Setting up a membership platform is one thing but marketing it effectively is another. If you fail to market your membership platform it won’t give you the desired set of results compromising the quality of brand value.
A marketing membership platform is crucial to advertise and promote the brand and get it to the masses out there. This could be done by applying some simple strategies to market your membership program:
Content marketing is all over digital platforms and for all the right reasons. It is the most efficient and effective way to market your membership program and here’s how:
Suppose you go to a search engine platform and enter an input “How to issue digital credentials?”. Being a digital credential platform you have a blog on the same. So when the person inputs the query on the search engine platform, the search results will display relevant content including yours, allowing gaining a potential consumer and converting them into a long-term member.
Marketing your content has a lot to do with Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). Google uses a bot called ‘crawler’ that goes through all the content relevant to the keywords input in the search result and displays it on the first page of the Search Engine Results Page (SERP). To attract traffic to your site it is essential to use appropriate keywords, google analytics and invest in a domain name and the site performance.
In the current digital world, it would be foolish to underestimate the power of social media marketing. When it comes to social media marketing it is important to set a target audience who can be turned into potential members. Social media marketing can be done free of cost that is organic and also with help of paid services that is non-organic.
Free social media marketing includes reaching out to the customers personally, hosting a live session, engaging on the social media platforms with help of posts and videos.
Paid social media marketing can be done on any social media platform including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. These social media platforms have their own set of paid services that will help reach the target audience promoting the brand and its service. These services also provide analytics that could help the organization improvise for better results and engagement.
Another effective way to market your membership program is through offers. Consumers love membership platforms that would benefit them and value their involvement. To attract them one can apply the below strategies for their membership program:
Offer a free trial for the members to make them understand the better working culture of the organization Everyone loves free offers, but apart from that discounts are also the best way to attract the member Having a favourable fee structure, organizations can also categorise their membership based on the fees for example silver, gold and platinum Have credible privacy policies that guarantee the authenticity of a membership program Initiate a referral program or portal to encourage the existing members to attract more members
By adopting the right strategy to market their membership program, organisations can increase their traffic which will contribute to a higher engagement and create a positive value for the name of the brand.
