GrooveMember Review 2021

A lot has changed since I’ve started using GrooveMember….

It went from extremely buggy to working smoothly and now mobile responsive.

A year ago I would have not even tried to transfer my existing courses over to GrooveMember.

Now all my courses are hosted on GrooveMember.

The reason?

GrooveMember integrates with other apps within the Groove.cm platform and helps you automate processes in your online business.

Let’s get into it.

GrooveMember Features

With GrooveMember, you can create, host and sell your online courses or membership subscriptions easily.

Deliver full courses with modules, lessons or categories and sub-categories formats.

GrooveMember has many features, let me walk you through how you can create a free membership site.

1. Membership Setup Wizard

When you create a new membership site, there’s a setup wizard that guides you through 6 steps in creating a course or membership.

The 6 steps are as follows:

  1. Basic info: Course or Membership site details
  2. Design: Add instructor details and customize your membership area with your logo and a featured image
  3. Builder: The builder is where you add content for your course lessons
  4. Comments: Enable or disable comments for each lesson and set approval of comments
  5. Access level: Configure your membership access levels or tiers
  6. Welcome: Send a default welcome email to your members with their access credentials
  7. Finish: Your membership site setup is complete


2. Instructor Setup

You can set up as many instructors as you like for each of your membership sites.

Simply enter in the instructor name, description and upload the instructor image.


3. Logo & Featured Image

  • Upload your logo: Recommended image size: 170px X 70px
  • Upload your course featured image: Recommended image size: 350px X 200px

4. Membership Builder

  • Customize each lesson further with drag and drop elements like buttons, text, images and embed videos from Vimeo, YouTube or use GrooveVideo to host your private content.
  • Upload pdf files and various media assets in your membership site for members to easily access.

5. Access Levels & Unlock Content

  • You can create multiple membership tiers, each with different content or courses and at price points with a secure login portal.
  • Give students and members instant access to your content
  • Drip feed content post after a specified number of days
  • or alternatively give access to lessons after a certain date.

6. Add New Members & Disable Access

  • If you set up a course and would like to provide access to some students for free, you can add them as a member easily.


7. Mobile Responsive

  • For the longest time, GrooveMember wasn’t responsive.
  • As of 6th of April 2021, GrooveMember is now mobile responsive making it easy for your students to learn on the go.
  • Here’s a peak of my own GrooveMember website:


8. Members Analytics

  • For now you can see how far along your students have progressed with course content however advanced analytics is coming soon.

GrooveMember Review by Aimee

A year ago, GrooveMember was really buggy but NOW it’s fully functional and mobile responsive. It’s improved significantly and it’s a definite YES from me. With single sign on, your students don’t need multiple passwords to access all their courses. Definitely sign up to the free account and test it out. However the biggest benefit is in Groove’s Lifetime deal as you can create UNLIMITED memberships saving you thousands every year in subscription fees.
