This guy showsy ou how easy it is to make money online with membership sites
It’s been more than a month since my last post… and that’s because I’ve been busy with my company and other stuff. As today’s a holiday because I’m sick at home, I’ll talk about one of the things I’ve been working on of late – membership sites.
I’ve started membership sites in the past, although mostly one time memberships ($47 up front for example rather than $47/month), some have been reasonably successful, some have bombed.
Whenever I start a business, I believed that there always needed to be an exit strategy – living in Dubai, that wasn’t possible with a membership site. Paypal subscriptions can’t be transferred to another account with breaking them and getting your members to resubscribe (which will naturally mean you lose a few of them) and other things like merchant accounts were hard to get in Dubai.
Considering I didn’t have a credit card (and the one I do have is still used rarely / never), I didn’t want to look at other ways of setting it up so focused on doing simple one time products like eBooks, scripts and so on.
Now that I have actual employees, I can focus on membership sites without needing the exit strategy as they can be taught to maintain them (meaning I will have to do little / no work on them even if I decide to ‘retire’). I’ve been playing around with various scripts and recently launched my first membership site on April 8th.
