Membership Geeks

Pros and Cons of Using a Cloud-based Membership Platform

Subscribe to the Podcast

Much of what we discuss in terms of membership site strategy and marketing is universal; however when it comes to the technical side of things we tend to focus almost exclusively on WordPress-based membership websites.

However there is a growing market in alternative cloud-based membership platforms such as Rainmaker or Kajabi which can solve a number of problems for anyone trying to ‘DIY' their membership site.

In this episode we discuss why we use WordPress, what is meant by “cloud service” vs “self-hosted”, which cloud-based alternatives are out there and what the pros and cons of each approach are.

We also discuss alternative ‘self-hosted' solutions outside of WordPress, such as forum-only platforms such as Xenforo.
