Membership Site Profits - How To Earn Auto-Pilot Income

Disclosure: Our company is a ClickBank Vendor and Affiliate, and has been for more than 14 years. We earn money by selling our own products through ClickBank, as well as earning affiliate commission on other products sold by ClickBank, including ClickBank’s own products/services. Products/services mentioned in this review include products which we are affiliates of, and which we may earn a commission if you buy one of these products after following a link from this review.

Membership Site ProfitsOne of the clever way for ClickBank vendors to generate more revenue is to create a membership site rather than selling individual eBooks or software downloads. This is because membership sites allow you to make regular recurring sales to your customers, rather than indivudual one-off sales: the customer does not pay once to get your eBook - instead the customers pays every single month to continue to access your private member’s website.

ClickBank includes some really cool features designed to help smooth running your membership site, including most importantly, "Recurring Billing". "Recurring Billing" simply means that your customers enter their credit card or payment details once, but they continue be billed automatically every month until they decide to cancel their membership.

That said however, even with help from ClickBank, you need to still
take care of all the other aspects of running your membership site, including writing an effective pitch page that persuades people to join your membership site, creating content for your membership site that people will pay to see, and some technical/administrative aspects such as maintaining your list of members (although the right software, used properly, can make this task easy).

Here are some tools and resources for creating and running your own membership site:

  • Software:
    • Easy Member Pro: This is software that you can install (or have installed for you) on your website that automates the admin-side of running a membership site such as adding new members, removing members, etc. This probably the market-leader, perhaps the most flexible software choice, but it is still fairly technical in terms of setting it up, etc. If you are an experienced webmaster, this should probably be the first package that you should look at.
    • Member Desk: This package offers a really easy and quick way of setting up a membership site. It’s ideal for people who are not technical, or who don’t want to waste time messing with the tech-side. In short, if you are not a technical wizard, or you don’t want to devote much time to the technical side of things, then look at this package first.
  • Guides:
  • Graphics:
    • Membership Site Graphics Pack: This is a free set of graphics that your company have put together for owners of membership sites. It includes various "Join" payment buttons, as well as lots of attractive membership cards. I will also write a separate post specifically about this package, but you can dwonload it and check out the graphics for yourself. If you want even more graphics for your sales-letters, pitch-pages, or general internet-marketing needs, please check out out low-cost paid graphics packages: Internet Marketing Graphics Pack, and our ClickBank Vendor Graphics Pack ("CB Vendor Graphics Pack").
