Marketing Safari

The Hunt for an Honest Merchant

 

video

 


This is a short video presentation that i took from the official site (i hope this will not be a problem ) about what is  Free Monthly Websites 2.0 , the content that they offering to you and how you can make this offer useful. I will not say much about it today,all is in the video above.Just want to point your attention over the honest review from one of the owners, Mr. John Thornhill ,the way that he presenting the actual content of his product. I will quote the official sales page short  :

'' No Gimmicks. No Catches - Just an Awesome Website every month...For Free!'' 

And this is  what a serious man want to hear from a promotional material - Exactly what the product is for,what can you do with ,and why you should give your money . Although with Free Monthly Websites 2.0 the case is slightly different because you can take full advantage of the product for free (and this is maybe one of the weak points if you see it from the merchant's point of view).
The actual free offer is good enough to give you a quite nice financial results by itself alone, but of course there is a paid opportunity that gives  you a lot more benefits.
You can call me ''Old-fashioned'' or even ''Eccentric'' but i really think that what we are seeing here is the most wanted and hard to find species (if you don't mind Mr. Thornhill)  in the Jungle of Internet Marketing - an Honest Merchant !
Can you believe it ?:-)
Watch the clip,make your research over the creators of the suggested product,and take your decision wisely. I have decided for me already,and looking forward with impatience for the next  issue of  Free Monthly Websites 2.0 .

Do we understand what Membership Site is ?



A Membership site can produce very high profits and this is why they are becoming very popular, but many people still do not fully understand them and in particular how money is made from them.

I would like to expose here my understanding about the topic and hope to be helpful for anyone that 
might have a certain doubts or concerns.

First thing that comes in mind is the amount of initial investment needed.Very affordable by all means.Second thing- you don’t need to maintain an inventory,buy or rent storage space, don’t have to buy supplies, etc.   The reason for all this is of course the product that actually you provide via membership site. 
Most membership sites promote, or sell intangible items, meaning information of one kind or another. 
Other products like software,website graphic packs etc. are just additional goods to your main product- serving by providing information.
 

There is a business research showing that the marketplace for intangible items can produce much more income than that of tangible items. Like I said ,what you are selling is information and you know that information is extremely valuable .You can find examples since the early ages 
as well as  present days example- you order someone to create a product (software,research,case study ,report,etc.) for you,than sell it,collecting all the money from this product and still you don't have the knowledge how to make it yourself,so after all, knowledge is where the money are born.

Think about different high profile companies and which ones are more successful. If we only compare Google (intangible) with Microsoft (tangible), you might truly be surprised at what you come up with. 
In fact it is said that Google has bested Microsoft in both profits and in Internet web users, (even though this is taken from an old interview of Marissa Mayer ,when she was working for Google,but anyway..it make sense for me).


The Web is considered a global market place with millions of products that are bought and sold everyday - True! But it is way more than that. People nowadays look to the internet to access information,they want quality information and most of them are willing to pay for it in order to save research time.We can say that the Information is what provides revenue on the Internet and in this way is the best legal way of earning money there. Here is the point where the membership site is going to ''Hit the lights' 'and start making money like a Rockstar.:-) 

                  What is the purpose of Membership Site?



Membership sites focus on a specific group of people or niche, and offer important information that these people want, need and in many cases are willing to pay for.
The best way to find a niche is to start researching what people are looking for and how you can help giving them information on a particular topic. There are different ways to understand where the most interests of your future subscribers are..most obvious is of course the good old  keyword search,but i found out that Google is not the best place for placing that kind of research.Why? Simple - the fact that many people are tipping a particular word in the search engine doesn't mean that they are meaning to pay for it,and after all this is what we are searching for.The good paying audience.Where we can find them? At the Marketplace for sure! Good place for niche research can be ClickBank Marketplace,JV Zoo,and any other big affiliate marketing site.There you can see exactly which niche oriented products are best sellers,check the gravity of related products in order to be sure that in this particular niche are people ready to pay.
Another very clever way of research that you can find useful is checking sites that are for sale on Flippa.Search for big priced sites,than use some tools to see what are their keywords for example,or you can collect other extremely important information that you can incorporate in your sites.If you don't know or have any tools for that purpose,i will put some links down below.
 

I will stop right here so you can grab that links and go researching around.You will be surprised how much information and good ideas you can get when you examine the construction of some successful sites.

I am leaving you now,and hope you will be interested in the next topics :

-Why do people prefer Membership Sites?

-How do Membership Sites Make Their Money?

