Create unlimited courses and membership levels all in one login area (this leads to more cross selling and upsells, politely)
Allow your customers to update their credit card and make payments directly (this saves you time administering, and earns you more money, too!)
Automation wizard helps you create tags, pages, and even webinars directly within your members area
Create a user directory to allow members of your website to find and connect with each other.
Create live Google Hangouts in just seconds and turn the recordings into your premium programs
Combine your affiliate dashboard into your core membership site, so your affiliates just need to login to one area to grab their links, see their stats, and promote your products
Build the excitement of affiliate contests by displaying a Leaderboard with a list of the top-selling affiliates for your products.
Now you can manage user permissions and merge duplicate users easily without ever having to leave your website.
Securely host all kinds of content like PDFs, mp3s, and videos
Use this feature to add one-click upsells and create a credit system that allows users to earn and spend in-site currency on their own.
Use this to set up a “surprise” offer that’s randomly promoted, split test two or more content types, or find out which upsell works the best, for example.
Create a sense of urgency during a time-sensitive promotion – or use it as an event reminder for your membership site users.
Works with any WordPress theme – but comes with 3 customizable Headway templates, and live preview editing
Easily host tens of thousands of members (or even 100,000!) without slowing your site down or experiencing any login issues, so you can keep growing your business without limits.
You’ve been around the block, and you’ve logged into your fair share of membership sites and course platforms.
Now it’s time to design your membership area… and you want yours to be a cut above the rest.
At the very least, you don’t want to deal with any tech headaches: handling customer support issues because of broken login functionality, manually updating credit cards for failed payments, or explaining to your customers that your site is slow because of the way your website was set up.
When we were setting up our own course membership site, we ran into some major tech issues… and as seasoned developers we realized that the tools that were already on the market were just not built to scale and handle over 10,000 members.
Our website would routinely slow to a crawl, members would email us telling us they couldn’t login, and sometimes our host even blocked logins because of too many attempts (all caused by the plugin we were using at the time).
We looked at the other WordPress plugins on the market that “said they integrated” with platforms like Infusionsoft, Ontraport, and ActiveCampaign… but in reality these tools didn’t pull in the rich “tag data” that these CRMs are known for.
That individual user data is half the reason many of us to turn to more robust systems like Infusionsoft, Ontraport, and ActiveCampaign so it felt like a waste not to be able to use it to customize the membership site experience.
Other WordPress plugins force you into non-intuitive designs that end up looking like everyone else’s website… At AmbitionAlly, we believe that being unique and standing out in your market is a great way to grow your business and have a strong brand recognition that lasts.
That’s why we designed AccessAlly to integrate natively with ActiveCampaign, Infusionsoft, and Ontraport.
If you’ve got high standards when it comes to user experience for your customers (like us!) then you’ll love that AccessAlly…
- Integrates with any WordPress theme, so you can make any design you can dream up a reality…
- Auto-creates new users, so you can easily port members over from your old membership site.
- Generates and automatically sends an email with login information to new users (both paid customers and free sign ups if you want to offer a free course or “locked content”)
- Lets people reset their own passwords, so you don’t have to login to your CRM and manually change passwords ever again (woohoo!)
- Hosts as many courses and programs as you want inside one members area, so your customers don’t have to keep track of all their logins – and you can cross sell between all your offers (sweet sounds of cash!)
- Saves you from meticulous tasks by automatically creating all of the Infusionsoft/Ontraport/ActiveCampaign tags you’ll need for new courses and programs you create
- Allows you to run “timed release” courses where pages unlock on an individual evergreen schedule, or as a whole for a live program
- Takes care of pesky recurring payment issues, by letting your customers add or update credit card details so you don’t have to chase them down again and you get to keep more of the money you earn
- Displays future payments and past invoices, so no one is confused or surprised about upcoming payments or what content they’ve purchased
- Shows off each of your courses in a badge format that indicates if a users has access to a course or not, so you can sell more of your programs without being pushy
- Houses multi-media courses of all kinds, including videos, PDFs, mp3s into customizable modules and pages
- And that’s just for starters – check out the full list of features here…
- Four customizable theme templates: a light business theme, a darker business theme, a health focused theme, and a spiritual theme.
- All of the pages and layouts you will need for a rocking membership site: home page, program overview, module page, main navigation and account menu.
- A Headway Themes based site that’s ready to use in minutes instead of weeks! It’s as easy as assigning the layouts to your pages, binding the menus and uploading your content.
