Lesson 1: How to Plan and Organize Content on Your Membership Site

A successful membership site requires a well-planned and executed content strategy. It’s not just about producing content, but also knowing what content your members want, how to structure it, and how to deliver it effectively.

In this Video…

We’ll cover the fundamental steps of planning, uploading, and organizing content on your membership site.

What is Membership Site Content?

Membership site content is the exclusive material only accessible to members who have subscribed or paid to access your website. 

Blog posts are one of the most popular types of content you could offer, but having a variety of membership material gives your site the spice it needs to keep members interested and engaged with what you have to share.

Here’s a glimps at the type of content you could include on your membership site: 

  • Blog articles
  • Online courses
  • Videos
  • Podcasts
  • eBooks
  • Digital downloads
  • Software 
  • Images
  • Webinars 
  • Coaching sessions 
  • Private + social discussion platforms 
  • and so much more! 

The important thing is that you consistently deliver fresh and innovative content. This isn’t a “one-hit-wonder” line of business. Try your hand at a few different types of content to see what comes easy to you and what has your audience asking for more. 

How to Organize Content on Your Membership Site

The content on your membership site can be freely available to your readers, or you can charge a subscription fee. We highly suggest that you offer both free and paid content on your site. 

Then, how you determine which content to protect behind a paywall should be based on how much time you put into creating your content and how valuable it is. We’ll go more in-depth on how to protect your content later on in Lesson 4. 

For now, focus on keeping your content nice and organized by assigning categories and tags. The more organized you are from the get-go, the easier it will be to build out memberships and protect your content in the future.
