To many WordPress blog owners it is important to build and integrate a membership system to their WordPress blogs or websites to add the sense of exclusivity. This can only be achieved to hide blog from unregistered users. Apart from the exclusivity it provides to registered users, it also holds the benefit to create a type of certain recurring income to the blog or site owner.
There are various ways to create a membership system on any blog or website, but few of them are as easy and user friendly as WP-Member for WordPress which you can install in the blink of an eye with wide-ranging features to manage your website or blog with an effective membership system.
When WordPress started, it was commonly known and used as a blogging platform. This changed very quickly into an influential content and membership management system. Progressively WordPress turned into the preferred medium used by internet marketers to organize and deal with their subscription and membership systems.
There are various plug-in systems that you can use to implement an effective subscriber or membership system. But how do you go about to hide blog from unregistered users on WordPress?
The common reasons why website owners does not hide blogs to unregistered users is because the do not have the finances to pay technical staff and the coding to accomplish this feature is too complicated to do it themselves, thus forcing them to manage their users and content manually. This is all good and well if you do not have a large blog or website and with only a small number of members to control.
However, as the website grows and subscription demands increase it becomes important to automate the process.
WP-Member is an excellent plug-in to implement in order to hide blog to unregistered users on WordPress. You will be able to create unconstrained levels for membership restricting and hide categories in WordPress for unregistered users from seeing or utilizing certain areas of your WordPress site.
Not only Free WordPress Subscriptions
Another impressive feature of the WP-Member plug-in is that you do not need to offer only free WordPress subscriptions but can charge membership fees as well. While managing your membership subscriptions WM-Member will make sure the members on your site or blog’s payment details are kept in a current state by using the Paypal IPN.
As easy as falling out of a tree!
All you need to do is after creating the post or content for your blog or site, you click on the various membership level options who you want must have access to the new material.
When unregistered users attempt to use or view the restricted content, they will receive an onscreen message that will encourage them to sign up as a member in order to view the complete set of content or blog post. This message is completely customizable so you will be able to change it to suit and adapt to your specific membership options.
With only a few clicks your content will be protected from unregistered and even non-paying visitors. All this is possible with the WP-Member with no hidden cost or coding and you are totally in control of the complete membership subscriptions of your blog or website.
Various tests have proved that there is a 500% raise in membership signups when the WP-Member plug-in is used on your WordPress website or blog.
Late in 2008 we were interviewed by Aldian Prakoso who was writing a book about monetizing a membership site easily using wordpress.
We talked about the uses of membership systems, how wp-member works, why we use membership systems as a business model, how we manage content on large numbers of blogs and how we target and drive traffic to our sites.
Here’s a quick teaser for you:
Why do you choose membership site as your business model?
The need arose from having content that needed to be distributed to separate levels of members as well as the need for a management system that would integrate user subscriptions and content management. To create a membership site, you really need good unique content so that users will signup. We designed wp-Member so that it would be almost a bare bones system giving the user the flexibility to streamline and suit almost every user management as well as content distribution needs.
Almost every large site develops a need to manage their users and have multiple membership levels, both paid and free. Another advantage to our membership system is that you can distribute seperate posts and pages to each membership level. This allows sites to have their advert banners within free members posts and pages, while paying members get to see the advert free posts and pages.
