We’re very familiar with the operation of a membership site and how important it is to have it running like clockwork, as we run one ourselves.
There are many different ways to build a membership site and there are a variety of membership plugins available, all with different costs and capabilities.
Paid Membership Pro
The last membership site we built for a client used Paid Membership Pro.
The reason we chose this one was because the client wanted to keep the cost of premium plugins to a minimum.
Paid Membership Pro has a large collection of addons, which make the resultant membership site fully featured.
A few examples include are drip-fed content, Aweber Integration, and a Membership Manager dashboard.
This is another popular option. WishList member is probably one of the most widely used membership plugins for WordPress. This plugin supports most commonly used membership models:
- The Publisher Model
- The UPS Delivery Model
- The Modular Course
- The Download Area
- The Project Management Area
We’ve done a lot of work with iMember360 as this is the plugin we recommend if you’re an Infusionsoft user.
It works seamlessly with Infusionsoft to give you a direct integration with your email and customer management systems.
It has hundreds of shortcodes which make it easy to personalize the membership experience. Examples include 1-click upsells and downsells, one time offers then all serve to increase and preserve your membership revenue.
