Membership sites pay you every month but most marketers have absolutely no idea how to start one. Now there’s a new membership site platform that’s as easy to use as WordPress. Check it out!
As an internet marketer you have several different income-producing models to choose from. One of the very best ways to make passive money online is the membership website model.
Why is it so good?
Because you sell one time but bill over and over again. As long as you keep your paying members happy they’ll continue to stick with you month after month. The produces a reliable and recurring income stream which you can depend on.
Types Of Membership Sites
- Drip Feed: The drip feed model is probably the most common membership method. It allows members access to a password-protected private area of your website with new content added each month for a fee. This kind of content release is a good way of preventing ‘hit and run members’ who join your site, watch or download all your content, and then cancel or ask for a refund. And yes, there are people out there who do this so this is a good way to protect both your assets and income.
- Online Course: A membership site that delivers an online course is another common model. An online course can either be drip fed over time or delivered up front in its entirety – completely up to you. And it’s all kept safe behind a private membership wall. It can either be a private area of your website or a completely separate mini-site that has only the course material.
- Complete Membership Site: A membership site allows members access to all of the content on the site immediately upon the initial payment. With this model it’s important to be consistently adding new content to keep your members paying each month to access it. Another option is to include a member forum that will deliver added value each month to keep from just downloading all your information and canceling immediately.
- Online Community: An example of this would be The Warrior Forum where you may access the majority of the forum for free but have the option to joining premium private content areas such as the Warrior Forum War Room. You will charge a monthly fee for access to these private forums, online groups, or messaging systems so your members will have access for as long as they pay. This model works well because your members will start forming relationships and many will likely stick around for a long time.
