Let us help you create your very own membership website!
Do you need a website with the ability to transact a one off or recurring monthly or annual membership? How about an inbuilt forum which will allow your members to connect and communicate with one another privately? What about the ability for them to access events or online learning?
Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered with our Membership Websites!
Our company disrupted the website industry in 2013 when we started offering kick arse website design and developments, including membership websites which are mobile responsive, at an extremely affordable price.
People are constantly astounded at how their vision for their membership website becomes a reality right before their eyes either in person working from our Sunshine Coast or Newcastle office or online — as we complete these membership web sites projects for clients around the world.
We have been known to build sites in this package as soon as the very next day. But subject to our production schedule, generally, your ‘build’ day will be booked in within weeks from sign-off.
Don’t put your most important marketing assets in the hands of a rookie. We live and breathe our stuff! Your website will be fast, responsive and highly-functioning!
Don’t think for a minute that fast means compromising on design. Our portfolio will prove that the sites we build in just 1 day, are up there with some of our most beautiful work!
What is a membership website?
Our preferred system to develop a membership website on is WordPress.
Enable registered members to create profiles, have private conversations, make connections, create & interact in groups, and much more. Truly a social network in a box, BuddyPress helps you more easily build a home for your company, school, sports team, or other niche community.
For years website designers and website development companies have tackled membership websites in the same manner. Take a brief. Start the build. Send the client a link to review. Get feedback. Request content from the client. The membership website develops some more. But overall the process could easily take a few weeks, often a few months. And in the meantime you’re not online and you’re most certainly not selling.
Clients would get frustrated at how long it would take. Agencies would get frustrated at clients who didn’t supply the content and delayed the project. Clients would get upset about the membership website not looking like or doing what they had hoped for. Agencies would get frustrated about clients who kept moving the goal posts in terms of what they wanted.
Our membership website packages address all of these issues and more.
What sorts of features and functions can a membership website have?
There is an ever-increasing array of extended features developed by an active and thriving plugin development community, with hundreds of free and paid membership plugins available. Some features and functions past clients have engaged us for include:
- Custom membership zones
- Password protected intranets
- Paid membership packages with automatical renewals
- Paid memberships with the ability to add and update directories
- Directory listing sites
- Installation of WooCommerce or other ecommerce transaction portal so you can charge a membership fee monthly or annually
- Integrate Stripe or Paypal to accept funds
- Install vouchers function
- Setup of forums
- Site forms which deliver reports based on customer ‘scores’ or other data logic.
How does the membership website build process work?
Our entire Membership website process is streamlined into four key stages:
1/ TAKE A BRIEF
2/ BUILD DAY
3/ GO LIVE
4/ HANDOVER & TRAINING
Using this simple 4 step method, The Creative Collective has developed hundreds of websites and have managed to fine-tune the process of a website build into two eight hour periods (830am — 430pm) for a Membership website featuring some core components. Working either along side our teams at our Sunshine Coast, Brisbane or Newcastle offices, OR on Skype (we’ve worked with clients all around the world many times over in this matter), alongside an allocated project manager, a lead web developer and a support web developer, you will be amazed at what can be achieved in just two days.
Using the world’s most popular website platform WordPress, which clients can easily self manage after handover, we lean on a variety of available plug ins integrating these with the website to achieve the clients desired functionality including whatever features and functionality have been agreed on during the briefing.

We engaged the Creative Collective for a website refresh on our tired online presence. The team were professional, clear, technically proficient, helpful and also provided timely guidance on how to get the most out of our project. I will be using their services again and thoroughly recommend engaging the Creative Collective team for your website / marketing needs.

“What a journey, and what a sensational result! Have spent some time this evening navigating through the back end of the site, making updates, additions and edits – very happy with the usability post handover.

“I want to thank you for the stunning website and all of your care and professionalism. I am simply blown away by how organised efficient, skilled and kind all of your team are. I couldn’t be happier with the decision to contract The Creative collective to build our company website. Over the years of running my business I have hired other companies and not had good results. The Creative Collective excelled in every aspect from start to finish and the results are beautiful. A huge congratulations to all of your team and a massive thank you to Gina Novoa whose project management has been flawless. I am beyond impressed. Thank you :)”

We have been working with Allan from the Creative Collective for around 3 years now and have never had a moments doubt that we are with the right team for us. Quick to respond to support emails and come back with a time table to sort the issue if it cannot be resolved immediately. We are very happy with the consistent uptime and response time of our website. We highly recommend Creative Collective.

“Would like to thank you again for our website everyone who has seen it have been saying how good it looks. Kind Regards, Alice.”
“If the concept wasn’t enough, the marketing has blown me away. I’ve received an enormous amount of positive feedback from all genders, young and old who all comment on the name/design The Creative Collective came up with for me. I love driving around in my Brew Captain branded vehicle and handing out the professionally designed marketing items. This is my first time in business for myself and everything from start to finish was very simple, and easy working with these guys. It was a real pleasure and we’ll continue to use them as the business grows from a one man show to hopefully a full franchise.”
“I am so thrilled with what this company can do in a day. It has been such a breeze working with them and they have made everything really easy and simple. I have unsuccessfully tried previously to get my websites up and running and I finally have a stunning website and branding. Couldn’t recommend you guys enough! 10/10!”
