Use case: Ideas for using memberships

  • Updated

What exactly can you do with the product type Membership and what is special about it? Here is some inspiration.

What's so special about it?

Own design for your membership area possible via the membership theme

You can design the area in which the membership and the corresponding products are displayed yourself in the membership theme with our pagebuilder if the app customization is included in your package. In this way, your customers who view the membership will see this and the products contained there in the design of the membership theme and the additional information you have stored in the theme.

In this way, your customers not only see the white elopage payer account, but also the membership you designed with the membership product.

As usual from the pagebuilder, you can store and configure various blocks such as image, text, video, PDF, download files, etc. -> Membership theme: Create main area

Here is an example of a membership that starts later. This already provides information about the later start, that the products can be found there from 01.12. and to bridge the gap there are already two recipes here as a download.


You could even create a different design for each membership, which thematically fits the contained products or your target group and provide this in your membership. - > Provide membership theme with the product

Products and files can be continuously updated

You can add or remove products at any time, exchange or update provided files and thus continuously supplement or reduce the membership content. 

What pricing plans are available for this?

Many people use memberships for monthly subscriptions. But you can provide all possible pricing plans and options that also apply to other products with the membership, so you can also offer them free of charge.

Ideas for memberships

Classic membership

Classic membership where you provide your customers with various products - mostly online courses or download products - and regularly expand or exchange the content (e.g. take out month-related expired products).

If you combine this with subscription payments, your customers will have access as long as they pay or do not cancel the subscription.

If your membership is terminated, you can block access or remove all products, which is not possible with download products, for example.

Download Library / Form Center

Would you like to provide all members with various downloads such as checklists, forms, instructions, freebies, etc. and would like to update or expand them regularly?

Then you can use one or more online courses from the membership and provide them there as a file for download or as a PDF for direct viewing.

Or you can use the membership theme for a download area and provide the blocks Download, Button (for external files, e.g. in the cloud) or PDF files to provide the content.

Template Center 

Do you offer different templates, e.g. for Excel or Word, e.g. a holiday planner, a household checklist...?

Then provide them via the membership, e.g. via online courses or the membership theme as a download. 

Sharing center for courses / themes with eloshare
Do you offer your customers online courses or themes designed by you, which they can then import and adapt to their seller account?

Then you can provide your customers with your sharing link.

With an unprotected link, your members can transfer the product / theme to their account without buying it.

If you want to offer themes for sale in the membership, you can advertise the products or pages you have designed there and then provide the link to the paid product, including a protected link. Only after purchasing the template will your customer receive the code for the import.

Time-delayed course activation for membership with fixed start date

Do you offer different content on a topic area and do not want to offer them all in one large course, but as a membership where your customers already see the other courses, but the entire course content is activated later (week 2, month 2)?

Then you can create and provide courses "from date." Each course then starts on the specified start date.

If you have courses that are set to "from payment" and pages with drip-in and want all current members to start the drip-in at the same time, then you can add them to the membership at the appropriate time. The drip-in then starts for everyone at the time when the course is stored in the membership (provided that the customer already has access to the membership).

Selection of courses by your customers in first free membership

You want to offer a free area where your customers can individually choose which courses they want to complete - after paying for one or more courses (with a one-time payment).

  • Then create a free membership with these courses.
  • Leave the first page without drip-in and greet your customers and explain the procedure. You will then see the first page and table of contents of the course.
  • Create a quiz with manual answer on this 1st page and ask for the order number for the purchase of the access.
  • Then create a digital product with prices for 1, 2, 3, all courses and name the pricing plan accordingly.
  • Your customer who wants to have access to course 2 goes to course 2 and answers the quiz with the order number from the purchased digital product.
  • You receive the quiz answer and check the order numbers and if it is correct for the course, you confirm the quiz as correct. Your customer automatically receives access to the course within the membership. If several courses have been purchased, this process is necessary for all relevant courses.

Ideas for the membership theme

Make upsell offers

Use the membership theme for more information or upsell offers to other products.

Webinar dates

If you regularly conduct webinars for your members, enter the date and the link to the webinar room directly in the membership theme instead of in the course itself.

Provision of up-to-date information

Provide up-to-date information in the membership theme about vacation times, new offers or welcome new members.
