“I’m building a membership site.”

Those five words can have drastically different meanings. A membership site can mean many things, including:

  • a site that lets people connect with one another

How to personalize your site’s content for members

June 24, 2015 - 5 Comments

If you’ve recently picked up a copy of WooCommerce Memberships, or are thinking about creating memberships for your online store or website, your head’s likely packed to the brim with ideas for delighting your members. Exclusive content, special deals, emails, discounts… it’s enough to make anyone excited about signing up.

The thing is, creating delight doesn’t always have to come in the form of a 15% off coupon code. In fact, it’s much easier (and perhaps more cost-effective) to accomplish this for your members. How? Through personalization.

Personalizing your content for members can lead to increased conversions, feelings of happiness and goodwill, and the reassurance that those who have signed up are exactly where they need to be. Personalized content can also help you keep your members subscribing continuously, and motivate non-members to opt in to get the highly specialized perks offered to each membership tier.

Curious about personalization? Great! We’ve got some ideas for you, so read on to learn a bit more about why personal content is so important, and to discover a few ways you can implement it for yourself.
