Membership sites are all the rage and there’s good reason. If you
operate a web-based business…if you’re a service professional…if
you have expertise you want to deliver…then what’s the most cost
effective way to reach and transform the most people?
From the points of view of delivering content and income generation,
a membership program is one of the best education systems around.
We’ve been operating Blogging & Beyond for nearly two years. It’s not optimized as well as it could be and will be going through a radical change soon.
Not long ago an amazing training site was launched call Teaching Sells.
It’s an awesome collection of content – video, screencasts, audio,
transcripts, discussion forum – that walks you through the set up,
launch and marketing of a membership program. As Brian Clark, founder
of the program say, “Teaching Sells.”
I’ve studied a lot of the material in Teaching Sells and it is impeccable. It is details, step by step content. It is thorough and new content and modules are frequently added.
My stumbling block to implementing their strategies was the actual site — the mechanics of setting up a training site and integrating it with the
Wordpress platform, a membership platform, a shopping cart, etc.
But this week a new solution was launched and we’re now in full
swing of creating a brand new training program for you. Details on
Extreme Member launched on Tuesday with 200 trial sites available.
I don’t know if the sites are gone yet. I jumped in and got my trial
site for $2.95 so I could explore the system. And I did so because EM
comes very highly recommended by my mastermind partner, Sherman Hu.
Sherman is so enthusiastic about Extreme Member that he’s set up
Facebook Group and has created additional tutorials that he’s giving
solves the problem of building the actual membership site. I don’t
think it’s ‘plug-n-play’ but the integration of site, membership
functionality and ecommerce are all bundled into one system.
Extreme Member offers business owners and entrepreneurs a cost-effective, all-in-one
integrated web-based membership software platform that offers:
- Solid Membership Site Management
- Best-of-Breed Email Marketing & Smart Autoresponders
- Efficient Affiliate Management Systems
- User-friendly Online Site Layout Tools
- Premium Payment Gateway integration with Paypal, Authorize.net and WorldPay,
- and much more…
I’ve been thinking about this for the last couple of days and I believe Teaching Sells and Extreme Member offer a phenomenal one-two punch if you want to learn how to develop, create, implement, and market a membership program.
Membership programs are also known as continuity programs. You
provide amazing, valuable content and people pay you for your content,
knowledge, expertise and access on a regular, ongoing, monthly basis. A
membership program does take work, and they can be very lucrative.
I’ll be exploring my Extreme Member
system this weekend. I want to know how it works, all the ins and outs.
Then, because I have so much on my plate, I’ll be outsourcing the set
up to an expert in membership programs. Patsi and I have the content
and will develop how it’s delivered and someone else will do the
implementation. Stay tuned…
