Do you ever feel like building an expansive and engaged audience online is a near-impossible task? Why do some people have massive, engaged audiences while others have… crickets? For the answer to that question, we turn to our guest Clayton Olson.

Not quite sure if you’re ready to start a membership site? Here are 10 ways you can test your idea and build an engaged audience at the same time.
MemberMouse is a WordPress membership plugin. Simply download the plugin and upload it to your WordPress installation, and you instantly get a flexible and feature-rich platform to grow almost any type of business.
The obvious advantage of using WordPress, is that it's a reliable, proven, and easy to use content management system. So much so, it's estimated that WordPress powers roughly 16% of the web.
No matter if you're selling digital products, subscription content, software as a service, or shipping physical goods, you need to deliver your core-value content in a protected area after a sign-up or a sale.
You can quickly and easily protect:
SmartTags are shortcodes that allow you to add all kinds of functionality to your WordPress pages without having to know anything about programming.
SmartTags put you in the driver's seat, and allow you to display dynamic content such as member details, upsells based on other products purchased, or even targeted offers based on the referring affiliate.
MemberMouse provides you with a suite of automated customer support tools. The "My Account" page gives a customer the ability to update their billing address, contact details, username and password, cancel their account and more.
MemberMouse will also email a customer when their card is declined, which saves you both time and money on customer service. It's things like this that make MemberMouse stand out from the competition.
Making decisions using average customer value as a bell-weather is a proven way to build a business with revenues in excess of 7 figures. Without a clear understanding of customer value, you have no way of accurately knowing the return on investment of your marketing dollars.
Improving retention is a time-tested approach to improving profits. Consider that just a 5% increase in customer retention can increase your profits by something like 75%.
Password protected member's area, easily protect pages, and deliver unique member home pages for each membership level.
Comprehensive member management including order history, engagement statistics, access rights, pause, cancel, refund and more.
Let customers update their personal and billing information, cancel their account, reset passwords and more.
Checkout pages configure themselves and are easily edited within WordPress. Get your checkout looking exactly how you want it.
Our extensive shortcode library adds dynamic functionality to your site without having to code. Display customer details, upgrades and more.
Maximize revenue with advanced billing functionality such as card-on-file and 1-click upsells.
Setup delivery schedules for your content and time-release programs. Easily copy schedules to different membership levels.
Sit back and let MemberMouse automatically downsell your customers when they attempt to cancel, increasing your revenue.
MemberMouse allows you to setup different price points for the same membership level to make split-testing prices easy.
Create one-time purchase products, recurring subscriptions, free trials, paid trials, payment plans, coupons and more.
Promoting your membership, products, and special offers on Facebook and Twitter is easy using MemberMouse's direct buy links.
Yes! We've got it. You can set the currency customers will pay you in and how prices will be displayed across the site. Learn more
Add support and sales accounts to your back-end without exposing access to your content or site configuration. (*Builder Plan and above).
In addition to the standard content protection mechanisms, MemberMouse can automatically lock accounts who share their login with others.
MemberMouse only integrates with PCI compliant billing vendors to make sure your customer data is always safe and secure.
Your members can gift memberships and bundles to other people. Makes it easy for people to share your membership site with friends.
Use MemberMouse's API and Push Notification system for external procedures such as physical fulfillment, call center notifications and more.
Make it easy for your members to register and login using social login functionality for the major social networks, Facebook, Twitter & Google+.
MemberMouse will optionally apply an appropriate discount to the customer's first charge during a membership level upgrade.
MemberMouse advanced plans and up have access to churn and retention metrics to help monitor and improve retention and profits.
MemberMouse will automatically email customers whose cards have been declined, keeping your revenue healthy, automatically.
Capture extended information about your customers anywhere on your site, even spread out a capture form over multiple pages.
Our database queries have been fine-tuned for maximum speed and reliability that both you and your customers will appreciate.
Selling additional products to your members is one of the easiest ways to increase profits. And the easiest way to do that is by using 1-click upsells. This one feature alone can add serious revenue to your business.
You can optionally ask the customer to confirm the order, or simply process the sale without confirmation. Note: this functionality requires a card-on-file billing gateway such as Stripe.
MemberMouse works with virtually every affiliate platform in existence.
Almost every affiliate platform uses pixel-tracking code to detect when a sale is made. By placing pixel-tracking code on MemberMouse confirmation pages you can track commissions with ease, using the software of your choosing. But there are even more powerful options available.
