K: What’s up guys?

R: How’s it going?

K: We just want to do a brief episode about a piece of software called, Wishlist Member. Well, Wishlist Member is a plug-in for Wordpress that basically can turn any Wordpress blog into a full-on membership site.

So, let’s say that you’ve got a...pretty much anything...like, let’s say you’ve got a blog and you want to create a special gold VIP members area where they get access to posts that the normal people don’t get. Wishlist Member makes this incredibly easy. It’s basically...works just like any other Wordpress plug-in. You throw it in, you activate it. You set up a bunch of pages on your Wordpress to be the Log-in page. You know, kind of like the Welcome page, the You Have Been Signed Out page. Kind of create all those, and then you pretty much have a membership site, more or less, right out of the box. It’s pretty awesome.

R: Yeah. When you installed on one of those...on that site last week, it probably only took you like half an hour to get everything pretty much up and running. I mean, there are some things you had to do to specialize different pages and stuff, but for the most part, it didn’t seem like it took that long.

K: I had never even used it before, and I got it completely set-up in about less than an hour or pretty close to an hour, I would say. I mean, it helps if you understand Wordpress. Like if you know how to make a page on Wordpress, if you know how to install a plug-in, but it was real simple.

R: Obviously, you have to have a pretty good working knowledge of Wordpress, which is just something on its own that you have to know for...in order to use most plug-ins and stuff like that, but, yeah. It’s pretty awesome. You go to the page. You fill-in your log-in information. It makes your site look very professional.

Honestly, I had no idea that it was even running on Wishlist Member. I thought it was like something that you would like hand code it out yourself for some reason.

K: Yeah. I think if you have a Wordpress blog, you should consider a...create like a gold VIP members area as a monetization strategy.

R: Yeah, absolutely.

K: Because it’s so easy to do.

R: Yeah. At the very least, get it and play around with it because it’s a good tool to have in your arsenal. If you ever need to hide content from people or some different...anything like that. It’s a good thing to have your access.

K: Yeah. I fully haven’t played with all the options, but it lets you have like different subscription levels, you can do different kinds of upsells, you can drip content. There’s a lot of like...actually, I’m not a hundred percent sure. You can drip content by having people stairstep from level 1 to level 2 to level 3 based on time. So, it’s pretty cool.

It also integrates with PayPal and a number of shopping cart type things if you’re trying to do paid content.

R: Yes. That’s awesome. So check it out at the link underneath this thing.

K: Yup.
