Last year, MemberPress launched an easy to use online course builder that works on top of the WordPress block editor. This makes it easy for non-techy website owners to create courses, add lessons, manage access control, and more.
The team also added a Classroom mode to offer a distraction-free learning experience that’s focused on content consumption and course completion rate. This immersive learning mode works with all WordPress themes.
Basically if you want to restrict access to any type of premium content in WordPress, then you should use MemberPress.
Final Thoughts on WordPress & Creator Economy
The WordPress economy and indirectly the creator economy is huge. In the State of Word for 2020, Matt Mullenweg, co-founder of WordPress shared that WooCommerce facilitated over $20 billion in sales in 2020.
Other third-party online course platforms like Teachable reported that course creators earned over $456.7 million in 2020. Thinkific is also estimating their course creators to earn around $550 million in 2021.
MemberPress is estimating that creators using MemberPress will surpass estimated $600 million in sales in 2021, and this is a conservative estimate.
The creator economy has been on the rise since I started WPBeginner in 2009, but it’s never been stronger than right now.
If you have the knowledge and passion for teaching others, then you can start a very successful online business today.
The combination of YouTube, membership platforms, and social networks for building community provide a unique opportunity for anyone who has a desire to succeed.
As a content creator myself, it’s extremely rewarding for me to see others succeed in their online journey.
I want to congratulate Blair and the MemberPress team in their role for building a robust platform that supports thousands of creators find success online.
Here’s to an amazing 2021!
