Connect 2 Clubs Blog

We develop a lot of websites for a lot of different kinds of clubs, all over the United States.  We’re like proud parents when we’ve worked with a club’s designated webmaster or a group of folks from a club and their new website is finally launched.  It’s an exciting time and we strive to create a website where all of the club members are proud of their club’s presence on Web. 

We’ve found that people with the like-minded predominant passion of our clubs will often search club websites looking for other groups (same like-minded passion) in a particular area.  Thus, we encourage all of our clubs to have some sort of links page that showcases sister clubs, not only for the camaraderie that it creates but also because it’s beneficial for the search ability (search engine optimization) for both sites.

Here’s an overview about links and why your site needs them.

Okay, I’m going to show my age a bit here.  When I was growing up it was almost a holiday when the new Sears & Roebuck catalog was delivered to our doorstep…especially the Christmas edition!  My brother and I had our Big Chief tablets and pencils handy to make our lists to Santa and practically tackled the postman when the wondrous book finally arrived.  We always fought over who got to look at it first.  It was a really big deal for us.  Sears stopped printing their “Wish Books” in 1993, but they sure provided me a lot of fond “wishful” times and memories.

Your club newsletter, if done right, has the ability to give your members that same level of excitement.  Okay, maybe not “Wish Book” exhilaration, but a well-thought-out newsletter does a lot to:

•    keep everybody on the same page as far as events, meetings, and fundraisers,
•    spotlight individual members and past events, and,
•    keep club members excited about being a part of the club.

Joining a club has helped many members realize what is possible with their particular interest, learn more about it, and make new friends with similar interests. In fact, for many, membership in the club is as important the hobby itself. So, it makes sense for someone that is new to a particular hobby or interest to find and at least meet up with their local like-minded club or association.

But trying to find the clubs can sometimes be a hassle. 

There are many online club directories, but based on what we’ve observed, often visitors go away frustrated and disappointed - many club lists have as many broken links and bad contacts as they have good ones!

So, in May, 2011, we took the plunge and started a list of known clubs called Connect 2 Clubs Directory (www.connect2clubsdirectory.com).  I use the word "known" because we wanted to filter out clubs that have dissolved, clubs that never were, and clubs for whom the contact information is no longer valid.
