Today we’re thrilled to announce the Drip Content add-on for Restrict Content Pro. This Professional add-on allows you to define schedules for when your content will become available to members, instead of it becoming available immediately when they join. You can schedule content to become available days, months, or even years after a member joins. Drip scheduling is a great way to retain members and increase your revenue!
If you missed our preview post, let’s look at an example we used there. Let’s say you teach people how to play the guitar. Your lessons normally take 3 months to complete. Without dripped content, your members could sign up, download all the content, and cancel their subscription the next day. With a dripped schedule, you can release each lesson on the schedule you want and retain your members for the full 3 months.
Schedules can be defined for posts, pages, and other custom content types – such as online courses, Easy Digital Downloads products, and more. Schedules can also be defined for categories, tags, and other custom taxonomies. Taxonomy schedules allow you to define schedules for groups of content, making it quicker and easier to get your content schedules in place. You can use a combination of post and taxonomy schedules if you like, and you can define as few or many schedules as you need.
Drip Content also includes a shortcode you can use to display scheduled content that comes with a member’s subscription. It shows a list of posts and taxonomies that are available to the member. It also has the option of showing a list of items that are not yet available, along with the date they will become available to the member.
Drip Content for Restrict Content Pro is available today to all Professional and Ultimate license holders, and it can be downloaded from your account dashboard. Don’t have a Professional or Ultimate license? Get one today! If you have the Personal or Plus license, upgrade from your account dashboard and pay only the difference!
