Spark Creativity By Reading… And Talking To Yourself?

When producing a lot of content for your membership site, you can occasionally run out of steam.

There may be times when you do not know where to go next with your writing or with the next step of your sites growth.

To improve at anything, you must practice, practice, practice.

The more you do something, the more creative you will become and the easier it will be to “pull up” that creative side when needed.

So how can you spark your creativity to ignite more successful ideas for your membership site?

Developer Corner – Session 08: Sidebar Button Color Change Upon Hover

Another very common question we receive from WishList Insiders is:

“How did you get the options on your side bar to change color when they are hovered over?”

This is an awesome feature our Development Team created for the site when we launched and this installment of Developer Corner is going to explain how you can have the same feature appear on your own site.

It’s a relatively easy addition and your members will definitely take notice of it.

Note that we have included a file containing Example Code below the video to make things easier for you.

Affiliates Can Make You More Money If You Let Them – Part 1

For those who maybe don’t know, affiliates are people who promote other goods and services for a percentage of a successful sale.

It’s a terrific way to advertise on a budget (or just in general).

Anyone aware of affiliate programs already know that they can translate into more sales very quickly.

You won’t go broke due to elaborate advertisement pushes, and cost of promotion (sales to affiliates) is paid out of completed sales (that you may not have made otherwise).

It’s a nice and easy way to rack up the sales by simply offering your membership sites to affiliates. All you need to do is “List it, and the money will come”.

Well, not exactly…

So what actions do you need to take in order to promote your membership site the affiliate way?

WishList Insider – Forum Focus 25

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.

Marketing Toward the Elderly

Each social economic group has its own set of overall characteristics and what’s received well by one group of people may not be as welcomed elsewhere.

Marketing toward the Elderly does include many of the same tips you should use with other groups. Avoid taboos, target relevant issues and needs, and center your advertisements around that group so they’ll indentify with what you are offering.

What makes marketing toward the elderly so enticing is the higher level of disposable income and time. The elderly control the higher percentage of wealth yet only 10% of advertisements are directed toward them.

With such a large financial group and so little competition, it’s no wonder many companies are starting to target this lucrative group.

With that in mind, here are some tips so you can tap the valuable “Silver Market”.

Members NOT Receiving AutoResponder Emails? This Could Be Why

Most everyone has had this scenario happen once or twice while working with their WishList Member site; the need arises to manually add a FREE Member to your site.

Someone may call you up or run into you at a party and inform you that they love what you do and are wondering if there is any possible way you could hook them up with a FREE Membership.

Of course, since you are such a generous individual, you decide to oblige 🙂

You quickly add them using the “Add Member” feature in the Members section and within a few seconds, your friend, co-worker or Mother now has a free membership to call their very own.

No problem, right? Well, almost…

If you have integrated WishList Member with an AutoResponder then you will definitely want to continue reading in order to avoid a potential issue down the road.

Become an Author and Become the Authority – Part 2

Customers want to feel they made the best decision when making a purchase.

Typically they’ll ask; “Why should I do business with you instead of your competition”.

Factors such as price or offering additional value certainly help. However, nothing helps more than a reputation of authority.

It convinces potential signups that you know what you’re talking about. This is a more effective deal closer than the price or package deals alone.

Thanks to Jim Howard from the Last Big Seminar, I will show you how to become and present yourself as an “Authority” through the power of your very own book as we expand upon what was discussed in Part 1 of this series.

What Makes Them So Good?

What makes a good membership site good?

You know, the sites that continually have new members signing up, lots of activity in the forum and low cancellation rates.

How do you get to that “sweet spot”?

Some say it largely depends on the market.

But, if you look across all the different niche markets it becomes very apparent that the successful membership sites are doing something that others aren’t.

In this series we’ll look at what those “things” are and how you can easily include them in your site.

Starting with Foundation #1…
