Membership and Subscription Websites

Take your website and turn it into a business by monitising your content.

  • Manage professional organisations with thousands of members.
  • Get paid for e-learning and digital courseware.
  • Unlimited levels with flexible membership pricing.
  • Accept recurring payment for content, podcasts, video, and more.
  • Create private social communities for unique interest groups.
  • Develop robust directory or listings sites by topic or region.
  • Offer product subscriptions or members-only product discounts.
  • Reports and member dashboards.

Advantages of the membership model include:

  • Creating a membership website around a specific topic enables you to make the most of your knowledge, experiences, skills and expertise.
  • Having hundreds of members paying you a small fee every month makes for a far less volatile source of income than relying on a small number of clients.
  • You choose when you work, where you work and what you work on.

A good membership website design will:

  • Lead with a summary of the benefits of membership.
  • Funnel people to the correct type of membership.
  • List the specific membership options, followed by a call to action to go straight to the transactional process.
  • Make the pricing information very clear.
  • Display friendly and professional images.

The membership model is particularly suited to anyone who works with clients one-on-one or even in small groups, whether you’re offering e-learning, a coaching programme or a community. If that’s you and you’d like to discuss your requirements in detail, or are just after some up-front advice, email
