What is a membership site?

A membership site is a gated website where members pay for access to your high-value content or networking opportunities with like-minded members. Members each get a unique login to your password-protected site, while their subscription fees earn you a steady stream of recurring revenue.

Membership sites can be crafted to showcase any type of content behind the initial paywall:  instructional videos, evergreen tutorials, live webinar series, VIP treatment, insider information, niche-specific networking and more. With the right in-demand offer, each of these types of membership access can offer tremendous value to target audiences thereby making them well worth the cost of signing up and paying. All in all, it's one of the best ways to generate passive income.

Examples of membership campaigns using Ontraport

Community forum

Once your coaching business has a decent following, an online community site may be your next step. Not only does an online community give members the ability to interact with a collective of like-minded individuals, they get to correspond with you — the business owner. 

Member benefit/reward

Setting up a membership site with tiered access levels in Ontraport is easy with our membership plugin. Simply designate which content and products are accessible per membership level, and customers will only see what they’ve paid to see. 

Deliver a remarkable customer experience every time

Assuming you continually update your membership site with fresh content, products and services, users get a ton of value delivered the way they want it, when they want it. Because your product is automated and delivered digitally, the customer experience is both personalized and uniform.

The benefits of recurring revenue on a scalable product

A membership product is one-to-many and typically doesn’t require a big team to maintain. This allows you to quickly and easily publish your materials — written content, audio, video and file downloads — in a single, convenient place. Members of your site have the ability to log in and consume your content at will.

How to create a membership site using Ontraport

Take subscription payments and make sure they come through by automatically preempting expired cards and retrying card bounces.

Learning how to create a membership site is a juggling act. Not only do you need to create lots of engaging content or online courses, but you also have to handle admin tasks like managing who gets access to what, collecting membership fees, and generating login information — all so you can keep your members engaged and avoid cancellations.

Ontraport takes care of all that by setting up all these essential membership functions for you, so that you can create and launch your site quickly. Our free Membership Starter Kit comes with everything you need to create and manage a membership site. Simply edit your landing pages and emails however you’d like, customize your automation, and launch.

Or, if you want to turn your existing WordPress site into a membership platform or build a membership site from scratch, Ontraport lets you do that too!

“The best part of Ontraport for membership sites is its incredible flexibility. You can arrange what is displayed to people at different levels, and you can be super creative with it. It's also native, and the WordPress plugin works beautifully and integrates smoothly with Ontraport.
