There are a number of different reasons you should start a membership site. It doesn’t matter if you are a full-time Internet marketer or a small mom-and-pop business looking to generate more sales in your brick-and-mortar store there are notable benefits to starting a membership site. While everyone will realize unique benefits based upon their type of membership site there are seven fundamental benefits a membership website can provide.
1. Recurring Income
The first benefit is recurring income. It doesn’t matter if you charge a small monthly fee for members to join or offer a completely free membership site the website itself becomes an asset which can be leveraged to generate recurring income.
