What are your thoughts on Giving FREE Membership Site?

What are your thoughts on Giving FREE Membership Site? (Members only Access) Have you ever seen someone do this successfully? I am just wondering if you give FREE membership site access, do you think there is still people who want to join. If yes, what topics or niches to go for? And what membership platform available?

Cheers.

    I hope I understand you right, if yes:

    there are always people who want to join if you provide something they desire and which solves their problem


    for example half a year ago I offered free access to a membership site and people could join and watch videos on how to start a business..



    you can then monetize this by providing helpful links (affiliate links) to other services which are helpful for what you are teaching


    I did this on kartra , but clickfunnels is also a good way to go


    you should choose a niche you either like or atleast don't hate, it depends on your personal interest

    Free membership sites that are stripped down versions of the premium version often backfire

    If you need proof, look of SMM freemium model sites

    It's a crapshoot

    Let's put it this way, if your product has REAL value, people will step up and pay for it - especially if it is a B2B offer

    Free membership sites aren't all they're cashed up to be. I believe that if you're selling something solid that people will enjoy and invest in, why the need to usher them with a free sample?

    I've had some success with free membership sites that have affiliate links in them. But overall, a paid site is much more worthwhile.

    I'll give you sample of Free Membership site which is very successful: stackoverflow.com . It has tens of millions of visitors daily with free membership and even free content. It's target auditorium are developers. They like to go there, because they can get some reputation there in case if their answer is useful or loose reputation. And other people visit web site in order to find answer on their question. And site by itself lives from advertisement.

    If done well, it can be a great way to build a mailing-list, by requiring their email to become a member.

    Then you can notify them about new content, and recommend products etc.

    I think it is you to determine a niche that interests you, but it should be able to solve some problems.. Later you can monetize the site and earn a living from google ads.
