What is "membership management"?

In simple terms, "membership management" involves a series of strategies to attract, manage, and retain customer groups with the goal of increasing customer loyalty, consumption, and frequency. In the digital age, membership management is no longer limited to traditional methods but incorporates various new approaches such as social media, marketing technology, and AI artificial intelligence, creating a closer connection between customers and brands.

Four Key Elements of Membership Management

The following are the four key elements that companies must master when implementing membership management strategies:

Understanding the target customers

Analyze customer needs, habits, and preferences in order to provide them with products and services that better meet their expectations. Membership management platforms can collect and analyze customer data through market research, data analysis, and user behavior tracking, allowing companies to gain deeper insights into their target customers and helping them formulate more precise marketing strategies.

Creating attractive membership programs

Offer unique benefits, discounts, and exclusive privileges based on customer needs and preferences to attract them to become members of the brand. Design membership systems with different VIP levels, allowing customers to enjoy different benefits based on their spending and activity levels, thereby increasing their loyalty and engagement.

Optimizing user experience

Ensure that the website is user-friendly and easy to navigate, enabling customers to have a seamless browsing and shopping experience. This includes improving website loading speed, simplifying the checkout process, optimizing layout and design, and integrating communication software to provide real-time online customer support, thus enhancing problem resolution efficiency and customer satisfaction.

Active interaction and communication

Maintain regular contact with members, understand their needs and feedback, and provide personalized recommendations and event information at appropriate times. This can be achieved through channels such as email, social media, and instant messaging tools, combined with precision advertising services to enhance brand exposure.

Ready to start brand membership management? Begin with the following steps...

Step 1: Design an attractive membership program

Offer valuable incentives to encourage participation, such as exclusive merchandise or free tickets to offline events. It doesn't necessarily have to be high-cost or extremely attractive prizes. If the activities themselves are interesting and captivating, they can attract many people to join the membership program. For example, quizzes or New Year divination can be engaging membership activities that have high viral potential and can achieve the "Member get member" (MGM) effect.

Step 2: Plan fun-filled membership activities

To maintain a strong relationship with members, organize online activities periodically, such as quizzes, creative psychological tests, etc. Additionally, ensure the satisfaction of existing members by conducting simple satisfaction surveys and collecting feedback. Continuously optimize activities to make members feel the brand's attractiveness and sincerity.

Step 3: Establish a comprehensive membership database

Manage member information in a centralized manner, including basic details, consumption habits, and preferences, to provide personalized and thoughtful services to members. Continuously collect and analyze member data to understand their needs and adjust marketing activities and product services accordingly, thus improving member satisfaction.

Case Study Sharing

Case 1: Sports Team "New Taipei King" - Mission Point Collection

P.LEAGUE+ New Taipei King created an exclusive point collection activity for their royal members. The mission point collection not only allows users to complete brand-promoting actions, such as liking the Facebook page or sharing posts, but also sparks fans' desire to collect by offering limited edition merchandise paired with a roulette draw, utilizing the "scarcity" factor to drive fan engagement.

For example, New Taipei King launched various creative point collection missions such as the "Fashion King" voting event, where fans could vote for their favorite guards. The voting mechanism creates a sense of competition among fans. The "Royal Exam" is a weekly mission with questions related to the team's matches and daily life of the guards. With free weekly push notifications, it effectively generates video traffic and fan interactions.

Case 2: YouTubers "這群人 TGOP" - Creative Interactions

這群人 TGOP incorporated a chatbot into their marketing strategy by organizing online voting campaigns, seamlessly integrating the chatbot's guided conversation flow. For example, as a pre-launch teaser for their upcoming collaboration beverage, they asked fans, "When you feel TOO MUCH, would you choose 'Calm Tea' or 'Big Iced Milk'? Analyze your unique color now!" This campaign attracted a large number of fans to participate in the interactive voting and successfully aroused their curiosity with a surprise reward.

The voting campaign could be easily shared on Facebook or Instagram and could serve as a membership task. As the same campaign started appearing in social circles, it triggered the fear of missing out (FOMO) among the public. People couldn't resist joining the test and sharing the topic, naturally spreading the information about the new product on social media.

By understanding target customers, creating attractive membership programs, optimizing user experience, and actively interacting and communicating, businesses can effectively increase customer loyalty and engagement, thereby generating more sales opportunities.
