Episode #57 The Pros and Cons of Starting a Membership Site

The Pros and Cons of Starting a Membership Site


The Pros and Cons of Starting a Membership Site


As social media changes, our public platforms become vulnerable. 

  • When my Facebook Ads Manager got hacked, maxing out my credit card, I knew I could get it resolved, but it was such a pain.
  • Then I was locked out of my Facebook account–twice!
  • My Instagram account ended up with a copycat account pretending to be me.

Okay, I’m slow, but the writing on the wall became obvious. I needed a different way to be social without social media, or less of it, especially in today’s fragile economy.

My solution was to launch a membership site. 

Owning a membership site and building an engaged community unlocks opportunities to create a safe think tank that is not public.

Although there are many advantages, you must consider if a membership site is right for you.

In this podcast episode, I’ll share what I’ve discovered about membership sites so you can make an informed decision. 

  • What is a membership site?
  • Why would you want to start a community?
  • Discover a common misconception about membership sites.
  • Why community is about interaction and not a transaction
  • What to consider when selecting a community topic?
  • Ways you can keep your community engaged.
  • The difference between a private social group and a private paid community.
  • The Pros and Cons of having a membership site.
  • Platforms that can host a paid community.
  • How to price your community.