The Importance of an Affiliate Program to Membership Sites




                         Howdy ,your host Wicked Baron here....


As i mentioned in previous entry,so called  ''Affiliate programs'' are  important tool 
for building a successful membership site.

Let's make a brief overview here for those of us that are not quite familiar with the term ''Affiliate Program''.

An affiliate program isn't really a program.
It's a business arrangement,also known as associate program or referral program,which allows you to earn money without producing your own product.
When join an affiliate program the affiliate marketer earns compensation based on a certain value for each visit (Pay per click), registrant (Pay per lead), or a commission for each customer or sale (Pay per Sale), or any combination.When running a membership site you can participate in various programs,as long as they are related to your site's niche.Your goal as the ''Owner'' is to make the right collection of information and related products for your customers,and give them easy access to products that they would otherwise have to search the Internet to find.
 

On the other side , you can let other companies post your ad on their sites and pay commissions for sales of your product or memberships.Sure, you may give away a percent of your profit to an affiliate, but for example  70 % of something is better than 100 % of nothing. You will make up in sales quantity what you may lose in percentage of your own net. It’s quite worthwhile in the long run.
Affiliate marketing is only one of many tools that you can use in your business , very popular and easy to maintain.
 

        Extremely important is to avoid AffiliateSpamming!.


Spammers are severely fined and the anti-spam laws are that the merchants whose affiliates spam are being held responsible for the spamming as well. So caution is well advised to merchants.

Merchants who are considering adding an affiliate strategy to their online sales channel should research the different technological solutions available to them. As affiliate marketing has matured many affiliate merchants have refined their terms and conditions to prohibit affiliates from spamming. Some types of affiliate management solutions include: standalone software, hosted services, shopping carts with affiliate features, and third party affiliate networks.
 

Right now there is a lot of debate about the affiliate practice of Spamdexing and many affiliates have converted from sending email spam to creating large volumes of automatically generated web pages  as a way of search engine optimizing their sites. This is sometimes referred to as spamming the search engine results. Spam is the biggest threat to organic search engines whose goal is to provide quality search results for keywords or phrases entered by their users.


There is of course many more ''Tips and Tricks'' when it goes about running a successful membership site   and i will try to cover most of them in some of my next articles.


A very good example for successful membership site is Free Monthly Websites 2.0 ,property of John Thornhill and  Dave Nicholson                ( Yes,this is an affiliate link ) where you can see exactly how the things are done wright. Providing excellent product ( free of charge) , there is an elegant offer for paid membership .No demanding,no hand twisting,just showing you in detail the benefits of paid membership. According to the quality of their free product,there is no doubt that you will get the best possible quality content for your money.

I will not tell you how good are those monthly offers,see yourself if you want.
They work for me just perfect,i hope you will find them useful too. 

Sincerely yours:

Create a Successful Membership Site

                                         


Many people are looking for the ultimate way to make money online.
By running a membership site you can make a reliable monthly income and
be self reliant, work from home and put all of your business online, which in theory is a great idea and can be done.
A large group of people that look forward to what you have to say and who trust what you do online-it is every internet marketers dream.                                                         
Does this sound good? You can achieve this through a membership web site.

It is said that membership sites have increased in popularity by over 500% in the last few years, and a very hot product, believe it or not, is information.Owning a membership site allows you to sell quality content or information to your members and get paid quite nicely to do it.There are mostly two types of membership sites; the paid membership site, and the free membership site

The paid membership site has a certain limited number of members who pay you a certain amount monthly, bi-monthly, twice a year or yearly to access the information they need. These fees can vary from between $5 to $10 to $200 depending on your industry and what you are selling. The benefits to this type of membership site are obvious in that you produce a residual income and because almost 70% of your members will be recurring members then you don’t have to focus so much attention to attracting new clients.But how does the free membership site work since you’re not charging a fee ?
                                                                          
                                                                 The answer is - Trust!

You have established yourself as an expert in your field to your membership group. You have done this by offering quality information they can use, and information that your reader is looking for. Of course one of the issues with free membership sites is that you always have to be adding fresh content,but at the same time when you offer free information, you also offer other services or products that are related with your business.

This is called affiliate marketing, and the benefit is that you can market any number of products and services.

The Importance of an affiliate program to Free Membership Sites will be a subject of discussion in my next article.
Hope you enjoy reading and found some useful information here that will help you with your decision about setting your own membership site.

Actually you can start today for free,and see if running membership site is good for you with this really great offer from Free Monthly Websites 2.0
                                        

                                          100 % free and working.The choice is yours.
