How to Start & Grow a Membership Site Filled With Raving Fans Who Happily Renew Month After Month!

Does it feel like everyone and their dog is talking about membership sites right now?

Maybe that's because a well-planned member site gives you...

  • Consistent, predictable cash flow... month after month and year after year!
  • An easy path for members to upgrade to higher priced offers, such as group or private coaching—especially once they've had a chance to experience your teaching style and skills.
  • A massive library of valuable training you can repurpose and resell in multiple ways (what a time-saver!) 

Not only that, but membership sites work in nearly every niche, even if you teach...

  • Brush lettering as a business for women in Latin America (how's that for narrow?)
  • Canning for modern homesteaders
  • Meal planning for people with kidney disease

The list goes on. In fact, here's what Amy Porterfield says about memberships...

"Bottom line, almost any business can benefit from having some type of membership site. And it doesn’t have to be a lot of work to invite members in or to create content every month. The beauty of a membership site is that you get to leverage your knowledge with the content you provide and the recurring revenue that a membership will bring to your business."

Good for Your Businesses, Good for Your Subscribers

No one is denying that membership sites are good for your business. But that's not all... 

They offer amazing benefits for your members, too!

Membership sites give your clients...

  • Ongoing training and resources to help everyone achieve a common goal.  
  • An organized, systematic approach to sometimes complex ideas or strategies.  
  • Exclusive access to industry experts and thought leaders.
  • Deeper insights into complex topics.
  • Friendship and even partnerships with other members.
  • Discounts on additional training, necessary tools, and other helpful resources.
  • Personalized help for a fraction of the cost of hiring a coach.
  • Must-have resources they can refer to again and again as they work to achieve their goals.
  • And so much more!

Truly, the benefits to your members are nearly limitless... and so are your profits. Remember, you're making a sale just once, and getting paid over and over again.

Imagine Starting Every Month With Reliable Cash Flow

You’d wake up every day, confident that you won’t have to scramble to pay the rent this month.

You’d be able to plan for large purchases instead of just hoping for enough sales to make it happen.

You’d finally get to take that vacation, because even when you’re away from your desk, the money continues to come in.

That’s the magic of recurring income, and smart business owners quickly realize that the more recurring revenue they can generate, the less stress they’ll have.

How to Create a Recurring Income Plan for Your Business

True recurring revenue comes in many forms, and you’d be smart to add a mix of them to your business. The trouble is, they’re almost all slow to ramp up or worse, costly to get started.

  • You can spend months (years) building organic traffic to a blog that’s monetized with affiliate links.
  • You can launch a podcast and work to build an audience large enough to get the attention of an ads network.
  • You can start a YouTube channel and publish video after video in the hopes that a trickle of ad views will lead to income you can rely on.

But what if you could quickly build a recurring revenue stream just by sharing your experience and expertise?

What if you could leverage the products and courses you’re already creating, and turn them into monthly, predictable cash flow?

Introducing

Membership Site Mastery: 

Plan, Build, and Grow an Online Membership 

In 2018 I launched Six-Figure Systems, my online business training membership. While I could not be more proud of the community we’ve become (450+ members) and the resources it provides (40+ courses and toolkits), it wasn’t always easy.

In the beginning, I struggled to create enough content. I agonized over cancelled subscribers. I thought I’d never reach a point where the recurring income felt sustainable.

Your journey doesn’t have to be that hard.

Inside Membership Site Mastery, I’m pulling back the curtain and sharing everything I’ve learned about running a successful membership site, and it all starts with…

Lesson 1: 

Understanding the Membership Model

There is a world of difference between membership sites and other online business models, and only when you fully understand those differences will you be able to launch a successful membership.

By the time you finish lesson one, you’ll know…

  • The fundamental differences between a course and a membership and what they mean not only to you, but to your members as well.
  • Five big membership site myths that will keep you broke and struggling—and some pleasant truths instead.
  • What it’s really like to run a membership site, with a look behind the scenes of my own workweek, so you know exactly what to expect.

Here’s what you really need to know even before you buy this course: It’s your membership, and you can design it to fit your goals and your lifestyle, which is what the next lesson is all about...

Lesson 2: 

Your Membership, Your Rules

I don’t know about you, but I didn’t work so hard to start my own business just to have to do what someone else says I’m supposed to do. I like to do what works for ME, and that’s exactly what I’ll encourage you to do in lesson two, where you’ll decide…

  • How members will access your content. You’ll learn the difference between a library or academy style and a drip feed model, so you can choose the one that serves you and your members best.
  • Which payment model you’ll embrace. Each method has its pros and cons, and this is one decision you MUST make before you even start planning your content. 
  • The types of content you’ll include in your membership. I’ll help you choose the right style for you and your members based on your goals and their needs.

The last thing you want is to be stuck in a membership you don’t love and that doesn’t serve you (or your audience) so you’ll want to play close attention to this lesson!

