What's the most important element when it comes to creating content for your membership site?

Many membership site owners might say, 'Creating lots of content'.

Well, they'd be wrong.

You don't need to create a ton of content for your membership site. In fact, that's a great way to overwhelm your members and drive them away running and screaming!

What you need to create is value. You need to over-deliver in terms of results.

In this video I'll share with you a quick exercise you can complete to plan out ALL of your Membership Site's content easily (and without a computer)...

This guide was made to show you how to protect your downloadable content using Memberium and Amazon S3. The benefit of this setup includes expiring links so members can’t share download links with non-members and a possible performance increase by offloading file storage to S3 rather than your WordPress site.

What You’ll Need

  • Amazon S3 Account
  • Memberium Plugin

Getting Your S3 Access Keys

The video below will show you how to generate and access your Amazon S3 Access and Secret keys.

Setting File Permissions

Below you’ll see a demonstration of how to make sure your S3 files aren’t public. The key is to remove all permissions for the “Everyone” group. You’ll also want note down the path to the file. In my example, the bucket is ‘lesson523’ and the file name is ‘lesson1.pdf’

Configuring Memberium

In WordPress, navigate to Memberium>>Remote Files and fill in the details we just acquired. The Profile name will be used in Memberium shortcodes to reference back to this S3 account. The Default Host is usually “s3.amazonaws.com” and the Expiration can be set to 30. The other details will be specific to your S3 account.

Setting up Shortcodes:

We have various shortcodes that hook into the S3 integration, but for this guide we’re focusing on downloads so we’ll use the [memb_s3_link] shortcode.

Example linking to the file shown in the second step:

<a [memb_s3_link htmlattr=href profile=”test” object=”lesson1.pdf”] > Download Lesson 1 </a>

You can add other HTML attributes to the text or even use an image that links to the file. Once the user clicks on that link, the expiration countdown will start. If you chose 30, as was recommended above, then after 30 seconds the link will stop working so if it was shared it would expire likely before the recipient would be able to access it.

That’s it!

Memberium has long provided support at the developer level for multi-language support.

With the 2.51 release, we now provide an easy to use GUI for adding and updating translations.

To turn on this feature, go to Memberium -> Settings -> Page Handling, and turn “Multi-Language Support”. When this option is turned on, a new “Language” tab is enabled in the Memberium Settings screen. You can use this tab to set your translations.

The standout feature of our multi-languages support is that it’s designed for a global economy where you can provide content and services across more than just one language. For site owners who choose to provide multiple translations, Memberium will select the best translation for each visitor.
