OCA MEMBERS ONLY SALE!

Post by aquatica » Sat Mar 31, 2012 8:26 pm

We are considering a Super Special Sale day for OCA paid members only to help support the club and drive people to actually join the club. We are considering doing a special day sale or maybe one day per month or weekly etc.
What are your thoughts and how could we verify that one is actually a paid member? Thanks

Well I would think that the Friday night of the meeting would work well. I have to drive 40 miles one way so an additional 10 miles would be fine and that would give me an excuse to visit the store on a monthly basis.
The up to date membership could be sent by e-mail from the OCA on a monthly basis of the members in good standing. You could issue cards with dates that you are paid-in-full but that would be more work for someone.

Unfortunately the OCA membership list is a private document and not available for purposes outside the club.
Membership cards are also not an option due to the expenses involved.

The best way to handle this is to advertise your "members only" sale only within the club channels so only members get the message. Then have the sale only during specified hours (maybe outside regular business hours so regular customers are less likely to be there), and then assume anyone who walks in is a member of the OCA.

RMS used to have club days which consisted of opeining the store two hours early on a Saturday and I think they took whomever walked in to be an OCA member.

You could always print a flyer and bring it to a club meeting and specify that you have to have the flyer to get the discount.

I'd be concerned about having it on a Friday due to members arriving late to the meeting as a result and disrupting the speaker.
Sorry Ken...I know it would be more convenient for you to go on Fri....I understand the long drive cause I drive to Akron for work!!
