I've bought both the FB Member Lock and the SEO Booster plugin and am very happy with both.

I've used Member Lock on three separate web sites now. What I can say is that with the exception of when I have used paid ad campaigns, then in all cases I have seen growth of my 'members' at a much higher rate than with any other method of getting optins, or people willing to connect using their Facebook details. And obviously in the case with FB member Lock, you get the proper opt-in anyway to your auto responder with their primary email address.rather than one they may choose to give you in a standard squeeze system.

The installation was very easy despite having to create a new Facebook App to integrate with the plugin (that the site visitor connects to). The user guide is very professional. First of all it's presented in a very stylish way so it's nice to read if that makes sense - extremely high quality in both the appearance and the content. It makes setting up the plug-in a breeze and I'd say you can have the plugin uploaded, the app created, settings made and your first content protected, published and waiting for potential 'members' to uncover within 15 minutes - and probably less than 10 minutes once I'd done it the first time.

What I particularly like about Mike and Daniel's products is that they all seem to be very well integrated. This is important for me because you know that when one is updated then it will be tested against all the others. In fact only recently with them developing the new Facebook Review plugin for gathering reviews and sharing them via facebook, they made some discoveries of how the new review plugin could work with rich snippets, then cross pollenated' this functionality into their SEO Booster plugin too. They also have integrated some of the functionality between Member Lock and the review plugin, so content can be unlocked with this plugin by people leaving a review on FB Review Engine. So having these work in harmony will be very important and I'm sure will mean I won't have issues with plugins interfering with each other as you can get sometimes.

Support has been good with both products and updates have been released to address small issues along the way.

If I have anything to say negatively about FB Member Lock, it's probably that a little extra background might be helpful on setting up things like the auto update and the birthday message. I'm talking here more about how this may be received by fans - so ideas for the style/types of message to use. Of course this is a very broad area because each business type will have its own style - but maybe a help video could be created using experiences and feedback from users

So many people these days are weary of posting their email address into a squeeze page. Whereas Facebook Member Lock is a much more subtle and unobtrusive way to deliver premium content, build a member base and receptive optin list all at once, without actually having use a squeeze page.

With a little imagination there are other ways to take advantage of the membership status, such as restrict comment writing to members only, effectively blocking all spammers. FB member lock is a no brainer.

How many times you bought a wordpress plugin, only to found it useless when wordpress upgrade to a new version because of incompatibility?

I bought wpfacepages (another plugin by Mike and Daniel) on May 2011.
Since then, they have major upgrade to version 2.0 on June 2011, then to 2.1, then 2.2.
Version 3.0 launched on August 2011, then updated on Sept by version 3.1 and 3.2
Version 3.7 came on Sept 2011, then 3.8.1 and 3.8.2 on Dec 2011
When facebook come with timeline, they also upgrade it.
I got version 4.2 Facebook timeline ready on March 2012.
I only mention some of the versions, not all of them.
But I believe this is a proof that you can trust Mike and Daniel for a wordpress plugin.

Now I have WPFacePages along with WPSocial FB Member Lock and 2 other plugins (a total of 4) from Mike & Daniel, ALL with developer license :)

I've been using FB Members lock for 3 months now. I only lock premium posts after providing 350 odd words as an open post. I obviously lose some readers who won't accept the terms of unlocking my content (my ability to post on their FB wall's etc etc) but those who do accept turn out to be people who actually want a relationship with me.

In other words it's a nice filter that's not as obtrusive as asking for name and email, obtrusive enough however, to filter out internet trolls looking for free information who have no interest in connecting. What I am left with are real people who I notify by name, on their FB walls when publishing subsequent posts I feel they may want to read.

I recommend this product for anyone looking to build a list of subscribers they can connect with on a deeper level than email subscribers. This obviously translates into more sales but whats more valuable, is the social proof referrals it facilitates. I spend a lot of money on online advertising and I tell anyone reading this for FREE, one social proof referral (from trusted sources) is worth 200 cold leads from ad clicks.

Membership sites are one of the most profitable business models available. The hardest part about is getting people to register the first time... but this plugin makes it SO easy, it's making me feel guilty.

I almost don't want to share this with you guys but you've given me the keys to an untapped kingdom... I set up a test membership site for a very obscure niche and then set it up as a tab on a new facebook page, built a few likes to the page with ads and magic started to happen.

Virtually every "like" it gets ends up converting into a free member. The member list is growing up fast and steady and a some of them are giving the paid option a try. I think it's time to take this "test" seriously and ramp up the marketing!

Can this plugin be used with any theme?

Yes, you can use the plugin with any theme.

Is it required to have a ssl certificate installed to get that plugin working?

No, you do not need an SSL Certificate for this. Just a Free Facebook App which takes just a few minutes to setup.

What is the License for WP Social FB Member Lock being sold here?

This purchase of WP Social FB Member Lock will give you the Developer License which gives you the rights to sell the plugin on blogs you develop for resale or for Client sites. You may NOT sell WP Social FB Member Lock by itself with the Developer License. It can only be distributed on Blogs you build for resale or paying clients.

Do I need a Facebook Fan Page to use FB Member Lock?

No, all you need to do is create a Free Facebook APP which only takes a few minutes.

How does FB Member Lock Increase Social Traffic and Social Media Signals for my blog?

When you post a Welcome Message or a Member Status Update to Your Member's Facebook Walls, they see it and all their Friends see it (depending on their Privacy settings). 20 Members seeing Welcome messages could mean that 2000, 3000, 4000 or more "friends" see your message and the link to your blog. This is MORE powerful than a Like because it will generate Social Traffic and Google will see the Social Signals from the messages and the conversations generated from them, repopulating and sharing your message and links back to your Blog across Facebook and then into Google through Facebook's Open Graph technology. This is extremely powerful and can result in 10 times more Social Media traffic then a Like. You can then use Member Status Update to ask them to "like" your Fan Page to receive Updates as well.

Can I use my Aweber Mailing list with this plugin to get more Optins?

You can use any Mailing List provider you want. As long as you can create the HTML for an Optin form with your service, you can input it into FB Member Lock and it will automatically send Optins to your list via your Form code and your Members will never see or have to fill in any forms. This works with Aweber, Getresponse, iContact, Mailchimp, and More!

How does FB Member Lock Register New Users in WordPress?

It uses Facebook Connect just like hundreds of thousands of other sites across the Web. All a visitor to your site has to do is click on the Facebook Connect icon on your blog to Join Your Membership, then they use their Facebook account to instantly register as a new user in your WordPress blog. They will be registered as the User Role: Facebook Members. Simultaneously, their email address is connected to your Optin Form (just like as if they filled it in) and they will receive your Confirmation email from your Mailing list provider and they will instantly receive a Welcome Message on their Facebook Wall. Any Plugin you use on your blog that manages User Accounts will then be able to manage these new Users as well as the FB Member Lock plugin itself.

Is Facebook Connect safe for my Blog Visitors? Will they Use it?

Definitely. As of 2010 there were already over 250 Million Facebook Connect users and now in 2012 it is already estimated to be up over 400 Million. More and more sites across the Web use Facebook Connect as a part of their Site and Lead generation strategy every day. Web users are used to seeing it and they Trust Facebook and will Click and Connect 250% more often then they would fill in an Optin Form. Split test it and see for yourself. This Plugin could possibly double and or triple the optins you get on your Blog versus traditional Squeeze Page Optin forms and that is just using FB Member Lock for that one strategy. This Plugin can be used for countless strategies using ANY Content on Your Blog.

Are there setup and training videos or manuals for these plugins?

Yes, we have an online manual and tutorial videos for all our products in the download area.
