    Well after reading this thread here in its entirety I've decided to launch my own similar membership site in my own city!

    Thank you grafxextreme for your excellent thread!!


    I've decided to write this journal for two reasons

    1. To document my progress so everyone on BHW can benefit
    2. To make sure I take action as procrastination is a big problem!

    So, I've already registered a domain name, designed promo cards and sent them off to printing, and ordered business card displays. I am now in the midst of touching up my sales letter, and maybe adding some videos to it.

    Once I have done this I will probably start creating my first few months worth of content, as well as outline the basics of my lesson plans.

    I will update this thread periodically and my ultimate goal is to have 1,000 paying subscribers in 6 months!

    Hope you are inspired by my journey, and remember to take action! BTW this was posted in this section as I will mainly be using offline promotional methods.

    Good luck RG.

    What software will you use - a WP plugin?

    I'm going to use an autoresponder, due to simplicity, and content control and delivery (these tips were mentined in grafixextreme's thread)

    No one is sure about anything! But I will try it and If I fail, lesson learned, but if I succeed, rinse and repeat.

    make sure you have enough low hanging fruit, low entry price points, and free crap to make people motivated to join.

    once they are in you can cpa/aff or otherwise crosspromote

    all the best

    i was thinking of this myself, but how would you set it all up
    i was thinking
    Landing page= free report = opt in / register to receive
    then move the free line and guilt them into buying membership?
    all this w/ amember

    how easy is amember to set up?
    specifically, to look professionally out of the box w/o css issues

    Life has it's own distractions.

    You get busy DOING and forget to report. 8)

    grafix is right I actually have been busy putting this together, not trolling bhw as much. I will report back once I have some solid updates.

    I am curious as well. Creating a membership site seems like a great moneymaker, but I always doubt I will be able to maintain fresh content...

    So what happened? When starting a journal you are supposed to add entries so we can see your progress

    My guess is he's making so much money and is so busy counting it that he just doesn't have time to drop by and say 'Yo' to his old homies here in the net-hood.






    NOT!!!!! :D
