Earn commission for your club in 2015 from RYA
RYA Joining Point scheme helping clubs, training centres and marinas earn commission for promoting RYA membership..
Following a fetching face lift in 2014 the RYA Joining Point scheme is going from strength to strength. Since it’s re-launch some eight months ago the scheme has seen a 74% increase in the number of clubs, training centres and marinas signing up as Joining Points and earning commission for every new RYA member they sign up.
“We are delighted with how well the revamped Joining Point scheme has been received over the past months”, commented RYA Membership Operations Officer, Gemma Garrett. “We’ve welcomed 120 new Joining Points to the scheme and 640 new members to the RYA. Last year’s top Joining Point earned £750 in commission for their organisation and we hope to get even more Joining Points earning more commission throughout the 2015 season!”
The scheme provides a quick and easy way for those organisations registered as RYA Joining Points to encourage their members and customers to join the RYA and experience the many great benefits of membership. As a thank you for spreading the word about RYA membership.
As a thank you for spreading the word about RYA membership, Joining Points receive a commission for each Member recommended; £10 for every Family Membership, £7.50 Personal Membership, £5.00 Under 25 Membership and £2.50 for a Youth Member, which can be fed back in to their organisation.
Paul Drake, Managing Director, Duck-2-Water commented: “Duck-2-Water became a Joining Point because as an RYA Training Centre we feel that it is important to encourage our customers to become members of the RYA.
“Having a resource such as the RYA, offering information and advice on all aspects of boating both home and abroad, is valuable to everyone. We are happy to continue to encourage all of our students to join.”
