    Disclosure Notes: 1. I originally had posted a thread at the link below but that was when it was still in development, now the site is ready to go and I would like a few more partners.
    Code:
    [URL]http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/joint-ventures/49019-offline-marketing-membership-site-partnership.html[/URL]
    2. The site has just been appoved with CB as a membership product so if you want to market it online and not participate with the site itself, I'll have it live in the market place soon....

    If You ever wanted to run a membership site but don't want to go through the pain of setting it up than this is for you...

    I am now Officially looking for partners for the membership site located at ZAPSA.COM

    Zapsa is designed to be marketed offline to newbies or even online if you can find a niche to sell the subscriptions.

    What will this cost me?

    Figured I should cover this first. NOTHING. I paid everything out of my own pocket to get this created. (granted most the scripts I found here, but not all) So this will cost you nothing what so ever if you want to be a partner.

    Wanna know what this JV gets you?

    -You can charge any price you want.

    - Keep 100% of all subscriptions you bring in. Paid directly to you from the member.

    - A personal section to post any information you want , or to upsell customers.

    - Need some hosting space? Zapsa has a reseller account so I can offer you and your customers a free cpanel hosting account for free.

    How does it work?

    If you become a partner we will create a subscribe now button with your paypal i.d. and then create you a sales page with that button.

    You have options with the sales page: A. You can write up your own and we will upload it, or B. you can use the standard one created for the site with your payment link and a note saying you will be providing their support.

    You get to pick the name of your sales page (zapsa.com/yoursalespage/ or yoursalespage.zapsa.com)

    You can charge what ever you like as long as it isn't below the minimum recommended price of $9.99 a mo.

    You can market it locally in newspapers, fliers, etc, or however you like. Just make sure you market the link that goes to your sales page.

    What do you have to do?

    The main thing is that you will need to offer personal support to the people you bring in. It doesn't have to be much, but you will need to provide your AIM Name to your customers. Why? Because since I'm allowing partners to charge what they like, and not taking a cut, I shouldn't be responsible for handling every support request that comes from them. Secondly, you can use the fact that it will be YOU offering personal support, and thus, you can set a price that you feel that support is worth.

    The other thing that will be required is that you assist myself and the other partners with updating content and methods on the site. I only ask that the partners post just ONE (1) money making method a month. You can post more if you like, but only 1 will be required. It can be on any topic. It can be rehashed methods, whatever, as long as it's an update.

    Is there a catch?

    Nope. Again all I ask is that one article or newbie method a month be posted by you. It might not seem like much but consider 5 people making one update a month will keep members happy. Happy members will not cancel their subscriptions. Happy subscribers keep money flowing into your pocket.

    How do we get started?

    Just PM me.

    Just answer 3 Questions in the PM:
    Are you serious about making this work?
    What's your plan to advertize and get members?
    What will the first method you post going to be about, and how soon will it take before you can email me it for review?

    I'll get back to everyone.

    What If I Flake out and Don't do anything to help the site?
    If you decide that you like collecting money from members monthly but you don't like to pitch in a measly 1 update a month, or YOUR customers are complaining that YOU are not helping them, then your account will be blocked, your sales page will be removed and your customers will be asked to cancel their subscriptions and resubscribe under other partners who WILL provide the support they need and deserve.

    That's It.

    So there it is. This is my open offer to ALL BHW'ers. I never would have even been able to do this had it not been for this site. Hell, doing a membership site never even crossed my mind before coming here. I am offering everything I can to give you the most I can out of this JV offer. This offer may close in the future but for now, anyone can get in if they want to and will be of help.

    Thanks again guys.

    For now... I'll be honest, I don't have a real one yet.

    The only upsell I have is Hosting. I signed up as a reseller just for this. The way it's set up ever new member will get a small amount of hosting space in a cpanel account. 1 DB, and just enough space for a blog or two. The upsell would be a bigger paid hosting account.

    Now for any partners that get involved, you would be welcome to upsell the members. You will have a section to make blogposts in. I wouldn't mind if you sold them anything EXCEPT for hosting, or another membership site. If you had ebooks, or whatever, that would be fine by me as long as the posts didn't come off as spammy, but more of like a 'review & sell'
