There are a lot of good reasons for building a membership site — maybe you want to create a private area for your clients, demonstrate your knowledge of a certain topic, develop a new course or share your passion and interests. Or maybe you’re simply looking for a new way to work online.
Whatever your reason for thinking about creating a membership site, there are 3 main benefits that stand out:
1. Leverage your knowledge and become a known expert
You can pack your membership full of relevant knowledge that you already have and voila! you’re now an authority on social media, accounting systems, weight loss techniques or the best food for different breeds of dogs (you’d be surprised what people are interested in).
Whilst having a membership site in and of itself is nothing to be sniffed at, the compound benefits of being seen as an ‘expert’ or ‘authority’ on your subject can do wonders for the rest of your business.
Perhaps you’d like to become a professional speaker or release a book? The extra credibility you gain from sharing your expertise in a membership site can really help.
2. Create a loyal customer base by adding value
A successful membership site is all about value exchange.
I’m not talking monetary value here (although that’s important too) but rather the value that comes from your customers or clients feeling like you have gone above and beyond the call of duty for them and provided them with something pretty darn useful.
If you create value for your members, if you treat them well and provide them with more than they expect, then you’re building up a team of loyal followers who will go forth and spread the word about your site, and most likely any other services or products you offer.
