Well, we have come to the final lesson in the Membership Site Blueprint
course. I sure hope you have enjoyed your lessons and learned
a lot about setting up and profiting from your own membership sites.
In the last lesson we talked about are going to talk about how to sell
your membership site for big profits. In this lesson we are going to go
over some great ways to find new ideas for your next membership site,
so that you can increase your profits even more.
As you have learned over that last several lessons, once you have a
good idea for your membership site, there’s a specific process you can
follow that will help you get it set up and ready for members.
Lucky for you, there is also a simple process that you can follow to get
ideas for your next membership site. If you’re unsure how to begin and
are stuck for ideas, try out these tips. Your next membership site may
not be that far away.
– Get personal.
Begin by brainstorming your own life. Creating your membership site is
going to be much easier if you know a little bit about the market. That’s
why it’s a great idea to start your ideas list with hobbies, interests and
activities from your own life. Write down everything that you and your
family members are passionate about or interested in. This list could
be a goldmine for your membership site.
– New product launches.
Ebook and video course creators have done a lot of niche market
research in order to create their products. You can piggyback on this
research specifically by keeping an eye on “product launches”. For
example, if you see a lot of products being produced on article
marketing you can safely assume that a membership site on the same
topic would do well. Subscribe to email lists in your potential market to
watch for product launches and get ideas for your site.
– Examine in detail.
If you want a comprehensive list of existing electronic products that are
selling well, Clickbank.com/marketplace is the place to go. Search
through the marketplace to find out what topics your market is
interested in learning about. You'll be able to find new market ideas,
content to fill your site as well as affiliate offers to create some backend
– Popular topics.
Visit Amazon.com’s best-seller list. Amazon is the top bookseller
online so it makes sense to search their marketplace for membership
site ideas. The bestseller lists in various categories will help you see
what topics are popular. You can easily gather membership site ideas
from these lists. Hint: Go with the topics that are popular.
– Keep your finger on the pulse.
Forums are the pulse of your market. You can be sure that a market has
members that would be willing to pay if there is an active forum
dedicated to that topic. Track down some popular forums in your
potential market and spend some time browsing through the topics.
See what the market is talking about. Pay close attention to the FAQs
section and the threads that have a lot of activity. These are indicators
of the kinds of topics which might serve as a topic for your next
– Check out the magazines.
You should go to Magazines.com! This website is full of membership site
ideas. If a market has a buying audience, there is probably a magazine
out there dedicated to it. Magazines don’t get started without
advertising dollars to back them up. If advertisers are paying to get to a
market, it’s a safe bet that you can create a membership site for the
same market. On Magazines.com you can search by category to find
membership site ideas. I love this place!
– Look for problems.
The final stop I want to mention is Yahoo groups. These free e-mail
discussion lists cover a wide variety of topics. Subscribe to a few
groups in your potential market to look for ideas. The benefit of using
groups like these is that you'll often be able to see problems in the
market that aren't currently being met by other products.
By going through these simple outlets you are sure to find a great idea
for your next membership site.
As we close this final lesson I would like to thank you again for joining
me and I sincerely hope that you have learned a lot about how to set up
and profit from your own membership sites! Please feel free to contact
me if you have any questions about how to get your membership site up
and running. I will be glad to help.