MemberMouse also offers powerful "commission profiles" and "partner payouts" that allow you to fine tune how and when a commission is generated. Setup revenue splits, claw back commissions on refunds, and track commissions on rebills. It's all happening! Heck, you can even create your own home-brewed affiliate system by combining our commission profiles with our push notification system (so you can send an email or call a custom script when new sales or rebill events occur).
Pixel-tracking is for amateurs you say? Fair enough. With our direct integration partners, commissions are generated only when MemberMouse says so. No more innacurate reports, no slippage. Every sale and commission is tracked with precision, and communication between your affiliate platform and MemberMouse is seamless. Automatically create new affiliate accounts when new members sign up, which means more money for everyone. Do we recommend doing things this way? You bet.
These guys have been in the affiliate tracking business for nearly 15 years. That's a long time. You can imagine they've got things figured out quite well by this point, and that's exactly why MemberMouse provides a direct integration with iDevAffiliate. Their pricing is great too. Learn more
MemberMouse integrates with best-in-class service providers for payment gateways and email marketing. We're constantly identifying and integrating with the smartest providers to maximize your results. Our "card-on-file" integrations will allow for 1-click upsells that do not require the customer to enter their credit card details when making additional purchases. At MemberMouse, we're committed to integrating with the most advanced platforms available to us, in order to maximize the revenue of your business.
Mailing lists are automatically kept up-to-date when new members join or when an existing account is changed.
MemberMouse also allows you to segment your list based on product purchases, so you can easily send targeted promotions to your customers. Integrating is easy, and takes just minutes.
MemberMouse fully integrates with the leading billing providers to make sure that your customer accounts are always in sync.
If a payment is declined by the payment processor, MemberMouse will automatically update the account status to reflect the decline, and send a recovery email. You'll never have to worry about billing being out of sync again.
With MemberMouse's API, Push Notification System, PHP Interface, and WordPress hooks, you can communicate and integrate with any system external to MemberMouse. It's easy to:
You may recognize some of our clients. Many of them are multi-million dollar membership and subscription businesses, who trust MemberMouse to handle their day-to-day operations. MemberMouse delivers the reliability and scalability necessary to handle thousands of customers without flinching. Our team has tested a million orders through the platform in a single day, and MemberMouse passed the test with flying colors.
"After spending 6 weeks evaluating different membership plugins (DAP, WishList, S2 Member, etc...), MemberMouse was a clear winner. I was able to get our site up and running in an afternoon. The level of documentation, support and functionality was much higher than competition. We've been using MemberMouse for 9 months and have no plans to switch. Additionally, hiring and working with a development team has been much easier thanks to documentation, their active support model and a sound architecture."
- Martin Wilson
"When we first started comparing membership solutions, we checked out all the usual suspects. We chose MemberMouse because it was designed to scale well for high volume merchants. It's well built, stable, and easy to use. The guys over at MemberMouse really know how develop software, and it shows. If you're serious about getting best-in-class technology for your business, I can't recommend MemberMouse enough."
- Tyler Sorensen
"After spending considerable time reviewing every membership plugin under the sun, and test driving the top contenders, we chose MemberMouse. The plugin is easy to use, the interface is very intuitive and the system has the flexibility we need. Their support is also among the best we’ve ever had from a software company. We’re very happy to recommend them."
- Laura Femino
"MemberMouse is a rock-solid membership platform. It's a breeze to integrate with WordPress, and the attention to detail is phenomenal. The 1-click upsell, save a sale, and cancellation processes are built specifically for high-volume direct response marketers, and I've never found them anywhere else. Customer support is first-class, and updates are released frequently. If you are looking for a Wordpress membership platform, choose MemberMouse, you'll be glad you did."
- Dan Caron
Our programmers have architected systems for Wal-Mart, British Airways, Sony Pictures, the Department of Defense, and Barnes and Noble. They're not marketers turned programmers, or guys who decided to outsource the development. They're in-house, enterprise-level system architects, not simply "developers" or "coders." That means you get unparalleled "mission critical" performance and reliability, which are crucial to keeping your business running like a well-oiled machine. Other solutions may fill a quick need, but if you're looking for an intelligent, comprehensive WordPress membership plugin that can scale with your business, look no further.
