Let’s begin with understanding what a membership site is by a consultant clan…
Understanding A Membership Site by Consultant Clan
Membership sites have long been considered the ultimate information marketing business model.
You create a core product once. You run a promotion once. You get a subscriber once. And you get paid every single month.
Now, the question is… what does a membership site mean?
What Is A Membership Site
Think of a membership site as an online magazine where consumers pay for subscriptions to get a copy. Target clients subscribe to read the content on your membership site.
Typically, a membership site is a “gated” part of your website. Only members who subscribe can access the content behind the “gates” – a barrier you build into your website.Once clients are already members, they can log in and access the exclusive contents on your website.
Example of those contents are:
- Online courses,
- Pictures, and
A membership site is a way to make money for your content. People pay to subscribe because they simply are interested in you. This can become an excellent complement to your online appearance.
Now, how do we create a good membership site?
You begin it with planning out the membership site.
Plan Out The Membership Site
A great production comes from planning ahead. So, take the time to plan out your desired membership site. Plan it just the way you want it.
But remember, an interactive membership site has different elements to it. You need to figure out the levels of access, content structure and layout you want.
In addition, using marketing funnel is also the most overlooked aspect of a membership site. Without it, you’ll be hard-pressed to get any sales. When planning out the marketing funnel, you need to plan out any upsells or downsells you’ll offer.
Now, you can start off with a free membership (to collect emails) which allows only limited access. Later on, the member can pay more to unlock different areas of the membership site.
But that is if they still want more from you… so you have to drive them to still want more.
How Will You Charge For Access
Once the initial content is planned, you need to decide what and how much charges to ask from your subscriber or members.
It’s very important to keep these thoughts when charging for access:
- Will you want to charge a one time fee, or will you want a monthly fee?
- Do you want lots of small products or one large product with a higher ticket price?
Think about your product value ladder, and how you want to grow with your customer.
You Don’t Have To Have It All Done At Once
Don’t think you have to have the membership site completely done before you start marketing it.
Offering “founders” discount for the early adopters or subscribers can help market your membership site. Additional charges are then asked to complete the parts of the content.
Don’t think you have to get it 100% done…
Otherwise, you may not get a chance to start monetizing your work. The membership site will probably constantly evolve for years after the launch date. It all takes time.
How To Get Membership
When you have the site finally built you think about how you’ll get traffic to the site and into the marketing funnel.
When you have a membership site, you automatically have access to lots of consumers’ contact information. Those email addresses become intensely valuable when you want to market your other digital products.
These articles can help you decide what methods to use to drive more traffic unto your membership site:
Still, you won’t be able to just expect the traffic will come once you’re site is built. You’ll have to deliberately drive traffic to the membership site.
