So I then thought about doing a membership site in a niche outside of IM. The book I read (which was highly recommended) pretty much suggested writing some articles on a topic and having subscribers pay to read them. And that's where I hit a brick wall.
I can see people paying for an ebook where the information they want is all neatly laid out for them. But paying every month to read some articles? I don't know.
So I guess my question is how successful membership sites like this really are.
