Creating the material for a membership site is a lot easier than most would think. When you think of the intellectual property you would want to create for your followers, think of the course you would want to create for those who will be interested in your topic.

First I always want to be aware of what will make it easier for my database to become more successful and then I look for information and others who are also well known for their contributions in the topics.

I approach people who are listed on Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon and SelfGrowth with the concept of interviewing them about their experiences, references and knowledge. It is amazing at how easy it is to have people agree to be interviewed.

But the real secret to the success of the membership site is to have those who you are interviewing notify their database they will be interviewed by you and to listen to the interview, they only have to sign up through your database.

Then you will be able to develop your database from the trusted followers of those you are interviewing.

Imagine if you add 100 people every week from the databases of those who you are interviewing. In one year you will have more than 5,000 people in your database. That will be more than enough to create a substantial monthly income.
Membership sites are a prime source of income for those who have developed a following. This is just one of the many income streams you will be able to develop as an author.

Now that you’ve managed to build your database to a respectable 10,000, you will be able to develop a steady stream of income from all the work you have been doing to build the database.

I suggest editing each of the interviews as you do them and make a directory of them. Once your database is more than 5 to 10,000 you will start at auto responder program. You’ll send a message to your database offering free material: an mp3 file you might have done, an ebook, or even a portion of your book.

After sending at least six free programs, the next message will be to ask your database to pay for access to the interviews (programs) you have done. You should start out by offering the first program for $1.95 then the remaining programs for $9.95 a month.

When you have 10,000 people in your database, you’ll be able to generate a reasonable monthly income. The average is 10% of your database will sign up for your program, so when you have 1,000 people paying $10 a month, you’ll generate $10,000 a month.

That is just one of the 2o plus marketing programs you’ll be able to apply as an author. Many of the programs are passive, so once they are set up, you will be able to keep the income continuously with very little effort on your part.
