WishList Insider – Forum Focus 69

The forums keep getting more and more active!

My Worst Interview Ever

A “bad” interview is pretty obvious right away.

You can often tell pretty early on if the person asking the questions hasn’t done much research or if the interviewee is uncomfortable with the line of questioning.

Extended silences and awkward pauses make everyone involved (including your members) uncomfortable. This leads to members being uninterested and leaving.

This leads me to my own experience in a certain interview…

So what can you learn from the worst interview I’ve ever had? Plenty!

Be THEIR Guest – Part 2

Guest blogging is basically providing quality content for others to use on their site.

You already provide incredible content for your own membership site. Now if you do it for others, then you can get increased traffic that’ll convert into more members (and revenue)!

But do you know how to correctly promote yourself in order to make your stint as a guest blogger effective?

You will be getting increased visibility, so you need to be sure you’re ready for it.

Membership Site Basics Course – Session 4 – Q & A

You had questions and we had answers!

The initial 3 part Membership Site Basics Course was so successful that we decided to add a 4th session in order to address any questions that came up during the previous sessions.

Everyone brought their “A Game” in terms of quality questions and we include some interesting examples as we responded live during the course of this 2 hour webinar.

We even include the Mindmap used during the course for download!

A lot of ground was covered when it comes to setting up a Membership Site so we encourage everyone to click through and check out Session 4 – Q & A.

Make It Stick… Again

A while back I wrote a piece called “The First Engagement” which can be found here.

This was all about getting our members over the first speed bump.

The first speed bump is the buyer’s remorse we all have a tendency to feel after making a purchase or joining something like a membership site. We talked about ways to make the member “stick” and how the first engagement plays such a crucial role in doing so.

I called it the modern-day version of the stick letter.

When we’ve got our members over that first hurdle, there’s another one coming in the near future.

Now we’ve got to add another element to our retention process to make the buyer stick again.

Open up the following PDF and listen to the audio as I walk you through one simple email example to help members get over the second speed bump. (This engagement might be even more important than the first… and I’ll show you why)
