THE LIBRARIAN INSIDE YOUR MEMBERSHIP SITE
It’s easiest to think about Learning Management Systems like having a librarian inside of your WordPress membership site.
If you have a lot of content, whether written, video, audio, or images, things can become quite busy and hard to manage using the default pages post type inside of WordPress.
Even more difficult is the creation of meaningful navigation, learning flow, and repurposing of the same content in multiple places.
Like a librarian, an LMS makes it easy for you to add your training materials to WordPress in a granular way, and then organize them into Lessons, Topics, Courses, and more.
One can also use an LMS for measuring and testing the progress of members with Quizzes, Progress Bars, and Grouping of learners into cohorts of similarly situated people.
Although most LMS plugins today are capable of also on boarding users and taking money from them for gaining access, we recommend you limit your LMS plugin to only doing those things that are specifically related to organizing training materials and measuring progress, and nothing else.
By keeping the focus of your LMS on this one purpose, you will optimize your site architecture to use your CRM as the “brains”, improve your ability to convert more prospects into buyers with automation, and ensure that your site is completely upgradable as you grow your business.
There are many popular LMS plugins on the market today, but we recommend LifterLMS because of its simple yet powerful setup and its deep integration with WPFusion.
