SAN FRANCISCO, June 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With 51% of associations reporting flat or declining membership and nearly 40% saying a lack of engagement is the reason members don't renew, national associations like AARP, The American Nurse Association (ANA), Institute of Supply Management, and ESMO, are turning to ON24, the marketing technology leader helping associations create live, always-on and personalized digital experiences to facilitate awareness, provide value to members, and increase revenue streams.
Associations have traditionally relied on in-person chapter events and regional conferences for member engagement. In the digital age, associations are evolving to use webinar programs powered by the ON24 Platform for their programming, certifications, and training needs. Webinars give associations the ability to engage global audiences and provide members with valuable content. Additionally, webinars optimize resources, by saving associations time and money while attracting more sponsorship and revenue opportunities.
"Associations depend on ON24 to help connect with and provide value to their unique memberships," says Joe Hyland, CMO, ON24. "We're proud to help associations better understand their audience and members, to create high value content, provide insights for potential sponsors, adapt to new industry trends and more. It's a true win-win: members get more insightful, relevant content, while associations better understand their key stakeholders."
Leading associations accelerate their growth and reach through ON24, achieving the following outcomes and results:

Driving Attendees and Conversions: AARP set an all-time high for registrants thanks to ON24, with nearly 14,000 people signed up for its "The Health Care Law: What It Means for People with Medicare" webcast. The event also experienced a greater than 50% registrant to attendee conversion rate.
Saving time and money: ESMO achieved an estimated 25% savings over its previous webinar solution. Along with a lower-priced webinar platform, there were additional labor and time savings from not having to deal with accessibility and technical issues.
