How to pick an idea for your membership program

so how do you pick a membership idea and
run with it and validate it this is something that I get asked a lot and
that very often get people stuck into the I would love to have a
membership I'd have no idea what it looks like so let me give you a hint
there are actually two situations here the first one is you already have an
audience so you have a client base maybe you've sold a one-on-one coaching
group coaching an online course you've done a retweet an event workshops
basically you have a tribe already of people and you've already identified the
struggle that they have okay and maybe even better you've already helped them
they've already purchased something from you if that is the case a great way to
pick an idea is to first look at the ideas that you have that you would love
to build a community around but also to talk to these people talk to them and
find out if that's something they would be interested in and what that would
look like would that be a community would that be support would that be
accountability would that be extra content or maybe you are in this situation where
you don't have an audience yet or you have an audience but it's your list or
your followers and you're not exactly sure how you can support them and what
that would look like so if that is the case what you want to do is you want to
start building and interestly so you want to start interacting with people on
the idea so that you can really gather a list of people that are interested in
this topic so that you can keep you know you can start nurturing them on that
topic and and survey them and ask them you know about ideas and get them
involved into shaping that membership idea what that could look like of course
you want it to fit your business and you're probably doing this because you
want to scale maybe you want to work a little bit less you want to create
recurring revenues and you want to scale and maybe get some free time back but
you also want to make sure that it fits your audience right so you either have
the audience or you're gonna build your audience between any case you really need to
build an interest list from that people that are raising their hand
and now saying yes I am interested please tell me more okay because I can
tell you one thing if you are not able to build a waiting list you sure are not
gonna be able to sell it to them right so I hope you found this useful if you

How to add a Cookie Notification to your WordPress Site

Hi Nathalie Dorémieux here and in this video I am going to show you how to quickly and easily add a cookie notification on your wordpress site so first you are going to go to your wordpress dashboards and go to plugins and click on add new and then we are going to search for cookie consent and we are going to use this plugins called cookie consent from catapult themes you are going to click on install now and then activate once it's activated you go to settings cookie consent and here you are going to see some of the setups so you can choose if the section is going to be close on the click of a button on scrool or if it's time so if you choose timed then you can set the duration here on how many seconds you want it to show you can choose to have a display on the first page only exclude some pages exclude some zones set the expiration of the cookie and then save changes the second tab is the content tab and that's where you are going to choose the text that you want to display so here I am going to say this site uses cookie by using this site you accept our cookie policy as described in our privacy policy and then you have a button and then you can choose what you want the link to be named so I have found out more it's linking to a cookie policy page that has the actual policy or you can choose to link it to an outside extandal link open in a new tab and this is the label of the button to actually close so we saved changes and then the last tab is the styling this is where you are going to decide where it displays the colors of the text of the background and everything so here I have put it at the bottom you can put like a CSS class if you want to style it but you can choose basically the text color background color the link color button color etc and you can even use the X if you prefere that they close with the X sign so once you have done that basically visit the site and then you can see these bars show up at the bottom si it's going to stay there until I close it because I chose to hide it on click so I can click here to find out more and go directly to the cookie policy file or I can click on close to just close the window like this I hope it's helpful and I will catch you next time

How to keep your members longer inside your membership retention strategy #2

retention strategy tip number two so
one of the ways that you can help get your members stay longer inside your
membership is to provide what we call a monthly round up email and that round up
email is probably something you might have seen if you belong to some popular
memberships what it does the purpose of this email is really to let all members
know what's been going on in the last week or months inside the membership so
this is where you can put Quick Links to threats in the Facebook group or in the
forum if you have a forum it's also the place where you can share the content
that has been dripped that month so what this is going to achieve is that for
people that are members but that haven't really interacted in the past months in
one email you give them shortcuts and Quick Links to click and right away get
back into the membership and start engaging so this is going to really make
members feel like they are not missing out because you are giving them like the
juiciest the best off of the month and you can even choose to have like a
monthly member like a member of the month if you'd like and then showcase
someone that has been particularly engaging or supportive for other members
so this monthly email or even weekly email is a great way to keep your member
engaged and therefore to return them inside your membership longer if you

amazing onboarding experience for your members when they join your membership

want to make sure that your members really feel welcome and there are number
of ways that you can do this the first tip here in this video and I'm
going to share with you is how you can create a great onboarding experience so
one way that you can do this is create a welcome video that is basically going to
be a tour of your platform it's going to show them where the content is if you
have content that's being dripped when it is being dripped if it's going to be live
and when and where and where they're going to be able to watch the replay you
can also talk about how they can get support where they should go if you have
a community this is the time where you want to tell them things that they need
to do right now so maybe it's filling out their profile maybe it's joining the
Facebook group and introducing themselves so what are the things that
you want ideally you remember to do once they join just to make sure that they
really feel welcome and integrated into the community so I hope you enjoyed this

