WordPress Membership Site

Posted on January 17, 2014 by Blog Design Journal

If you don’t own a membership site you are more than likely missing out on a very profitable income stream. It’s no accident that most Internet marketers have a membership site or more than one.

The great thing about a membership site is that if you sell a product you can offer a month free to your membership site as bonus therefore making your products more easy to sell and creating multiple streams of income from one customer.

Also people love to learn so if you have great content and you want to spread out in the form of an online course what better way than a membership site. Your course material i.e. module one is delivered on the day that they sign up and use sequential modules will all be available to them month after month.

The best thing about a membership site is that once it’s in place and all the content or modules are in place and ready to be delivered you can leave it to start on your next project knowing that one site can generate a sizeable income for years to come.

WordPress the new Standard

WordPress with its easy-to-use plug-in architecture is fast becoming a standard on the web today, making it extremely easy for you to have a fully working website up and ready in a matter of hours.

For many WordPress is just a blog, but it can be so much more with new plug-ins appearing every day!

The plug-in I’m talking about today will turn your WordPress blog into a fully functional membership site which will be fully incorporated into your autoresponder and shopping cart.

The best part is, it’s easy to use. Just unzip, upload and within minutes you can have your own membership site up and running.

Types of Membership Site

When you hear “Membership Sites” it’s likely you think about a site publishing ongoing content.

Am I right?

But what if I told you that there are many “types” of membership sites.

Take a look…

1) Ongoing Content – This is your traditional membership site. Essentially you provide fresh content on a regular basis and people pay monthly to access that content whenever they want.

2) Protected Download Area – If you sell any type of digital product, you’ll want to protect it behind a membership.

Why?

Because that way you can prevent people from passing your info to others who haven’t paid for it AND you can block their access should they ask for a refund.

3) UPS Method – This type of membership is used when you deliver a “package” of content to your members each month.

They belong to your membership so they can receive this “package” every month.

A good example would be a Private Label Rights membership. With those memberships they deliver a package of PLR content each month.

4) Course Materials – If you sell any type of course that has “Modules”, then you should consider putting it into a membership site.

When you select the right membership software, you can automatically deliver each module at a predefined time so that everything is automated.

That way you can create the course once, but after that people can continue to sign up and receive the course one module at a time.

5) Micro Continuity – This membership wamade popular by Russell Brunson and essentially it involves delivering content for a fixed period of time.

It’s similar to running a “modular course” where you automatically deliver content but over a fixed period of time (3-6 months).

6) Project Management System – Running a virtual business often means you are working with vendors around the world.

With the right membership solution you can quickly create a “private membership” for YOUR company.

Just setup a membership level for each “position” in your company and then create a section of your site just for people who belong to that position (webmaster, designer, customer support etc.).
