Questions Anna Covers
Start from the beginning-what makes a good membership idea?Price? Set-up? How much to price or how much does it cost to set up?
How do you differentiate what you blog and put in a membership site?
How much content should you have to start? How do I know if my niche would sustain a membership site?
Do you recommend a “pre-launch/pre-sale” Phase where people can pay for their first month before the site launches? The purpose would be to use the revenue from the pre-sales to purchase things needed to build the site like Wishlist.
How long does it take to actually get the site up and running?
What is reasonable to charge if you don’t have a following yet
Are your subscriptions directed to a specific landing page on your website? And how do you keep that page only available for members only? ( I am a complete newbie with this).
How to structure the content so it’s not overwhelming? How much ‘new content’ needs to be created each month?
Should you start a Facebook group first and then do the membership site or do they need to launch together.
This is what I’m trying to decide now. Do I start building a following on social media before creating the site
OptimizePress: For landing pages and membership site pages. WordPress Plugin/theme.
