WishList Insider – Forum Focus 29

We realize a lot can happen throughout the course of a week. Everyone can become busy with a little of “this” and a lot of “that” during their day to day lives so it’s not always easy to keep on top of all the useful and helpful posts within the Insider Forums.

For these reasons we have decided to apply some focus to a number of posts each week that we believe can benefit our Members.

Read on for summaries and links to this week’s “Forum Focus” Posts.

Lost Members Mean Lost Money – Part 1

People buy things because they perceive those items as having value.

A car is valuable since it can transport you somewhere and can contribute to your perceived status.

Medicine cures aliments, and thus it’s value is fairly obvious.

People take out student loans because they believe knowledge is of great value.

Your members feel the same way. As nice as they are, they aren’t giving you money to help you out. You have knowledge they believe is valuable so they’re giving you money in exchange.

But what if they erroneously believe you don’t have this knowledgeable content because they can’t find it?

Dedicated vs. Shared Hosting Which Is Best For YOU?

I get a lot of questions about which hosting solution to use.

“Which host should I go with? Does it really matter?”

These decisions can be a bit confusing. Especially if you are just starting out with a website and are not sure of the options available.

One of the main things you should invest in, for an online business, is a high quality hosting service as you need a solid foundation for your site.

But what should you consider when making this very important choice? How can you be sure you pick the right fit for you and your membership site?

An E-mail Trail To Improved Sales – Part 2

People are always searching for the next big thing to promote their online business.

While it’s good to keep an eye out for new methods of promotion, be careful not to neglect Email Marketing as it’s still a reliable and classic option that’s proven to increase conversions and entice new and existing members.

In a previous article, I spoke about e-mail serving as the path to sales and the critical trio of a solid landing page, a contact capture form, and contact campaigns to ensure success.

This was thanks to Heather Seitz (the “E-mail Queen” who built a successful real estate and marketing company) and her presentation at the Last Big Seminar.

I will expand upon some incredibly valuable tips you can use to build up your E-mail Marketing list so that you’ll have people WANTING to hear your sales message.

Become an Author and Become the Authority – Part 3

In previous articles, I demonstrated the power of authoring books to overcome the question of:

“Why should I do business with YOU instead of your competition?”

Writing your own book makes you an authority to most people, and hence trusted enough to make paying for your membership site “worth it”.

We’ve already discussed ways to become an authority and how to write the book so people will trust you so today we’ll discuss how to publish your book so you can add more clients to your membership site.

We Want To Answer YOUR Questions!

We are starting up a new series of webinars this month to stick with the theme of “Awesome April” (check out Inside The Insider 47 for more details on Awesome April).

These “How Do I…?” webinars will run once a month and will answer questions that have been submitted by WishList Insiders (that means YOU!)

These questions can range on topics from the basic set up of WishList Member features to more involved scenarios. Basically, it’s anything you want to know! This is your chance to get any burning questions you may have regarding your site answered.

John and Wray will select as many of the submitted questions as possible and will answer them during the webinar.

We will be posting the first “How Do I…?” webinar next week so be sure to get any questions in by this Monday. Note that any questions posted after Monday are eligible for next month’s webinar.

New To The WL Widget Control? No Problem!
