Welcome to another edition of The Affiliate Buzz, where affiliate marketers have been coming to be inspired, informed and motivated to succeed since way back in 2003. Do you want to have your affiliate site produce predictable, recurring income? James and Arlene have just finished setting up two new membership sites. In this episode, they’ll share what they’ve learned about turning your passion -that is your area of subject matter expertise - into a membership site with recurring income.
What’s in a Membership Site?
Membership sites offer their members access to things the general public doesn’t have. You can provide value to your members by providing things like:
- Video tutorials
Of course, you’ll also want to create opt-ins, lead magnets and a sales letter. That sounds like a lot of work, and it is. James and Arlene will tell you how to do it.
Is There a Course in You?
Yes! Arlene will tell you that there’s a course in everyone, they just need to act on it. So how does one go about creating a course? Arlene will describe how she worked with one of their clients to develop a comprehensive course, complete with multiple lessons, workbooks and video tutorials.
She didn’t do it alone. It was a collaboration between herself, the client (Dr. Raj Banerjee) and a writer hired from Upwork. Arlene will describe their process - how she downloaded information from the Dr. Banerjee’s brain, made it into an outline, had the outline written up into a lesson and the lesson into a video script. It’s a theme we’ve heard before from James and Arlene. Create high quality content into multiple formats so that you have more to offer your customers and customers can consume the content in whatever format they prefer.
