Subscription plans on your website should work on different levels. With the ARMember content restriction, you can now have complete autonomy over content access on your website, depending on user roles and subscriptions.
The key factor in all membership plugin is to ensure each of your subscribers gets value for money. Well, if you build a platform that employs content control, you will be able to select who gets to see what, and when.
What you get
Content restriction with ARMember is about getting as many features as possible, with the aim of giving you more control over the content you put out there.
- First, you get a platform that is based, upon your specific instructions, on levels. If say you have membership from signs ups to premium memberships, then your content can be mapped based on levels. This means that you can have custom-made messages and re-directed logins for people who don’t have the necessary permissions to view certain content.
- Once you’ve pegged each user role, this plugin allows you to restrict access to posts, pages, and tags, making it impossible for users to view your content without the proper authorization
- Different users also get different access to different pages and content. You can also use a kind of reward system where you allow normal user logins the chance to win addons if they sign up for premium membership.
- Widgets, sidebars, footers, all these can be issued with control-visibility. In which case different user levels can access different levels of content.
- Why go for content restriction?
- Building a membership site allows you to come up with a more closely knit community. You have users who appreciate your content, and they constantly sign up and pay for the service you deliver.
- Content restriction works as kind of a reward in the sense that not everyone can log in and access your content. It encourages a more personalized engagement with your users, and, most importantly, content restriction works to create a platform of trust, where the higher the membership level, the more access you get to premium content.
- You don’t just get to choose content on a whim, content restriction is actually a good way to have a clear view of how your site is performing, and you get to differentiate between loyal logins, disgruntled sign-ups and people who are genuinely interested in your content.
- Lastly, content restriction is the best way to monetize your site. This is because it allows you to save all your best content for paid membership, restricting access to a level where only paid logins are taken seriously. This prevents your website from being flooded with window-shoppers.
The hard questions
You have to understand that content restriction here won’t be as effective if your content isn’t differentiated. The potential advantage gained by access to your content must have some quantifiable financial value.
This indicates that what your users gain from your content should have value enough to match the money they pay to get this information. This also means that if you are set up in a way that the higher up the proverbial member ‘food chain”, the better the access you get to quality content. So what are these hard questions?
- As much as you want to make your content exclusive, is there someone else out there who is offering the same content without charge?
- Does the quality of your content justify the monthly fees people are willing to pay for it?
- Is there quantifiable value for money?
- Content restriction varies, so you need to have a clear understanding of your industry needs to be able to carefully craft your content. This feature is all about creating a feeling of exclusivity for paid members, so they get to feel like part of the family.
Also note, that although you want your users to feel exclusive and well taken care of, you also need to make new, potential sign-ups feel welcome, and to feel like they would want in on the action. You need an action plan that not only keeps your already existing users happy but also encourages anyone who comes across your site to want in on the action.
