Membership Expert and Creator of The Membership Experience
About Me - My Biography
My name is Stu McLaren, and I help experts transform their knowledge and influence into recurring revenue by launching, growing and scaling 7 and 8-figure membership sites.
In 2008, I co-founded the world’s most popular membership platform for WordPress (WishList Member). When I sold my interests in October 2014, we were powering over 58,000+ online communities and membership sites.
That gave me a unique understanding of the dynamics involved with building highly profitable (but low stress) online communities. Most importantly, I discovered what keeps members coming back month after month – which is the secret to profitability soaring.
From there I decided to test my knowledge, and I partnered with New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt. Together we took his business from a high 6-figure business (with lots of stress) to a high 7-figure business (with low-stress). His profitability soared, his email list grew from 70,000 to over 500,000 and he gained back over 100+ days with his family by not having to travel.
That led to the coaching and consulting that I now do with other high-level experts and influencers who want the same kind of growth without the stress or tension of neglecting the things that matter most.
It’s these grassroots marketing insights that my wife and I have used to also successfully launch a registered Canadian charity called World Teacher Aid. Since 2009, we have been building schools in IDP camps throughout Kenya that are home to thousands of kids. This work lights up my entrepreneurial soul. I quickly realised, the more money I make, the more impact I can have. That’s why I’m SO passionate about sharing this experience with other entrepreneurs who want more meaning from their work.
So whether you want to make more money for yourself or raise funds for your favourite charity, I’ll show you the fastest and easiest way to generate recurring revenues by creating and selling your own membership sites.
