How are you?  We're winding down to the end of this short course. But

we still need to go over a few things before we call it a wrap and you

can get busy building your own membership site empire.

In the last lesson we talked about some big mistakes that could doom

your membership site to failure so you can avoid them. In this lesson we

are going to talk about how to sell your membership site for big profits!

As you know a membership site is a great way to get consistent

monthly income but did you know that it can bring you even more money

if you sell it after it’s been established for several months?

By doing all the groundwork for a membership site, you can sell your

website to someone who wants to take it to the next level. When you

follow these simple steps, you can be ready to sell your first website

within a matter of months.

Start with a profitable idea.

The future buyer of your membership site will do a lot of market

research to make sure the site will be profitable. You need to do the

same. Start by looking for a profitable market using Clickbank,

Amazon’s best sellers list and other niche market research techniques.

Be sure to check out the existing competition and pick a membership

site topic where you can quickly gain dominance.

Register a new Paypal address.

Your future site transfer will go a whole lot easier if you have a separate

Paypal address to collect memberships. If you have the new

memberships go to your existing address, you'll have to have all the

subscribers unsubscribe and then re-subscribe to the new owner’s

Paypal address. By setting up a separate Paypal address, you'll

increase the likelihood of keeping subscribers with the new owner.

Install Google analytics

Google analytics is a free tracking program that will tell potential buyers

all about the traffic that your website is receiving. Register for the

service and install the code onto your web pages from the first day you

start the site. You'll have a nice history of your site’s traffic to show the

buyers as well as proof that you’re receiving the daily visits that you

claim you are.

Create a few months of content.

Get your membership started with a month of content and have a

second month ready to add. If you want to add more money to your

bottom line, add a few additional months of content and include them

with your sales price. This will give the new owner plenty to work with

once the site transfer takes place.

Drive traffic to the site.

Use article marketing, pay per click campaigns and viral reports to start

building traffic to the website. With a great sales letter, you'll have your

first subscribers in no time. Continue the traffic building techniques for

the entire time the site is under your control.

Prepare your site to sell.

Once you've gotten a good amount of members into the website and

feel you’re ready to sell, gather together your traffic data and post an

ad. Webmaster forums like Sitepoint and Digital Point Marketplace are

some of the best places to sell your site. Browse through the existing

listings to get a sense of what works and what doesn't. Pay attention to

the starting prices for auctions and price your site accordingly. Be sure

to answer all buyer questions and be prepared to collect a big payout

for your hard work!
