How to Sell Courses on WordPress With MemberPress Courses

how to sell courses on wordpress with memberpress courses

If you're a modern entrepreneur, there's a good chance you've been wondering how to sell courses on WordPress. With the new MemberPress Courses Add-on, you can easily sell courses online using WordPress. The process has become as easy as drag and drop and as affordable as purchasing MemberPress — making what was once a huge, overwhelming job an incredibly painless one.

With this online course plugin for WordPress, you get all the ease of use you expect from MemberPress combined with powerful features specifically designed to make building online classes super simple. The Courses Add-on takes all that complexity and boils it down to a basic, click-and-go process.

The best part is that Courses is now included as part of MemberPress, so every feature is built right in, and no separate download is required.

Online courses are no longer an overwhelming endeavor

Even before COVID hit, instructional online courses were booming. But usher in the age of stay-at-home, and we’ve seen this business model skyrocket in popularity. Many of our customers here at MemberPress operate these types of membership businesses. 

And it’s no wonder. With time on their hands and curiosity on their minds, folks are eager to engage in online classes for everything from fitness and business to knitting, dancing, and pretty much anything else you can imagine teaching or learning.

But what’s held many people back from taking advantage of the booming online courses industry are the difficulty and costs of set up.

With potentially thousands of hierarchical pages to organize, tons of content to produce, and complicated coding to tinker with, the whole thing can seem out of reach.

No complex coding required

MemberPress Courses Classroom Mode
Classroom Mode allows you to focus on creating great content.

As mentioned, creating an online course website has traditionally required massive amounts of complicated coding. Before—in addition to building your course—you’d have to spend countless hours tweaking the theme and fiddling with HTML and CSS.

Our new add-on makes all that confusing coding a thing of the past. Features like the MemberPress Classroom Mode take care of the look and feel (and are easily customizable via the WordPress Customizer), so you can focus on creating great content.

There’s no need for coding knowledge because all the styling is built right in — even awesome features like progress tracking (more on that later).

In Classroom Mode, the add-on provides its own modern styling for your courses and lessons, allowing you to develop beautiful front end content without ever having to bother with styling.

Courses adds powerful WordPress LMS features to MemberPress that do the work for you. You can even see what your front end changes will look like live, right from the WordPress Customizer. 

Course progress tracking

memberpress courses progress tracking
Users and admins can easily keep track of progress with the progress tracking feature.

In the past, it’s been necessary to install a separate WordPress LMS plugin to enable progress tracking through your curriculum when using MemberPress. But not any more. 

With MemberPress Courses, users are able to see their progress on each class they've started. Not only that, but as a site admin you’ll be able to see how your subscribers are progressing through the curriculum, as well. This information provides valuable insight into the user-friendliness and popularity of your courses.

No more fiddling around with pages, sub-pages, and custom post types

View and edit your courses from one central location.

There’s no longer a need to decide where your course content will reside in WordPress, to build out pages and subpages, or to set up custom post types. And unless you need some pretty advanced features for your curriculum, you also no longer need to add a WordPress LMS plugin alongside MemberPress.

The Courses Add-on provides a simple menu item in MemberPress where you can access all of your courses. From this menu item you’re able to see all of your curriculum in one place, plus add new and edit existing courses.

Build your Course Curriculum… Visually

memberpress courses visual builder
The visual builder makes creating and editing courses a simple click-and-drag process.

Also, you can now edit all of your online courses and corresponding lessons right in the WordPress Block Editor. Using the Curriculum tab, you can even move lessons around within courses using a simple click and drag feature. 

Easily create and manage access rules

As with all MemberPress products, the new add-on allows you to protect your online course content with easy-to-use rules. You can protect single courses, sets of courses, or courses with any other tag or category you set up. With this feature you can communicate added value to your users without having to include a word of up-sell jargon (though there’s nothing wrong with that!).

Use the sales feature to build subscriptions

The sales feature helps you grow your customer base automatically.

Speaking of up-sell jargon, when a user encounters a page they don’t have access to, you want to make sure they have the option to subscribe. The add-on makes this a piece of cake, enabling you to create a sales page which users encounter whenever they don’t have access to a specific course or lesson. 

