WishList Insider – Forum Focus 321

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.

So I Need An Auto-Responder, A Shopping Cart, And Is That All?

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.

Communication is key for your community.

This is why it is so important to have a healthy and up-to-date email list of your members.

You have the ability to connect and interact with your members through various email campaigns and messages. They will remain informed about everything that has happened and everything that is coming soon through the direct emails you send.

But how can you be sure that the correct people are on the correct mailing lists?

That is a good question and it gets addressed in this edition of Forum Focus.

Removing Cancelled Members From AutoResponder Lists (Updated)

WishList Member allows for integration with a number of different AutoResponder options.

Members can be added to specific mailing lists tied to membership levels when they sign up. The members can remain a part of that corresponding mailing list until they cancel their membership on the site.

That is the typical desired functionality for membership sites and mailing lists.

Everything working together to create a smooth and easy process for the member while you as the site admin can stay in contact with focused mailings.

An Insider brings up some questions about how their integration is working (or not working) in this thread and some suggestions are offered.

There are a few different settings to keep in mind when configuring these types of integrations.
