His website design for The Aware Show really captured my personality, and his project management skills kept my entire team on track. The beautiful summits he put together helped us to grow our list and expand our audience. Caelan is always positive and keeps a positive outlook on life!”
Community Membership Website with eCommerce Shopping Cart
- Membership website cross-selling hundreds of information products
- Secure mp3 file storage for 3000 episodes of audio interviews
- Content displayed based on user’s membership level access
As the host of the Aware Show, Lisa Garr has interviewed thousands of best-selling authors on her nationally syndicated radio show over the past 15 years. Her library of 3,000 audio interviews was augmented by here regular production of interview tele-summits, adding hundreds of video interviews into her library. Making content was not a problem for Lisa – she was trying to find a way to keep everything organized and easy to find for her customers.
The Aware Show Website – Before
Stellar Platforms recommended a members-only community website on a dedicated WordPress installation at https://theawareshow.com/store, designed to match the look and feel of the main site, but housing the media files separately on Amazon S3. We used a series of sophisticated database management display tools to display thousands interviews, including:
These four tools all worked seamlessly within the WordPress CMS, letting the team create a secure, members-only environment.
The Aware Show Website – After
We used Toolset to design a customizable database display with both custom CSS and the native Avada theme functions. By doing so, we were able to create specialized toggles that showcased the titles, air dates, and guest names of each episode. When customers opened the toggles, viewers were able to see the multimedia player, episode description, guest headshot, and biography.
Inside the rest of this members-only website, Lisa’s community members were able to see and purchase product packages, interview summit replays, and coaching courses. Once logged in, customers would only be able to view the premium content they had purchased. If they attempted to view content they had not purchased, they saw only the sales page, and the offer to buy. This encouraged users to navigate through the site to find related interesting content.
Creating a membership community solved The Aware Show’s digital organization problems. By charging her viewers a monthly access fee to view her full archive of interviews, the membership community also provided Lisa with an entirely new passive revenue stream for her business.

Author, filmmaker, and public speaker
“I’ve had many sites built over the past 10 years. This was, hands down, the best experience in regards to efficiency, design, and back-end mechanics. Caelan is easy to talk to, patient, knows what he’s doing and can execute in a timely manner. It was a pleasure.”
Website redesign and onboarding autoresponder
- Website redesign clarifying her brand and her main offerings
- 7-day autoresponder series developed from best blog posts
- Copywriting, graphic design, website design, email marketing
Robin Jay is a well-known public speaker and published author, and serves as President of the Las Vegas Convention Speakers Bureau. Like many content creators, she had lots of projects – as a filmmaker, a coach, a speaker and speaker’s agent, but she did not have a website capable of capturing leads or promoting her brand. For all the different facets of her career, she had difficulty in clarifying her offer and her call-to-action.
Through a series of coaching sessions defining her customer avatars, we determined that the ideal email subscriber would be someone who is interested in learning how to improve their networking skills.
Using content already on her blog, we repurposed her existing content into a 7-day autoresponder series and loaded the copy into emails in Mailchimp.
