BuddyPress Seminar April 11th and 12th, 11am to 3pm EDT

On April 11th and 12th from 11am to 3pm EDT we will host a two-day online seminar on using BuddyPress with PMPro.

We will field questions on using the two plugins via live video stream and offer hands-on help as you set up BuddyPress. Join the whole seminar or pop in for an hour or two. Our goal is to help as many of you as possible to make full use of these plugins and learn how you are using BuddyPress so that we can improve our platform.

You can prepare for the seminar by setting up a development site either on your web host or a local site created via Local by Flywheel. Be sure to install and activate these plugins: Paid Memberships ProBuddyPressand our BuddyPress Integration Add On.

The seminar includes a space for chat, but if you’d like to be included in our Slack channel, please request an invitation via the Contact Form.

A link to access Day 2 of the seminar will be posted below for our support-level members.

Thanks! I look forward to helping as many of you as possible with BuddyPress and Paid Memberships Pro.

Video Presentation on Pricing Membership Levels

I’ve uploaded my video on Pricing Your Membership Levels. In place of the webinar on pricing, I’ve made this video of myself talking through the presentation I had put together.

Watch the Webinar Recording

Note: Today we had a major technical fail while trying to run our user webinar. I’ll skip the details, but we messed up big time, and people were left hanging and waiting for things to start. We were so delayed in getting things started and not confident that we could round viewers up to deliver a quality webinar. And so we decided to cancel the event. It wasn’t an easy decision, and we’re very sorry to the members who were ready and looking forward to that webinar.

Ask questions. Let’s setup an interview.

I’d really like to answer specific questions and address specific businesses that are struggling with pricing. So if you have a question, please post it in the comments below and I will do my best to address on the blog here. If you are open to a filmed interview that we could share on the site here, let us know. I will reach out to some of you to do one-on-one consultations that I think will be educational for everyone.
