Our Story 1

Once upon a time, there was this guy who wanted to set up a membership site and thought he could get it done in an hour or so….  Boy was he ever wrong.  After three weeks of trying out every piece of membership software available at the time and spending over 140 hours on the two project, he finally had a membership site set up.  But it was far from perfect.

Going forward, the same guy started building more and more membership sites because let’s face it, they are the best way to keep customers there is.  But he still had to use other people software, all of which left something to be desired.  So fast forward 7 years later as he decided to get over the frustrations of using other people’s software and instead, building something that he knew he needed and felt that other people would as well.

Membership Platform was built for us to use on our own membership sites and ones that we set up for our clients. Our team has worked on lots and lots of WordPress sites and membership sites for people all around the world for quite a few years now.  We needed a membership plugin that had to work and not get hung up.  We did not want to just create a good one, we wanted to set the standard for Membership Software and Membership Training.

But, before we got there though, I have to tell you that the only reason we ended up building Membership Platform was simply because I was forced to work with all of the crappy, horrible, pieces of membership software out there.  I was a total newbie and I really wanted to get my membership site up and running quickly. Well, was I ever in for a surprise.  They were not easy to use, they were expensive, they broke a lot, and it was not fun. But, as bad as they were, I was grateful because the light bulbs went off as to how really powerful Membership and Continuity Programs truly are.  So, I persevered and finally got my first site up and running one month of 10 hour days later.  Out of this I knew that that there was a better way to do this and one day I would put together software that did everything that I wanted easily.  So, I have to give a big thanks to the many, many junky membership programs that I was forced to use and that surprisingly enough are still out there!  Thank  you!
