The next step in having a successful club is a great club website. But first, you’ll need some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing. We have seven solid examples of club websites from all different types of organizations. Tips for a Good Club Website As you browse these club websites, take some notes on how they’ve set things up. Some things to look out for: 1. Mobile friendly So many individuals will access your club website through their mobile device. To ensure they’re having a great user experience you need your website to be mobile friendly. This means your club website will load quickly and display properly on all mobile devices. 2. Membership levels When you set up your club, you’ll want to include different membership levels (free, student, family, professional, etc.). These levels are very important to include on your club website so those looking to join can see which membership is right for them. 3. Separate join and donate pages Including separate “Join Us” and “Donate” pages are crucial for your club website. This gives a clear place for people to make online payments for membership fees and donations. 4. Event calendars and registration Your members want to know when you’re having events and a calendar is a great way to visually show this. If your event requires registration be sure to include this on your club website as well. 5. Membership directories Some clubs have public directories for their members. If this is a feature for your club, be sure to make this available on your club’s website. Some clubs even have a featured member that is highlighted on the home page. 6. Images of members and events Your members are the core of your club! Having a photo gallery, featured images and slideshows of pictures from club events and members having fun is key for a good club website. 7. Members-only sections If there are resources that are specific to your club members only, having a members-only section on your website is key. This allows for public facing content to be available for those looking for more info about your club AND a log in page for your members to access their members-only information, content and events. 7 WildApricot Club Website Examples All these websites were built using WildApricot’s membership management software (that’s us!) — a software that’s easy to build any sort of club website in a completely comprehensive way.
