Step 1: Convert your website into a membership site

The easiest way to sell your online mediation course is to convert your website into a membership site with a tool like MemberSpace. This allows you to lock access to your online course pages and accept payments from students.

By adding a membership paywall to your website, students will have to signup and pay before they access to your course content. Otherwise, they see a popup like this that restricts them from going any further.

Step 2: Add your course content to pages on your website

One of the benefits of hosting your course on your own website is the flexibility to structure it in a way that best serves your students. Most meditation courses include a mix of:

  • Module/lesson pages that include your course content, like videos or presentation slides
  • Downloadable resources, like guided meditation audio files, meditation music, or ebooks on meditation techniques
  • Quizzes that serve as a checkpoint after each lesson or module
  • Certificates for completing your course or earning a professional certification

Step 3: Lock your online course pages for paying students

After adding your meditation course content to your website, it’s time to ensure that only paying students can access it. Using your MemberSpace account, simply add the URLs for each of your course pages. If your pages are organized under a single category page (such as, you can save time by locking them all at once.

Restrict access to your meditation course pages one by one, or all at once by adding an asterisk to the end of your page URL.

✨ Business Tip:  To make it easy for your students to navigate your meditation course lessons, be sure to enable Member Menu when locking your pages. This will add a floating button/menu in the bottom right corner of your website that students can use to seamlessly navigate through the different sections of your course. 

Step 4: Set a price for your meditation course

After you’ve locked your meditation course pages, you can choose from one-time, multiple, or recurring payments, or even offer your course for free. MemberSpace has a built-in Stripe integration that makes it easy to securely and quickly accept payments on your website via credit card, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. 

You can even set up multiple pricing tiers to offer varying levels of access to your course. For example, you could offer:

  • A free tier where students can access the first lesson or two, requiring them to upgrade to get access to the full course
  • A premium tier where students get access to the full course and a private forum
  • A VIP tier where students get access to your course, plus the private forum group and live-streamed workshops
You can sell your meditation course for a one-time fee, or create a subscription so students get access to your course and other member perks, like a private community forum, for a monthly fee.

Step 5: Add a signup link to your website

With your website set up and pricing set up, it’s time to start promoting your meditation course. Grab the signup link from the Pricing tab in your MemberSpace dashboard and place it throughout your website and marketing channels. Here are some ideas on where to add your link!

  • A “Buy Now” button on your sales page
  • Your website header/footer
  • Email marketing campaigns
  • Social media posts and profiles
When your signup link is clicked, students will be prompted to create an account and pay for access to your meditation course.
