Host a paid membership online and want to protect your content? Even wonder what exactly that little "terms" checkbox should say at your customer's checkout?
This template is perfect for:
Digital coaching memberships
Business membership programs
content/curriculum membership programs
Other digital programs/group coaching/mastermind or other digital-based “programs” that include access materials behind a paywall and maybe some community elements like a Facebook group, Q&A calls, coaching, office hours, etc.
And it works for literally EVERY type of business in any industry that is selling something online and is providing resources to their participants.
