Custom landing page guide

If you’d like to sell memberships, but either don’t have your own website or don’t have the ability to create a new sales page on your website—you can create a customized landing page hosted by Memberful.

You can add a title and description to the page, select which plans and downloads will appear on the page, customize their name and description, and add additional content like FAQs or testimonials. If you’re on the Pro or Premium plan, your custom branding will be applied as well.

How to create your custom landing page:

  1. Create your Plans.
  2. Add items and customize the page.
  3. Customize your branding.
  4. Make your page live.

Create your Plans

We need to have something to sell, so before we work on the Landing Page, we'll create a membership Plan.

To create your Plan(s), log in to your Memberful dashboard, navigate to the Plans tab, and click New Plan. We recommend that you offer at least one monthly Plan and one yearly Plan.

Customize your branding

If you’re on the Pro or Premium plan, your custom branding (including page background color, button color, and logo image) will be applied to your Landing Page. Learn more about customizing your branding.

Add items and customize the page

Once you’ve created your plans, navigate to Customize → Landing page to create your page. Click Create your page to open the landing page editor and customize the content on the page.

At the top of the page you can add a title and an optional description for the entire page. Use the rich-text controls to add bold text, italics, strikethroughs, and links.

Edit the page description

Below that, you’ll add selected plans and standalone downloads to the page for members to purchase. While you can add as many as you like, we recommend a maximum of 4 items in order to make the page easier for visitors to scan and make a decision about their purchase.

To add an item, click the Add button:

Add a plan button

Then, select your Plan or Download in the modal, and click Add to page:

Add a plan modal

For each item you can customize the display name, the description, and the button label. Click to select each element, and make your changes. For the description, use the rich text controls to add bold text, italics, strike-throughs, links, and both bulleted and numbered lists.

The description is a great place to list the benefits your members will receive for signing up, or to compare each plan offering against the others to help your visitors make the best purchase.

Edit the contents of items

To re-order the items on your page, just hover over the item and then click and drag it by the bar that shows up above it.

Drag to re-order items

If you’re on a mobile touch-based device, just tap the up or down arrows to change the order of each item.

Reorder mobile

Below your items, you can add any additional content that you’d like. This is a great place to include a few FAQs about your membership, customer testimonials, or contact information.

Add additional content

Every landing page includes a prominent link for members to log into their account at any time.

Make your page live

In the top-right corner of the page you’ll see a switch where you can turn your page on or off (it will be off by default). Toggling the switch to Live will make the page publicly visible at the URL https://YOURSITE.memberful.com/join. Toggling the switch off will mean that nobody can view your landing page. This lets you make all of the changes you’d like before making it publicly available.

Make your page live

Now you have your own custom landing page! 🎉
