Increase Your Membership Site’s Renewal Rates with Wishlist Membership Notifications Plugin
November 9, 2014 0 Comments
Wishlist Membership Notifications allows you to send notifications to members who’s membership is about to expire or to members who’s membership has already expired and convince them to renew their membership.
Sending these members notification and letting them know their membership is expiring will help prevent abandonment, increase your retention rates and revenues.
Is Wishlist Membership Notification Plugin Relevant for You?
If you own a membership site with membership level/s with an expiration date then Wishlist Membership Notifications plugin is definitely for you.
No, wait! Let me rephrase that…
This plugin is a MUST-HAVE in order for you to be able to manage a viable profitable business.
Watch the Short Demo Video of Wishlist Membership Notifications:
You can use the email notifications to alert members that their membership is about to / has expired and:
1. Give them an option to renew their existing membership
2. Upgrade to a higher membership level
3. Send expiring members special incentives such as special discount coupons
4. Offer them other products / plans (for example, if you created an online course, you can send notifications to members who are about to finish the course with offers about complementary products)
Doesn’t the Wishlist Member plugin itself allow sending notifications to expiring members?
Though Wishlist Member plugin allows sending this kind of a notification, it has many limitations, which is why we developed Wishlist Membership Notifications plugin in the first place.
