So, let’s say you already have a coaching web site.
An online area where you are providing valuable information.
It’s going well and now you are looking to add a membership component. Should you create a brand new site? Should you set up a sub-domain and direct members to that separate area?
These are valid questions and definitely deserve some consideration.
Perhaps there are other options you haven’t really considered as well.
This forum discussion addresses some of these topics and we invite you to join the conversation.
Okay, so where does everything go?
That is a common question when deciding where the member portion of a site should be housed. A site URL can handle this in a variety of ways. For example, you could set up a sub-domain and simply add /members to the end of it. This is a common solution, but there are other choices.
A totally new URL and site could be created for members as well. But, this may be over-doing it in some situations.
An Insider made an interesting point when they stated the following in the forum thread:
“You don’t have to give up anything… just enhance”
So, you could work with what you have already set up to ensure all users have a positive experience.
The key is delivering the content to your members in an effective manner. As long as they can easily find what they are looking for, they typically won’t mind how the site is set up.
Where is your membership portion of the site?
