1 Easy & Effective Way to Deliver Value to Members on a Recurring Basis

Remember March 2020?

Firstly, your state went on lockdown.

Secondly, your business temporarily closed.

But, you, being the rock star you are, quickly rose to the occasion.

You pivoted your business from in-person classes to online and learned new video conferencing technology, all without skipping a beat.

Amid the pandemic, you kept delivering value to your members.

We don’t need to tell you about the importance of delivering value to your members. Above all, you got that down.

Here, we want to share a quick, yet effective, way to keep the martial arts member value train going. One way that leverages the virtual class offering you’ve worked so hard to build these past few months.


A Quick Win Using Something You Already Have to Increase Martial Arts Member Value


A massive silver lining coming out of the move to virtual classes is the ability to build your content library quickly. You’re already teaching classes and you have those classes recorded.

Now it’s time to share the classes to provide ongoing value to your members. In addition, you’ll get the most use out of your videos.

One of the best ways to do that is through a member portal.

Sure, you’ve likely shared your videos on YouTube and Facebook, but by building up your member portal, you’ll create a Center of Value for your members that drives member engagement and retention, and helps set you apart.


Adding Video to Your Member Portal to Increase Martial Arts Member Value


“If you build it, they will come (back).”

Most member management software provides a member portal where members can view and pay their bill,  manage their member account, reserve their spot in class, complete online waivers. 

To go beyond that, and build up your member portal with your amazing video content, start by adding a custom tab to your member portal.

In Member Manager software, it’s easy.

Firstly, log in to Member Manager, then go to:

Setup > Personalize > Custom Tabs > Add Custom Tab

From there, fill in the fields:

Name: We suggest ‘Online Training’ or ‘Virtual Training’

Type: Select ‘HTML Supported’

HTML Supported Content: Type in your description (example: All Belts Kids, Teens, & Adults Virtual Training)

After your description, drop in the embed code from YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, or whatever video-sharing platform you use.


After the Upload


Now that you’ve added your virtual class recordings to your member portal, tell your members about it!

*  Firstly, blog about it.

*  Secondly, add a banner to your website.

*  Thirdly, share it on social media.

*  Fourthly, add it to your newsletter.

*  Finally, send an email to members.

Above all, let members know that you’re continuing to add to your martial arts member value. For instance, spotlight specific, popular classes. Encourage members to check back as you add more and more videos to the portal.


Final Words About Martial Arts Member Value


In today’s environment, a quality member experience is more important than ever to strengthen member retention and help members feel they’re part of their fitness family once again.

In conclusion, use this simple, yet effective, tip to deliver value on a recurring basis, and make your member experience stand out.
