What is a membership site?
Essentially a membership site is a secured part of a website where users can only access content you provide via a password protected area. One of the reasons to create a membership site is due to its potential in obtaining recurring income. However, that’s not all as membership sites are also great to build an online community, create and build loyalty, maintain relationships, build a list, send newsletters, promotional campaigns, etc. With a membership site you can provide access to exclusive content, such as eBooks, training material, premium tutorials, articles, or you can also have a download area for games, themes and skins (if you are developer), software, and much more.
One of the problems with setting up a manageable membership site is that the available solutions can be complicated for a non tech savvy person and the cost associated with it could be somewhat on the high end. Not to mention that some solutions are available in modules and if you want to upgrade, you will have to pay an extra. The ideal solution would be to have, a powerful yet easy to use membership site software that delivers, is flexible, fully featured and inexpensive. Does that even exist?
Enter Magic Members Plugin. As the name suggest, it is a WordPress membership site plugin whereby anyone who knows how to install a plugin can easily set it up. A WordPress membership plugin that “turns”, any new or existing WordPress site, in to a fully automated membership site following simple and easy to understand instructions. If you ever considered setting up and run your own membership site, this is definitely a good solution, considering the features and support if offers.
Just for you to have an idea of how easy it is, once you have downloaded the plugin, you install it just like you would any other plugin. Upload, install and activate. Once you’ve activated the plugin you will see the admin panel that controls everything you want. You set up the membership levels, payment options, content control, create coupons, etc.… For example, in the admin panel, you can go to the content control option, select download, upload anything you want, select level of access, and you’re done. Easy set up:
