Create Profitable Membership Sites With OptimizeMember Quickly and Hassle Free
Last Update: March 2016
OptimizeMember is a fully functioning membership system .Giving you powerful features you need to run a membership site.
The Problem is that there are a lot of options, lots of gotchas and little training. In fact until you have created and launched a membership site you won't know what you've done wrong.
TAKE THE COURSE TODAY
For example most people don't change the default welcome email at all. As a result it mainly gets sent to customer's Junk/Spam Mail Folder. If it does arrive the instructions just lead to confuse your new member, generating support emails and headaches for you.
Create It Right First Time...
The OP2 Member Master Course takes you step by step through creating a site the right way. Watch over the shoulder as a real life product site is created. Follow along step by step.
"I was worried it would not be detailed enough for a beginner…. This was a life saver! I had already purchased OP2 and was trying to learn how to use the Membership feature. Unfortunately, OP2 Membership does not come with detailed instructions and since I am a beginner, was very confused by the whole process and worried I had wasted my money on OP2. I was left to find my own resources for learning which was very time consuming. All changed when I found OP2 Member Master. What a life saver." - Julie Siomacco
"Ease of understanding, clear step by step instruction and completeness (all aspects of a membership site). I would recommend the OP2 Member Master because the training is complete and removes the need for trial and error." - Anthony Smith
P.S. Don't forget that using the OptimizeMember Missing Manual Course you will be taken by the hand step by step through creating your own membership site with OptimizeMember from start to finish. Giving you a product to sell that you are proud of. You can do it the easy way or keep struggling by passing up this course.
- Anyone using OptimizePress and OptimizeMember to Create a membership site or client area on their website
- Not for anyone who is an expert in OptimizeMember who can speed through creating membership sites without hitting all the common pitfalls
Before you make a start you need to plan how you are going to structure your site and make sure you have everything ready to go like a logo and paypal account.
One thing that isn't mentioned is planning to Drip Feed (releasing pages over time) . If you want to do this you need to consider two limitations of OptimizeMember – Drip Feed is for pages only and the time starts from your first registration date for any product. So if you have more than one product drip feeding will not work for the second product.
If you only have one product then you will need to split content into pages based on the date they will become available.
How the organisation of pages, membership levels and products works including a discussion of the Free Level.
More adjustments to the template including introducing some navigation in the form of a breadcrumb.
Important discussion of duplicating pages via cloning or using presets.
You should find below OP2 downloadable templates that you can upload and re-use. You will have to set up the logo,products and menus but it may be an alternative to doing it all yourself. Please do not ask for support on the templates.
One of the issues I had with OptimizeMember sites is that the welcome email ends up in the spam folder. It contains a lot of !!!!'s and isn't that useful.
Additionally the email asks you to register but you may already have done so. Again confusing and adds to support workload.
This video shows the changes made for you to adapt.
NEW UPDATE: There is an additional section on changing the email that members receive when they register which details their username and password. You will need to change this to use the alternative login page we have set up.
This is an overview walkthrough of the process of using Amazon S3 to host your protected downloads.
Amazon S3 is not for the faint hearted and OptimizePress/Optimize Member don't make it any easier.
This video should give you an idea of how it works in practice. There are more detailed tutorials on the OptimizePress training site.
I recommend using onsite downloads for Files and Vimeo or EVS for video and avoiding S3
