Focusing on acquiring new members is a key part of creating and maintaining a successful membership site. But perhaps even more important is keeping existing members happy. For starters, it’s probably easier to keep a member than find a new one. Then there’s the invaluable word-of-mouth marketing happy members contribute, not to mention the damage to your reputation unhappy members can do.
aMember, out of all the others, is perhaps one of the oldest and most popular membership site platforms out there. It stands out with being an independent membership platform that works like WordPress in terms of functionality and styling. The most popular feature is the ability to schedule content. This encourages your members to stay subscribed for longer in order to access content that has yet to be released. Other features include integrated modules that let you integrate separate modules to extend your membership site beyond the normal functionality. And the extensive affiliate program is attractive enough for enough to start promoting your products to their friends and family.

You can even integrate members-only content into existing WordPress sites!
Ever heard the saying, “If you fail to plan, then you’re planning to fail?” That saying definitely applies to running a membership site, which is why you’ll want to plan out your content creation and delivery calendar at least six to twelve months ahead of time. Fortunately, you can make the whole process a lot easier by using this content calendar checklist!
Check that the SET ACTION on all your buttons are correct.Speaking of buttons, check all your buttons to make sure the set action is correct. If you just have a sales page and want the button to take people to the next page, you choose NEXT STEP. But, if you are taking information from people (email opt-ins or contact info), the action must be set to SUBMIT FORM. Then it will automatically send them to the next step in the funnel. There are also actions to show/hide elements, take people to certain spots on a page, and the option to write in a custom link.

Membership sites are not just for products, though. Many online communities and similar kinds of projects use membership features to isolate the kinds of people that are only in it for the thrill of it. Community forums might want to utilize membership features because that would keep a set of professionals within a tightly sealed circle that would require a monthly payment to be a part of, which in turn creates a kind of atmosphere where more high-quality discussions and content sharing is encouraged.
Don’t worry about making everything perfect at the outset. As the old saying goes, done is better than perfect, and the sooner you launch your membership site, the sooner you’ll find out if it’s what your target audience wants. It’s fine to return to this step later and work on making your membership website look more professional once you've got some traction.
WishList Member is known to have broken some barriers towards creating a membership site on the fly, rather than having to spend days, even weeks, at a time to build a site that fully resembles the end goal — to sell a course, to enable users view private content, to allow users to register towards premium features and more. Create any number of subscription models, give your premium members timely updates from one membership to the next only because they have been subscribers for a set number of times, and you can easily integrate WishList Member with your existing WordPress installation, something that many have already done so.
EasyMemberPro is popular among marketing enthusiasts who like to sell marketing courses and video related course content. The basic set of features include content dripping.

It also gets the ability to secure all your download links and setup multiple membership groups and levels. Moreover, you can offer special one-time offers and integrate payment processors like ClickBank and PayPal. While the code base is locked for the public eye, there are enough features to compliment full accessibility over the way your membership site looks and feels.

The site is using aMemeber Pro. What a blast from the past for me! The very first membership software I ever used was aMember. I guess they’re still around. But, I guess when it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. In fact, all around, this site looks a little old-school. The design is quite basic. Once again, a solid reminder that offer matters more than looks.
Having known Jason personally, I can attest to the fact that he is an action taker. When he gets an idea, he doesn’t sit around and think about it for very long. He serves his market and does it well. They’ve done a great job of building up a real community around what they do. It is obviously a great market. And so, they have a 7-figure membership site that you’d likely never guess if you were judging from the public-facing site alone.

It appears that they are running the site on Paid Memberships Pro. I’m not really familiar with this platform and I wonder why they chose to go that route over some of the more established solutions. It does appear as if the code is non-obfuscated, meaning a coder could go in and customize things quite a bit. That’s a good draw if you need something very custom.
