Technology is a powerful storytelling vessel, and museums large and small are jumping aboard the tech-wave to communicate their stories and educational content. But, there is a common misconception that innovative digital solutions are exclusively reserved for the big and mighty – that is, organizations willing and able to invest tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars into the development and implementation of, say, a new app, or digital experience. We’re here to debunk this myth. Here, we’ll highlight just how museums with tight budgets and small staffs have worked with Cuseum to develop sustainable, creative, digital solutions to drive visitor engagement as well as cut costs, save time with their membership programs.
So, you’ve taken the plunge, ditched the clunky audio guide or printed handout, and gone digital – now your members can tour your museum with an easy-to-use Cuseum-powered app. But now you’re wondering, “what more can we do with it?” We’ve got the answers. Here are 5 ways you can get creative with your app to drive visitor engagement and enhance the museum-going experience.
Back in 2017, Cuseum introduced digital membership cards to help organizations and their membership departments succeed in the digital age. They’re more affordable, more convenient, and more accessible than traditional membership cards — what’s not to love? Since then, we’ve worked with organizations with 100s of members to 100,000+ members to develop optimal digital membership solutions for them and their constituents.
Zoos and aquariums attract 181 million visitors annually, and members make up a large portion of those visitors. At the same time, physical membership cards continue to be a huge source of paper and plastic waste. As membership remains a key source of revenue for zoos, it’s important that it stays an attractive option to the environmentally-conscious demographic of zoo visitors. By helping you roll out a digital membership program, Cuseum can assure that you will continue to attract new members, as well as hold onto your current ones.
