Members interacting with each other is part of the appeal for a number of membership sites.

In a lot of cases, these are like minded individuals coming together to discuss common topics and helping each other find solutions to shared issues.

These types of in depth discussions usually take place in the comments section of a particular post or within the forum of the online community.

But are there other ways for members to communicate?

It can happen sometimes.

A situation may arise when you want to “uncancel” access for a particular member. This can occur in cases where a member’s payment fails and their access is subsequently stopped. But you may find that you still want to provide that member with access for one reason or another.

Membership site owners are some of the most creative people we have ever met.

We see lots of different types of membership sites during our daily online travels. The WishList Member Support Department sees examples of all the ways online communities can be set up.

A journey can be much easier when the tracking of progress is possible.

Knowing the mid point and the finish line is effective motivation when taking those first few steps.

This same manner of thinking also applies to online courses or any type of content consumption. It can be encouraging just to know when you’ve hit that halfway mark. This provides a sense of accomplishment and the motivation needed to continue forward.

The protection of content is typically very high on the priority list.

A lot of time and effort goes into the creation of content and the intent is that only members should be able to access it.

This is usually the mindset of a membership site owner.
