Creating a Membership Site

Are you thinking about creating a membership site? I was too.

This was a journey that took a lot of study and discovery.

I want to share my journey with you.

Why Are You Creating A Membership Course?

The first thing you want to think about is why you are considering a membership site.

For me, it was simple. I wanted to…

  • Be able to help more than one person at a time.
  • Offer more personal help at a lower price than my 1-on-1 consulting.
  • Create a community of people all working towards the same goal that could help each other.

Your reasons are going to be different.

Maybe it is better for you to create an online course.

This video will go over some questions you should be asking yourself before you decide.

Where Are You Creating Your Membership?

Once I made the choice to create a membership site, I needed to find the best platform for the style of membership that I wanted to build.

Depending on the type of membership you want to build and the features you are looking for, you are going to need to choose your membership site platform.

This video will walk you through some different choices and help guide you to the membership platform that is right for you.

What Goes In Your Membership Site?

Once you have decided the best membership site platform for you, you will need to decide what goes in it.

There are a variety of things you can put in there depending on the type of membership and your industry.

I found that sitting down with a bunch of post-its and a white board helped me get my structue in order.

I usually build out all my projects in Trello, but this one was just too big with too many moving parts.

To get an idea of everything that you can include in a membership site, I created this video with several examples.

My membership site is now launched, and I am very happy with where it is now.

The fun thing about a membership site is it can be evolving and changing as it grows.

What it starts out as is not where it will be a year from now.

The community can help you to move your membership in a direction that helps you help them best.

Circle Membership Platform Tutorial

The platform I decided to use for my membership platform is Circle.

Circle has a nice clean look and is community focused.

That was something important to me.

If you are interested in using Circle yourself, here is a walk through tutorial I made.

Good luck creating your membership site.

I hope you learned something from my journey.
