Focusing on acquiring new members is a key part of creating and maintaining a successful membership site. But perhaps even more important is keeping existing members happy. For starters, it’s probably easier to keep a member than find a new one. Then there’s the invaluable word-of-mouth marketing happy members contribute, not to mention the damage to your reputation unhappy members can do.
Asking members to login to the member site allows you to tailor the user experience to each member. With user-specific access you have the ability to remember what content they’ve subscribed to, what content they’ve accessed, and possibly what content they’ve favorited or completed. You can also provide quizzes and lessons to truly personalize the experience. This controlled membership area provides a very customized experience that enhances the user’s interaction with the website and builds engagement.
