Middletwin is the premiere platform for enthusiast groups to manage their members, events, and communications.
Enthusiast group administrators need software that can easily manage their group as a whole, provide a great member experience, and be easily transferred to new leaders.
I am the director of a local car club and we had this need, this is why I developed the platform. We have been using it for over a decade now and it has helped to manage our club and our events.
3 top competitors are Membership Works, Join It, and Wild Apricot. Their solutions solve parts of the problem, but are not a true complete all in one solution like Middletwin.
53000 enthusiast groups in US, small and medium sized business represent additional opportunity. Initial execution will focus on enthusiast groups.
Focused Google Adwords and facebook ads, email marketing, direct mail marketing to web development firms that create marketing web sites for enthusiast groups.
The Middletwin platform provides Group Administrators with a portal to manage membership, events (registration and ticket sales), communication (email, phone, video), file sharing, and merchandise sales. The platform provides members of groups with a dedicated portal to engage with other members, buy merchandise, register for events, purchase tickets, and manage their membership.
It brings together what traditionally has been accomplished using multiple systems, is documented with a knowledge base, and has a support team.
Monthly subscription revenue and add-on revenue. Average customer generates $50/month in revenue.
With no marketing, only word of mouth, over the last year we have 5 customers that are bringing in $5k in annual revenue and combined have over $20k in annual sales.
The Midwest Mopars car club has been using the platform for over a decade now and it has become an integrated and necessary part of the annual car show, in fact it allowed the show to grow from a small local show to a national show.
