    20 ways to use your membership website to increase member retention


    As a membership organisation, finding ways to use your membership website to increase member retention is likely one of your top priorities.

    The key to making the membership business model work is recurring revenue. If your members don't maintain an active subscription, then your revenue begins to vanish. If this happens, then growing a profitable membership website business becomes almost impossible.

    One of the main appeals of your membership website is that members will get access to new content and training on a regular basis. If you stop doing this, then there is no reason for your members to remain subscribed.

    With a membership website, the subscription is just the beginning of your relationship with your members. As they continue to pay a subscription fee, you continue to provide them with new engaging content and training - there is an ongoing mutual exchange of value.

    By finding ways of retaining your members, you increase the average lifetime value (LTV) of your members. This is a critical part of a membership website business model.

    In this article, we have put together 20 ways that you can increase membership retention on your membership website.

    6 inbound marketing strategy tips every business should use


    Whether you are a startup or large corporate, every type of business needs to have some kind of marketing strategy. The question is, what kind of marketing strategy is the most effective for my business? For many businesses, conventional marketing approaches are too expensive or unwieldy to be employed effectively. This is why many sensible businesses are opting for an inbound marketing strategy.

    Inbound marketing is much more of a whole approach than a list of tactics. An inbound marketing strategy, at its core, is more about attracting prospects to your business rather than finding prospects and going in for the hard-sell.

    Whereas traditional marketing relied on techniques like email lists, cold-calling, billboard advertisements and direct mail, a modern inbound marketing strategy uses organic search traffic, opt-in email forms, and content publication to attract customers.

    Many savvy business owners and entrepreneurs agree that inbound marketing is the best approach for today's businesses, whether B2B, B2C, SaaS, tech, e-commerce, brick-and-mortar and so on.

    At Artonezero, we are an inbound marketing agency in Shoreditch, and we have worked on inbound marketing strategy with many clients. From our experience, we have put together the following six inbound marketing tips that we believe that every business should use as part of their inbound marketing strategy.

    Recruit more members with an inbound marketing strategy


    For decades membership organisation marketing teams have used traditional outbound marketing methods including direct mail, advertisements, and promotional emails to try and capture the attention of prospects and recruit more members.

    The problem for many membership organisations is that these outbound marketing tactics are easily ignored by prospects, and therefore make their success difficult to measure. With this, many membership organisations have found a more effective strategy for demonstrating their value proposition to their prospects: an inbound marketing strategy.

    Inbound marketing is a permission-based marketing strategy that encourages prospects to move through your membership recruitment funnel by attracting their attention, nurturing their interest, demonstrating value, and finally, converting them from prospects to new members of your membership association.

    Inbound marketing uses content marketing methodology to attract members to your organisation, as opposed to you disrupting them. Instead of distributing hundreds or thousands of sales messages at prospects, you share relevant, valuable content with them.

    What does GDPR mean for your mobile app?


    Due to come into effect tomorrow (25th May 2018), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to give individuals in the EU better protection over their personal data, with a particular focus on how it is handled by businesses and organisations. So, how does this relate to mobile apps and mobile application development?

    Because GDPR covers "personal data", it will have a significant impact on organisations within the EU, including both consumer-facing organisations and B2B companies. GDPR defines "personal data" as any data record that could be used to identify an individual, including names, phone numbers and addresses. This also now includes digital information, such as GPS locations, user behaviour, usernames and much more. This means that, in one way or another, all businesses are affected, and if your organisation is looking to develop a mobile app, you will be affected too.

    Another significant change under GDPR is that traditionally, "personal data" was the sole responsibility of the main data owner. However, under GDPR, any company that processes or handles the data will now be responsible for its protection; this includes third parties and cloud providers.
