This is a common and valid point to consider.
In fact, the eventual decision will play a major role in deciding on the specific site set up and content creation.
A site owner is building a site and deciding between two methods of content delivery
Should content be delivered as a course? Or, should that content be delivered as a monthly membership?
Is one method really better than the other?
That all being said, it may not need to be a choice of either/or.
Could it possibly be both?
This forum thread begins with an Insider asking about the possibility of offering a monthly membership option.
That is not an uncommon method to deliver content.
In fact, it is a tried and tested way to effectively provide protected content to eligible members.
The questions arise because the monthly membership might be instead of some existing courses. So, courses could be offered or a monthly membership could be offered.
What is the right choice?
Is, there a “right choice”?