These bonus themes are created with the Headway Visual Editor for advanced customization, so you’ve got a starting point to unleash your creativity for your unique site. No coding skills required!
Plus, we include step-by-step tutorials to walk you through customizing your new AccessAlly membership site with our bonus Headway Theme templates. Just change a few colors and fonts, or go all-in and make the site totally yours!
“From the bottom of my heart – thank you so much for everything. All of the members that logged in this morning to peek at the site were blown away by how great it looks.
This plugin is going to be so helpful to so many people! It’s like a dream come true and I’ve tried so many that didn’t work out right and I couldn’t make them look pretty or they just didn’t give me what I needed to go pro-looking with my membership area. I now feel like I have my own really cool spot to send peeps to that looks professional and the objectives part from ProgressAlly is awesome too!!!“
“I was literally just wishing for this… you guys are SLAYING it over there. AccessAlly has helped me generate around $460K of revenue this year and I am just a massive fan of everything you’re doing. THANK YOU!!!
My courses are pretty complex in their operation, we have drip-feeding, e-mail sequencing, follow-ups, reminders for teaching-assistants, and more. Having the entire course operation run through Infusionsoft makes it possible to automate my business to insane levels, and AccessAlly then allows me to EASILY plug my customers right into that process.
The #1 thing about the plugin that helps me make money is its dead-simple integration with Infusionsoft. I think more people should know about AccessAlly!“
“What a godsend AccessAlly has been for my team! Previous membership site plug-ins were difficult to program and integrate, and they produced what felt like a never ending stream of glitches.
Now, I’m able to host all of my speaking membership content on my WordPress site through AccessAlly, we never have access or loading issues, and the platform is so user friendly that even my non-designer/non-programmer team members can handle the backend. I’m so glad we made the investment!“
“I have learned SO much from Nathalie Lussier that I will be applying in my business for years to come.
Then there is the genius which is AccessAlly which has allowed me to customize a membership website for the Alinga tribe using its robust infrastructure! AccessAlly feels like a reliable business partner that has your back, and knows what you need even before you know it! Super excited to have such an intuitive business partner! I know this is the beginning of a great partnership.“
“When I was looking for a solution to host my seasonal style program, there was nothing out there that offered the features that AccessAlly does. My program quickly grew from 500 to 5,000 women participating in the first year. The systems that I cobbled together were no longer able to support it.
AccessAlly gives me the flexibility I need to deliver my time released content and saves me time by automatically sending my customers their log in information and allowing them to reset their own passwords.
One of my favorite features is the badge format that has boosted sales for my other programs. It’s such a relief to have a reliable membership solution that allows for sustainable growth while at the same time increases sales.“
“When I was planning a complete rebrand of my program the e-Course Launch Formula I looked at pretty much everything on the market as I had some very specific needs.
The reason I chose AccessAlly was because it integrates seamlessly with Infusionsoft, has some awesome learning management functionality like checklists and also has the potential to become a membership hub for my business with multiple programs in the one place.
I’ve used other Infusionsoft specific platforms but this really is the best on the market. My team has also successfully added a great membership directory for my students to find and connect with potential affiliates and contributors for their e-Course. I am so glad that I picked AccessAlly and my students are over the moon at what it offers for their learning experience!“
Take an inside peek into some of the beautiful membership sites that are built with AccessAlly on our showcase page.
AccessAlly comes with top of the line responsive, top-shelf tech support. Robin himself oversees the process. He is directly involved with making sure customers’ questions are answered and their problems are resolved. (Very few developers stay involved at this level.) Our policy is to respond to technical requests within 24 hours. But so far our stats say the response rate has typically been less than 12 hours.
Most plugins expect you to just “figure it out” as you go, but we believe that our special sauce is to design software that’s both intuitive… and that comes with simple instructions, so you’re never left scratching your head. We’ve included super simple and easy to follow instructional videos, that’ll have you up and running with AccessAlly in no time. We get constant compliments that our video tutorials are actually useful, and we’re proud of it!

Can I use AccessAlly without ActiveCampaign, Infusionsoft or Ontraport Pro?
AccessAlly only works with ActiveCampaign, Infusionsoft, Ontraport Pro, and Ontraport Team. It does not currently integrate with Ontraport Basic. Membership sites can mean different things to different people, but to explain why we built AccessAlly this way you’ll notice that it handles these three things:
1. Access: different members can see different content. This is one of the core strengths of AccessAlly, and it is set up using ActiveCampaign, Infusionsoft, and Ontraport tags for fine control.
