Membership Platform - Need Help

7 replies
Let me first start by saying thanks for checking out this thread, and also by saying I have looked at some of the other membership threads. The reason why I have created this one is because I haven't found my answer.
So please, if you have used a membership platform or can recommend a solution for what I describe below, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, if you or someone you know can handle customization of such a CMS, I'd like to talk to them/you too.

Here's what's going on:

I have a client who will be releasing a weekly TV show on the internet.
You must be a member to see the show.
There will be 3 or 4 membership levels
Level 1 - free
Level 2 - basic
Level 3 - Fan
Level 4 - VIP

Level 1 - you can watch the show on the day it comes out, it will be available for 24 hours. After that, a teaser for the following week's show will be played. Also, ONLY teasers are displayed to those who have not logged in... basically the public.

Level 2 - You can watch the episodes for a month. Which means they will have access from today and 1 month previous. This will be approx 4 shows. Older shows, will just show their Teaser

Level 3 - You can watch a year's worth of content. This means you can watch from today to 12 months prior to today.

Level 4 - You can watch all content at all times, no restrictions. As an added bonus they get behind the scenes footage and uncut-unedited footage.

This will be monthly recurring membership, or prepay annually subscription.

Also, there will be a store/shopping cart for people to buy swag and items from each show.

There should be a video voting system

User Profiles

Not sure about allowing a community just yet, but capability should be there if it grows to that.

This CMS needs to be able to handle the volume of users expected for this show. It also needs security to help thwart the stealing of the content.

Payment system, or the like. Probably will allow PayPal payments too.

Look and feel needs to be customizable.

That's all I can think of right now. If you have any questions, please ask away!

I appreciate your response.

    Memberspeed (non affiliate link) handles what you are looking for. I am developing a membership website myself and I have several levels of membership. You can drip feed your content. Shopping Cart. And More. Take a look. It is not the easiest program to work with, but does so much. Good Luck.

    There's your challenge right there. This dynamic "swapping" of content is unheard of in any membership system I've come across during my online existence. :p

    It sounds like you really need a customized solution built.

      @Money2k I'll check out MemberSpeed more in depth. The site design seems pretty old though.. web 1.0 type style. But I'll dig in deeper to see about the customization

      @BlueSquares .... that's what I'm afraid of. I could probably customize Wordpress to handle the content, but the membership access may be the problem. Joomla too...

      I just need to ensure either the membership platform has a CMS or the membership platform can integrate with a CMS.

      Someone suggested Surefire Profit System Anyone have experience with it enough to know its capabilities?

    Hi - I came across this thread while searching for a membership software that only allows acustomers access to material made available in the months they have paid for - I'm sure I've seen that feature on a ascript - may be useful for your needs - I'll post again if I find it
    good luck

    i know Amember, is supposed to be half-decent however I have not yet tried it myself. I am looking for a software similar to yours, just not as complex and Amember seems the best option at the moment.
