About the Company:
Welcome! My name is Adrian Ling and I’m the author and developer of all the software tools you see here – easyClickmate, easyClickGuard, easyClick404, CBListAutomator and many other software scripts you see on this site (and its sister sites).
I live in sunny Malaysia with my wife, 2 kids and a dog which we adopted from the street.
I came from a technical background – graduated with a Bsc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 1996 and I love tinkering with computers.
While most of my friends went to Penang and worked with Intel and AMD (we were a ‘highly sought’ bunch of engineering geeks), I went to Kuala Lumpur because I was more interested in computers instead of microchips.
My first job: Junior System Administrator (Slackware Linux – on 13 floppies)
2nd Job (2000): Technical Specialist – web application design, development and system integration.
3rd Job? …. Nah …. I left the corporate world in 2003 🙂
While I enjoyed my job tinkering with servers, codes, apps, etc …. my perspective on life and work changed when my first kid was born in 2001.
Putting in 12+hrs a day in the office is out of the question. I did not want to be an absentee dad! So I started exploring other options and started this site in early 2002.
Today, we (my lovely wife Tricia and our 2 kids and dog) have a comfortable lifestyle – debt free and relatively stress free. (having kids can be a little stressful at times)
About the Product:
Subscription Mate™ is incredibly easy to install and easy to use, even for beginners. Yet this membership site plugin is powerful enough to please the seasoned pros. Read on to see what I mean.
Five Membership Levels Deliver Flexibility. You probably only need one, two or maybe three membership levels (such as bronze, silver and gold). But with Subscription Mate you enjoy the flexibility of offering up to five membership levels at five different price points. You can even offer a free membership to build your prospect mailing list!
Content Dripping Saves You Time. You can run a successful membership site without being chained to your computer! Simply upload all your content, tag it so Subscription Mate™ knows which members can access it, and set the content-dripping interval – it works just like an autoresponder!
Membership Management Made Easy. Just log into your WordPress dashboard to see your membership list and manage your members. You can manually upgrade members, give away paid memberships for free, and do more with just a couple clicks of your mouse – it’s easy!
Protects a Variety of Content. Not only can you protect your posts from unauthorized access, but Subscription Mate™ also protects your downloadable files. That means you can keep your members-only PDFs, videos, audios and other downloadable content away from people who haven’t paid for a membership.
Integrates Easily With Your Favorite Autoresponder. This feature allows you to quickly and easily build your mailing list. Whenever someone takes advantage of a free membership, Subscription Mate automatically adds them to your autoresponder (such as Aweber or GetResponse). This is hands-free list building at its finest!
Uses Clickbank’s Payment Platform. Subscription Mate™ seamlessly integrates with Clickbank.com, so you can run your recurring membership site using a trusted, reliable and powerful payment processor.
Integrates With Clickbank’s Affiliate Tracking. Because Subscription Mate™ works with Clickbank.com, you automatically get to take advantage of Clickbank’s affiliate platform. They handle everything for you, from affiliate tracking to paying your affiliates.
Paypal Support Included! Prefer to use Paypal to handle the payments? We got you covered. This nifty plugin now supports Paypal. (note: Paypal does not have a built-in affiliate platform like ClickBank )
Free Tutorial. Installing and using Subscription Mate™ is easy with the step-by-step user guide which includes screenshots. But if you need extra help, it’s always just a click away.
Free Support. Order now and you get free support through our Help Desk. Whether you have a question about installation or you’re wondering about membership management, our customer service staff are eager to help you.
Multi-Domain License. Need to set up multiple membership sites? No problem – you can install the plugin on as many domains as you need for one low price.
No Coding Knowledge or Tech Skills Required. Subscription Mate™ uses WordPress shortcodes, meaning you don’t need to have any tech skills in order to install and use Subscription Mate. Just upload it to your server, activate it through your WP dashboard and you’ll soon be ready to start accepting members!
Custom Welcome Pages. You decide what your members see when they first join your site.
Custom Error Pages. You also get to create custom error messages for members who’re trying to access information that’s not available for their membership level. This gives you a great opportunity to upsell an upgraded membership!
Free Updates For Life. You can be assured of having the latest issue of this version of the plugin since you get free updates for life.
Works With Current WP Installations. Subscription Mate™ works with WordPress versions 2.9.x right through 3.3.1 (which is the current version). Plus it works with ANY WordPress theme that allows you to use plugins.
Backed by Two Well-Known Marketers. This plugin was created jointly by membership expert Jimmy D. Brown (who introduced the “Fixed Term Membership (FTM) Site” concept to the world) and respected software developer Adrian Ling (who is the developer and marketer of other Clickbank scripts including the widely popular Easyclickmate) They put their years of experience together to create a membership site plugin with a perfect blend of powerful features and usability. and considering their background, there is no better duo than Jimmy and Adrian who will help you to make more money with YOUR own membership site.
