Using Discount Codes to Add Multiple Trial Plans for one Member Plan

MemberGate includes the ability to offer multiple discount codes for the trial period of a recurring member plan without the need to create multiple member plans!

Oh So Many Trial Day and Trial Price Combos!

When it comes to discount codes for trial membership plans, there are a few different approaches you can take. One option is to offer a discount that reduces the cost of the trial period. This means potential customers pay less money upfront to access the benefits of the membership for a shorter period of time. This approach can be useful for those who are price-sensitive and want to experience the membership at a reduced cost, even if it means a shorter trial duration.

Another approach is to provide a discount that extends the trial period. In this case, customers pay the regular price but receive additional days or weeks of access to the membership. This strategy can be appealing to individuals who are interested in fully exploring the benefits of the membership before committing to a long-term subscription. The extra time allows them to thoroughly evaluate whether the membership aligns with their needs.

Lastly, you can offer a discount that reduces both the cost and the duration of the trial. This option targets customers who are looking for a quick, cost-effective taste of the membership benefits without a significant commitment. It can be an attractive option for those who want to sample the offerings without a long-term obligation, and the lower price point makes it more accessible.

The choice between these approaches depends on your target audience, pricing strategy, and business objectives. Consider the perceived value of your membership, the competitive landscape, and the financial implications of each discount option. It's essential to strike a balance that provides enough incentive to attract potential customers while still maintaining profitability and sustainable growth for your business.

The Importance of Discounted Membership Trials

Offering discount codes for a membership trial can be important for several reasons:

Attracting new customers

Discount codes make your membership trial more enticing and can help attract new customers who may be hesitant to commit to the full price. It provides them with an opportunity to experience the benefits of the membership at a reduced cost, making it easier for them to give it a try.

Generating interest and increasing sign-ups

By offering discount codes, you create a sense of exclusivity and urgency, encouraging potential customers to take action and sign up for the membership trial. The perception of getting a special deal or limited-time offer can motivate people to try your service.

Overcoming price objections

Some customers may be interested in your membership but hesitant to pay the full price upfront. Discount codes help overcome price objections by reducing the barrier to entry. It allows potential customers to test your membership at a lower cost, giving them the opportunity to evaluate its value and decide whether it's worth the full price in the long run.

Building customer loyalty

When customers have a positive experience during the membership trial, they are more likely to convert into paying, long-term members. By offering discount codes, you're giving them a chance to experience the value your membership provides, potentially leading to increased customer loyalty and retention.

Encouraging referrals

Discount codes can also be used as an incentive for current members to refer their friends, colleagues, or family members to your membership trial. By providing both the referrer and the new member with a discount, you create a win-win situation that encourages word-of-mouth promotion and expands your customer base.
