    I just thought of a little idea which may be of interest to some of you, but before I put it in to action I thought I would ask for your opinion.

    Who would be interested in a site which offers membership to a variety of other membership sites such as wealthyaffiliate, seo-blackhat, plrights, nichebot, etc... for a discounted price of say $5-$20? Members would be able to login and access a ton of sites while only paying for the price of one (or less).

    I've got some spare time at the moment (the project I was working on has been delayed) and I thought this might be something to set up in the mean time.

    Let me know what you think...

    this sure works for porn sites; one membership gives access to many but adult sites trade traffic in a different way than mainstream ones. I am curious to see if it works for you as I have a couple of ideas on my own.

    its a good idea if you have enough sites to drip feed into your membership site.

    i did it in the diet industry and small business sales and marketing industry and got a load of sign ups.

    to make it sticky you do need to add free content over and above just the reduced memberships you include in you monthly accesses and new membership sites every month as well

    for some reason people are now looking to have value added everytime they make a payment.

    This way you can maximise the time your clients stay with you.

    The bottom line is (unless its porn which I've not tried) people will only value maybe 1 or 2 of the memberships they have access to and go direct to them unless your site is cheaper than even just the one membership site. That's why you have to keep adding new sites to them to let them try them out and stick on long enough to find out if next months new site will be better than the one they like just now.

    Hope I make sense with this.

    all the best

    Ok, thanks for your replies. I've decided to go through with it (I've got nothing better to do) and I'd like to ask what membership sites you would recommend I include in the membership.

    For example Plrights, CB Affiliate Formula, Wealthy Affiliate, Aweber, Word Tracker...

    if you can get me aweber accounts with a discount of $20 I take them ;)

    (just kidding, I know where you're coming from - unfortunately I think people will more likely join as affiliates for the programs you mentioned and get themselves the rebate - wish you good luck anyway!)

    Yes, but say if the affiliate program paid out a 75% commission on a $30 product they would only get $22.50 off opposed to if they bought it through my site, where they'd get $27 off and don't run the risk of getting caught.

    This sounds interesting I think other good sites would be traffic domination and traffic geyser.Lets us know when things are happening and what the deal is going to be.

    W

    just use your judgement to decide what is the best in each category of IM that you think should be in it

    Then I would go to them all at the same time and let them know who else is going to be involved and if 1 says no go to your second choice in that arena.

    I did that before for a business building seminar and I went to the top guys and when you use the other guys names you gain credibility instantly and you also get on the inside track with them sometimes. It would help if you can get a definate from one of the big names before you go to the others.

    maybe someone here can help out.

    some suggestions for areas to cover:-

    CPA
    adwords
    ebay
    keywords
    autoresponder
    graphics
    video posting
    SEO
    membership site software

    hope that helps

    os....
