Digital Access Pass Updates
Digital Access Pass (DAP) is one of my favorite membership site tools. I LOVE their dripping feature. In the past you could not only drip content, but you could drip email (auto respond). The somewhat bad news is when you send email with your shared hosting server it may be seen as spam. Recently Digital Access Pass now integrates with Aweber. This uses Awebers API and thus enables you to bypass the double opt in. You can pass the password to Aweber and Aweber can send it to the customer.
DAP also now seamlessly integrates with Clickbank, JVZoo and WarriorPlus. Now when people purchase your product and get taken back to your site they will automatically be signed in. A rarely-mentioned feature of DAP, is that DAP lets you take advantage of all of these different Affiliate Networks and sell the EXACT… SAME.. PRODUCT… on all of these networks… ALL the at same time!
Digital Access Pass is a membership script, affiliate script, shopping cart, all in one. Pricing starts at $167 (one time fee) or $40 a month.
Value Add On Takes Stripe Usage Up a Few Notches
I talked about Value Add On in the past. The problem I had with my membership site wasn’t protecting it, but the layout. After beating my head against the wall with OptimizePress 2.0 I switched to ValueAdd on to make the layout of my membership site.

ThriveThemes Page Builder
I was checking out Thrivethemes.com A friend of mine told me that these were cool and flexible themes. I watched a ton of videos and they seem to focus on flexibility and fast loading themes. They offer a monthly ($20) or yearly ($147). that is for sites you own. If you want to put these themes on a clients site it’s more. Their content builder is impressive. It just seems like I’m back in the 80’s and I can’t tell the difference between Faster Pussycat, Poison, Cinderella, and LA Guns. Different names with the same results. Thrive has some cool integrations to optimize your images automatically which will speed up your website and save you bandwidth. If I had to pick a motto for them it is speed and flexibility. They have lots of documentation, and videos. I was surprised that in one video the person doing the demo couldn’t get the color of the text to stay white. While I appreciate the honesty, I did scratch my head. Here is a video showing of their Content Builder
Divi 2.4 Have the Kitchen Sink
As a creative person, I love that someone can draw me a layout and I can probably reproduce it with Divi 2.4 This theme (again another drag and drop page builder) seems uber flexible. It is an amazing theme. Here is a quick video showing off just SOME of the new features. Here is a list of all the updates. For more information check out Elegantthemes.com
Pricing for Elegant Themes is $69 a year. $89 if you want to have access to their plugins (which I will be covering over the next few weeks). Elegant Themes has 87 themes (and you get access to all of them for $69). I have been using Divi on www.powerofpodcasting.com and (as you might imagine) I had to flatten the learning curve. Their support was awesome. When was the last time you had three back and forth emails with a support team in the same day. I was impressed.
