Member retention is five to seven times more cost-effective than member acquisition.

In light of the remarkable membership growth of 2021, it's essential to highlight the significance of member retention strategies for the year ahead. Research by Harvard underscores the potential for substantial profit increases, ranging from 25% to 95%, with just a five percent boost in retention rate. These strategies not only foster brand awareness and reputation through word-of-mouth endorsements from devoted members but also offer opportunities to cultivate constructive relationships, gather valuable feedback, and address flaws based on members' needs. Loyal members, as studies indicate, are six times more inclined to explore new programs, services, and products. Furthermore, fostering member loyalty reduces the occurrence of discontented members, creating a more harmonious atmosphere. To harness the momentum from 2021 and capitalize on the recent surge of interest among new members, consider collaborating with Private Club Marketing. We can help streamline your marketing and member communication efforts, allowing you to focus on referrals and, most importantly, member retention.
