What is a Membership Site?
A membership site is a gated website where individuals commonly pay for access to high-value content. A membership site enables the website owner, to earn recurring income by selling memberships to users.
Membership sites typically offer valuable content to their users for which the users need to pay and subscribe to a membership plan to get the privileged access.
The content available on membership websites could be
- News Items
- Downloadable Files
Why should you launch a membership site?
Membership sites are a great way for specialists or mentors in their respective fields or specialties to make their content available to the users. Membership websites are a great way to earn passive income while you work on your day job. It is a great way to earn a (generally) un-involved, recurring income given that you continually update your site with fresh and relevant content. Members of your website will have access to your content.
