What do you need to start a membership site?
This is a question we hear a lot.
Many people wonder if there is a checklist of items and services that are required to set up and maintain an online community. While there may not be a specific list, there are some main items to consider.
What immediately springs to mind when you think about building and launching a site?
An Insider started a thread in the forum asking what they need to get the ball rolling.
Every membership site has a beginning.
But where exactly do you start?
This forum thread addresses the options of integrating with selected shopping carts and auto-responders. Are both of these integrations necessary for all membership sites and what other tools needs to be considered?
Each membership site handles the release of content in its own way. How are those sites processing payments for access to that content and how are they informing the members when it has been made available?
A way to accept payments from members and the ability to effectively communicate with them is usually pretty high on the priority list for a site owner. We would like to know what else is on your “To Do” list when starting a site.
Please feel free to share your own experiences or ask any questions of your own within this thread.
