Building Your Community: Tips From Top Bloggers – Part 2

A thriving community within your membership site results in a strong recurring income. Members sign up because of your content, but they stay because of community.

Thanks to what I learned from Linda Bernstein, Britt Michaelian, Amy Vernon, and Jessica Northey during this year’s New Media Expo, I can share some tips to help increase the size of your membership site, and enjoy the additional recurring payments.

Not to mention the other benefits that accompany a thriving community based site.

Do Membership Site Owners Have A Consumer Mentality?

You may be asking what I mean by that title.

Alright, first let’s look at what the word “consumer” really means.

Biology-Online defines the word consumer as; “An organism that generally obtains food by feeding on other organisms or organic matter due to lack of the ability to manufacture own food from inorganic sources.”

Okay, so the point being…?

Do we have a consumer mentality when it comes to our membership sites?

Do we “feed” off our members?

Or are we the ones who actually feed our members with valuable resources and information?

How To Resolve An Incomplete Registration?

What happens if someone doesn’t fill out the registration form that appears after they have paid to join your membership site?

For one thing, it means that their account has not been fully created so they cannot access what they have just purchased.

This can lead to confusion and unhappy members.

Keeping an eye out for Incomplete Registrations and knowing what to do if you see one is important.

This conversation between Insiders talks about exactly what you need to do to keep your members happy (and the money coming in).


Certificate Plugin

Have you ever wanted to offer your members a certificate based on the completion of a course?

If you offer lessons and want to give your members something when they have achieved a passing grade, then certificates can be very useful.

But how can you create those certificates?

The Insiders discuss various ways to accomplish this goal within this forum thread.

As usual, some “out of the box” suggestions are addressed as well 🙂


Google And Protected Content Search

How much of your content do you want Google to be able to access?

If someone searches for anything within your membership niche, just how deep do you want Google to dig?

You need to ask yourself this question in regards to your pages and posts but also any files (PDFs, Audio, etc.) that you offer.

The conversation within the forum gets into how you can control what search engines are able to find and display when it comes to your WishList Member site.

Jump in to find out if your content is protected in the way you intended.

Kick-Start Content Creation By Taking A Look Back

How often have you heard the term “re-purpose” lately?

It seems like you can re-purpose just about anything these days.

Your old shirt can become a fantastic quilt or your socks can be transformed into a stuffed monkey. Got some old jeans? With a little effort you can turns those into a skirt.

The list goes on and on…

This same concept can be applied to your content.

It’s true and it’s not as hard as you may think. All you need to do is add your own personality and flare to something old to make it relevant (and desirable) for your members.
