    hello, i am going to invest $500 in a membership website. And im probably going to use amember to manage.

    Where is best way to make a member ship site? wordpress, drupal, custom?

    How do people setup all the fancy membership benefits?

    What should i know before i venture into making a membership site?

    I have alot more questions i will give many thanks for answers!

    Use Wordpress with Optimize Press. If you use the templates you can get your graphics done for very cheap. I use OP with DAP myself but DAP is $300 for unlimited sites. OP is around $100 I believe. Alot of people use it for membership sites...it looks really good and professional.

    I personally run a paid membership site using aMember pro and Wordpress, works really well.

    Depending on what you are going to offer.. you can go for wordpress with amember or you can go for a forum with mods for premium membership.
