Membership websites are booming!
They really are growing at an enormous rate and they will continue to rise.
If for example, you have an offline business which provides local networking events, live workshops or even you’re delivering an amazing conference at a spectacular manor hotel, it can feel daunting that the current circumstances (i.e the global pandemic) will throw a “spanner in the works”. Now, you are faced with finding an alternative to deliver your event. So, you might be thinking of transitioning online but the question is…
“Where do I start?” or even “will a membership model be a good fit for my business?”
This is when the fun starts for me and the challenges start for you. The problem of “where to start” will definitely paralyse you because all the planning and setup that you’ve put in place already for your events, needs to be restructured and relaunched. You probably have a million ideas floating around in your mind but all you can think about is “where to start planning all this or will it actually work?”
This is where membership sites come into play and it could be the answer to all your problems.
The possibilities are truly endless. By applying some creative thinking and planning, you can turn your offline event, program or even your current 1 on 1 coaching business, online. This will give your paying members a safe portal where they feel supported, accountable and able to learn and access all your valuable information.
It just takes a bit of creative thinking, tenacity and willingness to keep it SIMPLE!
However, when I say keep it simple, I don’t mean choose the less expensive option.
Far from it… every time we are building our business foundations, we need to look at tools and resources that are going to make our life simpler and easier. So, such tools come with a price tag. Memberships are platforms that are going to allow you to build your Foundation Systems faster so that you can achieve a sustainable and scalable business.
According to a recent article from MemberPress, membership site income is the future of the online digital world. I totally agree with this and have been educating my audience towards this.
However, membership sites do not come CHEAP at all. The amount of technical work involved requires web developers and designers to put it all together for you. Also, this is not a DIY option. The level of technical expertise has to be outsourced so that you get a stable system.
IT’S A WRAP
As long as you have a knowledge or skill to teach which others want to master, you will have the potential to turn it into a membership site.
The opportunities are truly endless when it comes to the type of membership site layers it can have. For example, I help Coaches and Creative Entrepreneurs build group membership programs that generate a consistent client base and cash flow. I do this by saving them time and handling all the tech “nuts and bolts” for them.
I sometimes jokingly say that “I take the eeeek out of tech”. If you want to find out more, I’m inviting you to jump on the membership “bandwagon” and seize the opportunity by Building Your Group Program while Escaping Your 9 to 5.
