Membership 2021



Recommended Posts

It's hard work signing up. Ideally you want people to be able to join when they're inspired after a win and for it to be super easy, but geez it's hard work.

That you can't pay with a single payment online and have to sign up through payment installments is inexcusable.

Going some way in the club's defence, ticketek is a horrendous organisation.

the other thing you can't do online is add a reserved seat without a grandfinal guarantee tax. You can if you ring the club or if you are renewing a membership with reserved seating and no guarantee. It makes a big difference to the price. I'm sure many new users would prefer a reserved seat but not at the inflated price caused by the grandfinal guarantee.

some or all of these anomalies i think are caused by the club having to use standard afl software when booking memberships online. It's a bit of deception by obfuscation

What is the reason that the membership portal is done through Ticketek? It is beyond abysmal sign up experience.  And working myself in digital, I often wonder what the drop off rates are in that membership funnel?

Do the Demons get access to that data, or the meta data like when and from where these people are signing up to better inform our marketing activities?

For example, if it is (as I suspect) that people sign up post game - probably makes sense to do targeting e-marketing in and around that time (ie promos etc). 

Just a thought...

I've said for ages they should have membership tents outside the ground after wins. I'd particularly target outside gate 2 for those MCC members who wouldn't normally sign up but may think otherwise after the high if a win and/or some pints in the bar.

Yeah I know, I meant previous years. Electronic targeting post victory would be a great idea as the previous poster mentioned.

Also the Ticketmaster website is dog**** agree with that too. How hard is it to set up a website for people to easily purchase the items they want?

I work with the meanest man in the world.

He rang up the MCC today to buy a MCC/MFC membership.  (It is possibly the cheapest membership)

If he is joining I reckon there is easily another 20,000 out there.

I'm guessing the memberships with GF guarantee are selling like hot cakes.

 

Edit:  I just had a look at all the membership packages that include the guarantee and each one shows 'Limited Availabilty'. 

So if anyone wants one ring the club quickly!

I hate to be a dampener but as a long term GF guarantee donor ‘limited ‘ in this context does not reflect heightened demand - just that there’s a finite number available.

i’ve been using the guarantee for several years as a way of coughing up more into the coffers. Never really thought I’d need it.

Not putting a dampener on it for me.  I've paid for a GF guarantee for the last 20 years!  Always thought of it as a donation.

The 'Limited Availablity' means there isn't many of that finite number still available. The only time I saw 'Limited Availablity' was post 2018 so it means that demand fluctuates.  Bad years not in demand.  Good years lots are in demand.

My read is that this year there aren't many GF gaurantee memberships left because the demand has been high enough to use up the number we can have.

I have always thought of my membership as a donation LH but you have got me well covered paying for a GF guarantee through the Neeld years is the ultimate sacrifice ?

G'day all, just a quick question, I've changed my membership to being digital (not sure if they send out the cards anymore anyway??) but through the app when I try and access the Mobile Membership area it allows me to see last years fixture (not that's any good), but not that actual membership card. I'm only asking because I'm heading along to the Sporting Globe tonight and as members we get a discount, but they have the scan the membership card. Anyone know how to do that with these digital memberships?

There were no digital membership cards. The plan was to issue your entry bar code before each round. COVID ruined that plan.

I suggest getting the bar code number off the email the club would have sent you to gain access to tickets, through Ticketek. That might work?

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
