Building communities with digital marketing

Building a loyal community through digital tools makes it possible to create true brand ambassadors of the cultural institution

Building a loyal community is an important activity for any cultural institution that wishes to highlight its mission, increase its recognition and expand the reach of its actions. An active and settled community can help a cultural institution achieve its goals by providing a way to connect directly with the public and to share information, ideas and feedback.

A network of people who are involved, interested, and motivated to participate in the institution’s activities can help create a sense of belonging among community members, encourage greater involvement, and create“brand ambassadors” who can promote the cultural institution to a wider audience.

An organization should adopt a multichannel approach to reach out to its community and build lasting relationships with members. Digital marketing tools, such as social media, e-mail, blogs, websites and apps, can be used to create interesting and engaging content. In addition, it is important to encourage a two-way dialogue between community members and the cultural institution, so as to provide them with a way to express their opinions, ask questions and share their experiences.

The app of the individual museum, theatre, festival or bookstore, when it is not just a showcase of information, is one of the marketing tools that can grow a community around it through original and interactive interactions. Indeed, sending notifications to the community, allowing it to purchase tickets, and having members that chat become features that increase the sense of belonging to the group and the authority of those running it.

It is important to design loyalty programs that reward community members for their engagement and involvement, such as discounts on events, participation in exclusive events, and private contests. These programs can help strengthen the bond between community members and the cultural institution, encouraging greater participation and involvement.

A sense of belonging to an institution’s community represents a deep connection to the culture, a belonging that goes far beyond mere interest. It is a unique experience that can help people feel part of a world full of rich stories, rich traditions, an experience that can help people build new social connections and support initiatives that support the arts and live performance.
