INTRODUCTION

In our ongoing series on how to make money online, today I want to discuss a popular and proven method that you can implement quickly.

As you may or may not know, I am developing a membership site myself for the making money online niche. I have spent a great deal of time gathering training materials, tools, a theme, and other materials…

The reason I am doing this is not just for myself and the recurring income you can realize from such a site. Rather, I really want to help people that are getting started or who have some experience have more success.

This same concept I am working on can be done for any niche. There are some basics that you will have to consider when you start planning for a membership site, and today we will cover these…

At the end of the tutorial, you will have a good idea on just how to proceed, some good tips to make sure that you offer a top-quality site for members, and you then can monetize what you have built…

Here is a short video that explains why membership sites are so useful:

You will have a chance to secure this training below for free, but please look through this tutorial first so you understand what is being offered.

I also have two additional paid courses for you today, and with the tutorial and the three packages, you will be well armed to get your very own membership site up and running in no time!

Let’s get started…

SOME ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL NICHE MEMBERSHIP SITE

You need a membership site of your own. You may never have thought of having your own membership site, but it is a strong customer attractant and is in some ways easier than the typical affiliate sites.

One of the best ways to attract prospects is to put together your own membership site. It is not that hard to do, and pay benefits to your online marketing business for months and months…

The holy grail of online marketers is recurring income. Using a membership site you can build a targeted lead list quickly. That list will be made up of people who are interested in the niche and they will want to come back, again and again, to see what is new that you have to offer.

People can join the site for several different reasons…

(1) They may want a newsletter you are offering,

(2) They may be happy to get several things they want all in one convenient place, or

(3) They may like the chance to communicate with other like-minded people, or it may be…

(4) They may just love the posts you publish (Maybe you offer a fresh perspective?)…

Whatever the reason they join, the members can be charged a small monthly fee to keep getting access to what you have to offer…You keep adding information, interact with members and grow the site…

Your additional information can generally include anything such as articles, training, tools, or services you make available to members…This is just the start, however…

Surveys or polls can be added, add in customer service for questions and problems, do some live video streaming, create a private Facebook group, and maybe add in a forum or a blog post capability within the membership site to further tie it all together.

Whatever you add, the idea is to keep it fresh, continue to build on the content that is on the site, and members feel as if they are special (as they are) and part of something special, your membership site…

For you, the advantage is that meeting your monthly income goals becomes much easier when you have a membership site. That steady stream of paying members each month can augment your affiliate sales, or it can be used in place of them to pay your bills.

Once you build your site, the membership angle can be more than a hobby. If you enjoy helping people, interacting with people, and watch them go and grow, a membership site will give you a lot back for your effort.

Remember that a membership site is essentially a brand, and it can be marketed as such, and if you have something of quality, it will succeed and grow…

You can even offer an affiliate program for your membership site and share the profits with others. This helps you get recognition, more members, and a following.

Because the income is recurring, a membership site will help you in times of few sales of your own products or affiliate sales as well…Sales slumps will be cushioned by that more steady income monthly membership fees bring you.

You can do something similar even if the membership is free for your site. In this case, you would want to sell products, services, or training within the site to members, but not charge them for membership.

Either way, you can use the membership site to your advantage and help build your overall online marketing business. I can safely say that having a membership site is a very strong marketing technique that helps  you brand your business and your products.

I can attest that having a membership site is a very strong marketing technique that helps  you brand your business and your products. I have seen this again and again as an online marketer…This is the reason that I am building one right now!

HOW TO ESTABLISH YOUR NICHE

Membership sites, if they are set up properly, can generate multiple income streams for your bottom line…

You can realize income from monthly membership, from specials you offer inside the site, from affiliates efforts if you choose to go in that direction, and from additional business from conducting webinars, live training, etc.

Getting membership sites set up the right way means that members will be able to navigate the site easily, have use of the material available to them, and make them want to come back day after day…

If you have focused on what the site will contain, you can then use highly targeted marketing and offer related services and content that this targeted audience will need and use.

Membership Targeting is a three step process…

(1) First, identify the market. If you already know what market you will enter, good. If not you will have to do some research.

(2) Second, will your market generate income? Having a membership site in a niche that interests you is a good thing, but you need to make sure that you will be able to monetize the niche. Charity is good, but you still have to pay the bills!

(3) Lastly, drill down into a smaller and tighter area of your niche. You want to have a specific enough niche that you will not get lost in the market bedlam that is out there in the huge internet world…You want to target only people that have a passion for whatever it is that you will focus on…Then focus on adding information that is highly targeted to what they want.

Your premise for the site is that members are paying you money to save them the time and effort of trying to find the things you’re finding for them and adding to the site. Think CNN, Huffington Post, etc.

There are many directions to go with niche membership sites, it is not only products you can go after…Maybe target a particular demographic, a geographical area, or an event.

Approach people you know or family to get some ideas or run you ideas past them for feedback…Try to think about some areas that you enjoy and would not mind spending a lot of time involved in…

Next – Determine Demand

You can do a little research and see what the demand may be for your niche. Go to the bookstore, see what is selling and popular…Look on Amazon or eBay to see what is selling, read some comments…Read about the business through reports, websites, etc.

