So… why limit your mailing list to just a paid membership site? Why not build a free membership site and gain an unlimited number of names and email addresses to which you have the legal right to send marketing emails? There simply is not satisfactory reason for NOT having a free membership site…at least not one that I can see.
Free membership sites are easy to set up and easy to operate. Of course, there must be fresh and timely content but that‟s a lot easier (not to mention cheaper) than constantly having to run PPC campaigns or paying for advertising in related E-zines to attract members to your opt-in list and thus gain their permission to market products and services to them.
We all know that visibility on the Internet is one of the basic keys to successful marketing. Getting visibility is one of the hardest tasks that most Internet marketers face from the inception of a marketing idea. All Internet marketers well understand the value of writing and marketing articles and E-Books, posting to blogs and forums that belong to others and doing PPC campaigns, as well as, exchanging links and paying for advertising in E-zines and newsletters.
With a free membership website, you can almost guarantee yourself, not only a long list of customers and potential customers but that others will be willing to pay YOU for advertisements on your free membership sites and advertisements in the newsletters that you send to your very impressively long list.
The shoe will be on the other foot, so to speak. Other marketers will be begging you to download and post articles and E-Books which they have written trying to gain that coveted Internet visibility.
Influence is another sought after and enviable facet of Internet marketing. When an Internet marketer gains influence over even a small group of consumers, they have a great deal influence among other Internet marketers, as well. When that pool of consumers is really large, a marketers influence with other marketers increases in direct proportion to the number of consumers that he has influence over.
With a free membership site, an Internet marketer gains access to an unlimited number of potential customers in his niche marketing area. By keeping his content fresh and timely he will gain influence over the purchases that the members of his free membership make and even when they make purchases and from whom. This is commonly known as „clout‟.
Paid membership sites usually have limited memberships. If the membership isn‟t limited by the marketer, it is limited by the number of people who are willing to pay an annual membership fee… and that number for any niche market IS a limited number.
On the other hand, a free membership site that allows interaction between the owner, as well as, with other members is affordable by everybody who might even be remotely interested in the products and services that the enterprising Internet marketer will be offering to his list.
The cost to members is a big fat zero and it just can‟t get any cheaper than then. Those who might well want to join a paid membership site but either don‟t think they can afford it or simply don‟t want to spring for the membership fees will certainly be able to join a free membership site.
Many Internet marketers who have paid membership sites also have free membership sites. Often those free sites are made up on customers or potential customers who will eventually become members of the paid membership site so it becomes a win/win situation for all concerned.
The bottom line here is that there is simply no reason NOT to build a free membership website no matter what niche market you are in.
You will have the potential of building an extensive opt-in list and there simply is no other way that is as easy or as cost effective out there!
What You Need Before Getting Started
Building a free membership website is just about as easy as falling off a log…well, maybe not quite that easy…but it IS easy. There are so many associated advantages to having a free membership site that the little bit of trouble and expense will be well worth the time and effort that are required.
To get started on building your free membership website you are going to need some tools. The first thing that you will need to secure is a web hosting service. There are actually two web hosting services that are excellent, reasonably priced and effective. You will have choices to make when you visit either of these two websites.
You will see that there are several choices of servers ranging in price from a measly $6.95 per month to a whopping $174.95 per month. The service that will most likely serve your needs for a very long time can be found under the fist choice of „Personal Hosting‟. When you click on the „learn more‟ link, you will see that there are several choices beginning with a „hatchling‟ account and all the way up to a Semi-dedicated account. The one that will most likely serve your needs is the „Swamp‟ account. It costs only $14.95 per month and will serve your needs for a very long time.Other Details
