If you’re just starting out, a membership site might be the furthest thing from your mind. No worries, get the basics down and come back when you’re ready. We recently built our own membership site using the BEST WordPress Membership Plugin – ever!
I must first admit – it is a bit of a learning curve. The great news is that there is awesome documentation with videos to help you along the way as you create a membership site. After looking at the documentation, if you still feel daunted, I will tell you at the end of this article how you can have your site setup by us.
The BEST WordPress Membership Plugin
This WordPress membership plugin is called MemberPress. You start with one plugin to install but there are additonal addons which come with your purchase and make life a little bit easier. Once you’ve installed the first one you are given step-by-step instructions on how to install and finish up the rest. Right in your dashboard!
From there, your next step is to look at the documentation. There are just 5 steps really to the MemberPress membership site.
- Create your product
- Create your registration page for a paid product or free sign up
- Publish your registration or free sign up form
- Create your content pages
- Set up your access rules to protect your content
Everything else is really just layout and such like where users will login, where they go after logging in, what content they can access and more.
You’ll need to set-up your basic pages such as a login page, my content page, profile page and any other pages you want your members to have access to.
Why I Love MemberPress
I could go on and on really about the many reasons I love the MemberPress WordPress membership plugin. Instead, I will focus on how excellent it is for setting up your product(s).
In your MemberPress dashboard, you are given two sample products (memberships). One for a free product and one for a paid product. You simply create a copy of the type of product you are creating. Once the copy is saved you would then change the title, description, content, etc.
Also, if you don’t have an auto responder service MemberPress has that covered too. You can set-up a follow-up sequence right in your dashboard. You write the content and set-up when you want the emails to go out.
As if that wasn’t enough, the developers of the MemberPress WordPress membership plugin have also made it so you can integrate with any payment processor. Even your buy button can be created right within your dashboard.
Everything within this WordPress membership plugin is made for automation. You can set memberships to never expire or auto-expire. You can schedule your follow-ups. It even sends each member who signs up a secure password.
As I said in the beginning, if you still feel like it’s a bit over your head, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.
If you order MemberPress through us – we’ll help you get set-up at a discount. Once we confirm your order, we’ll get started and send you a list of information we will need.
