What is the best way to monetize your website or blog?
For many successful online business owners the answer is having a Membership Site. They earn a lot more with their membership fees than with banner advertising and other marketing endeavors.
A Membership Site is of course a website that requires a login to access premium content. The premium content can be high value information which you as an expert in your niche can give access to only your paying most engaged audience. And guess what when people pay for something rather than get it for free, it becomes automatically more important to them. That's strange but it's true.
Almost anybody who has some expertise in an area, interesting experiences, passions about particular things, personality that captivates people, or simply the ability to provide content that can attract an audience can benefit greatly from a Membership Site.
With a Membership Site you can:
- Give access to Premium Blog Posts
- Sell Courses
- Run live trainings or webinars
- Build a Community using a Forum or Group app
- Conduct Member Question and Answer
- Provide Media Downloads such as Guides, Templates, Infographics, Cheatsheets, etc.
- Give access to Podcasts, Interviews, Member News and lots more
So what is the best Membership Plugin for WordPress? Well after some reasearch of very successful Online Businesses, I conclude that MemberPress is the answer. This tutorial shows you how easy it is to install it.
MemberPress is great because not only does it have a lot of powerful features to turn your WordPress website into a Membership Site, but it is also very easy and intuitive to use. It integrates well with other software like Email Automation and Online Course Making.
When partnered with Paypal and Stripe, you can charge a monthly fee, a one time fee, or even offer a free trial that converts automatically to a recurring payment schedule.
If you are interested in creating your own Membership Site, stick around because I'll be showing people how to start an Online Business using the best and most affordable tools available in 2019.
Ok, well to install it you will have to first buy it. MemberPress has given me an affiliate link which may save you up to 50% off its regular prices. And to see if the discount still applies click on the following button and check the Pricing page.
They have a 14 day Money Back Guarantee, so you don't have to worry about anything.
Because I intend to launch multiple membership sites in my various domains, I bought the Plus since it allows for 5 different Sites, while Basic only allows for 1 Site activation.
Now that you bought MemberPress (I'm assuming you bought it because that's the only way to install it) lets go ahead with the easy step by step installation.
Unlike most plugins which you can find and install using the WordPress dashboard, you will need to log into your MemberPress account
Then scroll down to the bottom of you Account page, and there you will see your license information, activations, and links to download the MemberPress plugin. Click on the version under Current Stable.
Select a easy to find directory on your computer to save the file. No need to unzip the file.
After downloading it, now lets go back to your WordPress dashboard > Plugins > Add New.
Click on the Upload Plugin button.
Click Choose File, locate the file you just downloaded, and then press Install Now.
WordPress will quickly unpack the file and install the plugin.
Almost done! Let's click Plugins > Activate.
This will bring up the page where you Enter Your MemberPress License Key. Simply copy the license from your MemberPress Account page, paste here, and click Activate License Key on (website).
Viola! It's installed and ready to be setup. You can soon operate your Info Empire from within your new membership site!
Oh and lastly, when there's a new version of the plugin, you won't need to do manual downloads, you will be able to just click an Update link on the WordPress dashboard to install the new version.
