As an Association, your number one objective is to provide value to your Members. Without member value and benefits, your Association will fail to grow and ultimately be extinct. Many Associations are delivering unprecedented value to their members by embracing the latest technology in Live Streaming and Webinars.
For those Associations Live Streaming their event, here is the reward they are getting from their Members.

These are just a fraction of the hundreds of comments that come in from the virtual audience. When was the last time your Association did something new and innovative and received a raving “Pat-On-The-Back” for doing so? These virtual Members are no different than your Members.
For an investment of $25,000 to $50,000, you can deliver one of the best benefits your Members will have received, possibly EVER – Your Education, a Sense of Belonging, Engagement, Community and CE. Stop treating those Members who can’t come to your conference as second-class Members and start planning to live stream your education from your next conference. It will be the best investment your Association has ever made.
While budgets are a necessary part of the process to invest in new technology, Digitell’s experienced team and innovative programs have created the ability for Associations to obtain an ROI from Live Streaming, in excess of the budgeted, or invested, amount. Understanding how to monetize your content and turn your content into a money making machine is part of the benefit of working with Digitell.
