Create a Membership Site

What is a Membership Site?

A membership site, like the one above, is a private website, with exclusive content available only to the signed-up members.

It usually provides members with the ability to interact with each other. They pay a monthly fee for being a member of the website. 

Suitable For

People who like to interact with, guide, and lead a community. 

Skills Required

1. In-depth knowledge of any particular domain.

2. Ability to research new things and constantly generate new and helpful content.

Time Required For Creating A Membership Site –

Depends on the domain expertise of the creator.

Tips

1. In the beginning, keep the fee for joining the membership site ridiculously low. Aim to create a minimum viable product instead of creating a perfect product. You can always improve your site in later stages.

2. If you’ve never been a part of any membership site till now, consider joining a few related to your domain. Study those sites.

3. Find what’s working well for you and other members of that site? What’s makes it worth the monthly fee and how could you replicate this?

4. Interact and engage with members. Your membership site shouldn’t be the one that the only drip feeds the content, with little or no input from the owner.

You must provide insider access for your members who want to communicate with you. Even if you’re busy, you must spend at least half an hour a day to get involved with your membership site.

You can do this in many ways, such as you can interact with the members answer their questions, or even lead an interaction inside the forum.

5. Run group events and challenges to increase members’ engagement with your site. Organize regular events, challenges, or similar.

Make it easy for members to participate. Offer prizes, display leaderboards, or similar such things create a great incentive for members to participate and get involved.

6. Periodically review what’s working and what isn’t. Try to adapt the site based on the members’ needs.

For example, if you offer most of your content in text format but your members are engaging more with the video content then shift from text-based to video content.

7. Try to introduce new initiatives and see how your audience is responding to it. Such as live Q&A calls or similar.

But be careful, don’t overwhelm members with several different initiatives at once. Introduce one thing at a time. 

How to Monetize

Monetization is very simple. More members sign up to your website more income you generate from the monthly fees that members pay.

    Amazing post. Membership sites, if done right, can not only be super profitable, but is a good way of generating monthly income! You put in the work once to gain a customer, and it’s much easier to retain a customer than a new customer. 

    Great tips you got there. Some of the challenges I can imagine when just starting out a membership site is retaining the customer. The methods you’ve mentioned will definitely help!

    A membership site is something that has always been on the horizon for me, but timewise it has so far been unattainable. I think before you start a site like this you need to make sure you are going to have the time to create new and valuable content for it in order to keep up with your subscriber’s demands.

    If you can get this right you could be very successful, as this is recurring income, which is better than selling something once off. Do you know of any great WordPress themes to use to get this running, or would you need to purchase special software?

      Membership sites are great but you gotta get the members.

      Some great themes on WordPress are :-

      Divi. Divi is one of the most popular multi-purpose WordPress themes on the market. Ultra. Ultra is the most powerful and flexible WordPress theme created by Themify. Beaver Builder. Astra. OceanWP.
