The Product or subscription type, is an item you are selling to customers. This could simply be your coaching programs which will be listed in your cart for your clients to purchase. You could create a free membership as a 'product' where you offer free access to one of your coaching programs. This could be where you have bundled several programs together calling this for example "silver" membership where you are charging a subscription. This could also be where you wish to create let's say a Gold membership where your clients have access to protected pages or folders with your resources for them to access together with access to programs on your coaching hub.
So, the first thing is to consider what do you want to offer? The easiest to start with would be your coaching programs.
