The members area is where all the fun starts. This is where all your subscribers can access your content, receive special offers, and engage with your brand. Setting up a members area on your website isn’t easy, but it’s worth it. Here’s how you can do it on ClickFunnels.
Create a Subscription Form
Before you can create a members area you need to set up a subscription form. A subscription form is a way for users to sign up for your newsletter or to be notified of new information and products. You can do this on your WordPress site with a simple form that captures their email address. You can use the same form to accept payments as well. This way customers can subscribe to your newsletter and/or make purchases without leaving your site.
Create a Funnel
Now that you have a way for users to sign up for your newsletter or to make purchases, you can start creating a funnel. A funnel is a series of steps that leads to a goal. For example, you could have the option to leave the site and get a free ebook or you could have the option to purchase a service to create a professional-looking blog. When a user chooses one of the options in the funnel, the system moves them through the next step in the funnel.
Design the Member Area
Once you have a funnel you can start designing the member area. There are a few different ways that you can design your members area. You can have a full-blown blog with a beautiful design or you can have a stripped-down area with just a small banner at the top. It really depends on the type of content that you have. Are you focusing more on products that users can click on and learn more about, or are you more focused on having a beautiful design that draws people in?
Set Up the Navigation
It’s important to have a clean and easy-to-use navigation that guides your users around your site. This navigation should take them from the home page to the different parts of your site, as well as back again. It’s important to keep in mind the overall flow of your site and the goal of each area. For example, if you’re trying to sell a product and you have a blog post about that product, having a link from the home page to the product post might not make much sense because the product post is actually part of the funnels. However, having a link from the home page to the blog’s general page makes sense because the blog page is about giving helpful information and the product post isn’t. This way, when users click on the home page, they will see a clean and easy-to-use navigation that takes them straight to the parts of your website that they need.
Add An Element Of Personalization
One of the things that makes a difference between a simple site and a high-quality site is the personalization that goes into the user experience. When users visit your site, you should already have their email address. You can use this to “fetch” personal information, such as their name, email address, and shipping address. You can use this information to send them special deals and promotions that are tailored to them.
Add An About Me Box
An about me box is a section of your site that allows users to provide additional information about themselves. An about me box can be a great place for your users to provide their contact information, a biography, or any other information that could help someone find them. This information should be concise, yet comprehensive enough for someone interested in your product or service to find it.
Depending on the type of product that you have, you might also want to have a FAQ section. A FAQ section answers frequently asked questions about your product or service. It can also be a place to explain any details that might be unclear in the text of your document or web page. This is important because while some people might think that they understand what they’re purchasing, there are always details that they might miss out on.
Add A Product Listing Box
Every product that you sell should have its own listing box on your site. A product listing box is a spot where buyers can find all the relevant information about your product. You can use this information to promote the product on your site and social media platforms, as well as in email campaigns.
You might also want to have a service listing box for similar reasons. A service listing box provides customers with information about your service, its pricing, and any other relevant details.
Create Special Offers
Users enjoy receiving special offers. If you have a specific product or service that you think that your customers will love, create a special offer just for them. You can use special offers to get people to subscribe to your newsletter, make a purchase, or enter a competition.
Make Sure Everything Is Edited For Global
When publishing your website, make sure that you edit everything so that it’s compatible with all global users. This means that you will need to check the spelling, grammar, and the overall tone of your content. When you edit your content for global use, you will also need to ensure that it’s suitable for worldwide use. This might mean that you need to ask a friend to help proofread the content or that you need to hire a professional editor.
Getting a website that looks great and functions properly is important. However, above all else, you want to create a user experience that is enjoyable. This means that you should focus on making the task of finding information easy, while ensuring that the overall look and feel of your site is engaging. With a little bit of luck, your efforts will pay off and you will have a loyal audience that continues to grow. Even if you do end up with just a few subscribers at first, you can still consider yourself to be a successful blogger.