2. Client automation: you do not want to be manually generating passwords when hundreds of people are signing up everyday. Client usernames and passwords are securely stored in ActiveCampaign, Infusionsoft, and Ontraport.
3. Triggers: when someone purchases a product, goes through a funnel, or has a payment fail… A follow-up reaction is triggered. This is where Infusionsoft and Ontraport come in, and AccessAlly simply reacts to the triggers by providing access, revoking access, etc. ActiveCampaign does not currently offer payment processing.
Does AccessAlly use Ontraport or Infusionsoft’s shopping cart and order forms as a way for members to pay for content?
Yes and no. You can use the built-in Infusionsoft and Ontraport shopping cart or order forms to sell products and courses, and AccessAlly will be notified of the sales and automatically unlock content and send a welcome login email. If someone has already made a purchase through the Infusionsoft/Ontraport order forms, they can login to your AccessAlly membership site and update their credit card on file and apply payments toward outstanding balances directly.
Once they’re logged in, a member can purchase additional courses without going through a traditional Infusionsoft/Order form. AccessAlly has an advanced 1-click upsell functionality that allows people to purchase directly without entering their credit card details again.
Is it possible to preview some content for non-paid members? Or offer teasers to show what people would get if they upgraded to a paid membership?
Yes! We offer a few different tag-based shortcodes, where you decide what content to display to people who haven’t paid for that content yet. You can use this feature to show a teaser, to give more information about a course, and you can also include the 1-click upsell link so that people can upgrade within that page if they’re ready to go.
What if we have more than just programs? Can we customize the title in the navigation menus to be something like Content and then include a “program” that has all of our archived call recordings?
Yes! AccessAlly’s bonus themes are fully customizable, and you can design your offerings in any format that works for you. You can have programs, courses, kits, and anything else you can imagine. We use AccessAlly to deliver our software products, training products, and even our affiliate section – and it’s easy to customize what each page looks like with Headway Themes or any theme you choose.
Can I use AccessAlly on multiple sites?
One license of AccessAlly is good for one membership site. Ideally, you’d have all of your courses in one members area (which enables cross selling and is easier for your clients to login to one place). However, if you have more than one business or you want to use AccessAlly on different domains, additional site licenses are $59/month each.
Can you tell us more about the AmbitionAlly development team?
Of course! We understand that when you invest in software, you want it to be continuously improved and supported for years to come. The good news is that our AmbitionAlly development team is growing. The company was founded by a bona fide software engineer, and boasts two full-time expert developers, a full-time software-savvy project manager, along with support and marketing team members.
More importantly, we’re dedicated to making AccessAlly the best learning environment platform we possibly can… because we use it for all of our products, too! We’re constantly improving the software, and building out new features based on what our customers ask for.
If I have one program, can I have some content drip-feeding for some people and for other people give the access to all the content?
Yes! You could set up two different ActiveCampaign/Infusionsoft/Ontraport campaigns or put the sequence in one campaign, and just apply a different “kickstart” tag or order process based on how you want the content to be released.
If I want some fancy design how easy will it be to customize my site? Is this something I would need a coder for or would I just need the design elements?
Great question! We offer 4 ready-to-use, pre-styled templates that are compatible with Headway Themes and are ready to be uploaded into your site. Each of these templates can be used as-is, or you’re free to customize them further, using Headway’s Visual Editor, which is pretty user-friendly with a straightforward, drag-and-drop interface.
When styling certain custom features, AccessAlly also includes a live preview that will help you with the design of the login widget, webinar, customer operation button, and a series of profile-related controls.
However, if you wanted to change the entire set up or organization of the layout, then you might want to hire someone for a few hours to get it to look exactly how you want it. Consider hiring one of our AccessAlly savvy AmbitionAlly Certified Partners.
Are members able to handle upgrades / downgrades / cancellations for themselves through AccessAlly?
AccessAlly makes use of ActiveCampaign/Infusionsoft/Ontraport tags to determine access levels, and you can add tags through links on an AccessAlly site. That means that as long as ActiveCampaign/Infusionsoft/Ontraport tags are up to date, AccessAlly will make sure the correct content is displayed for each user. So customers can upgrade, downgrade and make switches inside AccessAlly, you just need to set up the corresponding campaigns in Infusionsoft, ActiveCampaign, or Ontraport to add / remove / switch tags.
What monitoring / chasing happens for monthly subscriptions which are unpaid?
Infusionsoft and Ontraport will detect when a payment fails, and you can set up a campaign sequence that will email your customers letting them know to update their credit card inside your AccessAlly site. They simply click a link, update their credit card details, and they can even process the payment themselves. We do recommend having a few of these follow-up emails since just one email could be overlooked or forgotten.
