Which should you have…
There’s a lot of talk at the moment about online courses and membership sites, but the 2 terms seem to have got confused in the middle somewhere. So let’s get things clear…
A private area on your website which people need a username and password to access.
A series of information to teach someone something. This can be drip fed, meaning delivered over a period of time.
Note: A course can live within a membership site, but doesn’t have to. And a membership site can contain courses, but doesn’t have to…
Kinda like the grass is green, but all that is green is not grass – right?!
So which should you have?
Well a membership site is perfect if you have lots of information to give. This information could come in different formats, styles and designed for people at different stages.
A course is perfect if you have specific series of information to teach someone and it needs to be taught in a certain order.
A course doesn’t have to live within a membership site. It can be delivered by email, by phone, webinar or even face to face.
So, what are you using? Or thinking of using?
