Voice, community, and delight

This guide is a must-read for those looking to establish a flourishing brand membership, as it delves into the three essential pillars: Voice, community, and delight. Don't miss out on the opportunity to create a lasting impact with your audience.
Voice - Empowering the community
Voice is about giving your community power and letting them influence and shape the future of your brand. It involves listening and taking their feedback to heart while resonating through a meaningful mission.
Mission-Driven Relationships: Brands with a mission that aligns with the community's values build more genuine relationships.
Engage Through Surveys: Regularly ask your community what they want to see next in your product line or services.
Sample activations: Polling members on potential new designs, inviting them to vote on upcoming features, or hosting discussions where members can request specific changes.
Collaboration: Encourage members to collaborate on projects, create content, or participate in decision-making.
Community - Building authentic connections
Community focuses on creating a genuine connection with your fans, customers, loyalists, and brand employees. It's a place to discuss and engage with the brand openly and transparently.
Foster Real Conversations: Create spaces where members can discuss all things related to the brand.
Sample activations: Active participation on Twitter or Reddit, responding to reviews, joining discussions, or hosting live Q&A sessions to show that the brand is listening.
Transparency: Regularly share updates, acknowledge feedback, and let your community know their opinions matter.
Delight - Offering exclusive experiences
Delight goes beyond typical rewards or discounts. It's about creating unique brand activations and exclusive experiences that make members feel truly valued.
Go Beyond Discounts: Offer unique experiences like AMA sessions with the founder, exclusive events, or early access to special drops.
Sample activations: Invite members to an exclusive product launch party, provide behind-the-scenes access, or offer limited-edition merchandise to loyal members.
Make Them Feel Special: Provide access to content and experiences that make your members feel part of an exclusive club.
Building a brand membership that resonates requires a deep understanding of what your community wants and needs. By giving them a Voice, nurturing a Community, and creating moments of Delight, you meet and exceed their expectations, building a loyal and engaged community.
