You've already seen how the
standard version of Memberactive offers an easy way
to set up a free-to-join membership site.
A free-to-join site allows you to
build a list and to generate income through offers and ads
inside your members area.
But if you really want to take
your list building and income-generation to the next level,
you need to combine your free-to-join site with a paid upgrade
And that means you need our superb Memberactive
Memberactive Gold is specially designed to
operate "freemium" sites.
With a freemium site, your members join free as "Silver"
members, just like they do for the standard version of
But they can then choose to pay a one-off fee to upgrade to
Gold membership, which includes additional downloads.
The Gold upgrade can optionally be offered at a discount
through a one-time-offer, shown when each member
logs in for the first time. Members can either take the
one-time-offer to save money, or they can upgrade later at a
Use of a one-time-offer has proven an effective way to
force people to take action, substantially boosting sales.
Indeed, the whole freemium membership model has proved to
be a very popular and powerful way to build an online
You get lots of subscribers - and can generate a
lucrative income from the Gold upgrades.
But the real power of the freemium model comes
from combining it with an affiliate program, using an
affiliate script or a service like Clickbank.
Affiliates can drive traffic to your site in order to earn
commission on the Gold upgrades - and as a result, they build
your list for you on autopilot.
This is probably the single most effective list
building solution on the Internet.
This solution has been used by many of the top
marketers to build truly massive lists.
Many of these top marketers hired programmers costing
thousands of dollars, to do custom programming work.
That's because, until now, there was no off-the-shelf
software specifically designed to operate freemium
But now with Memberactive Gold,
you can build your own lucrative freemium
sites, quickly, easily and at a tiny fraction of the cost of
Your Members Area With Different Pages For Silver/Gold
Your members area is set up in exactly the same way as
for the standard version of Memberactive.
A standard set of HTML pages is supplied. You can use these
pages as-is, or modify them using any HTML editor, or create
your own web pages for the members area.
By default, the same pages are shown to both Silver and
But you can create a special "gold" version of any web
page, simply by creating a new page with "_gold" on the end of
the page name.
For example, the gold version
of training.html would be called
Silver members will see the standard version of the page,
while Gold members will see the gold version.
All members will see the web address
as training.html, but for Gold members, the
contents of training_gold.html will be shown.
Silver members will be blocked from accessing the contents
of training_gold.html, even if they guess the name of
This solution gives you an easy way to deliver
different content for Gold members.
For example, the Silver version of the training page could
just be an ad showing the content available to Gold members,
with a link to order the Gold upgrade. The Gold version of the
training page would then provide download links for the
Using special gold pages is entirely optional. You can
create a gold version for some of your pages, all your pages
or none of your pages.
Add Protected Silver And Gold Downloads To Your
The standard version of Memberactive has
a solution called the "Zip List folder", which offers an easy
way to add downloads to your members area.
Memberactive Gold has two Zip List folders -
one for Silver and one for Gold. Zip files added to the Silver
folder are visible to all members, while zip files added to
the Gold folder are only shown to Gold members.
You can also manually add download links to any page in the
members area - with additional links on the special gold
versions of your pages.
All the zip files in your members area are protected
automatically, so they can only be accessed by someone logged
in to your members area.
This protection is applied automatically, both for
files in the Zip List folders and for any ordinary download
links that you manually add to any of your members area
In addition, all downloads for Gold members are protected,
so Silver members cannot download them, even if they guess the
Add Your Gold Upgrade Offer
When Memberactive Gold is used to operate a
freemium site, the script works exactly the same as for the
You set up a squeeze page in exactly the same way and
members join in the same way.
To offer an upgrade to Gold, you just create a normal HTML
sales page, describing the additional items available to Gold
members, with a payment button.
Your members area will contain ads asking members to
upgrade to Gold, with a link to your upgrade sales page.
When members pay, their memberships will be instantly and
You can choose to be emailed by the script every
time a member is upgraded, so you can keep an eye on
Add A One-Time-Offer
You can use the built-in one-time-offer feature to
offer Gold upgrades at a discounted price - or to offer
anything else you want.
Just create a normal HTML sales page, describing the
one-time-offer and upload it to the same folder as the
If your offer is for a discounted price Gold upgrade,
your one-time-offer page will be almost identical to your
ordinary Gold sales page (it will just have a different price
and payment button).
When each member logs in for the first time, they will see
the one-time-offer page. Once a member has seen the
offer, there is no way for them to ever access the page
With All Payment Services And Affiliate
You can use any payment services to sell
your upgrades and one-time-offers.
You can also use any affiliate script or a service
like Clickbank, to add an affiliate program to your

The admin feature is very easy to use, giving you
total control of your membership site.

Gold to set up an unlimited number

the buyer purchases their own copy of the
