Using our Membership app is a perfect way to expand your workout business by bringing it online and serving more people all over the world. You can easily coach your clients online every day by giving them access to your workouts. Your customers will be able to access a course, video or other digital resources for a certain period of time.

Selling your workouts and fitness plans online is a massive opportunity which can dramatically increase your income because unlike a gym where you can gather a certain number of people, your online workouts can reach hundreds and even thousands of people who will pay for them. Your online courses can also serve as a marketing tool and strengthen relationships with your clients.

Step 1 - Shoot your workouts and create a paid page

Once you've chosen a specific topic for your online training program, it's time to shoot some good videos. You need to keep production levels quite high. Remember that people will pay good money for your class if you offer better quality than they would get for free on YouTube.

So, once you have professional videos of your workouts, you can easily upload them to your CloudCart site. First you need to install the Membership app from the Apps section of the admin panel of your store, then create a paid access page that will house your video (s) or other digital resource. 

Go to the Marketing > Landing Pages section and click the Add new page button in the upper right corner of the page.  

In the side panel that opens, you can use the Drag & Drop Page Builder or Regular page. Click on the option that is appropriate for your case. 

If you have selected Drag & Drop Page Builder, from the Private page drop-down menu select Yes and create your page.

If you are creating a regular page, enable the Private page button at the top of the screen and enter the desired content.  The paid access page will only be available to customers who have paid for the product. Otherwise, it will not open even with a direct link.

Step 2 - Configuring a digital product

 Once you have created your paid page it is time to configure a digital product and select the page you have created earlier. 

  • Go to the Products > Products section and clicking the Add product button. 
  • Enter the information about the product and in the Product configuration section from the drop-down menu select the product type - Digital.

  • In the next step, from the menu that will appear select the type of digital product - Pages.

  • Select pages - from here you can select the page(s) your customers will have access to after paying for the product
  • Access days- fill in the number of days from the date of purchase for which you give access to this product
    If 0 is entered in the access days field or it is left blank, the access period will be unlimited.

Email template for receiving access to pages

Along with the app, in the section Marketing > Omnichannel > Email templates a new email template will be installed - Send access to pages. With this email template a notification is sent to give access to the pages of a purchased workouts. The customer will receive an email with links to one or more pages as soon as he pays the respective digital product, as well as information on how long he has access to the links.   

You are able to edit the text and design of the template to best suit your needs and preferences.  The template includes a new variable {$pages} that contains a link to the content you give your customers access.

With the Membership app, you have access to a new menu in the Orders section - Subscriptions You can add additional days, i.e. extend the access to certain pages from the Add days button.
