RMUG is a two-day learning experience that blends the latest and greatest in digital marketing best practices with Real Magnet platform training, customer case studies and knowledge sharing, making it the ideal venue to announce the winners of the Magnet Awards. The awards presentation is a great learning experience for Real Magnet users who get to see the techniques and strategies that award winners are implementing to excel in their marketing endeavors.

The RMUG 2017 Magnet Awards categories and winners are:

Adage Technologies, Partner of the Year

This year, Adage Technologies has helped Real Magnet expand their reach and market presence. Based in Chicago and serving many associations, Adage was a natural fit to help expand Real Magnet’s brand awareness in the Midwest while exposing Real Magnet to new potential users in sectors like the Performing Arts.


YMCA Twin Cities, Most Innovative Marketers

Using statistical analysis, YMCA Twin Cities realized that members were most likely to renew if they came into the club at least 11 times in their first 18 days of membership. Armed with this data, YMCA Twin cities implemented a 20-message welcome campaign to inform new members of all their membership offerings and benefits.
