Let’s talk about the fun stuff: collecting members and money. This is what it’s all about, right? In order to successfully grow your business, it’s essential to have systems in place to add members and take payment. In this section of our Best Practices we cover setting up Membership Levels and Bundles, checkout, payment integration and signing up free members.
Ready to sell your membership? Learn how to setup the basic elements. Membership Levels function as the base access allowing users to login to their account and view any associated protected content on your MemberMouse site. Each member can only have one Membership Level added to an account at a time.
Bundles rock! They give you unparalleled flexibility to protect, package and sell your content. Learn how to setup the basic elements here. Bundles may be used either in conjunction with Membership Levels, or on their own. They can function as add-ons, and members can purchase unlimited Bundles on their account to gain additional access to content without losing any previous access. Pretty cool, huh?
Did you know you can use MemberMouse to sell physical products? MemberMouse gives you the power to create products that can be associated with physical goods and have flat rate shipping costs added at the time of purchase. MemberMouse doesn’t have shopping cart functionality, so currently only one product can be purchased at a time.
There are two ways to use signup forms in MemberMouse, and both can be present on your site at the same time. The Checkout Core Page is created when MemberMouse is installed and acts as your main signup page. You can also create a free member form to sign up free members, and if you use an Email Integration with MemberMouse (like MailChimp), this can also act as a mailing list signup.
Upselling is a powerful sales strategy where the seller provides opportunities for customers to purchase additional products or services, often for the sole purpose of making a larger sale. With MemberMouse, you can create upsell offers using product-specific confirmation pages or SmartTags to display the upsell offer to members in a targeted way. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…
Who doesn’t love a coupon? MemberMouse provides you with the ability to offer your members discounts in a variety of ways using coupons. Coupons can be set to take a dollar or percentage off of the price or make the item completely free. For subscription products, you can set the coupon to apply to the first payment or all payments. You also have the option to set start and end dates, a limit for the number of uses for a coupon or restrict the coupon use only to certain products. Happy couponing!
This is a step-by-step guide of setting up and using a lot of the core functionality in MemberMouse. Even though it was shot on an older version of the plugin, the training and concepts covered translate and are extremely valuable.
