    I need your help all.

    I have registered a domain, hosted it...

    and have built the membership site.

    But my problems remains that I don't know the kind of 'make money online' content to put into it.

    whether to send it by email to members or upload all the contents there.

    Pls help............

    You say that you have a domain selected and site built. If you properly built these with ' a theme and purpose ' in mind for what your membership service is about, you already have your answer as to what to promote to your members.

    As for how, you should post an area, where the members seek these offers out, in a dedicated section of your membership site or forums.

    Furthermore, you should use email/newsletter and properly present your offers of the week in a newsletter that they expect to open and read, never flooding their inboxes with 10 emails per day of junk, which they will never open and read.

    Give them a simple, SINGLE email per week and give them a link within it back to a webpage, where you give them your newsletter of content and have ad boxes and banners rotating in the sidebars and footers. If they see something they like, they will click it.

    Don't force ads on them...they will unsubscribe from your email list, as well as your site if you fail to provide value. You also have to ' present the oppertunity for them to click on what they are interested in from your offerings ', not flood/annoy them right off your list. Guru do this same technique all the time by flooding email accounts with every little thought that passes their tiny, greedy little minds and within a month, no one reads them unless they are giving something away for free.

    Don't be like them. Be smart and keep your members longer than anyone expects. The average email lister for a guru is 2-6 WEEKS of lifespan before they go cold. I habitually keep members on my lists for a 2 year min., only losing them to a change in lifestyle not needing what I offer at that service anymore. The funny thing is that it is only a technical loss, as 98% of the time, they move from one membership to another in my network, giving me another cycle with them that last for even longer than the last.

    Bottom line: You have to offer your members what they expect from your membership...to know what to offer is already there, in why they joined your membership in the first place...for the themed purpose of the target niche market it is presented within.

    Hope this helps.

    Its called Membernaire.Its available here in Downloads section.

    To answer your original question: Jimmy Brown suggest you start out with 3-5 lesons ready and NOT a full-content site. Just load first few lessons in an autoresponder, schedule them and thats it!:D

    Basically, you have some hidden articles (members only) and some free articles (for the public). Try to use the free articles to rank your site SEO wise.

    Your top notch articles should always be kept private. The free ones should just give bits of info to visitors and not the whole picture.

    just look at all the biggest membership sites and copy them. What do you want to sell? do a google search, find the top sites - for example I did "resell rights" in google - coniac.com came up

    There you go, now just google other terms. If they're in the top 10 then you know they're succeeding

    now look at what they are running, most use the same membership scripts like amember

    Yes, but it's always best to define your model before starting to build the site...

    That will save you a lot of trouble, time and money :)
