Schipul - The Web Marketing Company Helps American Marketing Association, Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter Improve Their Web Presence
DALLAS, November 27, 2006 -- Schipul - The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading worldwide provider of Web-based solutions for associations and other membership organizations, has launched a revitalized Web site for the Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter of the American Marketing Association. The new site, www.dfwama.com, features enhanced content and functionality on a stable, secure Web platform.
"As the preeminent marketing organization in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, we put great value on having a professional and highly visible presence on the Web," said Jim Dawson, President, DFW Chapter, AMA. "With Schipul''s help, we have migrated from an open source platform that was susceptible to security breeches to a stable, secure platform that automates many aspects of association management."
Powered by Schipul''s proprietary Tendenci® association management application (www.tendenci.com), the new DFW AMA Web site simplifies member communication, database updates and online event registration and payment. This "all-in-one" solution enables the rapidly growing chapter, which has just one part-time staff person, to operate more efficiently and connect effectively with members, marketers and communications professionals throughout the business community.
To make the site visible to major search engines such as Google and Yahoo! and attract new visitors, Tendenci also automates search engine optimization functionality. Finally, Tendenci''s integrated Really Simple Syndication (RSS) capabilities enable anyone who wants to stay updated on the online activities of the AMA''s DFW chapter to subscribe to automatically receive updates as they happen.
Nationally, the AMA is one of the largest professional organizations for corporate and business marketers, market researchers, academics and marketing students with more than 38,000 members. The DFW AMA Chapter is the 8th largest chapter in the country with more than 650 members and hosts over 50 marketing programs and events annually.
"Tendenci makes it easy to cater to the needs of members -- whether it''s simplifying the process of posting jobs and resumes on the Career Center, developing and distributing electronic newsletters, or posting articles, news releases and podcasts to the site," said Ed Schipul, president and CEO. "With Tendenci, the DFW AMA will be able to capitalize on new sources of revenue while delivering greater value to members and prospective members."
