Convert Interested Visitors to Leads

Through research and strategy, we create opportunities to begin the membership conversation earlier – and more often – with the right people. You'll be able to confidently predict, report and influence new member activity.


Stay Connected

We align your message with the motivations of your audience, so you can continue the conversation until the prospect is ready to join...whether that takes weeks, months or even years.


The Deep Dive

We start by assessing your club's starting point and discovering your goals. Through research and gap analysis, we determine your needs and prioritize tactics for quick wins and long-term success.


Build the Foundation

Next, we build the foundation necessary to achieve your goals. This always includes a strategy and plan, but may also include implementing tools, training your team, and developing processes.


Execute the Program

Finally, we develop and deploy the content and implement marketing programs. We measure results and make adjustments to ensure your goals are met and new opportunities are developed.

Does Your Website Support Your Club’s Membership Goals?

Your club’s website can be so much more than a doorway for your current members to access their membership portal. In today’s digital world, your website is like a Swiss Army knife for all of your sales and marketing efforts -- from attracting the next generation of members to differentiating your club from others by sharing your story. We collaborate with clubs to create custom-built websites that are designed with your prospects in mind and easy to update. They’re also affordable and will integrate seamlessly with your existing technology platform and internal portals. Website design pricing starts at just $7500.

Tell Your Stories

By developing your club's unique stories and sharing them using modern digital strategies, we bring your club's brand to life. Shared stories build community within your club, and enable deeper connections.


Give Members a Reason to Refer Friends

We find and convey stories that help your members feel connected and make them want to share the experience with their friends. Shared stories increase members' sense of pride in their club.


Make New Members Feel Welcome

By aligning your messaging with the motivations of new members, and using technology, we enhance the new member's onboarding experience and help them become engaged in club culture quickly. Successful onboarding improves member retention.

Since 2012 Hazeltine has partnered with StoryTeller where they have helped us with our inbound marketing, website, tracking, and customer nurturing. We see ourselves as a leader in the golf industry and StoryTeller has helped our digital presence reflect that. They have taken the time to learn the ins and outs of Hazeltine to ensure their work is not only effective but also very personal to create the best possible experience for both our members and customers. I would undeniably recommend their services!