Is AccessAlly meant to lay over CustomerHub or is it a stand alone application that integrates with Infusionsoft?
AccessAlly is a standalone WordPress plugin that integrates directly with Infusionsoft/Ontraport. You won’t need CustomerHub when you use AccessAlly!
I currently use Infusionsoft and Samcart checkout – is Access Ally compatible with the Samcart shopping cart?
Yes, AccessAlly is compatible with SamCart! All of the “hooks” for AccessAlly are handled within Infusionsoft/Ontraport/ActiveCampaign, so that makes it easy to integrate.
I am considering investing in Infusionsoft/Ontraport very soon, but unsure whether to go for the basic level or the level with eCommerce. I intend on using AccessAlly for my membership site, and delivery of my course content. Can you use AccessAlly with the basic level of Infusionsoft/Ontraport/ActiveCampaign?
AccessAlly can work with all levels of an Infusionsoft account and Ontraport Pro and Ontraport Team. If you are considering an Infusionsoft account, I recommend talking to a certified consultant or one of our Certified Partners, as they might be able to provide set you up at a reduced rate.
1. We’re firm believers of doing things right, so you’re never stuck doing “throw away” work. The beauty of a CRM system is that it automates the delivery process, so as a business owner, you can focus on marketing and creating content. With a simple PayPal button, you might find yourself stuck in fulfilling orders and sending welcome emails in a year or so, and at that time, you might not have the luxury to set up an automated system.
2. The basic level of Infusionsoft should have everything you need to get started. The affiliate aspect is nice, but it is not a “must-have”. The good thing is that you can always add that on when the time and cashflow is right.
What does each module need to have tags?
Inside AccessAlly, we’ve built a course creation Wizard that walks you through this process. AccessAlly will create the tags in Infusionsoft/Ontraport/ActiveCampaign automatically, and apply them to the right pages in WordPress. If you already have tags you want to re-use, you can just select them from Infusionsoft/Ontraport’s list and automatically apply them that way.
With the credit card updating feature you have, how does that work exactly? Aren’t the credit card details stored within Infusionsoft or Ontraport?
Yes, the details of the credit cards are still stored in Infusionsoft/Ontraport, but we’ve made it possible to update these via AccessAlly. You won’t actually see the full credit card details in the AccessAlly interface, just the last 4 digits so people can see which cards they’ve added. But they can add new cards, and they can process payments on outstanding balances directly. This is awesome, and has saved us a ton of time – because there really wasn’t an integrated way to get people to do this in Infusionsoft/Ontraport before.
I have an existing membership site. How much work will it be to port my individual members over to an AccessAlly membership site?
AccessAlly can automatically create a batch of new users, as long as their information is already inside Infusionsoft, ActiveCamapign, or Ontraport. All you’ll need to do is decide which contacts need a profile, then upload that list to AccessAlly. With a few clicks of the mouse, your new users will be ready to go.
With this feature, you can also opt to keep the same username and passwords for each of the users, which will definitely help to streamline the transition for your existing customers.
“I’ve checked the time delayed content methodology – and it’s AWESOME that this is purely based on Infusionsoft/Ontraport/ActiveCampaign tags.
I love it, a breeze to implement!“
“I just want to say how genius it is to have a membership site where AccessAlly sells your stuff for you!
It’s effortless selling. I’ve seen my sales on other products I have go up just because they’re sitting there and visible when students log in!
We should run the stats to see what the sales increase is but its like impulse purchases in the check out line. Brilliant! I didn’t foresee that benefit when we switched over. Thank you so much!“
“I found AccessAlly to be a wonderful way to present all my programs and ebooks. I have already made over 8 sales by members seeing my programs while opting in for the free mini course.
It is also super easy to set-up and I love that I can track what my visitors are watching and that it all links back to Infusionsoft! I have mentioned it to tons of friends and colleagues as I can’t think of a better way to run a membership program than with AccessAlly!“
“After using countless software and integrations for my digital programs, I can say AccessAlly is the most intuitive, easy, beautifully designed, customer-focused option you’ll find for a membership site.
Not only do I love AccessAlly, but I am obsessed with ProgressAlly too. I’m always looking for ways to gamify my clients’ experience so ProgressAlly was an add-on I knew I wanted to have. Our clients are raving about the checklists and progress tracking we built into each module.
Since there are no membership site headaches to deal with, I can stay laser focused on helping more people share their message.“
