Tip of the Week!

Studies have shown that customizing and personalizing your emails, even slightly, can increase your open and response rates, which is why the use of mail merge tags within your emails is so beneficial.

To help you personalize your custom emails to your members, we've included quite a few mail merge tags that you can include in your messages. These tags allow you to include dynamic content such as first name, club name, spouse name, nick name, etc.

Did you know you can insert these tags in your subject line to increase open rates as well? Apart from adding them to the body of your email, you can even paste these values in your subject line to appeal to your recipients. Sending an invite to your next club event? Add their first name to the subject line for a more personal invitation! For more information on how to insert mail merge tags to your emails, refer to our help article.

Tip of the Week: Sponsor Ads

Did you know that you can control the pages you want your sponsor ads to display?

The Sponsorship module allows clubs to place text or image sponsor ads on their own website as a means of generating revenue. Clubs have always had the ability to display these ads on the homepage, bulletin and on all subsequent secondary pages. As our way of providing you with more custom options, you now have more control over which secondary pages you want these ads to display on, including the photo album list, speakers list, speakers details page, event details page and more.

To view the complete list and choose which pages to display the ads on, click on the Sponsor Settings link from the Sponsors page. If the option for subsquent pages is turned off, the content on those pages will expand across what would have been the reserved right column meant for those ads.

We're constantly making improvements to the ClubRunner platform and would love to hear your feedback and suggestions on what you'd like to see. Email us at feedback@clubrunner.ca with your suggestions!
