Publishing posts to your Membership site lets you stay in touch with your members and deliver value for their subscription.
And on Podia, it's really, really easy.
Step 1: Click the "Memberships" button in the top sidebar. You'll be taken directly to the "Posts" tab.
Step 2: Select "Add new post."
Step 3: Give your post a title, and simply write your post below.
If you're struggling with writer's block, here are a few ideas for your next post:
- An update on what you've been up to with your work
- A "tip" you've recently learned that can help your members
- Share some links or articles you've recently found useful.
- A question that your readers can answer in the comments, either to help you get inspiration for your next digital product (e.g. "what's the biggest challenge you'd like to solve this year?") or just to keep your members engaged (e.g. "Happy Friday! What's one thing you're proud of doing this week?").
You can add images and GIFs to your post by dragging them into the editor. You can also upload a video by dragging it into the area labelled "Video."
Note: if adding a video to a post, make sure you have at least a little blurb for the text body as well. Otherwise, the post won't publish.
Step 4: Choose whether you want to send your members an email notification (when in doubt, send it out; your members want to hear from you!). The email will be sent once your post is published.
Step 5: Save your post! If the post is finished and you're ready to send the (optional) email notification to your subscribers, hit "Publish now." Or, click "Schedule..." to choose a specific time to have the post published and the email sent.
Hit "Save as draft" if you're not ready to publish your post just yet.
If you want to build a thriving community, it's important to post content often and consistently. Podia makes this really easy for you by allowing you to schedule posts. If you're feeling inspired on a rainy Saturday, you could prepare a whole month's worth of content (or more) and have your posts published on a regular schedule.
Here's how — instead of clicking the "Publish now" button, click the "Schedule..." link. This will open a popup that lets you specify the date and time that you'd like the post to be published:
Scheduled posts will not be visible to your subscribers until after the date you choose. If you've chosen to send an email notification (which we recommend), it will automatically be sent a few minutes after your scheduled publish date.
