Proven Strategies to Propel Your Community's Success
Hey there, community builders! In the realm of online memberships, you’re selling much more than a product—You are selling your personal brand. In order to create a revenue generating community asset, achieving high conversion rates and creating a smooth onboarding process are both key components to your brand's success.
At Jedari, we get it—After decades of creating thriving communities, we know the challenges you face, and we're committed to helping you overcome them and achieve all of your community-building goals.
In this article, we'll dive deep into how to create conversion success and share valuable insights and strategies for optimizing sales and onboarding in the online membership space.
Identifying Conversion Challenges
One of our clients recently encountered challenges with low conversion rates and friction points in their online membership funnel. They expressed concerns about the email verification process and its impact on user excitement and conversion rates. Our team took this feedback seriously and aimed to provide guidance and solutions to enhance their results, and the results of everyone who utilizes our community-building platform.
Insights and Strategies
Through decades of experience in building multiple million-dollar brands, we have identified key factors that contribute to conversion success: crafting a compelling sales page with an effective value proposition, optimizing the onboarding process, and utilizing the magic of automations that run your community for you—effortlessly.
The Power of Connection
Let's get real for a moment. Unlike one-time purchase products or e-commerce, online memberships are all about forging a deep connection between you and your members. It's like the perfect dance routine, where you lead them through a journey of value and engagement. Your sales page? It's the stage where you showcase your unique value, leaving potential members dazzled and eager to join your community.
Crafting a Compelling Sales Page
Driving traffic directly to your community platform is a mistake for several reasons. In order to see true success in your community, it's crucial to create a compelling sales page that captivates your audience and convinces them of the value of joining your online membership.
By effectively communicating your value proposition and crafting an engaging narrative, you can drive conversions and establish a genuine connection with potential members.
- Clear Value Proposition: Shout it from the rooftops, my friend! Let the world know about the incredible benefits and transformations your membership offers. Show them how you'll help them achieve their wildest dreams, overcome challenges, and experience growth like never before. Paint a picture of the exciting journey they'll embark on as part of your community.
- Personal Branding: You're not just another face in the crowd. You're a master of your craft, a force to be reckoned with. Showcase your expertise, highlight your unique approach, and let your personality shine through. Sprinkle some testimonials, success stories, and social proof to build trust and captivate potential members.
- Engaging Content: Get ready to flex those creative muscles! Craft compelling content that keeps potential members hooked from start to finish. Use the power of storytelling, evoke emotions, and incorporate eye-catching visuals that leave them saying, "Wow, this is exactly what I've been looking for!"
- Transparent Pricing: Say goodbye to sneaky surprises! It's time to bring transparency to the forefront of your pricing strategy. Don't leave your potential members guessing or feeling like they're being played. Instead, lay it all out on the table and let them see the incredible value they'll be getting. Show them the long-term benefits, the exclusive access, and the amazing perks that come with being a part of your community. When it comes to pricing, honesty is the best policy, and transparency is the name of the game!
- Call-to-Action: Include a clear and prominent call-to-action that encourages potential members to take the next step. Grab their attention with compelling language that speaks directly to their desires and aspirations. Create a sense of urgency that ignites their motivation and compels them to take immediate action. Your call-to-action is like a superhero, swooping in to save the day and guide potential members towards the incredible opportunities that await them in your community. So, don't hold back—make it clear, make it compelling, and watch as your call-to-action works its magic!
Building Trust and Excitement
Imagine a sales page that radiates trust and sparks excitement in potential members. By painting a vivid picture of the value they'll receive, the unwavering support they can count on, and the extraordinary transformation that awaits them, you'll ignite their enthusiasm and inspire them to join your vibrant community. Building trust is like laying a solid foundation, while generating excitement is the fuel that propels your community to new heights. So, let your sales page be a beacon of trust, an oasis of excitement, and a gateway to a life-changing journey. Embrace the power of connection, and watch as potential members confidently invest in your community, knowing they're about to embark on an incredible adventure.
When it comes to onboarding new members, clarity is key. At Jedari, we understand the importance of streamlining the process while maintaining essential security measures. While email validation plays a crucial role in reducing errors, refund rates, and chargebacks, we also recognize the desire to minimize friction points for a seamless user experience. That's why our team is actively exploring ways to optimize the onboarding journey, striking the perfect balance between user experience and risk management.
