Membership site...If I build it... Will they come???

by micky99 8 replies
I am really keen to start a membership site.

I realize that it will have to revolve around a really great niche...

But my general question about membership sites is are people really willing to pay for content??

There seems to be an endless amount of 'free' (although arguably not all of it is of good quality) content online.

Obviously setting myself apart - proving I have excellent, relevant, high quality content will entice people to pay monthly.

But will people really pay?

I would love to hear from any current membership site owners.

    Of course people will pay- if not, how do you explain all the existing membership sites?

    If people wouldn't pay for content, why do bookstores exist?

      As with any info product, if you are organizing all the info for them -- and saving them time and frustration -- they will pay. Of course, this isn't Field Of Dreams, and they won't just come -- you have to market the site and bring it traffic.
