Membership Sites 101: Everything You Need to Know to Start Your Own! (2022)
Membership sites. Maybe you’ve heard the term, but in any case you’ve probably used at least one of them by now. Netflix, online publications, courses, subscription boxes, all of these fall under that umbrella.
It’s pretty much any site where people have to sign up to access all, or just some, of your content. A “Paywalled” or “gated” website is another way to describe it.
Your site content can be free, cost money, or both.
The members-only content, which can be your whole site or just parts of it, is hidden behind a gate slash paywall, and only site members can get it.
A gate is just a barrier you build into your site that blocks non-members from accessing certain content. Once you’ve got the barrier in place, your site members can bypass it by logging in.
People can purchase a membership, which outlines how much they pay (if it isn’t free) and what content they get. Once they purchase or sign up, their account gives them access to content behind the gate.
When we talk about content, we can mean all kinds of things:
Subscriptions, digital products, physical products, podcasts, blog posts, eBooks, white papers, images, audio content, videos, online courses, coaching sessions, community forums, virtual conferences, and much more!
Pretty much any area of expertise or interest can be turned into a membership site. At MemberPress, we strive to help small businesses leverage the membership model to achieve their goals.
In this video, I’ll break down what a membership site is and show you how you can start your own.
