WishList Insider – Forum Focus 437

A test environment is always a good idea.

Somewhere to try things out before making changes to the actual membership site.

Think of the test environment as a safety net.

We all likely have a similar story or two. The classic tale about making an adjustment on a live site only to find out later that seemingly small change resulted in a bigger problem.

WishList Insider – Forum Focus 414

“A strange thing happened today”.

That is the first sentence in the first post in this featured forum thread.

That is also not an uncommon thought to have when dealing with web sites on a regular basis. You might expect one thing to go one way and it ends up going another.

Some will even find a way to turn a lackluster product into much more.

This same thinking can be applied to a membership level that may not have taken off as intended.

Membership Site Masters – The Tester

Chapter #4 – The Tester

In this interview you’ll hear from someone we call THE TESTER.

Creating a successful membership site is easy. You only really have to do 2 things – get new members and keep them.

But not all membership sites are a success – so what’s the difference?

The money is in the little details that can swing a site from making a few thousand a month to making hundreds of thousands a month.

During this interview, you’ll get a unique perspective from someone who has successfully discovered some of those “details” that have turned his membership site into millions.
