What's involved?

We know that Kiwi organisations and marketing roles come in every size (and job description!).

So that's why we've structured our membership subscriptions in a flexible way...

  • Whether you're a team of 'one' or a multinational, in a city centre or rural, you'll find a membership option to suit your needs.
  • Likewise, the pricing of our subscription fee is also tailored to your needs. When you apply for your membership your subscription fee will be calculated based on the information you share with us.
  • Applying takes only a few minutes and, depending on your membership type, you may be able to purchase online immediately!
  • Your subscription will give you access to all our member benefits for one year. You'll be sent an invitation to renew on the anniversary of your first purchase.
  • If you're an organisation, corporate or NFP, you'll be able to manage your team memberships, all from your member dashboard.

An individual membership is issued and invoiced to the person. This is a membership specifically for marketing consultants or individuals wanting access to member discounts for professional development for themselves. A company membership gives all named staff members access to the benefits and discounts and can be transferred if a team member leaves the organisation. 
A company membership gives many more benefits in relation to access to our Advice Line services and the ability to promote their business through sharing relevant topics of interest content through our Blog and Social channels. Members are welcome to submit this content to our Marketing Manager for review. 

MA Online Membership is an individual membership giving access to all our online products and services. This is an exclusive membership for people living outside of New Zealand’s three largest cities.