Advanced features for power users

If you have more experience up your sleeve and would like to customize things a bit more, the new add-on has you covered. As a power user, you can simply disable Classroom mode so that you have more control over the look and feel of your courses. Whatever your level of understanding and experience, the new MemberPress Courses Add-on features are built to accommodate your needs.

    I LOVE THIS! Thank you. We host a yearly online conference and I have a feeling the courses feature is going to make our work much easier and cleaner. I can't wait to test this new feature.

      Syble Harrison

      September 10, 2020

      Hi Garritt, We'd love to see how things turn out with your conference implementation. Keep us posted!

    This looks Great! Will Courses work well with Elementor, or are there plans to connect aspects of Courses with Elementor?

      Paul C

      September 9, 2020

      Yes, you should be able to design your individual lessons with Elementor by enabling the "Lessons" post type in Elementor's Settings.

        Paul C

        September 9, 2020

        I forgot to mention, this works if "Classroom Mode" is disabled in Courses. When using Classroom Mode, it's best to design your lessons with Gutenberg currently as the Elementor styles would not be present in Classroom Mode.

    September 9, 2020

    Hooray! This is exciting news. Just in time for me too. I was stressing and you made it easy. Bravo.

      Syble Harrison

      September 10, 2020

      Hi Katherine, We think it's pretty exciting, too! So glad to hear that Courses will make things easier for you. :)

    September 9, 2020

    This is awesome, in all honesty, I was considering switching to an LMS that just introduced memberships and about the same price as MP. Will this be looking to include extra features like certificates, quizzes, 'homework' submissions, etc?

      Paul C

      September 9, 2020

      Thanks for reaching out, yes at this point our Courses add-on is quite basic. We'll definitely be collecting feedback and adding additional features over the coming months and years.

    Hi - not sure where to report this? Activating the courses plugin caused the admin toolbar to disappear from the top of the page when viewing a live page on the site (not just a courses page) logged in as the editor/admin. The toolbar returned when I deactivated the courses plugin. No other changes were made.

      Paul C

      September 10, 2020

      Thanks for the heads up, I've been able to replicate this on my end and we'll have our developers take a look and provide a fix.

    September 10, 2020

    This is fantastic! 😍

      Syble Harrison

      Hi Louise, We're so glad you're excited about Courses. We are, too!

    September 10, 2020

    Hi there, Thanks so much for this! How do I integrate this new add on with Divi? Any tips? Thanks, Elsa

      Paul C

      September 10, 2020

      We're looking into page builder compatibility, but for now Gutenberg is best - especially with Classroom mode enabled.

    Gary

    September 10, 2020

    first of all congrats on such a great feature. I found that when classroom mode enabled the navigation bar on top ( ) gets hidden on mobile or small screens behind the main body section ( I transalated it into spansish , so it may be the number of characters) please advise the top progression bar is essential for users navigation .. this only happens on mobile. regards, keep up the great work! Gary

      Paul C

      September 14, 2020

      Gary, if you wouldn't mind providing some screengrabs of your mobile device and sending them to us at [email protected] so we can have our developers take a look, that would be great. Thanks!

    Hello, Is this for video courses only? Do you have any quiz maker? Please make a quiz maker for this.. . Thanks!

    Derek

    September 11, 2020

    Thanks, looks like a great addition so far! Basically replaces having to use another separate plugin that may not integrate well. Hope you'll add basic quizzes/tests in the future.

    Yvonne Brandenburg

    September 12, 2020

    This is awesome. The only thing keeping us from switching today is the ability to have quizzes and certificates of completion. I hope this is a feature you are working on.

    October 9, 2020

    Can lessons in courses play sequentially, one after the other, or does the user have to come back to the website to get the next lesson in a course?

      Paul C

      October 9, 2020

      Hi Bill, not yet - but it's something we're looking into for a future update.

    Ragna Søberg

    October 28, 2020

    Hi! I love MemberPress and use for one of my premium sites. It is so smoothe and easy to use. I also installed Courses since I am planning on making an online course as well. However this bugged my Hestia theme and the outline for my blog got all messed up. Is this an issue you awesome guys are working on? Thank you for all your wonderfull work!

