I recently began working with a brand new WordPress template created by “The Internet Genius”, Ben Cope called Stardust Theme and love it! In fact, we are currently using it for 3 different clients. Since each client has a very different business sensibility it is imperative that we work with templates that are very easy to customize to the clients needs without looking like we are just using the same template over and over again.
Take a look at MelanieJWilliams.com. This site is not completely done, but will give you an idea of just how lovely this template is.

When laying out the plan for your WordPress platform website you may want to consider creating a membership site meaning that you are providing valuable and needed content to paying customers each month. Quite literally a membership site means that you sign up readers to pay a monthly subscription fee. Your members will receive coaching, teaching, business tips, audios, videos, downloads or anything else that your particular niche can provide. We strongly recommend using WP Wishlist which is a very affordable and incredibly powerful WordPress plugin. Popular features include Total Content Protection, Sequential Content Delivery, Easy Member Management and much more.
WishList Products Interview Series
Special guest Philip Mutrie talks about how WP WishList helped him grow his optin list to 12,000 people. That all by itself makes it worth listening to but of course they covered other very important topics such as some powerful ways to increase interaction with your members, why creating “sub-groups” can increase member loyalty, why not accepting everyone can improve your membership and lastly, they discuss the 2 step registration process. Click here to listen to interview and then decide if a membership site is the perfect solution for your online business.
We recommend GoDaddy for domain name purchases but don’t really like hosting WordPress sites with them. We find that they put way too many sites on one server which means bottlenecks and slow loading pages. We now host all WordPress sites on HostGator and have been very happy with the results.

My clients needs fully functioning membership sites and together we have run the gamut from Moodle to iGrOOPs and everything in between, including Ning which is a nice free community site, but just doesn’t have the functionality that we needed.
Eventually I landed on WP Wishlist and life become much easier. We have launched this software for many client websites and as it is easily integrated with 1shoppingcart, our clients have a powerful membership site up and running in short order.
Chris Garrett, a high profile blogger, was recently interviewed by the developers of WP Wishlist on how he has developed several membership sites using WordPress. The whole interview is available here.

If, like me, you like using WordPress for your website/blog, then you’ll love the resource that I recently began using for my web development clients which is aptly named Wishlist. In fact, I will go a step further and say that I am an ardent WordPress Platform fan for way too many reasons to list here.
Many people have tried to turn WordPress into a membership site but in the past it’s been quite tricky. There are some fabulous WordPress plugins out there but to build a membership site you have to “tweak this”, and “tweak that” and if you aren’t technical, it quickly becomes quite frustrating. That’s why I was so excited when I came across WishList Member. I have installed it on several client websites and am now installing it on several of my own business sites. Wishlist is a membership solution that was built specifically for WordPress.
The best part is, it has all the features you would want in a membership solution AND it is compatible with all of your other favorite plugins! So you get the best of both worlds. Plus, they’ve added some very cool features to make running and managing a membership site a whole lot easier. As a Web Developer one of the things that I appreciate the most is the customer support and the support videos.
Like I said, if you like using WordPress, then you’ll love WishList Member.
