All levels of membership include professional development; opportunities to network with colleagues; representation and protection of the practice; and connection with couples on findaJP.com. Members know that they can count on JPus to advocate for the profession and on relevant social issues. Having the assurance that we’re managing advocacy lets members focus their attention on being the perfect officiant for their loving couples. The many couple contacts that members get is an added bonus.
Promote Yourself on findaJP.com
The Basic level membership provides all of the benefits listed above. It is for those who want to belong to our professional organization and receive the value and prestige that it offers. With it comes a listing on findaJP.com, in the member’s hometown. Each listing includes unlimited space on the About Me. In addition, a customized banner image, photo and testimonial, your phone and email contact information, link/s to personal website and social media pages.
Hometown+, Neighborhood, Region, Ultimate
The higher level memberships provide all of the above, plus more connections with couples. These are ideal for officiants who want to take advantage of findaJP’s excellent SEO. This is ideal for officiants who want to focus their business on connecting with more couples. The return on investment (ROI) increases at higher level memberships. Meaning, the average cost per couple contact goes down considerably the more towns you are listed in. You can see the different membership levels here.
Each membership level increase also provides additional perks to your findaJP profile. In addition to listings in extra towns, members are afforded more photos, testimonials and they get placed higher on the town listing pages. Being featured puts your photo/profile link in the blue banner at the top of the town’s page. Soon, when we launch the new website, the blue banner will go away and your profile photo will indicate that you are featured. You’ll also be placed higher up on the listing of JPs in your town. We use an algorithm for sequencing members on each town’s listing based on membership level and hometown. With the new website, the featured status will also increase positioning.
As you consider what membership level you’d like to be, please don’t discount the value of a strong profile. We’ve learned from experience that couples on findaJP typically don’t shop around. More often, they read through member profiles until they feel a connection. Then, they write to just that one officiant.
