As many of my readers know – I highly recommend the Wishlist Member Plugin for WordPress to implement a membership site.  This is for several reasons – and the reasons just keep on coming, as the Wishlist Products team is continually developing the functionality of the plugin.

When I first reviewed Wishlist Member in March this year, I noted some things that I felt it was lacking… Since then, these have been rectified and I think the product is fabulous.

Integrated Payments

My main concern with the Wishlist Member plugin is that it didn’t integrate with your payment processing and cancelling members in your membership site was a manual process – this has now been rectified.  Wishlist member now integrates with Paypal, 1 Shopping Cart, Clickbank and QuickPayPro to process and manage payments – very nice.

However, the changes don’t just finish there – the plugin also integrates directly with several autoresponders including Aweber, Autoresponse Plus and GetResponse.  This makes managing your email marketing campaigns a snap.

Sequential Upgrades

The other really nice feature is the Sequential Upgrade functionality.  The biggest issue that many of my clients have when considering a membership site is how to ‘drip feed’ information to their members over time — this protects their content and increases the likelihood that a member will remain a member for longer.   Sequential Upgrade provides you with this ‘drip feed’ capability.  When a member joins your site, they are given access to the first Months (or periods) content.  After a pre-determined amount of time, they are automatically given access to the next piec of information…  This comes in very handy if you want to set up a Trial Membership and then automatically upgrade the user to a paying membership at the end of the Trial Period.

Get Your Membership Site Online – With My Help

I’m running a series of 7 Webinars through July / August 2009 that will walk your through EXACTLY how to set up the Wishlist Plugin for your membership.

I want to help you get started.  I’m going to run a series of How-To, Hands On Webinars, showing you EXACTLY how to  implement the Wishlist plug-in on your website and integrate it with Aweber, Paypal, Clickbank and 1 Shopping Cart.
