Chandigarh, India (PressExposure) July 18, 2008 -- As an internet marketer, you are always looking for fresh, new products that you can use to product an income or to use as free offers to grow your subscriber list. One way of having access to new products is to join a membership site, which guarantees that you will always have something new to offer your customers.
There are various types of Membership Sites that you may wish to join. Some Membership Sites focus on releasing new Private Label Products each month, while other sites aim to build a core base of products that you may use for your online business.
So how will you know the best site to join? Or are there several sites that you may want to join, in order to get the benefits from multiple providers?
Firstly, let's talk about the positives and negatives about Membership Sites, then let's consider whether you should take the next step and join up.
Positives: 1. Membership sites provide you with e-products that you can use or resell, without having to do the hard work of creating your own products. 2. These products are governed by rights, but most sites include products with Master Resell Rights which you can do almost anything with. 3. You will always have access to a number of products without having to search the web for individual products with Resell Rights. 4. If Charter Memberships are available, then you may be given the opportunity to resell the Membership licences to "normal" members, and pocket a recurring monthly income. 5. You save time by accessing a number of products which you can repackage and sell as a bundle. 6. You have the ability to create offers to other people that surpass your monthly membership costs, and hence make a profit.
Negatives: 1. Monthly membership fees are typically required, which can cost up to $30 per month. Yearly costs can be upward from $97. 2. The number of subscribers in the Membership Site may become quite substantial, so you may all be drawing upon the same resources. 3. Products may be released into the Marketplace and become devalued very quickly, or given away for free. 4. If you break membership you may need to signup again later, which may incur setup fees. 5. The products may not necessarily be in your niche area, so unless you check this out carefully you may be paying for a service you never use. 6. If you wish to run your own membership site and wish to resell the products, be aware that some products may not be directly transferable from the site you are subscribing to.
Should you join Membership Sites? You will need to determine whether a Membership site is going to deliver benefits to your business in the long term. eg. Do the positives outweigh the negatives? Do the products line up with your Niche Market? Can you afford to maintain the monthly or yearly fee? Are the products saturating the market?
If you can safely answer these questions for a prospective Membership Site and can see how to utilize the potential of the products for your business, then Membership Sites are for you.
