We’re often asked to provide a comparison between CustomerHub and Memberium for people who are either considering their first membership site, or considering upgrading from CustomerHub. CustomerHub provides an easy to use, entry level solution that is managed for you and hosted by Infusionsoft, which makes it a popular choice for people getting their toes wet in the membership and subscription space.
We’re big fans of Infusionsoft, and CustomerHub is a great system to start out with if your branding isn’t a priority, if your needs are simple and you only need a single site.
Both products share the common core feature sets of being designed to work exclusively with Infusionsoft, providing a tailored experience where all parts of your system utilize the same language and systems. Both systems use tags, actionsets and the same contact fields to provide a customized experience for your clients. Memberium can use the same tags, and the same password assigned to your CustomerHub users to make the transition painless.

CustomerHub costs $79/month.
Memberium costs $47/month, with a 17% discount for annual payment.
You can review the feature sets of both platforms on our respective websites. You can find the CustomerHub feature list here, and the Memberium feature list here. You’ll notice an enormous disparity in the breath and depth of features and functions between the two platforms.
- Each additional site costs extra
- The theming controls are very limited and you can only use the canned look and feel
- You have to use an unbranded domain like “xyz1234.customerhub.com”
- Lack of sophisticated design
- There is no integration with 3rd party tools
- Hosted centrally in the United States, slower if your audience is international
Why Choose Memberium
Memberium provides you the freedom and capability to manage and own your customer experience. Memberium is built on industry standard tools like WordPress, which powers 25% of the web, which means you have a steady supply of talent and know-how that you can apply to your site.
You can also host Memberium locally on your regional web host, ensuring that your clients will get the best possible speeds and user experience.
Why Choose CustomerHub
While it’s more expensive, CustomerHub provides a simple, all-inclusive service which includes your hosting, and your app all in one. If you’re not ready to run your own WordPress site, or only have minimal needs, CustomerHub is a great solution. Upgrading from CustomerHub to Memberium is a snap as well, making CustomerHub a low risk choice for you.
Upgrading From CustomerHub
If and when you do outgrow CustomerHub, you can migrate your site by copy/pasting and rehosting your content onto your own WordPress site. Your users will come across cleanly and easily and will not require new passwords or usernames, and you can use all the same tagging as you did with CustomerHub. Memberium also supports Partials, so the strategies you learn for managing content on CustomerHub can be re-used in your Memberium system as well.

You can also integrate page builders like LeadPages and OptimizePress which give you professional looking, well designed lead capture and sales pages.

Complete Facebook Integration
– Memberium provides support out-of-the box for Facebook widgets, including like and share widgets.