      Paul C

      October 28, 2020

      Ragna, we have released an update to Courses yesterday which should have a fix for this. If it's still happening to you, try updating Courses. If that doesn't help, open a support ticket with our team so we can take a closer look at it for you thanks. Glad you're liking MemberPress, thanks for the kind words :D

    MemberPress is one of the Best Online Course software that I have come across. I am aware of implementing a similar idea using a custom post type. But the idea is too complicated for any beginner considering the amount of coding one has to do. MemberPress makes it easy. Keep it up!

    Vitor Gonçalves

    November 13, 2020

    I was thinking of making an online course to help my services and I didn't know that a membershiip plugin could do the Job! amazing Stuff!

    Sarah Butts

    November 14, 2020

    This site sounds like it is easy to navigate! I especially like you can opt in to subscribe to courses you come across! How much will this cost?

      Syble Harrison

      November 19, 2020

      Hi Sarah, Courses is included with MemberPress, so there is no extra charge. All you have to do is activate the add-on. This knowledge base article should be helpful: https://docs.memberpress.com/article/326-getting-started-with-memberpress-courses.

    November 15, 2020

    The fact that you do not need to be familiar with coding makes this a game changer.

    THIS is exactly what I wanted! I signed up for memberpress some time ago and decided to use another plugin to do the course section of things! Now that it's easily integrated properly and it looks so easy to use, I will surely be trying this feature out VERY soon!

    Andrea Mulder-Slater

    November 16, 2020

    I have been struggling with trying to figure out how to provide targeted training sessions to my members within my existing membership site. It sounds like this is the answer! My membership helps adults teach art to children and I know I'll be using the Courses feature to help them even more.

    Ripon

    November 16, 2020

    I love it! glad to know that is now included as part of MemberPress

    Sounds concise, well organized, and understandable.

    JT

    November 16, 2020

    I see various levels of membership that you can restrict your content to. Can you also choose to sell just an individual course without linking to the membership level? A one time purchase outside the membership levels?

      Paul C

      November 19, 2020

      Hi JT, yes you would need a Membership to sell in order to protect the course currently. Hope that answers your question?

    Balint

    November 16, 2020

    This is awesome. The only thing keeping us from switching today is the ability to have quizzes and certificates of completion. I hope this is a feature you are working on.

    Anthony Butcher

    November 17, 2020

    Is there a way to drip the content within a course? In the example given, it has Week 1, Week 2 etc, but members can see all of it straight away and I can't work out how to enable weekly dripping. Any ideas please?

      Paul C

      November 19, 2020

      Hi Anthony, we are looking into adding a dripping feature for lessons, but unfortunately it's not currently a supported feature.

    Anne S

    November 17, 2020

    Always stopped adding courses to my home-based business by the sheer complexity of the task and needing to be a whiz at the computer! This drag and drop no-coding Memberpress courses makes it all seem possible again! Thank you for the information

    Noah Hankinson

    November 17, 2020

    How easy is it to customize the UI? Is it like elementor?

    Our live bootcamp delivery to high school students has been derailed by COVID. I am looking forward to looking at Memberpress as a possible alternative delivery mechanism for future virtual bootcamps.

    Brittney Wilson

    November 21, 2020

    This seems like a much more profitable strategy than using a 3rd party course hosting site.

    PACREIS

    November 22, 2020

    I've been waiting for something like this to come up with MemberPress plugin. It will make our job so much quicker and easier to deliver and we will have more time to spend with helping clients organise and create content for their courses. Brilliant. Sofia

    This looks like a great update. I've been using another well-known LMS but growing increasingly frustrated with the UI. This looks so much cleaner and more intuitive. Definitely going to explore further and may make the switch!

    I’ve been using Moodle for quite some time but this looks more promising. Will give it a try with the Black Friday deal.

      Graham, yes you can embed videos into your lessons and present your content to your students/members that way.

      Yes, it is very easy to use for creating your Courses and Lesson content!

    This is awesome! I had thought about creating a course a few years back to make some extra income but I didn't have the faintest idea what to use.

    Segovia Smith

    November 25, 2020

    So this looks great... having it built-in to MP is a nice enhancement, but the big Q is, how is this different from MemberPress + LearnDash as it looks like that's what you're using under the hood?

      Paul C

      November 27, 2020

      At this stage Courses add-on is quite basic in functionality. For example if you need quizzes, certificates or other more mature LMS features...then sticking with LearnDash or another more mature LMS is going to be best.

    Alan Slavens

    November 27, 2020

    It's amazing what this add-on can do, simplifying set-up which as you said is the hardest part! MemberPress really seems like the all-in-one membership plugin. So glad I got it. Thanks Blair and Spencer for the helpful video too!

    This is a great feature! I think it will really be an asset to me in my business. Already set one course up, am in the process of trying another with more to follow. I'd love to see a few things added to make them more personalized, but so far, so good! :D Thanks for adding this feature!

    December 8, 2020

    The good thing I find with using MemberPress is how easy it is to use! I have set up a new website i.e. www.devonartist.co.uk using the MemberPress facility. The fact that you don’t need to understand a coding language such as php, html 5 or even CSS is brilliant, so adding new members, adjusting their accounts when asked especially when people do forget their passwords, can’t see the ‘reset password’ link (it is there of course) and then send an email complaining. So being able to adjust this, plus choose a very secure auto generated password for them is idea and for me, hassle-free. Setting up the main curriculum for my watercolour art courses was a breeze to set up. Being able to specify the correct pages that only my paid members can access works really well. I’ve even set up a separate area for free content using this facility, encouraging my ‘free’ members to join up as a paid member. I wouldn’t be able to do any of these things without MemberPress and their clever, easy to use settings. Being able to learn the things I now know is only due to the courses MemberPress provide, trying to understand and learn how things work would have taken much longer to do, not because their add-on is difficult, it’s the complete opposite, but more because I needed to get the website up and running for a membership facility very quickly. So my advice, take their courses, learn quickly with their easy way of explaining things and get that membership website up and running smoothly and efficiently. God for it! Paul Hopkinson

    Before this arrived, I wished there was an LMS integration with Memberpress. Now there is, and I am so glad. It is really easy to use and personalise, but it would be great if the lessons themselves could be created fully in Elementor. (Maybe there is a way, but I haven’t yet figured it out) Please could you create a reward/badge/gamification feature too?

      We are hoping to add support in our Lessons for popular page builders soon. And you might look at GamiPress for Gamification integration.

    I have been really happy with the courses feature. It is easy to use (I have had a few problems, but the support staff have been great). I love that you can create a lesson, without creating a page. I have about 80 pages on my website and was not looking forward to having to create another 25 for my course. Now I don't have to!

    I am just getting started with moving my courses from another course product to the new MemberPress Courses and I am already impressed with what you can do with this new add on as well as the ease of adding the already prepared courses. I am sure adding new courses will be just as fast and simple. I have been using MemberPress for over 2 years and the addition of the Courses add on lets me have everything within one program and saves me money on top of that. I would say they are stuck with me for a long time to come.

    I'm so happy to be able to offer the Courses option as part of MemberPress for my clients! This is exactly what we needed. The option to link to the sales page whenever a potential customer doesn't have access to content is extremely effective for conversions. Love it!

    The secret to creating quality courses from the start is to map out all of your course content from the outset. This way, you can see how you want your user to be guided through your course content from beginning to end.

    This was so timely for me as I was looking at figuring out how to host my courses. It was super easy to get my course uploaded and it looks so professional. Plus, I didn't have to learn or buy another piece of software. Thanks for making my life just a little bit easier :)

    I run an e-information education site. This will help monetize the content through CME courses and quizzes without an additional plugin. Perfect!

    I really love that you have your own course solution. I prefer this than having different softwares for it. I hope you continue improving it. Congrats!

    Excited to use this tool for our non-profit advocacy training for people across the country. Previously, we would have done this training in person, but the seamless addition of this tool to our website allows for a much larger reach for our program. So far the courses add-in has been very easy to use. Looking forward to finishing our design and opening our course for enrollment next year.

    This is brilliant! Digital courses are such a hot topic right now with so many people moving online over the pandemic. Brilliant feature. I've already written 2 mini courses and am onto my bigger ticket items now!

    I am so excited about this feature. This looks like exactly what I've been looking for and I really appreciate that there's no additional downloads necessary. Can't wait to start testing it out. :)

    Loving MemberPress Courses so far. The layout is easy to use and everything is so well integrated into WordPress we are excited to use this for our non-profit.

