The staff of Back Nine gives in-person presentations and webinars to decision makers within the golf industry on a regular basis. We have spent many hours conversing with General Managers, Head Pros and other golf course employees. Below are some of the main questions that the Back Nine staff is asked on a regular basis in regards to our private social networks.
Why do I need a private social network?
Social networks have an undeniable value as a communication tool and are immensely helpful in developing an online community. Unlike publically used social networks, users of Back Nine Networks do not have to worry about the privacy risks which plague open platforms. Your members will be able to enjoy all of the features of social media without the negative aspects of sharing personal information online.
Our club already has a website, why isn’t that enough?
Have you ever had a member come up to you and say “who is that? I saw them on the course.” A social network will allow your members to connect with one another, learn about each other and identify areas in which they may have common interests. Although your website may be an informative resource, it probably does not have a social aspect.
