A good business idea happens to be related to a niche that will just never get old. The niche will always stay relevant on the web which is necessary if you hope to make some profits off of it. This will eventually transition to a monthly or residual income if you play your cards right.

If that sounds too good to be true, making your very own membership site sums it all up and makes it all believable. This membership site has the advantage of being able to make multiple sales resulting to multiple payments going to you. The pattern goes on and can even exponentially increase once you find other affiliates that want to help you promote.

The membership site can take the form of an ordinary website, forum, or anything that has a registration and login system. Basically, you are restricting access to people that are willing to pay for a fee. Most people that organize these sites would put their more valuable information on private sections that are exclusive to paid members so they get a sense of reward.

This system sounds flawed because smarter people can just look for quality information using their favorite search engine. However, high quality information can be tricky to find and the simplest searches may lead to some irrelevant or generic pages. Think of your membership site to be a good source of expert information where paid members no longer have to go through all the trouble in searching online for quality information and training.

Since you are taking the role of an expert by providing quality information, you deserve whatever fees that you decide to impose on people that are interested to join your site and access your content. After all, these people will understand that your information is well worth the money. If doctors and attorneys get paid for a quality service, you should too.

Membership sites work in a similar fashion where it can contain all sorts of useful topics such as guides on how to make more money or exclusive resources that help them design websites from scratch and have them market the sites effectively. Once they realize the content is all there, they should be committed to hold on with their site membership.

Depending on your target audience, you can keep things simple or go complex which is more recommended. Text lessons should work if they are well written but people will appreciate live webinars, video tutorials, and other types of comprehensive media.

Those that haven't made membership sites in the past will wonder how much the monthly fee should be. There is no magic number here as the right figure depends on how rich the content is.

Put yourself in the position of others that want to access quality information. Would you pay this amount every month? Once you planted a reasonable figure, you will surely notice some growth. Things can get unpredictable though so be sure to experiment with different price ranges until you get the majority happy while you enjoy the monthly income.
