Straightforward vs Complex Membership Sites Let’s be honest – there are straightforward membership sites and complex ones. Straightforward membership sites don’t have to be simple. I’m not saying that. What I am saying is that if your focus is the following, I’d call that a straightforward membership site: Charge someone to join the membership site Put them into a membership role Allow them to view protected content others don’t get to see Even drip that content to them over time Renew their membership every certain number of days This is straightforward. It’s a little like saying you want to drive a car that has wheels, doors and windows, and can get you to places up to 400 miles away. Many cars will get you where you need to go, because that request is well understood and, again, straightforward. In those cases, my recommendation (more often than not) is MemberPress. I’m pretty certain about my recommendation because last year I reviewed 30 membership plugins. But what happens when you want something else? What happens when you also want your members to be able to make donations? What happens when you also want your members to get a discount (for being a member) on other products?
