Meet Today’s Membership Marketing Experts

Meet the Experts at Membership Marketing Secrets: 2020 Workshop

You might be wondering, how does one become a membership marketing expert? And how can these experts tell you how to run your company more profitably, without ever having walked a day in your shoes?

Widely recognized as the leader in membership marketing for magazine publishers, Mequoda Systems currently operates 15 membership marketing systems in partnership with some of the country’s leading content brands including Prime Publishing, Yankee Publishing, and Cabot Heritage Corporation.

Hands-on membership marketing strategy is one of the many duties we perform on behalf of our publishing partners when building and growing their niche membership websites. We also maintain a robust independent research operation that identifies and documents membership marketing best practices at more than 100 organizations that include America’s top magazine publishers.

And Mequoda workshops have a long legacy of creating publishing success stories over the last decade.

When you complete our two-day Membership Marketing Secrets: 2020 Workshop, you’ll be on a first-name basis with the very experts who know how to turn your publishing business around — as they have for many others.

The Membership Marketing Executives You’ll Meet

This entire membership marketing secrets event will be led by me, Kim Mateus, as Chief Strategy Officer at Mequoda Systems. In 2004, I started with Mequoda as employee #2, and have since overseen strategic planning for many of Mequoda’s publishing partners. Having guided the development of more than 20 subscription and membership marketing systems, my team and I monitor and maintain a robust best-practices database of marketing techniques and business processes that helps power all Mequoda partner marketing programs. My focus on client content strategies is a natural extension of my journalism education and background.
