Membership Site Builds

The timeline is mapped out on your wall on multicolor post-it notes. Your trusty to-do list is by your side, along with a fresh cup of coffee. All your workbooks are outlined and ready. You get chills picturing your future clients breaking through to their greatness as you lead on a powerful 90 day coaching journey. All systems are go. It’s time to LAUNCH this program out into the world. You start cracking away at your list by Googling “how to make a membership site.”

Fast forward 8 hours and you are no closer to having said membership site. In fact, it feels like you moved backwards because your fruitless searching and DIY efforts have dredged up more questions than answers. Should I use Wordpress, Squarespace, or an out-of-the-box platform? What membership plugin should I use for password management and taking payments? What the heck is “drip feed” content?!

You’re no cavewoman when it comes technology. In fact, you’re quite savvy with it and you’ve done all the heavy technological lifting since you started your business, but this whole process has you in a tailspin. What gives?

Newsflash: Just because you can DIY your membership site, doesn’t mean you should.

It’s time to hand over the technology reigns so you can spend your time connecting with your ideal clients, running webinars, sending out mailers, answering questions, and ultimately filling the group program you poured your heart and soul into to create. 

Let me focus on my zone of genius while you focus on yours.

Hi! I’m Kim. I have a decade of experience in the learning and training industry, along with a Masters degree in Training & Development. I’ve worked on countless high-level membership sites, developed powerful content, and delivered high-impact learning programs serving thousands of students. In fact, you can also call me Professor Kim because I still teach graduate-level courses on building and running effective online programs. Saying I’m passionate about designing and delivering learning programs is an understatement.

I know from experience that group programs and self-study courses are extremely effective and powerful when delivered strategically. Luckily, you don’t have to be an expert in online content delivery to have an amazing course. That’s what I’m here for.

I want you to have an impact on the world by sharing your gifts with as many clients as possible, hassle-free.

Technology should be an asset and not a liability to achieving your vision. This is why I offer full-service membership site builds in Squarespace or WordPress. All you need to bring to the table is your vision for the course, and I’ll bring the strategy, project management, and technical skills.

When we work together you don’t just get a membership site, we co-create an immersive, high-end course experience that leaves your clients feeling supported and positions you as the professional you are.

Check out what my client Sarah had to say about working together during her $200K launch:

When your program content is delivered on a stunning, strategic membership site, you add value and can charge more.

Not only do I build your membership site for you, but I also teach you everything you need to know when it comes to running your snazzy new member site including how to add site-protected content throughout your program (and for future programs), manage users, and more! I also stay on for support during your first launch and run of the program. If something doesn’t work as planned, I’ll swoop in to troubleshoot in a flash. Once the initial run of the program is over, you and your VA will be fully prepared to take back the reigns of the membership site.

How it works:

  1. You click a Clarity Call button on this page, fill out a questionnaire, and schedule a time for us to chat.

  2. We meet to discuss your needs and determine whether we’re a good match to work together.

  3. If we’re a match, you purchase your membership site services. 

  4. We meet for our 60 minute kickoff strategy session. You’ll leave with a to-do list to strategically propel your program vision forward.

  5. I'll create and send you a project plan based on what we discuss in the strategy session.

  6. I'll get to work on a membership site that will WOW your future clients.

  7. Once the work is finished, you'll receive launch training videos covering how to manage everything so that you (or your VA) know what to do.
  8. Once your site and program or course is launched, I provide email support during your first run of the program to handle any technical issues related to the membership site.

FAQs

What can I use my membership site for?
Membership sites are perfect for group programs, self-study courses, and subscription content services.


Do I need to be good at technology to manage a membership site?
No! With the 90 day technical support and custom video tutorial I provide, you and your VA will have everything needed to run your site like a pro going forward.


Can membership sites be built in Squarespace?
Yes, absolutely! This is a great option if you’re already using Squarespace because you can use the URL you already have and you stay within a platform you’re already familiar with.


What is the difference between building a membership site in Squarespace versus WordPress?
The benefit to Wordpress can be summed up in one word: automation. Wordpress supports complete automation of the membership site experience which means less stress and time invested by you and your members. Other than that, both platforms are extremely effective.


How will I know which plug-in is best for me?
I have a few go-to plug-ins for both Wordpress and Squarespace websites. Prices and features vary. We will determine which is best based on your individual needs during our strategy call.


Do you also support out-of-the-box systems like Zippy Courses, Kajabi, and Rainmaker?
Yes, absolutely. The price varies. Book a clarity call so I can discuss your needs and draft a price quote.


What is drip feed content?
“Drip-feeding” is just a fancy way of saying, “scheduled lesson delivery”. You determine when you want certain content in your course or program to become available after someone signs-up, and it will deliver the same way for every user no matter when they sign-up. We can discuss if this makes sense for your offering during your strategy call.


Can I automate the sign-up process for new members?
This can be done regardless of the platform you choose to use.


Do I have to have all my content ready before we begin working together?
You can come as you are! In fact, many of my clients build and/or tweak their content up until a week or two before go live. As entrepreneurs, I know that we don’t always have time to sit down and create a dozen multi-page workbooks in one sitting. Sometimes we just have to be a few steps ahead of the curve. And that’s okay! All you need come with is a vision for your program or course. From there, we’ll partner together to make your membership site and overall course content freaking incredible!


What if I have a technical issue while my program is live?
During the first 90 days after your launch, I will be available via email for technical support. Sleep like a baby knowing you have me on your team to troubleshoot if any member has a technical issue or something doesn’t go as planned.


Once you build the membership site, how will I know what to do after your work is done?
As we near the end of the 90-day support period, you will receive a custom training video that shows you everything you need to know about how your membership site is set up on the back-end so you and your VA will be able to confidently take charge managing the membership site going forward.


Do you build sales pages that go in conjunction with the membership sites that you built?
Yes! This is a VIP upgrade. You can add this to your membership site build!
