    So:

    I'm interested in setting up a membership site, (i'm not asking for ideas) and I don't really know the steps about it
    does it go like this?:
    1. Create Site
    2. Get payment methods set up
    3. ???
    4. ??? Like how do you start attracting members to help your site grow?

    Also, how would you set up the site? Are there templates out there to use or do you hand code? I'm a bit clueless but really interested.

    Steps would be:

    1) Define the niche and purpose of the site
    2) Set up the structore and payment system
    3) Create the content
    4) Rank your site and bank
    5) Diversify marketing traffic sources

    Therr you go.

    After the niche research and all the purpose of the site stuff is out the way.

    Make sure what CMS you want to go with.

    IF you decide you want to go with WordPress as a beginner please use All in One Security for the love of God and get up to 270 on the meter. Most membership sites even in the beginning if you have luck will not matter if the site gets hacked.

    And most targeted sites out there are WordPress websites.

    Also make sure you backup your database so you can get back up and live a lot easily instead of just losing your site like that.

    Don't ignore this advice please for your benefit.