Lesson 3:

Before You Make the Leap

Membership sites are a fantastic business model for a variety of reasons, but you don’t want to jump in head first without knowing how deep the water is.

In lesson three, I’ll help you understand…

  • How to know if you’re ready to take on the membership site challenge (Hint: You ARE up for the challenge.  Very few serious business owners fail to pass the test).
  • The true tech requirements and potential costs. The good news is, you’ll find options for just about every budget and skill level.
  • What you must know about the upkeep and maintenance a membership site requires, so you won’t feel blindsided after it’s too late to turn back. (You absolutely MUST make good decisions now, or you’ll regret it down the road.)
  • How to avoid the biggest hurdle new membership site owners face (and what to do if you bump up against it anyway).

As with all things, good planning is the key to your success, and lesson three is going to let you create a membership you love, that doesn’t suck up all your time or energy.

But before you can do that, you have to decide on your tech stack, and that’s what lesson four is all about.

Lesson 4:

Choosing Your Tech Stack

Perhaps the most important decision you’ll make as you’re planning your membership site is which software to use. With dozens of options to meet every budget, it’s a highly personal decision, and you should never just follow along blindly with what someone else tells you to do.

That’s why I’ve designed lesson four to fully explain your options, the implications of choosing one over another, and what it means to “future proof” your tech stack.

I won’t tell you what to buy, but I will help you…

  • Get crystal clear about what different software applications do, and how they work together to manage every aspect of your membership site. (Once you’ve got this figured out, the rest is as easy as pie!)
  • Understand exactly what you want and need your membership site software to do (and what’s completely unnecessary—and even a waste of money).
  • Work through the decision making process with a simple seven-step process that will ensure you make the right decisions for you, your members, and your wallet.

If you let them, the techy bits of a new membership can stop you right in your tracks. Lesson four makes it easy to choose so you can move on to lesson five with confidence.

Lesson 5:

Keeping the Content Flowing

Memberships aren’t stagnant. They’re ever-changing content resources that need care and feeding if they’re going to continue to grow. That might sound like a lot of work (and it can be) but in lesson five, I’ll show you…

  • How to keep a steady stream of content ideas flowing, so you never feel like you’re struggling to serve your members. I’ll share my eight favorite places to find new ideas, plus I’ll demonstrate how to turn a single blog post into an entire membership site with nearly a year’s worth of content.
  • Four content planning methods to try that will help your members to succeed (because successful members stay for the long-term, and they bring their friends, too!)
  • How to actually make the time to create content without working more hours than you like, and without burning out. If you’re concerned about the commitment, you’re not going to want to skip this section.

If you worry about creating enough content to keep your members happy and engaged, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the strategies in this lesson. They’ll set you up perfectly for lesson six, where we get down to the business of marketing.

Lesson 6:

Marketing Your Membership

As a membership site owner, not only are you in charge of keeping the content updated, but you’ll also be spending much of your time on marketing.

In lesson six, we’ll dig into…

  • How to price your membership to ensure you’re profitable. Most new site owners pick a number seemingly out of thin air, only to find out it’s not sustainable long term. Here’s how you can know for sure.
  • How to plan your membership launch to get a fast influx of founding members, including a walk through of the launch calendar I used to get 200 members in the first few days.
  • How to manage your ongoing promotions to keep your membership growing long-term. Don’t skip this part—it’s the key to a long-lived (and profitable) membership site.
  • How I use a $1 trial offer to add 50+ new members every month to Six-Figure Systems, and why I don’t recommend you offer a free trial at all.

New members are what keep your membership alive and profitable, but first, you have to encourage them to become long-term fans, and that’s what lesson seven is all about…

Lesson 7:

Improving Member Retention

It’s true what they say—it’s far less expensive to retain a current customer than it is to recruit new ones. But how, exactly, do you do that?

In lesson seven, we’ll dive into what you need to know about retention and churn rates, as well as some of the best member retention strategies, including…

  • How to understand member retention and churn rates, because you can’t improve it if you don’t know what your baseline is. I’ve included a handy calculator to make it easy for you to track your results.
  • How to create better retention right from the first day someone becomes a member. This simple strategy is one that all successful membership site owners embrace, and it’s so easy to do, you’ll be kicking yourself for not doing it, too.
  • Five key reasons members leave. Plug these holes (it’s easy!) and you’ll dramatically cut down on your cancellation rate.

Lesson 8:

Cancellations Happen (Don’t Panic)

Sometimes, despite all your best efforts, members will cancel. Don’t worry, that’s just a part of doing business as a membership site owner.

Smart site owners use cancellation data to improve their offer, so in lesson eight, we’ll take a look at…

  • How and why you should follow up with canceled members through a short cancellation sequence. I’ve even included a copy-and-paste template you can use.
  • How to use customer feedback to continually improve your membership. Accepting criticism about your site is hard, but there’s some gold in those comments if you know where to look.
  • How to create a “We Miss You” campaign to entice canceled members to return. Former members are often your best candidates for signing up again. Use these ideas to pique their curiosity and invite them to give you another look.

Who is Membership Site Mastery For?

This course is designed with coaches, digital product sellers, online course creators, bloggers, and other creators in mind. 

Imagine getting a behind-the-scenes look at how efficient, effective, and profitable membership sites run, then putting those same systems and practices to work in your own business.

With the time-saving power of done-for-you checklists that cover everything from software choices to failed payment recovery, it's more than just imagination. Instead of resenting the hours you spend managing your membership, you'll cut your work time by hours, and enjoy your community more.

If you've ever said this...

I want to build a membership site, but I'm intimidated by all the moving parts involved. How am I going to manage it all?

Or this...

I'd love to have that recurring income, but creating new content month after month (after month) feels like a huge commitment. How can I make it easy and fast?

Then Membership Site Mastery is for you. Here's exactly what you'll find when you log in...

  • 8 video lessons to walk you through every step of the process, from making critical decisions about your content and tools, to avoiding potentially disastrous membership site mishaps.
  • 20+ cheat sheets, worksheets, and checklists to simplify every step of your membership site planning, creation and marketing.
  • 10 copy-and-paste email templates to welcome new subscribers, encourage feedback, and win back canceled members.
  • Full transcripts and audio downloads let you study the materials in the way you prefer—online, on the go, or printed out for easier note taking.
  • Recommended tools and other resources to make creating and managing your membership site easy—for you and your members both.
  • AND answers to your membership site questions, too! Just post your question on any lesson where you're feeling stuck, and I'll pop in with an answer for you, typically in less than 24 hours.

Really loved how you had the different mediums of content! I actually listened to the video while reading the pdf lesson. There were many ideas I haven't thought of and I loved all the checklists and especially the email campaigns. I especially loved the info on winning back clients! Thank you so much! One of the best courses I've taken!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to use a specific software (such as Kajabi) to use your system?

Nope. I’ve written Membership Site Mastery with different budgets and technical needs in mind. In lesson four we’ll dig into how to choose the tech that will work for you, so you’re free to use whatever serves your needs best. 

What if I get stuck?

Every lesson has it’s own comment section, and you’re encouraged to ask any questions you have there. I’m happy to help fill in any gaps in your knowledge or help you get over a rough spot in your course development. 

I already bought Member Sites Made Easy. How is this different?

While there is some overlap, Member Sites Made Easy is a checklist pack designed to help you organize your thoughts and systems as you create a membership site. Membership Site Mastery is a video course that digs deeper into the strategies for building and growing a new membership.

Will this course help me pick a great topic for my membership?

No. Membership Site Mastery assumes you know what you want your membership to be about, but if you don’t already have a topic in mind, I recommend looking at your existing business to find how you can best serve your audience on an ongoing basis. 

How is this training delivered?

This is a video course, so you can log into the member's area and watch when it's convenient for you. Plus, we offer full transcripts and audio downloads if you prefer those formats instead.

Is this PLR (private label rights) content?

No, these resources are for your personal use only. You may not repurpose or resell them, or give them away to your clients or others. Virtual assistants, freelancers and others MAY use the strategies they learn to improve client projects.

What if I decide this course just isn't for me? Can I get a refund?

Absolutely! We have a generous 7-day, no questions asked refund policy. Just send us an email and we'll process a refund if this course is not a fit for your business.

I have other questions, how can I contact you?

You can reach me and my team by emailing helper@cindybidar.com. We’ll be glad to answer any questions you have.

I’ve packed three years of experience running a membership site into this course…

Listen, you could figure this all out on your own. You’re a savvy business owner, after all. But you’re also smart enough to learn from other people’s mistakes, and take it from me, I’ve made them all in the years I’ve been building Six-Figure Systems.

Skip the frustration and put these strategies to work as you plan and build your membership site. You’ll love how easy it can be once you understand the ins and outs of how memberships work, and you have a plan for the content and marketing of your new venture.

And if you already have a fledgling membership site on the go, I bet you’ll pick up a few tricks that will save you time and money, and more than cover your investment today.

About Your Membership Site Coach

Cindy Bidar

I launched my membership site, Six-Figure Systems, in 2018 with just 10 days of prep. In the years since, it’s grown to more than 40 courses, nearly 500 members, and it generates a very comfortable five figures of income every single month.

I’d love to tell you it’s been all sunshine and roses since day one, but that could not be further from the truth. There were many stumbles along the way, and today, we have a rock solid system for easy management and continued growth, and I’m inviting you to copy it for your own business.

I’ll pull back the curtain and reveal what’s working, what’s not, and what I’d do differently if I were going to do it all over again, so you can avoid making the same mistakes.

I’ll see you on the inside!
