In this first lesson we are going to talk about some of the best reasons

why you should start your own membership site.

It is a profitable fact that many successful online business owners know,

membership sites are one of the best online business models that you

can use!

When it comes to setting up your own membership site there are many

different options available, so there’s no reason why you shouldn't

make them a part of your Internet marketing strategy. Reselling

information to your market on a monthly basis has many benefits

including:

A monthly recurring income.

This is one of the most popular benefits of starting a membership site.

When you build a membership site you'll have 100, 200 or even 500

members paying you on a monthly basis for your information. Imagine

the possibilities! With a $15 monthly membership fee, you could be

looking at a $7500 a month just for one site. If you provide more content

and charge a higher price for your membership site, you could be

earning well over six figures a year for your site.

Having affiliates promote for you.

Affiliates love membership sites. If they have a choice between

recurring monthly income and a one-time ebook sale in the same niche,

they are going to spend their time promoting the membership site. They

are looking for the same type of recurring income that you are. You can

easily set up your affiliate program through Clickbank, 2checkout or

Paydotcom. Promote your affiliate program to your members and super

affiliates to get more sales.

Dominating your niche.

No other platform allows you to have widespread coverage on a niche

the way that a membership site does. Within the gates of your

membership site, you can offer a wide variety of content. In addition to

articles and short reports, you can do teleconferences, videos and

interviews. The more content you put into your membership site and the

more members you have, the more your content and your

recommendations will be respected within the niche.

There’s no faster way to brand yourself as an expert within your niche

than by creating a membership site. All your future content and products

in the niche will have a lot more clout.

Plenty of backend sales opportunities.

The income from a membership site doesn't stop with the monthly

membership fees. There are plenty of opportunities to make additional

income from your site. You can sell private tutoring, advanced products

and platinum memberships. You can also repackage part of the content

used in your membership site and sell it as an independent product.

You can sell advertising as well to boost the profitability of your

membership site.

Easier than you may think!

It has never been easier to run a membership site, especially if you

don’t have any technical expertise. It used to be that you would need the

help of a web programmer to get a membership site set up properly.

Thanks to easy to use content management systems like Wordpress

and membership site scripts that will make security easy, you can have

your membership site set up within a matter of hours. There’s no

reason why you shouldn't start one right away!
