Site Members: About the Members Area

9 min read
A Members Area is the ideal tool to make your visitors engage, as it creates a community around your site. People who sign up to your Member's Area get their own account where they can see all their information while getting to know other members. 
Some Wix apps like Wix Stores, Wix Bookings, and Wix Forum automatically add the Members Area to your site. 

The Member's Area structure

The Members Area consists of several parts you can tailor to your needs. Customize each element so it looks and feels like a genuine part of the design.

Increasing customer engagement

Using Wix's business solutions like Wix Stores, Wix Bookings or Wix Events? The Member's Area is a great tool to create a real connection with your customers and make them return. 
Customers who create an account on your site get much more control of their transactions; Many of the Wix business solutions include member pages, giving customers the option to track and see the information that's stored about them (e.g., their address, payment method details, etc.)

Creating and strengthening your community

Whether you've created a site for your business or other purposes, the Member's Area can help you create a community around it as well. It can also be an online space for existing communities like educational institutions, groups around a topic of interest or any other type of group.
Click a social Wix app below to learn what it adds to your Member's Area: 
When using the social apps listed above, a Profile page is automatically added to your Member's Area so members can get to know each other. Every member decides for themselves whether this page is public or private, and what info should be visible. 

Creating exclusive member content

You're not confined to the pages you get by default with your Members Area – create exclusive pages for your members with content only they can access. You can make these pages public so they’re available to all members, or limit them to a select few (specific member roles or paying members).

Designing your own personalized space

Once you add a Member's Area, a lot of the design work is done for you as the colors and fonts automatically match your site's theme. However, you can tailor the entire experience to your look and voice – from signup and login, to the Area's design and content. 

Managing your members

Easily manage all of your site members in your members list in the dashboard. You can view detailed information about each member on this list as well as approving, deleting or blocking members. From here, you can also assign different roles or badges to make specific members stand out.
