  • TIP: Personalize your club
  • Word of mouth is powerful. And it’s everywhere online.
  • TIP: Empower Your Own
  • Share photos and videos of your events with your members. Put them online, where they can easily share & download. - Facebook Page (members can tag themselves & others) - Flickr account for photo streams (embed on website) - YouTube or Vimeo to share videos (and embed on your website)

TPC Sawgrass does this with weddings and private events. - Pinterest page to "pin" event photography that can be shared virally. - Showcase your venue space, Chef specialities, friendly employees and unique property features. - Link to content created about your venue (wedding blogs, event recaps, newspaper clippings)
  • TIP: Measuring Impact of your Program
