Following on from last week’s blog The Beauty of a Membership Club I’ve had a number of questions asking what membership club tools I use to manage mine.
So I thought it would be a good idea this week to share some of my favourite membership club tools for setting up and running a Membership site, and creating the content to go in it.
I searched long and hard to find the right software to turn my WordPress website into a properly working Membership site.
I wanted something that would automatically handle all of the new Member registration process; take care of protecting the content and drip feeding it over a period of time; and of course, play nicely with PayPal to collect the monthly subscription payments.
But, I didn’t want to pay £100’s up front for it, or be tied into hefty monthly fees.
This plugin met all of my criteria – and more.

This is a great and FREE tool for recording great quality audios for your members that they can listen to whenever is good for them.
You can add in a music background too, which is perfect if you want to provide mediations as part of your membership content. You can get it Here
My favourite format for creating Membership content is video. And “screen capture” videos are made super easy with this tool.
You just bring up on your computer screen whatever you want as the visual for your video, maybe a Powerpoint presentation, fire up SOM and talk over it. SOM records your screen and your voice together to create your video.
And at less than $20 per year, it definitely won’t break the bank! Get it Here
Giving your members the option to actually talk to you, ie real life in person, not via a chat box facility, is a fab way to add value and keep them engaged in your Club.
InstantTeleseminar allows you to create group calls where your members can dial in via Skype or on a Web Call for free, while at the same time keeping the call private with PIN protection
You can also record the calls to make them available to those who couldn’t make the live call Learn More about it Here
5. Facebook Group
A good Membership Club needs to have an element of community. Somewhere where your members can connect and share with each other, as well as you.
A private Facebook Group (or LinkedIn if that suits your market better) is the perfect way to provide that for them. Just be sure to make it private so that only your members can see what’s happening inside it.
There you have them, my top 5 Membership Club tools I use to build and manage my own Club.
Between them, you have all you need to turn your WordPress website into a fully functional membership site, quickly and easily create some fab content, and you have the means to connect with your members and build your community.
Nice and Easy really!!
