Cape Learn WP was my first real foray into what is called a membership site. Not to be confused with a subscription site. Confused already? Yeah, I get that.
But for now, and forever, I have closed Cape Learn WP. (which you may or may not remember was a site I setup where you could have a free trial of high quality videos that teach you to learn WordPress and then signup for a deeper level of subscription)
It was fun and challenging to learn the ins and outs of such a website. Different levels of membership and access to different videos. All in all, a great idea. But it is not like it got any traction. Mainly because I did not continue to update it and market it. I built it and they did not come 🙂
I do not look at this as a failure. Not at all. Quite the opposite. Just another learning experience on the way to success. The main factor is that I enjoy doing websites for small local businesses. I see this as a better use of my time. For now. Until I invent that widget that everyone has to have and I have the only website that sells it.
Rather than leave CapeLearnWP hanging in the wind, I did the right thing and just took the site down completely. I hate “hanging chads”.
Please do not worry, as I am already planning my next foray into high functionality websites. It will use the venerable plugin that powers a very large percentage of online businesses. Yes, the one and only WooCommerce. Folks, this one FREE plugin can get you about 64% of Amazon.com’s features right out of the box. It is seriously powerful. Check them out at their new domain name… woocommerce.com
I guarantee you that the future of CapeWP rests heavily on this plugin. The level of awesomeness is truly astounding.
Will your business come to depend on WooCommerce?

Enjoy your summer,
