This site is mainly for myself - Ryan to think out loud and organize some projects. But hey - feel free to look around and see what I am up to.
I am in the process of switching my feldenkrais products and membership site away from e-Junkie and S2member to create a more modern sales and marketing system. AND MemberPress via new rules integration engine.
Started a 90-day trial of SamCart and a 14-day trial of Deadline Funnel on September 6th, 2019. I started updating the current page on September 10th, 2019.
Update: Sent my first sales email on Sept 19th, 2019 regarding my Feldenkrais TMJ Vol 2 including a "bump" upgrade to TMJ Vol 1 and my Eliminate Back Pain Series. So...it only took me 13 days to do my first sale.
Next up, to add my FB pixel to the download page and to start a FB ad campaign.
Skip Membership Site and Just Do A Weekly Email Via SamCart/Aweber Integration
I could simply do a 1-step upgrade via SamCart wherein a person gets added to an Aweber list that sends a weekly email with a session for X number of dollars. And then also have a Facebook group where people can ask questions. It would be very simple.
Change from S2member
September 16th, 2019. Rather than switch from s2member as I mention below, why not simply do a "get a weekly Feldenkrais session" and deliver it with Aweber? I could set-up the recurring product in SamCart and then add folks to an Aweber list that sends them the monthly session...
Or integrate s2member with SamCart.
And - soon - I will change from s2member to one of the wordpress membership plugins supported by SamCart, namely:
MemberPress - Best Choice
April, 10th, 2020 - SamCart is still updating their MemberPress Integration. Taking an another look now:
April, 10th, 2020 - SamCart is still updating their WishList Member Integration. Taking an another look now.
I took wishlist member off the list. It's founder is no longer with the company and the software (according to other's is dated.
Digital Access Pass. Not looking good...the recurring billing integration looks poor.
Though this might make it no, go. I want people to be able to cancel on their own with NO input from me or my team:
when a member signs up with you, SamCart creates a member account for them in MemberMouse. However, the SamCart plugin takes over the subscription management. There's no payment or billing automation handled on the MemberMouse side, it's all handled by SamCart, so it's important to be aware of how this effects your process. For example, if someone purchases something in SamCart and then cancels their account through MemberMouse, the subscription won't be canceled automatically in SamCart
Optimize Member: NOT Looking Good
They are no longer selling this as it is based on s2member and s2member is very slow on releasing updates.
They have offered to sell me a version that I can use on my website but only if I but the "suite" at $199 per year.
$79 per year. SamCart can create and delete subscriptions
Integrate Optimize Member With SamCart
Contacted Krum, he might be a good resource. Krum gave me the idea of sticking with S2Member and making it play nice with SamCart. Perhaps.
Or - put a NEW SamCartEnabled membership plugin on EasyFeldenkrais.com or another site..
I need to keep creating my funnels in SamCart. And I will start by re-watching and implementing the process in this video:
SamCart/Facebook Conversion Pixel
Yesterday began the process of integrating the Facebook marketing pixel into SamCart. It is SOOOOO much easier than E-Junkie and will give more specific information.

SamCart and Zapier
Learning about SamCart + WP Membership plugin integration led to me take another look at Zapier. I am logging into my Zapier account now.
create a unique deadline on Deadline Funnel for each subscriber when they opt in to your AWeber list, letting you control their access easily.
*Note: This integration doesn't create deadlines for already subscribed leads in AWeber - only for new subscribers after you've set it up.
