire event registration system to be 100% mobile dynamic we are also continuing to improve the platform in many ways. One of those ways is to provide you with an exciting event presentation page that you can now use in your social media, website, text messages (using tinyurl.com), and via email notifications. Below there is an image of how it looks, and below that, shows an image on how you get to this link.
Farther down you will see that when you add a new event you can now instantly add that to the calendar... so it now goes both ways... you can start at the calendar and then create an event around what is in the calendar, or start by building the event in the event registration system first, then add it to the calendar (as shown in last image below).

Your business will never bring in enough revenue if people don't know about you. Most businesses don't fail because their service or product is inferior to everything else on the market. They fail because no one knows about them or they don't differentiate themselves from the competition.
But it doesn't matter how good your offerings are or how loved they could be. If people don't know about them, your business will never succeed.
Some businesses think that social media has replaced advertising.
It hasn't replaced it but it has changed it. People don't want clever taglines anymore.
But you still need to get their attention.
If you don't have the budget for Super Bowl ads (or any other major media presentation), then you'll like these budget-friendly ideas.
Social Media Paid Ads
In the beginning of social media, businesses could post and get seen. No longer. These days without engagement, only a fraction of your audience will see your posts. Even when they chose to follow you!
As dismaying as this may seem, social media paid advertising is one of the least expensive forms of advertising out there. It's not as cheap as it once was but it does have some very good targeting options that can help ensure you will reach people who are most likely in the market for your services or products.
Ever notice that item you were just checking on Amazon appears all over the Internet afterward? That's not some sort of sign. That's remarketing or retargeting. It allows you to present paid ads to people who have already shown an interest in your site. Those are the folks who are at least remotely interested in what you have to offer. Since purchases are an emotional buy, "following" people until they make an emotional decision often benefits you.
While you're considering this avenue, don't forget about Facebook's pixel that can present targeted information to people who have visited your website in the past.
Websites with banner ads often are inexpensive from an advertising perspective. Look for industry experts with websites or online personal pages (like blogs or private online communities) where your ideal demographic hangs out. If they have ads on their site, ask them about their ad policy. They may also have newsletter ad opportunities or may accept advertorials/sponsored content. While the latter falls more under marketing, it can be very valuable in reaching your ideal audience.
Ask for details about the website's demographics and click-throughs and what you get for your advertising money.
Finally, it's important to understand that hard sells aren't appreciated by anyone. Clever slogans may get noticed in Super Bowl ads and commercial awards shows but your customers are looking for sources that will help them know, like, and trust the person they're buying from. You need your advertising to be focused on helping and not disrupting your audience. You do this by answering questions and solving problems that they care about.
