Hey it’s Dave Dunn from Fast Member .com
In this video I’m gonna talk about the new features in Fast Member 1.0.8
One of the major things we have done is re-written a lot of the core code. This means Fast Member is now more integrated with the WordPress core, making it even more future proof.
But that stuff is pretty boring!
What you want to know about are the juicy new features. So here we are…
Improved Free Products
In this new version Fast Member includes improvements to the way it handles FREE products.
You’ll see a new option for free members with less choices to worry about.
You’ll also see an expiry for the free membership. This allows you set an duration for the free product to limit access to your content if they don’t upgrade.
You’ve also got more choices on the ways free members are registered on your site.
There’s now options to simplify the signup form, add custom fields and even change the button text.
This means your free members can join with just an email address, or you can collect as much info about your new members as you wish and place the relevant Call To Action on your forms.
Another major improvement here is that free members are now logged straight in after registration.
No more checking emails for passwords or complicated registration forms.
Fast Member gives you the tools you need for a complete lead generation system just the way you wanted it.
More Auto Responder Integrations
Another marked improvement is the way AutoResponder integration is handled. We’ve made improvements to the handling for Get Response, plus added support for Send Reach and Klick Tipp, all using the API.
Amazon SES is also now supported with SMTP encryption.
We’ve also added a Drip Day Advance, which allows you to customise the drip feed schedule on a users basis. This is a useful feature which will let you unlock all the content just for certain members if you wish.
You can also see the last time a member logged into your site, letting know who your most active members are.
You’ll notice a few cosmetic changes to the Tabs, keeping us more inline with the WordPress core. Plus a major overhaul of the charting. We’ve done away with Flash based charts in favour of HTML5.
This now means you can log in and view your stats on your IPad or even your iPhone…
(though we still find the iPhone a little fiddly for running a member site, the option is there)
More International Support
There is also more international support with Hebrew and Italian translations and additional Israeli currency.
Plus a whole host of bug fixes means Fast Member is more stable than ever.
In the next 1.0.9 update you’re gonna see a lot more of the features that you’ve asked for.
This is Dave Dunn and on behalf of Mike and the rest of the Fast Member team thank you for watching.
We’re happy to be giving you a rock solid platform for building your membership sites.
