Where do you host your membership, Lisa?
I get asked this all the time! And the answer is ... it takes a village, or at least a suite.
Below is a list of the software I use to run and grow my membership. They are affiliate links that will pay me a small commission (with no additional cost to you). They are listed here because these are the ones I've chosen based on pricing, simplicity and how they work together. I have no ownership or other interest in any of these resources. They are simply great tools!
I LOVE hosting my community here. It's perfect for business owners who wants an engaging place to communicate with their members off of Facebook.
The features I love most are: the Events calendar, the Intro post each member creates when they join, the weekly digest and the App! It's the most streamlined community platform I've seen.
Plus it's easy to set up! You can start with a 14-day free trial.
I use New Zenler to host my courses, recordings & trainings for the Scaling Deep Society and all other courses in my business. I can choose the courses I want to bundle into my membership or sell them individually.
They have a simple drag-and-drop builder is, and the intuitive features and tools have allow me to set up new trainings and courses in no time at all. And it's not as expensive as some of the common ones used in the online world.
Mailerlite is hands-down the most economical and easy way to start building and communicating with your list. It's got all of the features you need for weekly emails, automations and funnels. I LOVE it.
The customer service is highly responsive and will help you with any problem.
And best of all, you can get started for free & it stays that way until you get bigger.
I've been pretty absent on all the social channels this past year. That doesn't mean I want an outdated profile on IG. Since feed posts aren't working well right now, a static 9-grid was the right solution for me. Full of important info, this customizable Canva template is a unique way to make your feed pop while effectively getting your message across. Perfect if you're not a designer!
ThriveCart is a super robust and simple shopping cart solution. You can sell services, products, program and everything else. Design beautiful check-out forms, add order bumps to your sales carts and it even calculates the sales tax based on where your buyers live.
It also integrates directly with Mailierlite so you can add those buyers right to your list.
For some of us getting found on a search means a new client without any cost. SEO can be a lot to navigate which is why I use Pathfinder to give us a step-by-step process for amplifying our website’s reach.
There's an easy-to-follow checklist plus COACHING calls, which help us make sense of all of it. And it's not very expensive. A must for DIYers.