MemberMouse was designed from the ground up to be a blank canvas for any type of membership or subscription business. Because MemberMouse is built on WordPress, you can configure every aspect of your site, down to the checkout pages and customer self-service pages which your customers use to update their member details and billing information. WordPress is a mature, extremely stable and scalable platform that can get you up and running quickly. It's the most widespread and widely supported platform on the web. And it makes sense to build your business on it for a variety of reasons, including widespread access to themes, plugins and developers. MemberMouse gives you a feature-set that is designed to be flexible and takes many different "use cases" into account, so you're less likely to be backed into a corner as is often the case with other solutions.
MemberMouse is an "off the shelf" solution that gives you an easy way to deliver digital and physical subscription products, manage your customers, and grow your business. Why re-invent the wheel? MemberMouse takes care of all the common tasks associated with operating a subscription business, without the headache or financial risk of developing these functions in-house. Right out of the box, you get fully customizable checkout pages, a highly configurable password protected member's area, a "my account" page for customers to update their profile and billing details, and much more. The fact is, WordPress has become more than a blogging platform. It is a mature, stable, and feature rich framework that makes sense for almost every business. You could spend months and thousands of dollars on custom development, only to find it's not what you want. Or you could choose WordPress and MemberMouse and hit the ground with the easiest, most reliable, scalable membership platform available today.
MemberMouse is more than just a script to provide a password protected member's area. It's an enterprise-class WordPress membership plugin that tracks all of the critical metrics associated with a subscription business. Want to know your customer lifetime value? Want to know your retention rate? Want to know your refund rate? Without these numbers, it's impossible to make decisions, improve weakness, and intelligently scale your business. If you're not using data to drive your marketing decisions, if you're not paying attention to the numbers, then you're wandering in the dark. Sure, there are other membership plug-ins out there, but they don't come close to providing you with the direct response analytics that are absolutely key to growing your business.
Our competitors will shout from the hills that you only have to pay a one-time fee for their plugin. They'll proclaim that their software is "open source" and you can make all the changes you want to the code! The problem with this approach is that if you make changes to the structure of the application, you break the ability to upgrade the software. Which means, if you customize that plugin at all, there is a good chance you won't ever be able to upgrade your platform. With MemberMouse, we provide professional grade interfaces such as our API, Push Notification System, PHP Interface, and WordPress hooks. The entire purpose of these tools are to allow you to customize the platform, and adapt it to your business, without breaking future compatibility. That means, as we release new features and make improvements, you will always be able to benefit from these improvements, and won't be stuck with an antiquated, ever-aging code base. You won't find this level of architecture in any other WordPress membership plugin on the market.
MemberMouse has been designed to be easy to use. But that doesn't mean you won't need a helping hand from time to time. And that's why we've designed our entire support center to be video-based, so that you can see exactly how to use MemberMouse.
We've left no stone unturned, and every page of the application has a video associated it. Here's just one example video from our very comprehensive Support Center:
By using MemberMouse, you can also participate in a forward thinking community of business builders. The MemberMouse Community includes all current MemberMouse customers. Consider it a place to share tips and tricks, best practices, and success stories. We believe that there is tremendous value in building a community that can foster growth and provide ancillary support above and beyond our in-house customer support. The community is also a place to highlight bugs (they're few and far between, but we still like to squash them) and vote on feature requests. We take your feedback and your user experience seriously and will take your comments into consideration as we continue to improve the platform. You can find the community forums by visiting our Support Center, just look for the "General Discussion" link.

We've designed our pricing to be affordable for businesses of all sizes. If you're just getting started, the Starter Plan will get you off the ground quickly at a low monthly price. As your business scales and you require more powerful features, you can easily upgrade to one of our Advanced or Premium plans. Our recommend plan for most users is the $99/month Advanced Plan. Consider the fact that it only takes 5 members paying you $20 per month to subsidize a MemberMouse Advanced Plan. With pricing this friendly, you have no reason not to get started. And remember, all plans come with a 14-day free trial.
If you're a developer, you'll be able to crank out membership sites with ease using MemberMouse. Here are some of the features we think you will find relevant as a developer. If you're not a developer, don't let this scare you, just know MemberMouse has a lot of power under the hood if you need it.
MemberMouse comes with fully functional page templates out-of-the-box, but you're not locked into these templates. All of the functional elements are delivered via shortcodes and you can safely move items around, restyle them as you see fit which means you can create entirely custom layouts for even your most demanding clients and not have to worry about breaking anything.
