WP Member Champ is a plugin that will allow you to create a simple membership site using WordPress. The plugin is very easy to use but is also very powerful in what it can do for your recurring income earning potential. We will be taking a look at its capabilities and ease of setup.

Memberships are a great way of earning a recurring income, the problem is that many marketers think that the software to run them is complicated and difficult to use. This might be the case with some of the sophisticated membership site plugins that cost a fair amount of money. In reality however those types of plugins have so many functions to them that they are hardly ever used to their full capacity. I believe this is where WP Member Champ is different, you get the essentials, the stuff you absolutely need without any distracting fluff functions that nobody ever uses.
Who is behind the software? The developers of WP Member Champ are Wilson Mattos and Jason Fladlien both people of high integrity who know how to look after their customers!
Under the Bonnet of WP Member Champ
The plugin will allow you to create three types of content. Firstly content that everybody can view, for instance the sales page of the membership site that you create. Secondly there is totally protected content. This is content that is behind closed doors that only those paying members will ever get to see it. Thirdly there is an option to add content that is a mix of viewable by all and viewable by members only.
This last option is extremely powerful imagine creating a great piece of content for your membership site allowing say the first third to be viewable as teaser content and then the rest of the content viewable only if the viewer subscribes. You can have all of your content like that so over time there could be hundreds of pieces of content in the search engines all feeding back to your membership site getting multiple sign ups a day.
You need to be able to take payments easily so the system integrates with Paypal. You can offer different types of membership.
• On-off lifetime membership payments
• Recurring monthly billing memberships
• Trial offer memberships
Trial offers are a super way to encourage multiple sign-ups for just a few dollars. If the member decides that they like the content they stay on as a member paying the higher fee. This could be a trial of say 7 or 14 days to get them hooked, then after the trial is over the full payment is made by Paypal automatically unless the member has cancelled within the trial period.
The payment options are all set-up in the settings with no need to do any setting up of them in Paypal itself.
Automatically Add Members to Your Aweber List
The WP Member Champ plugin will also automatically add the new member to your Aweber list. If you have double opt-in selected within the list settings at Aweber then the new member will need to confirm their subscription. I don’t need to tell you how important it is to build a list, especially of buyers, which is what your members will be. This plugin does it all automatically and seamlessly for you.
How Easy is it to Set up WP Member Champ?
It’s simple! Seriously it’s really easy to do. All that happens is you will upload the plugin and activate it. Next you will configure the settings which is as simple as adding your Paypal email and the pricing you will be charging, along with your Aweber list name. There are a couple of other things to fill in that take just seconds to do.
Next you would add some content and set up the protection that each piece of content will have. Again this is simplicity itself to do and can be managed at the click of an icon in the WordPress editor screen for each piece of content. If you know that every piece of content will only ever be available to members then you can select to auto protect all content as it’s created. This can always be changed later if needed, nothing is irreversible.
As users find your membership site and become paying members they will be added as subscribers to the “users” section of the WordPress admin area. In here you will be able to keep track of your members.
Should anyone refund or cancel then they will automatically be taken out of paid membership status by the plugin so that they can no longer view the content. The user isn’t deleted, they can re-subscribe at any time.
The last thing you need is to be handling is cancellations by hand, so basically as much as can be automated is, even lost passwords.
The WP Member Champ plugin can be used on an unlimited amount of sites that you own, so why not do more than one!
WP Member Champ Drawbacks
At the moment there is only integration with Aweber, I believe that this will change in the future however. It also only works with Paypal, that shouldn’t really be much of a problem because your customers to be like and trust Paypal so it’s a good payment solution to offer.
WP Member Champ has a great guarantee basically try it out and if you like it keep it, if you don’t then get a refund. The guarantee is valid for thirty days which is plenty of time for you to test out the plugins capabilities.
Wp Member Champ basically does what it says on the tin, it allows you to set up membership sites very quickly, yes less than two minutes is no hype! It integrates the payment method as quickly as you can type the Paypal email in and also integrates with Aweber to build your list just as quickly. I highly recommend WP Member Champ try it out today with absolutely no risk on your part.
