[PODCAST] Episode 4: Micah Mitchell

In the fourth episode of the Memberships and Courses Podcast, Tracy Childers interviews Micah Mitchell about how he metamorphosed from a consultant to an entrepreneur and helped built hundreds if not thousands of membership sites and online courses.

Micah is a serial entrepreneur. He was one of the earliest Infusionsoft consultants and helped some of the popular names in the membership space set up their membership programs. He co-founded a popular membership site plugin Memberium and owns WishList.

"We’ve tried a couple of other membership tools that were part of packages that we’d invested in. But nothing can compare to WishList Member. I know that there’s a lot of cool stuff out there that people have been building over the years. But when it comes to customization, if you use WordPress, you can’t touch this. Obviously, I’m super biased, but we’ve made millions of dollars because of this product."

I have moved [WishList Member] into my top list of options for people. The new WishList Member packs a punch! And the price for WishList Member makes it a fantastic offer.

WishList Member integrates with the tools I use TODAY. And they’re so eager to integrate with tools that are coming out. It’s amazing how they do it actually. If I was going to be buying a membership plugin, today… for me, I would go with WishList Member.
