You see, the best way to market anything online is with great content. Rather it’s through e-books, search engines, reports, blogs, forums or social media sites. I can build a list with my free give away and pitch them on my membership site later.
I will also set up an affiliate program and give my affiliates e-books to both sale and give away that contain links back to my membership site.
I will also translate the site into Spanish and start doing seminars here in Colombia, for free and try and promote my membership site through the seminars. I will also start doing teleseminars online for free and try and get people to my membership site through the teleseminars.
The idea is to build a membership site that is able to support itself as well as sell products on it on.
I can sell:
- Online courses
- Video courses, tutorials
- Audio courses, tutorials
So…after I do a couple teleseminars, for free, and get the hang of it, I can turn around a sell a limited number of tickets to a teleseminar.
On the front end I sell the teleseminar. On the back end I sell both the audio and transcript of the teleseminar, as a product.
Okay, let me see if I can break this down.
1. I need to do research on my competition.
2. research different membership sites and see what I like.
3. plan everything out on a piece of paper.
4. I need a logo and a slogan
One of the things I’ll need to do is get the word out about my new membership site and I can do this by:
Do some advertising on SEO forums.
Give away one week free. Let potential new members get one week free social media tools, tips, strategies, and marketing information. Let them checkout the membership area for one week at no charge or obligation to them.
The idea is that when people get a sample of the membership area it will be so good that the benefits will outweigh the membership fees.
