    About this course

    Do you want to create a membership website using Wordpress? Perhaps you already have a wordpress website, but now you want to create one with membership of different levels? This course shows you how to create a wordpress website using wordpress right from the very start - buying the domain, to the end membership site. 

    We cover how to set different membership levels - so you can have some members who are free and some who pay for their subscription. You can set it to have a free trial period, and membership can be weekly, monthly, annually - you decide! You can choos the currency. We cover how to link paypal, to take subscriptions, how to customise the site to add a menu and a log in and registration button and how to add social media buttons and much much more!

    You don't need to have any previous experience of using wordpress to take this course. You may even have a wordpress website already, and you just want to add a membership option to it, or you may want to create a membership website from scratch. Either way - this course can help. We show you where and how to buy a domain, how to customise the theme for your website, how to add posts and how to add pages.

    Some content can be for paying members only. Some content can be visible to all. Some content can be partially visible to all, but they need to register before gaining access to the free bits. It's completely up to you! Membership websites are becoming increasingly popular as 'gurus' find a way to monetise their knowledge by bringing their private facebook groups off, into their own membership paid-for content website. 

    The huge benefit of the wordpress membership website that we build - is that the moment a subscriber fails to pay their 'monthly' or 'annual' subscription - then access to the parts of the website that were previously available to them immediately shuts down. So, even if they subscribe for one day and then cancel - the website 'knows' and will immediately shut them out, so there's no extra vigilence needed on your part to monitor subscribers and to kick out non-paying members. It is all automated!

    The course will take approx 1.5 hours to complete. It's one of the most useful wordpress skills you can learn today. Note - the theme is free, so is the plug in. The only additional cost (if you wish to implement a membership site for yourself) will be the cost of the domain and the cost of hosting. Annually, this could be "$20" but there is no ongoing 'cost' to managing your membership website, so there are no hidden additional / extra costs!

    Your course tutor has multiple wordpress websites and has 2 membership websites which she has built herself so none of this is theoretical but a real, practical course. One of the sites in operation today is what was made on the course. Take the course and watch how a real membership website is made in less than 2 hours from start to finish!
