If you’re reading this, there is a good chance that you already understand the amazing earning potential of creating membership sites that bring in a recurring revenue.  By bringing in more and more customers who pay a monthly fee for your content, your income stream will grow FAST.

In essence, a membership site involves people paying a monthly fee to have access to private content.  This content is usually released at regular intervals, often weekly.

Not only are membership sites EXTREMELY profitable, but by having a membership site, it puts you on the path of becoming an authority figure within your chosen niche.

Starting a membership site is not nearly as difficult as you might think.  A lot of marketers get intimidated by the idea, thinking it is too big of an undertaking.  The truth is that there are a lot of great services and software options that make the task quite easy.  After the initial, often painless setup, all you really need to worry about is providing content and signing up new members.

You don’t even have to worry about having six or more months of content ready for your members.  Technically, you could start out with only the first week or two of content available on the site.  Just make sure you can add future content before they get done with what is currently there.  You don’t want members to get to a point where no content is available.  That’s the fastest way to start losing all your paying customers.

One thing to keep in mind is that the whole point of a membership site is that you can automate almost everything.  When people sign up for your list and set up their payment, they will automatically be directed on how to get started.  You won’t need to create their account, or handle any of that.  All you will need to focus on is getting new members, and making sure your members have content on a weekly basis.

When I say your members get content on a weekly basis, remember you only need to be making content for your oldest members.  You already have content ready for all of your other newer members, and it will automatically be delivered to them within the normal time frame.

Why Start a Membership Site?

People are willing to pay for online content. In fact, the "Online Publishers Association" said that pay-for content is emerging as a hot revenue model. Business content, personals/match making, and entertainment are the hottest niches. But even smaller niches, like  authoring  journal  , sports coaching, marketing services, and dieting are producing profits.

You can sell subscriptions for online content with your own membership site? Selling online content by way of a password protected website has become big business. Not only is it fast to set up, but the start-up and running costs are minimal. Work from home entrepreneurs and big businesses alike are tapping into this newfound revenue source.

Less than nine percent of online users currently pay for online content. This means the market is wide open for the savvy entrepreneur. Paying for content in 2004 was more than 5 times what it was in 2005. That’s a whopping 500% growth! Those who capture the market first in their niche will have the obvious advantage and it’s an international market, so anyone can play.

One of the great things about starting a membership site is you can take your hobby, specialized knowledge or profession and turn it into a profitable business. Your challenge will be finding exclusive content. You can start it part time but it will likely develop into a full time business.

Planning for and setting your site up for auto-responders, automated sign-ups, credit card processing, automated cancellations, etc is all part of a successful membership website. Starting and running a membership site can be a lot of fun and very exciting, however you need to know what’s involved in setting one up, and then managing it effectively.

This whole process can seem a bit daunting. However, as complex as this seems, many companies offer a low cost, easy-to-use software solution. This makes it possible for almost anyone to start and market a membership site at a very low cost.

Membership Sites Today

The topics for successful member only websites are as varied today as...short people, tall people, buying websites, unusual business ideas, selling stocks, paint ball, 2nd wives clubs, financial, dating, fitness, marketing and countless mentoring and coaching sites on almost every topic imaginable and probably a few you can’t imagine or wouldn’t want to imagine.

It takes some work and certainly the right tools to set up a members-only website but the rewards (monetary as well as personal satisfaction) can be huge.  Whatever you are passionately interested in or very adept at can be the topic of a members-only website today.

One of the first types of membership sties on the Internet was the online dating site. In the beginning, they were mostly populated with nerds, weirdoes and perverts but as the Internet matured the sites became popular among people from all walks of life. They have even progressed so far as to offer pre-screening of members. Most porn sites are membership only sites.

There are membership sites today that cover just about every area of human interests. Some offer informational or teaching material that can only be accessed by site members. Some membership can be viewed by non members but non-members are not allowed to participate in the activities or post to the message boards on the site.  Sites that provide information to find work-at-home jobs, for example, can see the listing of jobs but cannot apply for the jobs unless they are members of the membership site.

There are membership sites that provide instruction is such things as how to play a guitar. The lessons are accessible only to members of the site, although those who are not members can view what subjects are being taught in the lessons.

Membership sites usually accept payment for membership fees by credit card or by personal check.

Membership Site –Passive Income Model

For many entrepreneurs, passive income options are the top choice because while they take time to set up, once they’re running, the amount of effort involved drops off. Even so, for many passive income streams, such as information products, you have start at $0 each month and hope you sell enough to meet your goals.

The ideal online business involves both passive and recurring (continues regularly) income, and one of the best ways to have that is through a membership site.

What Is a Membership Site?

Like a gym membership, in which you pay a monthly fee to use the gym’s resources, a membership site is a place where people can join to get whatever it is you offer. Many membership sites offer articles or reports, video tutorials, webinars, checklists, templates, apps or software, and more.

Generally, people join a membership site because it will simplify their life, speed up the learning curve, and/or give them greater detail on how to do something than general content offered online. For example, there are many online marketing membership sites that delve down into specific topics, such as how to write a successful Facebook ad, maximize Instegram and/or repurpose content across marketing platforms.

Pros of Building a Membership Site

Many companies, including Microsoft and Adobe have begun to use the membership or subscription model in their businesses because there are many benefits to it including:

Generate steady income. If you have a monthly membership site and you’re able to retain a good percentage of your members, you can count on regular (recurring) income, as opposed to starting from $0 every month. For example, if you have 100 members paying $30 a month, you can, for the most part, count on $3,000 per month income, as long as you retain your membership numbers.

Builds your credibility as an expert. Being seen as the go-to authority in your niche not only increases your membership site income, but can create other income opportunities such in coaching or consulting, or speaking.

Build a loyal community. If you provide quality content, many of your loyal members will refer new members (you can even offer an affiliate program), and they’ll buy new products or services you offer.

Can be automated. Depending on what you choose to do, you can turn your membership site into a passive income stream that delivers your content automatically.

Offers great flexibility. You can run a membership site anytime and anywhere, as long as you have Internet access.Cons to Running a Membership Site

There are a few downsides to building a membership website you’ll want to consider before getting started.

Need to stay current on news and trends in your niche to insure your members are getting top of the line content.

You need to provide quality information that retains membership, and work to replace any members who quit.

While some memberships can be run through email, most top quality memberships are run online, which requires some tech know-how or money for tools and services to run it.

Depending on what you offer, you may need to continue to offer new content regularly. For example, if a monthly webinar is part of the membership deal, you need to plan and do a monthly webinar.

Types of Membership Sites

One great thing about membership’s sites is that there are a variety of ways you can offer one. The basic types of membership sites include:

• Courses: Teach members what you know

• Premium Content: Articles and reports

• Industry Insights: When staying on top of trends is important to your market (i.e. financial reports)

• Curated Content or Information: Research and gather information so your members don’t have to such as daily discounts or coupons

• Digital products such as private label right (PLR) content, website themes, apps, or tools

• Community/Mastermind Group

Content in membership sites can be offered in a variety of ways.

One is through email. For example, a course can deliver each lesson by email once a week. A daily deal or industry insight might deliver content daily.
