Stories on Mobile Marketing

Art and culture institutions face a lot of challenges when it comes to staying connected with their members. The person in charge has to make the list and then drop membership renewal reminders and other important news through email or the old good mail to the members. For Museums, science centers, art galleries, historical societies, zoos, aquariums, etc., running a membership program has always been time-consuming. Particularly when many membership related tasks are done manually.

Yes, digital technology has made those tasks easier. However, the most important thing is getting the right digital technology implemented for benefit of both, you as well as your members. Why should paper and plastic membership cards go digital? People spend more time on their mobile phones than on any other device nowadays. It is nearly a few hours a day. Mobile phones allow us to stay connected, shop, or stay informed. That’s why we are always on our mobile phones and why we check them up to 200 times per day. Mobile phones have been becoming the main screen in our lives.

And why I believe a mobile wallet is the best place for membership cards? Developing a mobile app would cost you a fortune. And anyway, people spend the majority of their time on just a few apps. On their mobile phones, people have mobile wallets that count to the most popular applications. The mobile wallet is the service behind ever-increasing mobile payments. And beyond transactions, the mobile wallet allows people to use digital content from brands. Such as coupons, store cards, event tickets, boarding passes, and … also your digital membership cards.

Digital Membership Cards

Let’s say that the expiry dates of multiple members are approaching. You would have to start sending them emails and to call them so that they can get their membership card renewed as soon as possible. Or you can stay current with peoples’ habits of having all the information at their fingertips, and decide on digital membership cards that will live on your members’ mobile phones.

Dropping membership renewal reminders to the members through email or the old good mail is a bit time-taking. The digital solution is actually very cost-effective as it can help you to cut down mailing expenses and to save internal costs for printing, handling, and stuffing envelopes, and supplies. Your staff will have more time, too. The digital membership cards would definitely make the renewal easier.
