Tribus has 20+ years of experience in building very large online membership sites/communities, learning platforms, gamification platforms and just about every possible tool or system needed to build a successful, growing and monetizable online community or what we like to call a Tribe.

We have worked with High Profile Clients/Organizations,, including the following to illustrate just some of them:

✅ Glenn Beck / Mercury One – Famous TV Personality and Broadcast Network

✅ The Shack Book & Movie – Over 25MM books sold, $15MM in the box office

✅ Jim Cockrum / Proven Amazon Course – 90K+ Students, 100+ hours of learning content

✅ David Barton – 190k+ Followers & Database, Massive Radio Program and Podcast

✅ Terri Savelle Foy – 125K+ Followers & Database, TV Personality and Author

We have Extensive Experience as membership and learning platform architects, designers and developers. Having pioneered elearning and membership sites in the early 2000s we have been building online communities for over two decades. Not only do we have all the technical skills necessary to build successful communities we also know what works and what doesn’t work in design, marketing, UX/UI and every aspect of learning design and membership engagement.

We have Expert Level Skills in all aspects of WordPress Multisite, LearnDash, BuddyPress, BBpress, Gamipress, BuddyBoss and all aspects of the themes, plugins and tools necessary to build a dynamic membership and learning site.  We also have expert level skills in most all email systems like MailChimp & Constant Contact as well as multiple CRMs such as Infuisonsoft / Keap and Groundhogg.


My career started back in the dial-up modem days when online communities, membership sites and learning platforms were just beginning to be developed and social media wasn’t even an idea yet. Since that time I have had the good fortune of working with over 220+ different business, organizations, influences, brands, Christian ministries, churches, direct sales companies, not-for-profits, authors, coaches and creatives to help build their online tribes. I have had over 100K+ paying recurring monthly members on the platforms I developed and millions of contacts and registered guests.

WordPress wasn’t even created until 2003 so I had to build all the CMS (Content Management Systems), CRM (Customer Relationships Management), LMS (Learning Management System / eLearning), custom shopping cart systems / recurring billing systems and email / autoresponder systems from scratch on Linux servers using PHP, MySQL and various other programming languages throughout the years. What this means for you is that I have deep programic, architectural and software knowledge of how these systems work. This is very important especially if you need custom development.

Yet, by 2015 I had completely switched to using WordPress as the main CMS, LearnDash as the primary LMS of choice and multiple CRMs from InfusionSoft/Keap to WordPress integrated CRMs to replace all of the custom code and became an expert in the complete WordPress ecosystem. I have clients that have as small as 100 member databases all the way into the millions of contacts in their systems all being supported by my enterprise level configuration and deployment of the WordPress ecosystem.


I look forward to working with you.

To Your Success,

Kyle Newton