Ensuring Clarity In The Onboarding Process
A proven method in ensuring clarity in your onboarding process is to change your registration page text to provide the following instructions:
Step 1: Create your account for our vibrant community by entering your information below.

Best Onboarding Practices for Lasting Engagement
Here are some additional onboarding best practices to ensure high engagement in your community:
- Highlight Value and Benefits: Immediately after signup, provide a warm welcome and guide new members through the unique features and benefits they can expect. Create automations for your platform using Zapier to drop them into a welcome email flow that showcases how your community will help them achieve their goals and provide ongoing support.
- Nurture the Connection: Utilize welcome emails, personalized messages, and exclusive content to nurture the connection with new members. Encourage engagement, answer questions, and make them feel valued and supported from the very beginning.
- Provide Clear Direction: When it comes to navigating your community and maximizing results, clear and concise instructions are the wind in your sails. Picture this: a captivating welcome video residing in our static pages, guiding new members on an exciting voyage through your community's features and functionalities. This invaluable resource will steer them through every step of the journey, from setting up their profile to conquering daily goals and seamlessly joining vibrant community groups.

Evaluating Conversion Numbers
Let’s face it – conversion numbers can be frustrating, and it’s common for conversion rates to vary greatly across different sales processes, funnels, and target audiences. This is why it’s important to evaluate your sales funnels to see what’s working and what isn’t, and adjust your strategy accordingly. It’s not about getting it perfect the first time – It’s much more important to just start where you are and adapt as you go.
Now, let's talk about the unsung heroes of conversion — those potential members who have created an account but haven't taken that final leap to become paying members. It's like a cliffhanger ending, leaving you eager to know what happens next. But don’t worry, we have a solution for you: retargeting.
Retargeting Potential Members
Capturing the attention of potential members is only half the battle. The real challenge lies in converting those who have created an account but haven't taken the plunge to purchase a membership. This is where the power of retargeting comes into play. By keeping a watchful eye on your users and crafting strategic email flows, you can reignite their interest and guide them towards becoming devoted members of your community.
Why is retargeting crucial, you ask? Well, here's the scoop: most folks don't whip out their wallets on their first encounter with your community. They need a little extra time to mull over the sheer awesomeness of what you're offering or, let's face it, life and distractions get in the way. But with gentle reminders and enticing glimpses of the unique benefits and transformation your membership offers, you increase the chances of converting them into loyal members.
Crafting Engaging Email Flows
The key to successful retargeting lies in crafting engaging email flows that keep potential members interested and motivated to take action. Here is our playbook for success:
- Segment Your Audience: Divide your potential members into different segments based on their interests, actions, or stage in the conversion journey. This allows you to send personalized and relevant emails that resonate with their specific needs and preferences.
- Create Compelling Content: Your emails should be like a captivating story, grabbing their attention and leaving them wanting more. Highlight the value, benefits, and exclusive features of your membership with persuasive language, storytelling techniques, and eye-catching visuals. Think about throwing in a video or two.
- Provide Social Proof: I don’t know about you, but when I have a purchase decision to make, the first thing I do is read the reviews! That’s why it’s so important to incorporate testimonials, success stories, and social proof in your emails to build trust and credibility. Let potential members see the real-life impact your community has had on others, boosting their confidence to join.
- Utilize a Call-to-Action: Every great sales email needs a great call-to-action (CTA). It's like a neon sign, guiding potential members towards the next step. Whether it's directing them to a sales page, inviting them to a live demo, or offering a limited-time discount, make it easy for them to take action.
- Follow Up Strategically: Timing is crucial when it comes to following up with potential members. Plan a series of follow-up emails that are spaced out strategically, ensuring you stay top-of-mind without overwhelming them. Each email should provide value, address common concerns, and gently nudge them towards joining.
By implementing a well-crafted retargeting strategy, you can re-engage potential members who have shown interest in your community. Through personalized and compelling email flows, you can build a connection, address their hesitations, and ultimately guide them towards becoming active and paying members.
Remember, conversion success is not just about attracting new members; it's about nurturing and converting those who have already shown interest. With retargeting, you can unlock the potential of your existing user base and turn them into loyal advocates for your community.