    Once this rolled out I dumped Learndash. I didn't need the complexities of Learndash and this fit the bill.

    This is an exciting addition to the Memberpress suite; and timely! I have a client who provides CLE sessions & wanted tool to setup attendees. I was thrilled that I could immediately tell her "GOT YOUR TOOL!" Had her set up in a day. And with so much online learning happening because of the pandemic, this couldn't have come at a better time.

    I may use this to build out a future course/membership site. For basic needs it looks like it would simplify the rollout and support of adding more plugins.

    I love this feature! I've built several sites with Learndash and had to integrate Learndash with Memberpress. It was ok, but not as integrated. I'm excited to us the new Memberpress, built-in course management feature. It's a natural compliment to an already full-featured solution!

    I was bouncing off the walls when I found this. I had been using a different course / content system on my Wordpress hosted sites and spent considerable time configuring gateway plugins, SSL certificates, and just more software to maintain a training offering. Out of the box I was quickly able to layout a multi week training curriculum and hand it off to my non-technical business partner who filled in the course content. Having everything local to the target Wordpress Membership site really simplifies the setup and delivery process. This saved my bacon .... Thanks! Kevin Hrim MB Hrim Company

    Oh my gosh-where was this when I needed it years back? I'm so glad this is offered now. I've been putting out online courses for almost 8 years now and would have LOVED this. I especially appreciated the way clients can track their progress as well as the ease of setting it up. As a visual learner myself, this seems completely intuitive to set up. Can't wait to dabble...

    We really don't use that much in the way of quizzes and advanced Learndash features, so perhaps this will simplify the process. I'm going to have to put some R&D into this and give it a test run on a future project. Thanks for continuing to innovate.

    I love this!! Finally I got rid of LearnDash and then the Elementor integration was the cherry on top! Thank you for this, it's been an awesome unexpected gift!!

    Too many plug-ins slow down a site, so I love that Memberpress has included this feature in their plug-in! Looking forward to trying it out on my membership site.

    MemberPress Courses is incredible. I had never made a course before I got this MemberPress account. I was able to make an entire course on how to use Canva in only a few hours! (And that was because I was making the content, not trying to figure out how to set up the course on my website) It literally was so easy. I'm blown away by how professional it looks. Great user experience as well. Having this quality of course design and structure just brought my website to a whole new level. Very legit!

    This feels like a great way of building your brand. Selling online courses is one of those things that everyone should be doing and MemberPress makes things really easy. I'm glad I found this.

    This is awesome! I love that there are no additional plugins needed, minimizing the chances of a plugin conflict or potentially bogging down our site's performance. I'm a visual person, so having a live editor is a huge benefit, and I love the progress tracking. Creating a professional online learning platform has never seemed easier.

    Will you be adding elementor widgets so addon so that we can add in parts of the course when editing with Elementor? If we could add the lessons list, progress bar etc. then style them ourselves, that would be perfect. Then we could create our own Elementor Theme builder templates and apply those templates to the lessons or to all courses by default. Thanks it looks great already but some Elementro widgets would make this one of the best course plugins on the market. Cheers!

      Paul C

      January 28, 2021

      Thanks for the feedback Robert. I'm curious, are you using our Classroom mode or just the standard theme templates?

    This couldn't have come at a better time - we are currently creating several courses for our members, and by keeping it all in Memberpress, we can offer our members--and future members--a seamless experience!

    Hi Paul. I'm loving the course feature! So easy to use. I just wonder if we can add certificates to the end of the course yet? We're still using teachable too as at the moment it has more features but are wanting to completely move over to memberpress so hoping we can do this soon Also when will we be able to use elementor in classroom mode? Other than that it's a fantastic time saving product! Thank you

      Hi Laura, We're so glad to hear that you're loving MemberPress Courses! The certificates feature and the ability to use Elementor in Classroom Mode are both in development. Stay tuned for updates. Thanks! Syble

    Hi! I've been using MemberPress for years and I've been offering courses with it, just restricting posts content and organising them in an index page. If I'd activate the courses add-on now, could I profit all that posts content or should I copy that content, page per page, to an specific courses CPT? It's really good that feature, but I wouldn't like to have to copy-paste ALL my private content...
