In the last lesson we went over a handy checklist that you can use to set
up your membership site. In this lesson we are going to talk about
choosing the right script to power your membership site.
A membership site script will help make running a membership site
very easy. Most scripts allow you to securely set up a website so that
non-members can’t access your private content.
There are many different membership site scripts available. Before you
purchase a membership script, look for answers to the following
questions on the script’s website:
– Does the membership script have a satisfaction guarantee?
Study the sales page for the membership script carefully to find a
satisfaction guarantee. When a creator of a script includes this, you can
buy the script confidently knowing that if you have trouble later you can
file a refund request. If the script doesn't function the way the creator
promised, you'll be able to get your money back. Reputable product
creators understand this and will display this clearly on their sales page.
– Does the script come with an instant use website template?
Your membership site building process will go a lot easier if your script
comes with a website template. The website template will allow you to
set up the script and the basis for your website within just a matter of
hours. You can normally edit the template with your own custom header
– Does the membership script offer automatic activation for paid
Once someone pays for their membership to your website, they'll want
to login right away. That’s why it’s so important that your membership
site script offers automatic processing for member sign ups. This way
the new members are automatically transferred to the login page,
allowed to login and automatically activated to gain access to the site.
– Does the script immediately send a welcome e-mail to new
Many scripts offer this helpful option that allows you to build rapport with
your new members immediately. A welcome e-mail will help make your
new members confident about their purchase and introduce them to the
major features of the website. This should be a standard feature on the
membership script that you purchase.
– Does the script allow for an affiliate program structure within the
A lot of membership scripts will let you easily set up a multi-tier affiliate
program within the site so you don’t have to use a third party affiliate
program. If you’re planning on implementing an affiliate commission
structure (and you should be!) this is an important feature to look for.
Using a built in affiliate commissions structure will make your affiliate
processing super simple.
– Does the memberships script integrate with popular payment
You'll save a lot of time and energy by finding a membership script that
works with Paypal or other major payment processors. If you find a
membership script that does this, you'll be able to get started all the
– Do the script creators offer ongoing support?
A membership script is totally worthless unless it is working properly.
When you make an investment in a script, make sure that you can get
the support you need so that your site can make you money. Look for
promises of ongoing support on the sales page or reviews from current
customers that prove the membership script creators follow through
with those who purchase their product.
With the wide variety of options available to you, if you have trouble
finding the answers you need on the scripts that you are considering
then is may be best to mark them off your list and move on.
