What are you trying to accomplish?
You can do this with an email provider like MailChimp, AWebber, or Memberful, HubSpot.
There are a number of WordPress plugins that work with your site if you are going to gate content for members or release content at certain times.
I'm happy to help more, but I'd need a little more detail to give you an appropriate answer.
Book a call and we can discuss more.
All the best,
You're going to need to baseline technologies - something to capture membership and manage members and something to deliver the content. Even in a low budget you can either merge to services/technologies or plugins together or find an all encompassing one. There are many more options than this but to help get you started.
Tools for Membership
- Woo Subscriptions
- Member Mouse
Tools for Drip Content
- Aweber, Mailchimp, Constant Contact, i.e. newsletter services with marketing automation built into them ('marketing automation' will be the keyword you'll want to do searches on to find the tool thats right for you)
- Intercom (not for low budget)
- Hubspot (not for low budget)
Tools that do both:
- Agile CRM (WordPress Plugin and Integration)
Biggest thing to understand is that at the core you need two pieces - the first is a way to manage members (even if free) and provide secure content only to them. The second is distribute your content on a schedule. Like all things there are many ways to approach this but hopefully this gives you a head start. If you have more specific questions let me know.
I am a pretty big fan of the Sensei plugin from Woothemes that uses Woocommerce. Sensei is a paid plugin but its pretty powerful. You could use it for a content drip on your website and also set up courses. We have set up multiple websites using this plugin including using it to power an online driving school with prerequisites that have to be met before moving on to the next chapter and tests that won't let you proceed unless you get a passing grade.
