Overview

Every prospective member’s first project is the Membership Application project. We created the application process similar to the project experience so you know how a SharedTEAMS membership works from the very beginning.

During the Membership Application process, our team creates a Member Profile based on your business details. This profile serves as a living document that is used to help determine if your business is a good fit for our membership. If you decide to become a member, the Member Profile is referenced by all team members for every project and is updated as needed to ensure your future projects contain accurate details.

What to Expect

At the beginning of the Membership Application process, we request that you complete the membership application form. From there, we will set up a phone call with you to further discuss your business and marketing needs.

Using the details from the application form and phone call, our team develops your Member Profile. If you have a website for your business, we may pull details from that for your Member Profile, too. This profile contains important details about your business, including contact information, offerings, target audience, competition, messaging, and branding.

We may perform mild research to add details to your Member Profile. The final deliverable is a Google Site that is set to not be displayed on public search engines, which means only those with the link will be able to view it, including you and our team.

After we present the Member Profile to you, we encourage you to provide feedback. After finalizing the Member Profile with your requests, our team determines if your business would be a good fit for a SharedTEAMS membership. If you are, we give you the opportunity to sign up. If we don’t believe your business will be a good fit, we will recommend other marketing avenues for you to pursue. Either way, we want to help you be successful.

Performance

This Membership Application process gives you the SharedTEAMS experience before you commit to membership, which helps you determine whether we are a good fit for your marketing needs and business.

The Member Profile offers our team a full picture of your business, which, if you choose to sign up for membership, will help us complete every project in a more streamlined manner.

Our team references the Member Profile for every project, which means you don’t have to repeat yourself in multiple projects concerning basic business details, saving you time in the long run.

Project Phases

Our team will execute this project in defined phases and we will keep you updated on progress within each phase of development, giving you the ability to provide feedback, direction or collaborate with our team throughout every step of the process.

1) Membership Application Form

During this initial phase, you will complete the membership application form.

We developed this form with you in mind. If you can provide our team with more details about your business and answer most of the questions, if not all, it will help our team manage your marketing programs going forward should you choose to sign up for membership.

2) Application Phone Call 

During the next phase, you schedule a phone call with our team when it’s convenient for you.

During the phone call, we ask you more questions about your business and you have the chance to ask more questions about our processes.

Since most of our members are passionate advocates for their businesses, we find that a phone call is the perfect format to learn more about your business.

3) Member Profile Creation and Presentation

For this next phase, our team creates your Member Profile using details from your application form, application phone call, and website. We may also perform mild research to help fill any relevant information gaps.

The Member Profile is a Google Site that is set to not be displayed on public search engines, which means only those with the link will be able to view it, including you and our team.

Once completed, we present the Member Profile to you.

4) Application Process Closure

Once you have had time to review the Member Profile, we make any requested adjustments and send the updated Member Profile to you.

At this point, our team determines if your business is a good fit for our SharedTEAMS membership. If your business is, we will offer you the opportunity to sign up for membership. If not, we will help you find an alternative avenue to better meet your marketing needs.

If you become a member, the Member Profile is referenced in every project.

At the close of this process, members typically start the projects that are most important to them.

Membership includes a 14-day risk-free money-back guarantee and access to the SharedTEAMS online office, where you can begin assigning projects, developing strategies, and working with your new marketing team.
