WordPress consulting is one of the hottest fields around these days. There are lots of businesses and individuals that are realizing WordPress’ potential and are jumping ships from blogger and other content management systems to WordPress. It’s nice to have the right development skills as a WP consultant, but sometimes you can save a lot of time by grabbing a premium theme and customizing it for your clients. It certainly beats writing a theme from scratch. I am not suggesting that every client will accept such an option, but there are a lot of people who don’t mind saving a bit of money and let their consultants focus on theme customization rather than theme development.

If you are a WordPress consultant looking to enhance your business toolkit, here are 6 WordPress theme memberships you should try:

WooThemes: WooThemes is my favorite premium theme membership website. It has something for everyone.  It has flexible plans, and you can get your hands on Photoshop files, which is a must.

Templatic: it’s another one of my favorite WordPress theme clubs. There are a lot of retail WordPress themes available through this website. You can get your hands on all their themes for a very low price. You also get the Photoshop files.

Thesis: Thesis is not really a membership club program. It’s one super flexible theme that you can use as the skeleton for your designs. It’s very easy to customize as it takes advantage of hooks, so as long as you know your design technologies, you can build killer websites with Thesis. [click to continue…]

If you have been blogging for a while and know your niche inside and out, there is a good chance that you can make money through your own membership site. You can always apply the “freemium” concept to your content as well (use your blog for free content). aMember is an innovative PHP script that lets you start your very own paid content website fast. The solution is designed to work with WordPress and other top CMS and help you build a more solid community around your blog.

aMember provides support for PayPal, BeanStream, 2Checkout, NoChex, VeriSign PayFlow, Authorize.Net, PaySystems, Probilling, Multicards, E-Gold and Clickbank payment systems. In addition, you can use the system in conjunction with WordPress, Joomla, and vBulletin. It’s also translated to 7 Languages, so you can use the software to create international membership sites.

You can easily find out about how much your membership site has made in the back-end. You can add users, import and export your users, and back up your information easily as well. You also have a chance to manage your affiliate program through the back-end as well. [click to continue…]

I don’t know about you, but I am constantly on the look out for the best WordPress themes on the market. There are just too many of them around and choosing the right WordPress theme could take a lot of work depending on what you plan to do with your WordPress website. Getting a premium theme wouldn’t cost you more than a couple of hundred dollars, but if you have more than one website in multiple niches, you are going to need a WordPress membership such as that of WooThemes. Essentially, these sites provide you with unlimited licenses to lots of themes for a monthly fee. So instead of paying $200 to get an unlimited license to a single WordPress theme, you get your hands on 10-20 premium themes for $15-$30 a month. If you own lots of websites, that’s really the best way to go without you going broke, spending all your budget on all kinds of premium themes.


WooThemes is one of the best membership sites on the Internet that I personally recommend to my clients and colleagues. There are a lot of membership sites that provide you with low quality, rehashed themes on a monthly basis. With WooThemes, almost all its offered themes are very high quality and exciting. And the developers behind these themes don’t only focus on one or two category. They provide all kinds of themes for all types of websites to help you expand your website portfolio and build vlogs, portals, blogs, and startup sites.

WooThemes’ business model is very simple. You can either buy a single theme for a couple of hundred dollars or you can join its membership plan and get your hands on all the premium themes. There are two classes of membership available. You can choose the standard plan that will cost you $125 up front plus $15 a month fee for theme updates. If you are hardcore and want to build your own unique themes from WooThemes products, you should sign up for Developer Club Membership. It costs a bit more but at the same time you get all the PSD files, so you can use these themes to build unique, better themes for your website without having to start from scratch.
