It seems that more and more online marketers are running websites as membership sites. In this article we will take a look at the reasons for this and you can then decide if you should proceed in the same way.
If you research top internet marketers, you will notice that they offer membership sites for their clients.
They tend to run coaching type sites were members can get more personalized feedback and attention for their money.
Many marketers will set up a free membership site where they offer advice and instructional material. Then during the course of the membership there will be an offer to upgrade for coaching, access to products etc. This is a great way to offer value, allows people to get to know, like, and trust you. Then when an offer is made they are more willing to accept it.
It is easier than you think!
There are other reasons why running a membership site is something for you to consider. First, most membership sites are easy to set up, and it is even possible to set them up for free.