Use Keyword Research

Keywords are key (no pun intended)…Use AdWords (Google), use some of your keyword tools such as aMarket Samurai or Niche Reaper and look for niches that offer a high potential return and ones that have a lower level of competition.

Start from the general keywords for a niche and then work your way to the more specific, long-tail keywords…Remember you are focusing on topics that you would enjoy working with…

Keyword results are super indicators for determining demand and potential for you niche website!

Is There A Customer Demand

Go further than the idea and keyword research…Now you can look at the forums, chat rooms, facebook groups, and even facebook fan pages to see if there really is a demand for your niche…

See what members are doing, what they are looking for, what they are talking about, what their needs are, etc. You will get a good idea of website content you can add to your membership site that will be what they are looking for…

Once you know what they want , look for the solutions and provide them…

At this point, you may want to start interacting with potential members on the forums and pages or groups…Ask some questions, observe the answers you get, and later you can use the platforms to mention your membership site.

Do some further research to find the solutions they seek…Look at other websites serving the niche you’re targeting, determine what you can do better. Look at the products they’re offering, look at the advertisers on their sites as well; visit the sponsored sites and learn, learn, learn.

As you do this research, take notes on the appearance and navigation of the sites, see what products they offer, what other programs or tools are they including, and basically soak up as much knowledge as you can.

Now go again to your local bricks and mortar stores and library to read some more about your niche…Particularly focus on any related magazines that may be devoted to your niche. In the bookstores or stores, depending on the niche, see what products are being sold.

Next, Do Research On Yet More Sites

Check on informational sites – start with article directories, like ezinearticles.com or Reddit. Dig into your niche, see what demand there is for the information.

As you do this research, check on the sites of authors and take notes about what they’re doing right that you can emulate, and also things you can do better.

OK, you now have an idea on how to determine what the niche you pursue might be, next we will cover why a membership site is essential for getting new visitors daily to your website…

ATTRACTING NEW VISITORS DAILY 

As we all know, the Internet reaches billions of people a day – Just facebook gets 1.5 billion viewers a day! People today have unimaginable amounts of information right at their fingertips.

How do you stand out and get some of those visits…That is the question!

By its nature the internet was designed to be a free environment where information is exchanged openly, there has been a tendency for people to use curated sites that provide things they are looking for without having to search for the information themselves…

People do not mind paying for this service and do…Think music, television or cable, tools, etc. People are seeking information, and if you have what they are looking for, they will pay you…

They could do the work to gather the information you provide, but they do not have the time nor the inclination. They would rather pay someone to do it for them…

There is a subject matter expert that has published a lot of good information on membership sites…His name is Rasmussen, and according to him, there is a formula that all successful membership websites must follow. 

You can find out more about his training at the website “www.MembershipSiteInfo.com.” There he explains the path to building and running a successful membership website.

CONCLUSION

The market is ready for more membership sites as more and more content is added to the internet…People are willing to pay for someone to do the work they could do but do not have the time to do….This is a growing opportunity for you.

Here are some things to consider adding to your site:

(1) Library of Content. Include a downloadable library of training manuals, contract templates, service agreement forms, employment forms, SaaS tools, or anything else that your niche can use daily or often.

(2) Cover the concerns of members. Add content that covers the biggest concerns of niche members and include levels for the starting entry level member to advanced and experienced members.

(3) Build in a forum. Include a discussion forum so members can exchange ideas, questions, tips and tools, and just have someone like-minded to talk with…It also gives experienced members a chance to share their knowledge with the less experienced.

(4) Create a blog platform with a comment section. Consider adding in the ability for members to add in their own training, blogs, and videos even, plus the ability for other members to comment on their posts…

(5) Allow members to create and post training for others. This will help get everyone involved and interested. The membership site becomes much more powerful…

Let’s cover the advantages of a membership site one more time:

(1) Gives you a recurring revenue stream. The numbers add up quickly…Look at my example directly below…

Let’s say you create  three levels of membership for your site and have 100 members total…There are 60 members subscribed at the lowest level of$10 a month,  and 20 more at the mid-level where you charge $20, and yet 20 more members paying $30 a month, you have a total income of $1600! Imagine if you tripled the total membership and keep that ratio? You see how quickly income can be generated…

(2) There are low operational costs. You only have to maintain a website, a merchant account, and whatever costs for new content you will incur, plus maintenance of the site, so your total cost can be kept well below $500/month with little problem.

(3) Your marketing costs are low. Once you are up and running, there is no need for a large advertising budget…If you add in an affiliate program, you share the monthly subscriptions with others, but they are doing the marketing for you!

Now is the time to get your membership site up and going!

The timing is right at this moment. Remember that more and more Internet users are willing to pay for quality information curated for them that helps them make more money, shows them how to use an existing product better (i,e, PPC) or provides them more training.

Bottom Line: Do not ignore this opportunity to take your business to the next level, a residual income based level – a chance to secure an awesome “salary” based income stream.
