If you’re anything like most trade associations, you regularly face the conflicting objectives of increasing value for your members while trying not to increase membership fees. Associations that do both effectively will see increased membership and prosperity. Those that can’t do both face the decision to reduce services or increase fees, which can both be detrimental.
Increase Your Association’s Revenue
Trade associations often consist of natural rental transaction providers or consumers. For example, a photography association consists of photographers who need to rent equipment as well as photography equipment providers. A home staging association has members who are home stagers and home staging rental companies.
This mix of consumers and providers creates an opportunity for trade associations to provide new value. By hosting a rental marketplace on your website, you can place rental companies in front of their ideal customers and receive additional revenue from the service.
Relentless offers private rental marketplaces that provide one-stop-shopping convenience and economies of scale for trade associations like yours.
Your members can rent equipment and supplies directly from your marketplace, while rental vendors can connect with their customers through EasyRentals. Your members will view this as a valuable benefit of their association membership.
Relentless creates these marketplaces at no cost to you, and we provide ongoing technical support. The marketplace is white-labeled and branded for your association.
You benefit from new revenue streams generated by some of the revenue received from storefront subscriptions. Your association incurs no investment, operational costs, or need for additional staff.
What Is EasyRentals?
EasyRentals integrates with your website as an e-commerce marketplace, much like Shopify. With EasyRentals, your members can conveniently rent all the supplies and equipment they need to do their work. Rental operators sign up to get listed on the platform, and consumers can easily find the best deals from various providers.
Members who are providers have direct access to their consumers, and consumers have a greater selection of products to choose from. In both cases, your association becomes a valued point of access!
The EasyRentals marketplace offers consumers unique benefits that they can only find on your association’s website. Most importantly, they get one-stop shopping with a larger selection of inventory than any single vendor provides.
Rental operators gain unique value as well, including:
- Immediate access to their ideal customers
- Higher marketing visibility
- Greater sales opportunities
