Hello,
I have a quick question and appreciate any input as I am a little confused :confused:

Here's the question:I'm looking to start another membership site and wanted to know if anyone has had experience with optimizepress.

It seems to be a simple do it yourself WYSIWYG option.

I'm unclear if you need to have an existing wordpress or is this a all in one solution.

Thanks!

    OptimizePress is basically a WordPress theme. So, you need to have WordPress installed.

    OptimizePress is a WordPress theme that provides the layout/framework for a membership site, but does not protect the content. For content protection you'll need a membership script such as Digital Access Pass, Wishlist Member, or s2member. I've even used WP eMember with success. Really, OptimizePress will integrate with any WordPress membership script.

    Also by using OptimizePress, you can setup a complete sales funnel. Everything from squeeze pages to sales pages to membership areas. It's a great tool to have in your I.M. toolbox. Good luck!

      Hi Logan,

      Your explanation about Optimizepress is very clear. I enjoy reading it.

      OptimizePress is primarily focused as a sales theme, (designed to build sales funnels, list building sites and membership pages)?

      But can I Build A "Professional Blog" With OptimizePress?
      As I know, there are thousands of wordpress themes and frameworks created for different applications.

      Are there any themes and frameworks that are designed for the following:

      1. Sales Pages, Product Launch Page, Squeeze Page.
      2. Membership Function
      3. Affiliate Sites
      4. No coding/ programming required (Drag n Drop function)

      Actually I have posted few threads, but I don't get any good response so far. I have been stuck there for the past 10 days.

        Hi Sam,

        You can build a blog with OptimizePress and as for the "all-in-one" solution for your four points above, I think Internet Marketing WordPress Theme | WordPress For Internet Marketers is the closest that you'll get.

        However, you may want to check out these to see your options:

        + Optimize Press
        + FlexSqueeze
        + WordPress For Internet Marketers
        + WP Sales Engine

        And a few more for your reading pleasure:

        + Authority Pro 2.0
        + IM Plugin Pro
        + WP Spire


        I've personally use OptimizePress, so I can vouch that it's an awesome theme and with a bit of customization to any of the above mentioned sales/squeeze systems that you choose, you can achieve your desired results.

        By the way, I think your drag-and-drop idea is great and I know most of themes that I mentioned use short-codes. No dragging and dropping, but a quick insert has a massive effect.

        Best,
        Logan

        If you want...

        All of those things and more including stand alone membership capability.

        User friendly, be able to build a professional blog besides and more.

        Check the post on my blog. I am using it and love it. Everyone raves about OP but I didn't care for it. Profits Theme is the way to go.

        ProfitsTheme is far from it in fact. Like I said. Didn't like OP but PT is what I use and it works, period.

        I do have some more experience than my whopping 18 posts may convey but if that's not enough Istvan has over 6,000. He might know a thing or two.

        Go with Profits Theme or try it out, they have 30 Day Guarantee. Won't know till you get your hands on it.

    optimize press is a great sales tool for newbies but it lacks features for the more advanced marketers.

    It's membership site management is lacking, you would need to integrate it with a secondary solution

    Optimize Press is only a WordPress theme if you want to make a membership website you should consider adding Wishlist Member as the managing system.

    If you partner OptimizePress with Wishlist or other membership plugins, it will work the way you want it to be. However, everything should be done right. From settings and stuff but they are fairly user friendly, so you won't have a hard time setting it up.

      #4 is, in most of the cases, an unrealistic (should I say: dumb?) request by...

      Check out Profits Theme - has membership built-in + a lot of other features.

          If you are a self-appointed "newbie" - it means you are NOT in position to judge what is advanced and what requires coding/programming.

          The simple use of themes does never require "programming". Period. That's a misconception!

          Extreme customization requires some coding knowledge.

    How does Optimize Press compare to FlexSqueeze? I want something to make creating of sales pages a quicker task. One of the main considerations I have is that I need price tables.
