Club Marketing: Reach your customer/member goals through Customer Journey Mapping (Auckland)

Most golf facilities seemingly try to market their facilities and products at a target market of primarily gender, age or location. They try this approach of marketing their products and services as this is all they tend to know about their members or local demographics.

“All this does is lump everyone into a few generic categories and it does not fully satisfy the real needs and wants of the individual.”

There has been a swing toward a better understanding of the needs and behaviours of members, which can/will also change at the different stages of a person’s life.

Market segmentation involves dividing a market into groups of people with similar needs, attitudes and / or behaviors and helping clubs work out where is their best ‘bang for buck’. We then take this segmentation and develop a Customer Journey unique to the individuals in these groups.

Outcomes:

  • Understanding the “why behind the what” we do.
  • How best to profile and identify needs of current members and clients.
  • Mapping and Creating a consistent Customer Journey which includes creation of programmes and alignment of initiatives to meet those needs ensuring they remain engaged within the club.
  • Creating a targeted approach to marketing your products and services with the resources you have available.
