You can select who can access your specific courses built in Thrive Apprentice when using the integration with WishList Member. So you can pick and choose who can access courses and include that in your sales and marketing material for your membership site.
Some of your courses may be intended for a select group of users while another course might be more widely accessible. You could offer a premium level with access to all courses and a lower tiered level with access to fewer courses.
This can all be handled using the Thrive Apprentice integration with WishList Member. This allows you to set protection for specific courses within Thrive Apprentice that can only be viewed if a user has been granted access using levels in WishList Member.
This means you can easily protect your courses so only the users you select can gain access to them.
You can allow users to register for the required level or you can add the required level to the user account using the options in WishList Member. Once a user has the required membership level, they can access any of the Thrive Apprentice courses you would like to provide them. You can check out all the details below.
Installing Thrive Apprentice
The first step towards using WishList Member and Thrive Apprentice is installing the Thrive Apprentice plugin. This can be done in the Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin section of WordPress.

More details on the installation process are available in the How to Use the Thrive Product Manager article on the Thrive Themes site.
Once you have downloaded the Thrive Product Manager plugin, you can upload and activate it on your site.
