Best ebook on creating membership sites?

by Dayne Dylan 9 replies
Warriors,

I'm needing a great info guide on everything membership sites to help me brainstorm possible ideas and ways to make a great and lasting, and most of all...successful membership site.

I would rather put all my focus in to residual income of one great membership site and work on growing the # of subscribers. It simply makes sense for the long term and for security, etc.

Ideas or thoughts? Suggestions?

Thank you!

    Personally, I would recommend "Insider Secrets to Running Your Own Membership Site" from Kim Standerline although I think she's in the process of revising it, so it may not be available today.

      To me, it makes sense to create a membership site with the Jimmy Brown method, which is loading up an autoresponder with "lessons" or reports that go out weekly to paid members. This way it is all automated. You don't have to deal with adding really fresh content, or the whole setup of a big membership site.

      Do any of you do this with success? Just curious. Thank you for all the responses!

        Jimmy Brown's method is also what I recommend, personally. But I don’t think you need to join his membership site to learn this technique. Loading up your autoresponder with content and delivering them on pre-defined schedule: is there anything new to learn about it?

        If however you want to see the method live, then I recommend you join Dennis Becker's ICG membership. It is chock full of info, plus Dennis uses this exact method to deliver content. You can get in for under $10/month.

        Correct me if I am wrong, but I think this method is also covered in the War room.

            For those of you that use the automated, autoresponder membership method (Jimmy Brown)...are your complete lessons in an email or do you simply add a link in the email that goes to a site with the info or a PDF report? Just curious.

            the truth is you can make this stuff as easy or as hard as you want.

            Does the autoresponder membership site work?

            Yes.

            Can you charge $600 million dollars a month for it?

            Probably not.

            Can you buy Amember and run a top-of-the-line custom Joomla thingy with
            matching curtains?

            Indeed!

            can you charge a lot for it?

            Indeed!

            Here's what you need to know:

            Over deliver by a factor of 100.

            BUT... (and there was a GREAT thread on this a while back... anyone bookmark that?)

            Do not base your content on yourself. Don't be the dude who always has to sit there and has to check things out.

            Automate and outsource.

            I've never used that ememberpro thing everyone is tossing around (however it does look nice) The major pain you'll have to overcome is the management software.

            In all reality a membership site is no different than a normal one time product... except you need to deliver that product every month.

              I think the autoresponder technique works better for some audiences than others. If you have something that needs teaching in a step-by-step fashion, that doesn't require a forum to handle people's questions etc, then it's great. Also, if you have time sensitive, or up-to-date information, then it's not going to work. But it's sure an easy way to get your feet wet :-)
