Micro Sites And Massive
Introduction To 20 Minute Membership
One of the easiest ways to build a profitable online business is by developing a "micro niche membership"
You're probably already familiar with just how profitable membership sites can be. Everyone knows that
there's an absolute fortune to be made in building high quality continuity websites.
After all, you aren't just building a website - you are building a COMMUNITY of
But we don't all have time for a full featured membership program, and for certain niche markets or topics,
a full-scale membership site might simply be "overkill".
For example, there are many different niche markets where subscribers only need certain answers or solutions
to their problems. Or, perhaps you'd like to create a paid
community based on short-term training, coaching or time sensitive information. Perhaps you'd like to run a fixed term membership site that can be set on
complete autopilot, ending after each cycle.
This is where "micro
membership sites" become your secret weapon to being able to tap into the hungriest niche markets with bite
sized membership sites!
With a micro membership website, you are never bogged down by constant updates, or forced into spending
every waking moment maintaining your membership program.
In fact, most of the time you can set up your micro membership sites on complete autopilot, creating it once - and then charging for continued access
over a fixed or short-term period.
For example, you could set up a micro membership site on an 8 week basis, where subscribers pay a small
amount every week to gain access to relevant content and information, or you could set it up so that they pay
only once, upfront, for access to the entire course that they can download and digest at their own
From the busy marketer to the new business owner with minimal marketable experience, micro niche membership
sites are simply faster and easier to create.
Plus, because of just how simplistic they are, you can create more of them, giving yourself the
opportunity to venture into countless markets, expand your outreach and maximize your
And speaking of maximizing your online profits, even though micro niche membership sites are designed to be
set at a lower price point, you can actually make MORE money with them, simply because people can afford to join
and due to the lower costs there is less resistance, making micro
niche membership sites even easier to convert.
Let's take a closer look at how you can start building a profitable micro niche membership site of your
Profitable – Quick Start
When it comes to developing a micro niche membership site, there is no shortage of options available to you.
You could set up your program on a fixed term basis, long-term basis, on an ‘a la carte' basis where visitors must first become free members in
order to purchase content or products.
You could simply create your micro niche membership site to be used as a "loss
In marketing, a "loss leader" is a product or offer designed around collecting leads and building
credibility within a niche.
Loss Leaders are free or low cost products that help merchants
develop a presence within their market, or to simply "warm up" customers by giving them a sampling of a lower-priced product
with the majority of profit being made through upsells and backend offers.
Micro niche membership sites are incredibly powerful as loss leaders because not only can you build a
targeted list of subscribers, and database of potential customers, but you're also building a community of buyers - people who
are interested in your products, and who have taken the necessary steps to become part of your inner
Rather than creating a loss leader that might attract 'freebie seekers", these people have actually
responded to and successfully completed a positive 'action' (signing
up to become a member of your membership site).
You can then use your micro niche membership site to develop relationships with your members, build rapport,
trust and credibility so that you can continue to offer them higher end products later on. Your micro niche membership site could simply be the entry into your
entire sales funnel!
If you are interested in creating a micro niche membership site around the "fixed term" platform, here is a quick overview of how it
With fixed term membership programs you aren’t required to provide long-term updates, or keep adding
products into the program. Instead, you can create a series of updates or a collection of products once, and
then simply recycle that content as existing members complete the
program and new ones join.
It runs on a continuous cycle, and older members complete the program and new members join. All you have to do is focus on promoting your micro niche membership
This means you create the content for the entire course once and then re-use that content indefinitely, only
updating it as new information becomes available, or in the event you feel your content needs to be updated
based on changes in the market. You can also set up a fixed term
membership to run on any interval you choose.
Think about the different ways that you could create valuable proprietary content for your membership site that your market will respond to,
· Reports &
Also, be sure to record everything you do, because it can always be used inside of your membership
If you give an interview, host a conference call, conduct a workshop, training, whatever it is – always record it. This material can be used as bonus products, or featured as
an up sell or backend upgrade or even as your main product!
Another idea is to create a micro niche membership site around specialized training, consulting
Coaching websites offer clients consultation services for a set fee or on a recurring basis, depending on
how you intend to set up your program (offering either a pre-set schedule or allocated time for personal
consulting that your subscribers can use whenever they need it).
With a coaching membership site clients have access to either personal or group support, usually conducted
through email, live chat sessions or webinars.
You could also set up a private ‘students only’ forum where your subscribers could post questions or
requests for help on specific subjects.
Think of the profit potential for a
If you had only 200 paying subscribers at $50 a month for access into a private forum where they can post
questions to you that you can answer publicly for the entire community to benefit from, you would earn $10,000 a
month just for spending a couple of hours a day answering questions and providing
You could then offer a higher priced coaching program that was open to only 25 of these students, for a flat
rate of $1,000 each, where they gain personal access to you for private coaching and consulting.
This would generate an additional $25,000 from the same community!
The profit potential for a coaching style
membership site is phenomenal.
If you have specialized knowledge in any industry or you simply have the experience needed to help newcomers
in your market, you can easily set up a very profitable coaching based membership site with very little start up
costs or time involved.
