Just because someone can design a nice looking website doesn’t mean they have the experience to develop an effective online courses and membership sites are more than pretty faces. They are very specialized content management systems that require lots of preplanning and decision making before the site is begun. See this article about some of the key questions to consider when you create your site.
A membership site is a “system” made up of multiple applications (made by different people) and services (payment processors, autoresponders, etc.) that all must work together. In addition you have many decisions to make before the shovel hits the ground. Someone who doesn’t do this regularly doesn’t now the questions, advantages, and tradeoffs of all the variables that make up this unique type of website.
The most common complaints we hear at WishList Master sound like this:
My web designer has created some nice looking websites but seems lost when it comes to making my online course work properly.
My developer started out strong but now I have no idea what’s going on.
My web designer seems to have disappeared. I haven’t heard from them for weeks.
My overseas developer doesn’t speak very good English and doesn’t seem to understand what I need.
The web guy said he could figure out WishList Member but the site is a mess.
A family friend (nephew, neighbor, seemingly knowledgeable geeky person…take your pick) said they could build my site cheap and they’re stuck.