Membership Site Boost Engagement with Conversations public & private

I am Nathalie Dorémieux and in this
video I am going to show you how to boost engagement in your online courses
your membership site and provide stellar support to your students members
one-on-one clients and the way you're going to do this is with what we call
conversations so conversations are modules like this one like the one you
can see here on the screen basically you can add a conversation module to any
page on any online course any membership site that you have and what it does
it allows members to communicate with each other so that they can
interact with each other answer each other questions they can pair for
accountability they can talk about the actual lesson and questions that they
have but they can also ask you a question you the admin the instructor of
the course and you will be notified by email so that is the first type of
conversations that are actually public so anybody that has access to the page
can see everybody's questions can answer anybody okay and then there is the
second kind of conversation which is more for your one-on-one clients so if
you are coach and you want to provide that a private area for your members
where they can have this conversation with you they can ask you questions you
reply it shows up in the member area then you can also use the private
conversations for that and if you pair it with our Dropbox share feature where
you can basically link a Dropbox folder / one-on-one client then you can share
with them resources call replays and things like that just by drag and
dropping the file in their Dropbox folder right you can also allow them to
upload content so they can upload homework any types of files videos that
you would like to allow them to send to you and then you can be notified so it's
a great way to build a strong relationship with your clients throught the
member area but it's also a great way when you
use it as a public for the community to engage with each other to provide
support to each other and also to get access to you for any questions another
cool feature of the conversations is that you can archive a conversation so
if the conversation becomes obsolete or you want to not have it in the main feed
you just can click on archive if you're an admin you can archive everything if
not then you can only archive your own questions basically you can delete your
questions if you don't want it to show up anymore if you go to archives of
course you'll see what's been archived so it's not deleted but what also you
can do is download the whole slide so you have the option to download the
whole conversation as a text file so that you can save it on your computer
and you can basically keep that for your record so as you can see conversations
are a great way to boost engagement for your students your members but also to
provide a great experience for your one-on-one clients and build a strong
relationship with them through the membership site

Styling Your Custom Divi Modules and using Global Elements

so in this video I'm going to show you how to use the global elements in TV and how to style the vertical menu so here I have a menu that I want to be able to reuse in a different course so what I'm going to do is I'm going to edit this page in a new tab and then you can see that this is a global element because it's green okay so I'm going to right click and disable global because that's the menu that you will get by default when you create a menu okay so the way you start on menu is you click on those three resort online and so once it opens you can see here what many weights linked to but we want to go to the design tab and this is where you're gonna have the different colors so you're gonna have the active link color so that's the text color the drop-down menu color so you can play with all these colors but what's important is here the spacing so the margin here is what's going to give you the white space between the different menus so it's in the margin menu item spacing and here is the padding bottom top and left for the little padding on the so this is the padding inside the menu item okay so a little bit of padding on the top a little bit on the bottom so here a little bit on the top here on the bottom here and the tenth person is four here and the 4px is four right here okay so you can play with these numbers and see what it does okay so this is the completed module checkbox when somebody has completed the module so you can choose the background color and the color of the checkbox when it's completed okay so that's where all nothing is completed here but that's where you'll see a checkbox right here okay so once you have set it up the way you want then you click on save and add to library and you're going to give it a name so I'm going to call it course 1 menu and you make it a global item okay so that means that you're going to be able to reuse that element and if you modify it in one of the modules it's going to modify everywhere say you want to change the color okay then what you want to do is if you're going to a different course right and you want to use the same menu style but then you want to tweak it slightly maybe just change one color or something like that okay so now we're going to come here and we're going to edit this page and we're going to want to use that same menu and then tweak it so that it it's linked to the right menu but we want to start with the same design right we don't want to do this we do the spacing and stuff like that so what we're going to do are going to remove that menu so you're going to go insert module you're going to go to add from library and then you're going to click on course 1 menu which is the one I created you see it's in green and then of course this course 1 menu is is is linked to the other menu so I don't want to modify that right because it's global so now that I've made a copy I'm going to disable global so now that means I have made a copy okay so now I can open it and I can link it to something else I can even give it coaching menu right or cause to menu right so in that case here I'm going to just gonna coach coachy menu and and then in the design I can go in and I can change the colors if I want to right so if you want to have different colors for different courses for example you can but otherwise that's all you have to do so I would if you're gonna have multiple if you're gonna have many you multiple pages so I would save it to the library as well just so that if you need to modify it and you have 20 modules you only modify it in one place right coaching menu boom okay and your update it should actually look similar to what we had okay but that's basically how you take something well it looks a bit different how you take something you make it a global so you can you can reuse it but you can also use that to make a copy and then make it on global and then tweak it further for for this specific course okay so I hope that was helpful and this is how you customize the menu and how you use the global elements in DV
