Featuring Experts Tim Kerber, CEO of MemberGate Solutions and Ryan Lee, Success Membership Program Entrepreneur
People just like you are running highly successful member programs in such diverse niches as embroidery, jazz guitar, massage, wrestling, even sky diving!
One of the biggest barriers to quitting your j-o-b to work for yourself is giving up the predictability of that regular paycheck. But with a member program often referred to as a "continuity" or a "subscriber" program members eagerly sign on to receive exclusive access to a steady flow of information (like Consumer Reports), products (think Netflix), or resources. As long as you make good on your promise to consistently deliver quality content, as a member program owner you'll receive a steady flow of revenue in the form of member fees that are automatically billed on a monthly basis.
Tim Kerber, CEO of MemberGate Solutions, Inc and MembershipSiteOwner.com and Ryan Lee, a former physical education teacher who now earns seven figures from 48 subscription websites in the fitness field, answer frequently asked questions about how to start and profit from a member program.
Whether your passion is salsa, gardening, art, or wrestling, there are a myriad of ways to turn what you already know into your livelihood. If you are drawn to the idea of a more regular, predictable income stream that has the potential to be extremely profitable, then running your own member site may be something worth exploring.
