How to get this plugin?
By choosing to use this plugin, you simplify your work and create an amazing customer experience. Simply get it from the EffectIO dashboard and activate it. Then go to Woocommerce -> Settings and start customizing your perfect ecommerce shop.
Here you have 3 options: General, Products and Messages. If you choose the General options, you can set how the whole site will use these options. For example, the Content restriction mode has 3 options, for which you can set how the whole content will be seen. You can choose between hide content only, redirect to a specific page if they click on restricted content and hide completely.
In the case that you want to show excerpts to your users about what the restricted content is about, you can do that by simply checking the box. However, be aware that even the search engines will get access to that specific content. You might want to do this for 2 main reasons: you make your users curious about that content, product etc. and they might want to buy to see more. The second reason is that search engines may rank your restricted content if they see an excerpt. Maybe not on the first page, but who knows. Some Google users might find it interesting and click on it.
If you have lots of pages, this option might be a good idea. For example if you have an SEO page and you write more pages about SEO but you set them as children to the first page mentioned, the second ones will not show, unless a subscription is bought. In other words, they inherit the parent restrictions, just like the plugin says.
When your users log in your site, it might be a good idea to redirect your users to somewhere where they can start from. But this entirely depends on your business. The Woocommerce Memberships plugin offers you 3 alternatives, from which you can only choose 1. The first one is the No Redirect one. This means that nothing will happen. The second one is the Members Area and we’d highly recommend you to do so, unless you simply don’t have one. The third option is the Site Page, which is a specific page built for your customers.
However, note that if the users don’t have the right membership that triggers this page, nothing will happen.
Last but not least, the Privacy option allows your users to delete all their data when they simply don’t want to be a premium member of your site. Sadly, this occasion happens sometimes, but they have the right to know that they can do so. Privacy and data protection is a big thing nowadays, everywhere. So make sure your site is compliant with the latest “trends”.
To sum up
In conclusion, the Woocommerce Memberships plugin is the one you need if you want to make your customers curious about what you have to offer, but you can also make lots of money if you use this plugin right. Don’t restrict too much content, otherwise, your customers will not know about what your site is and they might lose interest. Use it wisely instead and enjoy all the benefits your brand can get you.
