If you have been in the market for or have recently purchased access to a new program, it’s likely that you were given access to a membership site. Membership sites have become more and more common in our digital age of online training.
Although they are more common, they can still be a little intimidating when it comes to setting one up for yourself. There is the content, graphics, videos and all of the bells and whistles that you have to think about. It can cause anxiety long before you’ve even purchased your domain name.
If you’ve been mulling over the idea, but still don’t know where to start, I’ve listed out a few options for you when it comes to setting up your own membership site.
This one is the most obvious. If you’re a coach, then you will have a membership site, no doubt.
The question lies in what are the features that you want to offer to your customers. How many modules would you like to create? Will you feature videos or just text? The possibilities are endless! I personally love video training. Give me a guidebook and a video and I’m happy as a clam.
Do you have a large team that you manage? Setting up a designated member’s area for your team will allow you to streamline your training. Have you ever attempted to onboard a team member and had something go wrong? Perhaps a step was missed and you were certain that you told them how to do “x, y and z”, only to wake up at 2:00am in a sweat because you really did forget? It’s happened to the best of us! Creating a member’s area where you keep all of your training modules, while continually adding value to your team members will be a valuable asset. Everyone will be on the same page and your clients will see a seamless transition each time you add a new team member.
Perhaps you aren’t ready to dive into the members area pool with both feet. That’s okay! A simple way to ease into this realm of virtual training is to set up a forum. Simply add your clients, team members, mom and dad, whoever will join you and begin the discussion. Some clients send out their products via ebook or PDF, but still want to provide support for Q&A in one location. This would be a great solution for you.
Regardless of which level you’d like to provide your tribe, you don’t have to do it alone.
If this has been on your to-do list, but haven’t had the time, fill out this form.
We have a team of VAs that are trained to offer high level service, including the setup of a member’s area. By providing places like a member’s area, you are telling your audience that you want to give them the best support and experience possible.
