As you can see there are many choices to make but all giving the flexibility to create the income needed from membership plans that you can control at your finger tips.
Always decide how you want to market your membership as this will give you the best ideas for how to create the plan. For example think about how long the plan will be especially if you are going to combine a number of sessions as part of the offer.
It's always advisable to have a time period set up so that it expires at some stage.
eg. 10 sessions and lasts 3 months, whichever happens first, means you can get a renewal income rather than leave it open ended.