Our shortcodes allow you to dynamically display content based on member attributes such as the "referring affiliate," "number of days as member," "products purchased," "membership level," and more. And with our PHP Interface you have access to all the power of our shortcodes within WordPress templates so you can build dynamic templates based on membership information without having to understand the inner-workings of MemberMouse.
MemberMouse supports dozens of sites with 50,000 users or more without ever breaking a sweat. Our developers have designed and built systems for Wal-Mart, Sony Pictures, British Airways, Barnes & Noble and more. Give your clients world-class solutions without breaking the bank.
shortcode example <p>Welcome, [MM_Member_Data name='firstName']!</p> <ul> <li>Membership Level: [MM_Member_Data name='membershipName']</li> <li>Days as Member: [MM_Member_Data name='daysAsMember'] days</li> </ul>
With our comprehensive support center, you can be sure that your decision to use MemberMouse is not only good for you, but for your clients as well. Plus, we have customer support personnel who are not only technical wizards, but also run their own online businesses.
Easily modify, add and remove code from core MemberMouse functionality without touching the core files. Other companies offer it as a benefit that you can modify their code but once you do this you can't receive any updates. Our approach gives you the flexibility you need, without breaking future upgrade ability.
There may be times when you want to perform an action when a common event occurs on your site. For example, you may want to update a 3rd party system when a member joins, or you may want to email a fulfillment warehouse when a particular product is purchased. With Push Notifications, you can create automated processes to handle all of your business routines. When a push notification event is triggered, you can send an email (which can include data about the member) or call a custom script to connect with another system's API (which can also include data about the member).
Answer: MemberMouse has a powerful import wizard that allows you migrate users from any 3rd party membership system or WordPress membership plugin. You simply upload a file that contains all of your member information including email, username, password, access rights, custom field data and more and the import wizard will create an account for each member in the file. The import wizard has built-in intelligence for migrating over from another WordPress plugin. MemberMouse seamlessly integrates with the WordPress user system so while processing the import file, if the user already exists in WordPress, MemberMouse will simply use the existing account and add on the specific member data. This means that following the import, all of your existing WordPress users will be valid MemberMouse members and still be able to login using their same exact username and password. To learn more about getting your users migrated to MemberMouse, watch the import wizard video in the Support Center.
Answer: Yes. Upgrading is easy. Simply login to this MemberMouse website with your username and password. Then, in your "My Account" section, you will find a link to upgrade or cancel your account. Unlike many of our competitors, we use our own software to run our business. So when you upgrade your account, you're using MemberMouse to change membership levels, just like you could have your own customers do when they want to upgrade membership levels.
Answer: The plugin runs on your own server, just like any other WordPress membership plugin. We have a licensing server that the plugin checks-in with to verify that your account is active. If for any reason our licensing server goes down temporarily, your plugin will still function properly. We understand that uptime is critical to high volume businesses, and you can sleep soundly knowing that we have contingency plans in place to handle any potential downtime on our end.
Answer: The code behind MemberMouse conforms to the highest standards for WordPress plugin development, and will always function correctly with other well-written plugins and themes. However, if you're running a ton of plugins or using a theme created by an inexperienced developer, there maybe times when you notice that something is not working quite the way it should. The reason for this is almost always a plugin written by a less experienced developer, who is not following WordPress development best practices. If you notice errant behavior, simply disable all of your plugins (besides MemberMouse), and enable them one by one, until you find the plugin that is causing the conflict. MemberMouse is continually updated so that it always functions with the latest version of WordPress.
Answer: We have a group of qualified contractors than can help you with your website. Developing MemberMouse is our top priority, we still have a number of features that we want to implement, and we will always be focused on improving the platform, so our in-house team is not available for development services. Although, we are willing to have discussions with your outside developer or one of our qualified contractors on how to implement and extend MemberMouse to suit your needs.
Answer: If you are considering an Advanced Plan or above, and have additional questions that have not been addressed on this page, you can email our support queue with the subject line: "Advanced Plan Inquiry," and we'll address your pre-sales questions as soon as possible. In many cases, looking at our Integration, API and Push Notification documentation in detail will give you the answers you need.
Answer: While we try to outline all of the functionality of MemberMouse on this site, the easiest way to determine if MemberMouse will serve your purposes is to sign up for the 14-Day Free Trial and try it out for yourself. Once you see how MemberMouse can be adapted to your business, your implementation questions will answer themselves. All of the major functionality is provided in the Free Trial, and we're quite confident you'll see how easy and flexible the platform is. If you still have a specific question about functionality, please email us.
