If you already have an active site and community, usually the best way forward to revenue is to encourage supporters to donate. While just asking for donations can work wonderfully (we've helped single site owners raise $100K to $200K/year just on donations), it works even better if you create a membership community with some benefits to those who support or join.
If you are creating a business from scratch, membership is a great way to generate revenue right from the beginning.
Our full paywall/membership solution is based on Restrict Content Pro and will give you all the possible membership features you might want.
Within this service, we also include setting up encrypted HLS video on Amazon Cloudfront and/or Vimeo Pro (less expensive for large volumes). You will benefit from our expertise and experience in setting up high end membership sites. Thanks to economies of scale and practice, you'll enjoy a custom membership site which normally would cost $10K to build brick by brick for a single investment of $1500.
This service includes all software licenses for life as we have a lifetime developer's license for RCP. This service includes five hours of hands-on training (two at launch and three to spend learning advanced features later).
