For a membership business, member retention is crucial to growing your community. To remain profitable, you want subscription fees to be paid promptly. Automated membership subscription reminders help members check their subscriptions and renew them automatically.
In this article we will talk about why membership subscription reminders are important and how to automate them.
Why membership subscription reminders are necessary
Membership subscriptions help keep your community profitable. Therefore, you want members to remember their subscriptions and pay their fees. However, there’s a high chance that a member might forget when their subscription is about to expire and needs to be renewed. This is why you need to send regular reminders to your members.
When you send reminders, your members can plan and budget towards paying their fees. No one likes forgetting about a bill. This is why reminders are helpful.
You can remind your members to renew their subscriptions via different channels. Common channels include in-app notifications or emails. Emails are the most common and effective way to send subscription reminders.

How automation helps increase membership renewals
If you have a lot of members, sending membership reminders manually can become stressful. Chances are, members would subscribe on different days, so you’ll have to send a reminder to them at different times within the same month.
This is where automation comes in.
You can automate your membership renewal letters to be sent out some days before a member’s subscription expires. This allows you to focus on other things. You can even go a step further and automate membership renewals. Thus, your members get automatically charged on their credit cards and they don’t forget to renew their subscriptions.
