|The Story of Member.buzz
Member.buzz is the premier online platform for membership-based organizations allowing users to easily create communities and perform all the tasks related to managing vibrant and engaging team spaces. But where did they come from, and where are they headed?
The evolution of Member.buzz
Member.buzz founder, William Yeack came up with the idea for Member.buzz during his time as the President of his University's of Alumni Club. As the club’s membership grew in size, Yeack became frustrated by the many online platforms and tools required to manage the group. He was new to the city and was looking to get involved and make friends.
Once William and the other Alumni started their club, they faced the same difficulties that every organized group faces: organizing events and having meetings, and coordinating everything they needed to do to keep their alumni club running smoothly.
However, when they began looking for solutions to help them with their club’s day-to-day running, they realized there was no single solution in the marketplace that perfectly matched their need to solve all of their problems at once.
So William decided to create his own platform specifically designed to address all the issues related to the smooth running of their alumni club. Soon, their alumni club began to grow and flourish, and they were able to quickly and easily organize complicated events, including an annual gala. In fact, their alumni club’s yearly gala became so renowned that William and Kate attended it. Yes, that’s Prince William and Kate; the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!
The birth of Member.buzz
At first, the club management platform created by William and his friends was just for themselves. But they were soon sharing their platform with other friends who needed the same tools to help them organize their own clubs and groups.
It didn’t take long for William and his partners to recognize that the same set of issues and problems they faced when setting up their alumni club were the same obstacles every club, team, and organization faced. So William decided to turn the platform into a commercial product, and Member.buzz was formed. A platform specifically designed to help manage all the things needed to do to build a viable online community; managing memberships, collecting fees, selling tickets, invoicing vendors, posting articles, and all the other tasks related to managing and growing a team or club.
