Hi everyone,

So I'm not sure if this has been asked before, but what would you like to see in an IM related membership site or even what would you NOT like to see in a such a site?

I'm asking because I'm working on a couple of membership sites (one IM related and one Non-IM related) but I want it to be top notch, so where better to ask than my fellow Warriors. Look forward to your thoughts and ideas.

Gee

    If the membership site was recurring, I would like to see updated content, a decent portion anyway. An IM membership site should also have some good tools for keyword research, content, graphic design, maybe throw in an assorted pack of templates for the members. General stuff like that, which of course is constantly being updated, that is the key to KEEPING subscribers of a membership site.

    Ok I can see that all being useful, but that seems a bit of a "PLR type" membership which there are plenty of. Any other ideas?

    What would make your journey in IM easier?

    Hi,

    I wasn't going to respond last night. I see the thread name has been changed.

    Truth is you need to figure out what your going to do to be unique.

    It is not really what a few members here may wish to see it inevitably remains about what solution you will bring to a problem. It is not about just the content of the site but the quality of the site.

    For instance you could make a site that offered crocheting courses video games etc etc but that still is only going to appeal to a certain kind of person. It is about the problems you may see and the solution YOU came up with to fix that problem.

    Making yourself stand out that is key. you want to make your site top notch that is respectable but you have some stiff competition.

    That's why you need to have a unique spin on it and what kind of membersite will it be a monthly recurring site a one time for life site a 1 time a year site will you offer courses training forums chat rooms I mean there is such a broad range of things to offer your members .

    Just my thoughts

    Hey WD,

    Thanks for the advice.

    Not sure about responding last night, I only started this thread today. You may have me confused with someone else maybe?

    Anyways thanks again....I'll go and put my extra large thinking cap on

    Hi Gee,

    well this morning to me is last night as i work all night. the thread did say membership site advice or something or other.

    Anyhow I am one of your competition and it will be hard to surpass what I have done however it is more then possible just do something that makes yourself stand out and offer things to keep the members interested and loyal.
    I wish you all success.

      Hey WD,

      Ahh, yeh I guess it was the thread you saw earlier.

      Just checked your site out.

      I'm actually going in a totally different direction to your membership site, so maybe we're not completely in competition with one another. Also, good luck to you and your members.

      Gee

    Lots of software that is not available anywhere else. Good free information is very common these days (WF for example), but unique software is less available.

      I'm sure other sites may be doing this. It's something I didn't think of though. Thanks for the input.
