If you’re looking to setup a WordPress membership website, I’ll take you through a crash course using the Restrict Content Pro membership plugin. I also cover the choosing the right audience of your membership website, the marketing messaging you should use, and setting up the various call to actions throughout your website.

If you’re planning on offering an e-book for sale, we’ll discuss using Easy Digital Downloads and how you can sell the book separately or for free with a membership account.

We’ll wrap up the video with pricing table setup and e-mail pop-up optin boxes, so you can grow your e-mail list.
