you noticed that more and more smart marketers
are setting up membership sites that are free to
These free membership sites offer
a powerful way to build a mailing list, because
visitors prefer them to other free offers, such
as ebooks or software tools.
This translates directly into a higher visitor sign-up rate
- meaning more subscribers - and more profits!
Membership sites are also a great place for ads and
special offers, with much higher conversion rates than
ads placed on ordinary web pages.
And if new items are added regularly, membership
sites can provide a powerful incentive to keep people
subscribed to a mailing list.
It's not hard to see why free membership
sites have become so popular.
But if you've ever considered setting up your own free
membership site, you've probably discovered the HUGE
problems with them...
The membership scripts are usually difficult to set up -
and they can cost a small fortune.
But now there's a brand new solution that solves
With our superb Memberactive, I guarantee that you
can have your own free membership site up and running within
minutes from now.
And you're going to be amazed at the low cost of
Memberactive - and the powerful features it
Up Your Members Area In Minutes
To set up your membership site, you start with
your "members area". This is basically just a small website -
i.e. a set of ordinary HTML web pages, linked together.
You need a home page, called index.html, and you
can have as many additional pages as you want.
To make it easier to get started, the script comes with a
standard set of pages, which are all linked together:
- A home page
- A downloads page
- A training page
- A special offers page
- A "contact us" page
- A logout page
You can see this set of pages here (opens in a new browser window).
You can modify these pages using any HTML editor, change
the name/purpose of any page - and add/delete pages as
You don't need to use these pages at all. You can create
your own pages if you prefer. But using these pages allows you
to get your membership site set up very quickly.
You can include anything you want on your pages,
including download links, graphics, ads and links to
other pages (inside or outside the members area).
You can customize your members area for each
member, by including "special text" on the pages. For
example the special text %%name%% is replaced with
the member's name.
This special text is already included in appropriate places
in the standard pages. There are also full instructions with
the software, to allow you to create your own pages.
Memberactive will automatically protect all your
pages, so they can only be accessed by people who are logged
in to your members area.
Once you have your web pages, you run the
simple Memberactive script setup tool, shown in
the screenshot below:

Instantly Set Up Your Squeeze Page
To operate your mailing list, you need an autoresponder
service or script. You can use any autoresponder with
As well as a members area, your free membership site
needs a "squeeze page".
This is just an ordinary HTML web page that you can
design with any HTML editor.
The page should describe the benefits of joining your
membership site and include a special sign-up form, where
visitors can enter their name and email address, in order to
get a free membership.
When visitors enter their details, they will be subscribed
to your autoresponder - and get a free membership as well.
Here's a quick summary of how this works (this example is
for a double-optin autoresponder, but you can use a
single-optin autoresponder if required).
1. A visitor enters his or her name and email address
into the special sign-up form. The details are captured by
your autoresponder and also stored by the membership
2. The autoresponder sends the person a confirmation
3. The person clicks the link in that email to confirm
their subscription to your mailing list
4. When the person clicks the confirmation link, they are
sent to a "special page" that is part of the
Memberactive script. The script creates their
membership (using the name and email address stored in step
1), displays ther login user ID and password - and also emails
the ID and password to the person.
5. The person then logs in to your members area
You'll see that the person enters their details just
once - and those details are used both to subscribe the person
to your autoresponder and to create the person's
You'll also notice that the person is forced to confirm
their subscription before their membership is created.
At the end of this process, your have a confirmed
subscriber on your mailing list - and a new member of your
The key to making this work is the
"special" sign-up form on your squeeze page.
To create this special sign-up form, you first generate an
ordinary sign-up form for your autoresponder, in the
You then modify the form using the Memberactive
Autoresponder Form Tool, as shown below:
