How to Launch a Membership Site

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Yes, i’ve been gone for awhile.  Did you miss me?

Sorry.  I’ve been having some major financial problems lately and actually had to take a part-time offline job for a little while to help make ends meet.  I’ve also been busy doing light shows around town including a really amazing 5-day festival in downtown St. Louis.

Now that things are looking better and I should have more time to focus on getting my business rolling again which means more frequent blog updates.

So here’s what’s up… after kicking around the idea for over 6 months I am finally going to launch my first membership site.  This is something I have never done before so it’s going to be a bit of a learning experience.  I figure I can document the process here in my blog so hopefully someone can learn from my success (or failure… gulp).

I wouldn’t expect to see a finished product any time soon since I plan on taking my time and trying to do everything the right way.  So far I have purchased a copy of “Launch Formula Marketing” which although being very expensive is actually pretty awesome because now I will be able to launch as many membership sites as I want (assuming I can pull this one off).

I also hired a graphic designer to do all the layouts for me.  That’s right.  No more crappy do-it-yourself webdesigns.  It actually wasn’t that expensive especially compared to how much time I find myself spending trying to do my own layouts.  I’m still waiting for them to send me the first draft but that should be very soon.

The one thing I don’t have yet is a product.  Yeah, you would think that is kinda important but I am trying to do things a little different than what I did with Traffic Success Formula.  Rather than create a product and then try to come up with a bunch of ways to market it I want to create some killer marketing materials first and then create a product to go with it. This way I can be sure my product will be tailored to meet all the needs of the people I am marketing it to.

I also figure I will be a lot more motivated to actually create the product once some of the other stuff is done.

So does this sound like something you would be interested in reading more about?  I am much more likely to keep posting updates if you leave some encouraging comments.  You can also bookmark this page or sign-up for updates up on the top corner of the page.

    Heard about you from Sunny Scruggs so I thought I would stop by and check out your blog. I’m liking your journal on building your first membership site.
