Where to start. Many of you on here know me... And know i already have a membership site that make decent income already. ($500-1000) depending on the day. I kind of got lucky with this whole IM business because I knew nothing about it, and paid someone to build the site for me.(overpriced dude). And got an email list signed up for a mass mailer(800/month) and away i went. I actually found BHW researching Mass Mailing and i found the section here on email marketing (RIP). and started reading and learning from some genius people. Well for about a year now, I have been dabbling in IM trying lots of different things just because i was curious to see how the different ways to rake in the money... I even tried e-whoring . Some things made money some things didnt. But my bread and butter has always been with my membership site. ANYWHO! The Goal of this Thread! During the past year i hit google and this site on how to build websites. I taught myself how to be the shitty web developer that i am... Thank Goodness for Wordpress Templates! I want to start from scratch another membership site that I can build from the ground up, using the techniques I have learned here along the way... So i guess we could categorize this as a journey. What i want is to share some things that i have learned as well as pick the brains of the experts here of things that i can implement to get more members of my site... This will be a testing trial and error of things on this site. I will Do my best to give who ever i got the idea from the credit... Also if you see a thread that you would like implemented please post in a reply here and i will try it, and report on the results. I DO: want to share results answer questions on things i've tried Take advice Give advice(where i can) Try new methods on this site for traffic to my site. show google analytics and subscription updates. GROW MY MEMBERSHIP SITE I Don't: Want to share my URLS My Niche So please be a doll and don't ask. Plenty of niches to go around. Think of your own and implement some of these ideas. Lets get started! I have already started about 2 weeks ago and already have 5 members to my site. So the next couple posts will be updates to catch us up to this point. I will go through some steps to get to the point of where I am. I hope to make this site bigger and better than my other one... We shall see, only way to find out is try. Why do this? Well one thing I have learned outside of IM is that keeping a business journal helps you be able to track and measure your progress and learn from the past. I am doing this already, so I decided to share it online at BHW. and I get bored easily. Wish us all luck!
