Frequently Asked Questions
Why should my organization care about Hum?
Hum uses data to help associations pivot in real time. Hum will start by unifying all of your existing systems (website, AMS, LMS, MarTech, etc) to give one unified view of interactions across all digital properties. For many associations, this unification is huge. But Hum does more than package data - we pull out insights to help associations act on their newfound intelligence. Hum uncovers opportunities to pivot in real-time, based on the way members behave on their digital properties. Hum helps associations mobilize audiences, engage members and grow revenue.
What does your sales process look like?
We want to make learning about Hum easy and stress free. You will have the chance to walk through the Hum platform one-on-one with our Chief Growth Officer. If you like what you see, we set up a follow up meeting to review use cases and next steps specific to your organization.
What is the Hum platform?
There is a team of real Hum-ans behind Hum who are here to help every step of the way. We provide initial training and integration services, as well as actively help association staff use Hum on an ongoing basis to achieve their goals.
How do I know if my organization is ready for Hum?
However, not every association is ready for the data-driven engagement strategy that Hum enables. We don't want to be another piece of technology that goes unused. Ideal Hum organizations have a desire to be nimble and entrepreneurial. They will know that their current methods of gathering member feedback (static surveys, post-event intelligence gathering, etc) don't cut it. Before onboarding Hum, an organization should show an active interest in improving the way their members, subscribers and partners digitally interact with their organization. They should know that personalized and digital-first is the association experience of the future, and they should want to invest in that future.
What type of staffing does Hum require?
|Director of Marketing / Marketing Manager: The marketing department is often the primary operator of Hum because many of the activation activities that Hum orchestrates will be led by marketing. Hum includes campaign and commerce modules that help marketers mobilize audiences across their MarTech stack, and track the success of these campaigns. In terms of consistent, daily use of the tool, marketers are likely to be the most frequent users.
Director of Communications / Education: The news, publishing, and education departments are also ideal Hum operators. Hum's content module will help the teams continuously improve content. From topic refinement, to gaining a better understanding of how audiences interact with content artifacts, to improving the way content is distributed across channels, the content teams will find wonderful uses for the Hum platform.
Director of Membership/ Community Manager: Hum's audience module shares critical member, audience, and partner intelligence that will transform the way the membership team communicates with current members and prospects.
