Building a membership site with plug and play software
Building a membership site is not for everyone. Providing value to members on an ongoing basis can be exciting and motivating. There are literally millions of people looking for the next good idea to help with their own problems.
Sometimes it is easy to take for granted how much we actually know. For example, think about a subject you know quite well or could learn because it is of interest to you. Had anyone already asked you for help, or do you think they would if you became knowledgeable in that area?
For me, it was business, computers and investing. Over the years of trial and error, my experience and knowledge grew to the point where people were asking me for help or asking questions that I may have known the answer to.
I’m confident that everyone, no matter their experience level, has something of value to a person with less information and experience than they have. And there will always be people with less (and more) information. The point is that no-one on the planet has your “unique” story and experience. Believe it or not, others may be interested in hearing it!
You might have heard the saying “In the land of the blind, a person with one eye rules.” It’s just a metaphor for not underestimating your own talent, capability and opportunity. It is yours for the asking.
For example, this site is a real mess. Horrible to look at, horrible to read and changes every other day… Why?
Glad you asked!!
I could be doing a lot of things right now, but for some reason, experimenting with this site just grabbed my attention and it became addictive. I wanted to see the results of change. I wanted to understand how traffic and visitors move/respond and rebel against this faceless tyrant who continually puts crap on a 3 character domain name.
If you have read this far, you are in the minority. Most people leave after the heading arrives in their browser and realization sets in that this is definitely not what they are after.
For that, I do owe you something of value. You have invested valuable time in reading several paragraphs and ultimately have given me a little more information on how people respond to different articles/presentations/advertising and ramblings.
You will find in this post something that I actually did find quite interesting and valuable. Admittedly, the links to lead to offers provided by some exceptional software developers. What struck me as interesting was their genuine connection to really provide great service and a really solid product.
Software these days is becoming a commodity. The difference is less and less in the unique mystery of how it is made and more and more in the service/support you receive from the vendor.
The guys at XooGuu LLC have done an awesome job at convincing me they can support their product for years to come. Don’t be fooled. Just because my affiliate links are below, does not mean you should avoid their products. I’ve read their 22 recommended products for use online and ended up buying most of them. One is a desktop timer to capture your tasks in blocks of time which in turn increases focus – it’s an awesome little widget to improve productivity.
Anyway, you can read the rest for yourself. In terms of what I can give you in return for reading this far… hmmm… “Okay” how about this. Over the last 10 months, I have personally lost over 100 pounds in weight. Usual drill, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, working too much, high stress etc etc. I won’t bore you with the detail — if you are reading this, you know what I’m saying or you know someone who has gone through the drill.
Here is a link to how I did it. I have not written about it before and I’ll most likely delete it in a couple of days. Until I do, this is your only way to reach this information. It is not an affiliate link, it is my personal message to you on my journey over the last 10 months. It is nothing magical, or drug induced. It is a one line, four word statement of how I lost more than 100 pounds in 10 months (the password is 100). If you are interested, read it here…>>
Thanks for reading and onward and upward!!
Members pay you every month for access to content you create…or you hire out to others.
You could even create a free level where you tease them with useful but incomplete content. Whet their appetite first so they’re craving for more…hiding just behind the paid door.
But how do you set this up, technology-wise?
No more frustrations. No more hassles.
