Vogue Australia today announced the launch of Vogue VIP, a membership benefits program exclusive to subscribers.
Vogue VIP has been designed to recognise and enhance the loyalty and status of subscribers and drive brand engagement through exclusive experiences and events, special content and premium partnership offers only VogueAustralia can deliver.
Vogue Australia editor-in-chief, Edwina McCann said: “As we celebrate Vogue Australia’s 60th birthday this year we wanted to show our appreciation to our most dedicated readers.
“Vogue VIP is a personalised membership loyalty program rewarding subscribers and offering rarefied access into the world of Vogue, it’s also our biggest ever consumer facing launch.
“The members-only experience is a really exciting transformation of the business and I’m confident we will be successful because we are investing in the future of our brand, our content and importantly our customers.”
McCann continued: “The brand new Vogue VIP website is now live and allows subscribers to redeem offers and experiences they consider valuable.
“It has been designed to align with the Vogue Australia website redesign launching later this year.
“We’re thrilled to be launching the Vogue VIP program and taking our most valued readers along for the ride, and there’s a lot more to come.”
The Australian, NSW & Prestige Titles managing director, Nicholas Gray said: “Subscriptions are important to our business and improving the Vogue Australia customer experience and rewarding brand loyalists is imperative to building engagement, growing and retaining subscribers.
“We have applied many of the lessons from the successful growth of The Australian’s multi-platform subscription audience adding to the strategic vision for Vogue VIP.”
Vogue Australia marketing director, Diana Kay said: “Vogue VIP was created to deliver a direct-to-customer, personalised membership experience.
“It’s a strong value proposition for our partners and streamlines the distribution of our products to ensure a frictionless customer journey from engagement and acquisition to retention and transaction.
“As a category first loyalty program we did extensive research to tightly map our consumer needs and wants.”
She added: “Through this process it became very clear that readers value more access to the brand and that a rewards program would positively impact their consideration to subscribe.
“It also gave us our name with half of those surveyed saying they preferred Vogue VIP.”
