But there was one site that immediately caught my eye.

So how did it stand out?

WishList Insider – Forum Focus 143

It’s that time of the week again!

This is when we focus on 3 threads from within the Insider Forum.

  • How Can I Remove Comments From The Registration Page?
  • Should I Use An Affiliate Or Contest Option?
  • Why Are My Links Not Directing Properly?

Get the answers to these questions here…


I Have Comments On My Registration Page

It’s always a good thing to see new comments popping up on your membership site!

Well, ALMOST always…

One instance when comments are likely not wanted or needed are on your registration form.

Typically, there shouldn’t be a comments section below your registration area but sometimes one will appear. Do you know why this might happen and how you can remove it?

Learn how by following the steps posted by an Insider within this conversation.

This quick fix could save you headaches down the line.


Invitation + Referrals

Have you ever considered offering prizes or incentives to your community if they can recruit new members?

If so, the real question then becomes HOW can you do this?

There are affiliate or contest options currently available (one Insider suggests a couple of plugins that could help).

Allowing members the ability to earn rewards for inviting others to join your site can be a quick way to build your community.

We encourage your to check out this forum thread to see what may fit your needs or tell us what is already working on your site.


Infusionsoft Emails Not Linking Directly To Membership Level

Here is a “Quick Hit” from the Forum 🙂

For those who use Infusionsoft with their membership site, have you ever had issues with links not directing properly?

Maybe these links direct to a dead end or send everyone to your home page.

Either way, these links aren’t sending members where they should be.

If so, this conversation in the forum may have a very fast fix for you.
