WordPress Meetup - Membership Sites

Note that this month we are meeting on Tuesday instead of Thursday!

This month, Avital Eidenbom will speak about WordPress membership sites.  Membership sites are a great way to make money from your website.  Avital will discuss who should make membership sites and why, how membership sites make money, and the plugins and tools available to create membership sites.

Avital is a social media specialist whose main passion is empowering people to understand and use social media tools on their own.   Her membership site is here: http://organichybridsocialmedia.com/

    The speaker was great. For those who wanted to talk about each other's membership sites, I think there was a lack of people who have membership sites in attendance. I think there is room to have a crowd discussion about this. I do think it is important to have a facilitator or moderator. I am happy to help.

      Happy to attend, as I have done a few and now have my current one running. A day event would work best for me :)

    Hey all, I attended the membership sites meeting.
    Avital did a great job sharing resources and items to consider for making a successful membership site. She has saved me lots of time by her advice. By the way, one of the resources, I am thrilled about is Easy Video Suite. I just bought Vimeo, but this sounds much better. Here is a link http://avital90.webactix.hop.clickbank.net
    I am definitely going to buy it. http://avidadmin.com/

    Anyone know Parallels Plesk?

    April 28, 2014

    • Marty D.

      If Eric Amundson hasn't responded to you about Parallels Plesk - I'd contact him - [masked]

    • Eric A.

      Hi Jason, I know a bit about Plesk. Did you have a question I can help with?

      Also, we have some folks from the Plesk team at Parallels that live in the area that have attended our Meetup, so we have good contacts. :)

      In fact, I believe they're a sponsor of this year's WordCamp.

    I must admit, I made the trip from Kitsap County in hopes of hearing (a) what people had accomplished with membership sites as a group and (b) popcorn or a thorough review of various tools people are using.

      Hey Paul, not to hijack, but in the past I used s2 member pro and wishlist, this was a few years back, but both needed to work out the bugs and s2 hopefully got a better UI since then :)

      This time around I used WooCommerce and a couple of extensions. Just an fyi...

      Hey Paul and Eric. I did a little more research with optimize press. Optimize Press 1.0 is a THEME. However, Optimize Press came out with a newer version, Optimize Press 2.0 , which works as a Theme or plugin (according to their site.) They do claim it works as a membership portal that integrates with other membership tools such as wishlist. Here is a link to there site to review their information: http://www.optimizepr...­ Optimize Press is great for landing pages and sales pages too, which I know people love using Optimize Press for this purpose, but can also serve as a membership site. Hope this helps.

    Why didn't you send out an email announcing this? Or did you, and I for some reason not receive it? I have a reoccurring event on my calendar for Thursday meetups but did not know that this week it was going to - and did - happen on Tuesday. I am SO BUMMED that I missed it since I am just about to set up a membership site. PLEASE SEND OUT AN ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT YOUR MEETUPS!!

    May 7, 2014

    • Bob D.

      Just an FYI, I got all the announcements via email :)

      May 7, 2014

    • Viv Ilo V.

      I bet it is my mail program! Just today it started stripping out all attachments when I send them. This confirms that I must not be getting some emails as well. I checked and my settings are correct. And it did not go into junk mail. Dang! Avital, thank you for the link.

    I hope it gets recorded. I also have another obligation.

  • Larry

    Shoot! I've got another obligation then. I'm very interested in this topic. Any chance this will be recorded and archived anywhere?

    Exactly what I need to learn amount. Maybe we can sneak in conversation about video hosting within membership sites too. =)

    This is a great opportunity for me to discover advantages of membership sites. See you there.

  • Sheila H.

    I'm excited for a chance to see everyone. I can't do Thursdays anymore so this Tuesday date is GREAT for me. Looking forward to it. I've only done one membership site. I have a possible one in the wings.

  • Bob D.

    Not sure I can make it, but sounds great, I just did a presentation on this at the Portland meetup :)
