Question about building membership sites.

by 2 comments
I am looking into maybe creating a PLR membership site. I was wondering if anyone has done this and what kind of hosting etc does it require? I am a member of several PLR sites and some are very expensive. I have not owned a membership site so I am looking for a good one to use and what I should expect on hosting.

Any advice would be great.

    Hi Jason,

    As far as you are not going to host and letting your members download
    many many videos, i think a simple hostgator like a/c will be fine.

    Also make sure you pick right, membership solution(script)
    and (optional) content management system to manage the content
    if you are going to have many many webpages in your membership site.

    I have helped many many Warriors to help them build membership websites,
    and the best combination i have found is ...aMember + Wordpress
    i.e. You install a blog, tweak its design you want, make all posts
    and entries for the downloads and links. And protect this Blog folder
    with aMember.. This is best combination in sense of security, easy
    to use, and manage, scalability...

    Also if membership is going to be content intensive, you may switch wordpress with Joomla...but i do not recommend as Joomla for avg user
    is difficult to use as compared to wordpress.

    Hope this help,

    Hi Jason
    I have run membership sites for years. Like already mentioned, it depends on what your PLR will be. Audio/Video is a space taker, I recommend their service is great and uptime is better than hostgator. HG goes down often and many of its servers are black listed (automatic spam) HG hosts a load of adult sites and that could be the reason
    I use aMember plus 4images for my member sites, which are mainly graphics,powerpoint,animations, wallpapers and various zip files.

    Hi, I'm quite new on internet marketing and I decided to start writing lots of articles related with psychology/personal development tips niche (non-published). However, after writing 40-50 articles I started to read a lot of niche sites and I'm a little confused that probably my articles are getting too broad for this niche. Since I didn't target it for a specific mental health pathology I believe that I went too broad and will be very hard to monetize. I would appreciate any suggestions

    Back in my old corporate and sales days, we used to have a lot of conferences, team-building events, and stuff. That was interesting. You meet with your colleagues from all over the world and you talk. So, on one of these events I talk to a guy. He asked me how many clients I had at the moment. I said around 30. He was like, that was great. That was good for you. I wasn't so optimistic. Most of my customers at that moment were small and family-owned companies. That means lots of meeting. Calls. Visits. Orders. It was a logistic nightmare, to be honest. Then he asked me, what is the ratio of the customers I lost and win over a year. I said it's not such a big deal. I lose a customer or two. It happens, but at the same time, I find two or three new ones over the same time period. So, I'm still good. Then he said, now you see why it's great to have small customers. You can never get in trouble. Guess, it was my turn to ask questions. To my huge surprise, he said that he had only one client. Then, he said the name of this client and everything become quite clear. This company had quite a reputation outside its national borders. I was totally honest. I would give all of my clients for this one. This guy in charge of this VIP client told me, I should think twice. If he loses this client, he loses everything. All I could say is that was not a very likely scenario.
