What problem did you solve with Memberstack?

It wasn't very easy to charge people. The only real thing that I could do is send people Stripe Checkout links. People just wouldn't pay, you know, because there's a huge barrier in the overalluser experience.

With Memberstack, I could embed that entire experience, and easily give people additional perks - like a premium job board - for a membership fee. That solved the problem immediately.Being able to easily charge money, I could also add more value to my paying community members.

The Membership Business Model

Without Memberstack, I would've probably had to explore a different business model entirely. I think I would've probably focused more on a concierge service where I would just take percentages or have a revenue share model. But then again, that becomes a bit difficult at scale because there's still a lot of manual work that goes along with it.

Then the membership model that I could build with Memberstack allowed me to build the automated businesses that I wanted to create for myself.

What tools do you use?

The foundation tools are Webflow to build the website, and Airtable which is my database tool.Then I use Integromat (Make.com) and Zapier to connect those together.

I use Jetboost for search and filtering, Stripe for payments, Flowbase for fast Webflow builds, and I send all of my market emails with MailerSend. What else do I use? Ah, Circle, to host my community.

What excites you most about Memberstack?

That it does exactly what I need it to do. And even though there are some alternatives out there, I still think that given what I need in it, it ticks most of the boxes. And I think, especially because it was designed for Webflow in the first place, it's always been a really good fit.
