Using PLR For Membership Sites

Along with the products that you sell through your website, your business could make additional income by making some content available exclusively to members. For example, suppose you manage to sign up 200 members paying just $20 a month for information on your site, you will already be earning $4000 over and above what you make from sale of products. Of course, the catch is that you need to be able to provide fresh content, updated on a regular basis to your members because otherwise they will feel cheated and an unhappy customer is bad for business.

You can build a membership site around a carefully selected number of extremely good quality private label rights articles, ebooks and videos. You can modify these and post them on a regular basis to the ‘members only’ area so that only members can view them or download them as they wish. Here are a few different ways in which you can use PLR content for your membership sites.

· For members willing to pay more, you could make additional or more technical material available. You could also include tutorials and how-to guides.

· You could offer a free report or ebook the first time a member signs up for the site.

· You could also offer a small selection of the content for those prospects that actually make a purchase.

· You could make money in the ‘members only’ area by placing related ads, offering SEO products and even related memberships.

· Once members sign up for your site, you could send them additional emails informing them of new products on your website or those of your affiliate.

· You could also include video tutorials on a regular basis in the member area. PLR video tutorials can be easily edited and branded with your company name and website. Many members will appreciate these video tutorials.

· PLR ebooks in the manner of ‘how-to’ guides also prove very popular. You should modify these guides to reflect the products that you are selling.

Another point that you need to bear in mind is that you must never compromise on the quality of the content that you are going to provide. If your budget is limited, then you may be better off providing a one-time offer for all your members to download the content for a reasonable price. You can also have giveaway reports or ebooks that you could make available only to members. Make sure that these carry your company logo and your website address.

If you are concerned about the quality of the material, another alternative is to make the membership absolutely free. You can make money through affiliate links placed in the member area. Include content that is relevant to the affiliate products as well and make suitable recommendations.

As you can see, there are many benefits to running a membership site. Apart from the fact that this can be used to generate additional income for your business, it can also be used to great effect to create brand awareness and brand loyalty.
