If you’ve followed the How to Create a Membership Site to Generate Passive Income article series, then you already know that there’s a truckload of profits waiting for you on the backend of your site. That is, you can make extra money by offering more products and even more expensive complimentary products to your members.
Now, one option is to be an affiliate for related products and services. The better option is to create these products yourself. That way, you keep 100% of your profits.
Here’s what I suggest: While you’re planning your first membership site, you should also simultaneously plan what complimentary products you’ll sell on the backend. And one way to make money on the backend is by creating a family of related sites and linking them together.
Let me give you an example from my own business. I run and use the following membership sites:
You can see why linking these sites together (cross-selling them on the backend) works. Any marketer needs to learn how to create content, so they join Contentnaire™.
Most marketers – even if they create their own products – will make additional money as affiliates, so they’ll join Affiliatenaire™ to learn how to get bigger affiliate paychecks.
Finally, most marketers will want to learn how to incorporate residual income streams into their business, which Simple Member System™ teaches them how to do.
Tip: The advantage of creating a family of sites goes beyond merely having something to sell on the backend. A family of sites also helps you develop your brand and grow your brand recognition. And that means more sales, more customers and more profits.
Now let me give you a few examples of how you can create a family of membership sites around a related niche (or even around a singular topic):
When you’re building your first membership site, ask yourself: What ELSE do my customers want?
Do your market research to find out what other products they’re currently buying. Then create a family of sites around related topics. It’s the quick and easy way to tap into the backend profits… on autopilot!
So I hope you have enjoyed this series of articles and have decided to start your own membership site. If you want a simple and fast way to get started then I recommend trying the Simple Member System to get your membership site up in the next 48 hours!
To your success,
I hope you are not like me and thought that if, “You build it they will come!” I had to learn the hard way because when I first built my membership site Working Mom Workouts I though that all I had to do is build the site, post some articles and tips and bam I would get a ton of traffic to my website! Boy was I wrong and I wasted a year thinking that if I just wrote more articles I would get ranked by Google. Wrong again! Finally though I came across Russell Brunson and his traffic generating systems.
So, let me ask you, “Do you need more traffic to your site?” Check out this new video that will help you get FREE traffic FAST.
Check it out here:
… Send traffic to www.___________.com, and minutes later floods of people are showing up at your site!
Sound like something you could use?
Ya, I thought so. I hope you love the video:
P.S. – on the video he will show you something called the Oprah traffic method… it works REALLY fast.
I’m an observer. I watch marketers and how they work.
I look at how people respond to marketing. And I’ve
discovered something interesting over the years that I
want to share with you as it relates to building your
Hot topics and trends come along regularly. There’s always
a new “in” thing making an appearance on the radar screen.
And whenever there’s a new rage, there will be marketers
who jump on the bandwagon.
That can pay off big for YOU if you’re smart.
Let me explain.
What happens when a new trend or technique or tool surfaces?
*** People begin to talk about it.***
Marketers begin convincing people why they need it.
Consumers tell their stories. Discussions take place. Hype
builds. Sometimes controversy breaks out. An education
Through it all … DEMAND increases.
Now, here’s where you come along.
You piggyback on the popularity of the latest big hit by
creating a small report on the topic. You get the benefit of
other marketers creating hungry leads for your offer without
them even knowing it.
Let me give you an example –
When John Reese released Traffic Secrets several years ago it was a huge success.
He sold over a million dollars worth of product in one twenty-four
hours. However, at a $997.00 asking price, it was out of reach
for many consumers.
What if YOU had decided to write a 15 page small report entitled,
“Free Traffic Secrets” and offered it for $20 … do you think
you would have had any takers? Of course!
Why? Because every marketer on the planet was talking about
the need for web site traffic so they could build interest in
John’s course. They were creating hungry leads for your offer
without them even knowing it.
All of these marketers expertly and persuasively pointed out
the necessity, benefits and usages of getting web site traffic.
They, in essence, would have created demand for the TOPIC of your
1. Many of those that couldn’t afford John’s high-ticket product
would likely buy your small report because the end result of
getting site traffic was something they had been told repeatedly
2. Many of those who could afford John’s high-ticket product would
also likely buy your small report because of the same reason AND
they would like to know what you might offer differently than John.
Do you see how powerful this is?
Even as I type this lesson out, I have received DOZENS of emails
today announcing a new co-registration product that everyone’s talking
I could spend a few hours this evening writing a small report on
the same topic and sell it like crazy tomorrow because of everything
that’s being said about the subject today.
So, what’s the lesson for you to learn here –
**The surest way to create a hot-selling small report is to
pick a topic related to that which everyone is talking about.***
You know, it doesn’t matter what “market” you’re in, chances are you see
the same kinds of outbreaks that I see in “internet marketing” circles …
* Major product launches
* New technologies and tools
* Fresh research
* Innovative features and improvements
* Ground-breaking news
* Hot topics of discussion
* Best-selling books
* Interest-grabbing magazine articles
* Emerging trends
The list could go on and on, right?
It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that you need to monitor what’s going
on around you, specifically looking for the latest topic everyone’s talking
You can do this by regularly browsing 4 trend and event “hot spots”…
1. Active Forums. Find at least one ACTIVE forum related to your market and
regularly visit it to look for ideas. Keyword here is “active”. The ideal
forum will have a number of participants who regularly post messages.
2. News Feeds. You can begin with Google.com’s news center at http://news.google.com.
You should also look for a news feed or site that is specific to your field
of interest. For example: I regulary visit http://ChristianHeadlines.com to
stay on top of events related to some of my Christian sites.
3. Article Directories. Spend a few minutes at your favorite article directory,
focusing specifically on the NEWEST articles posted and the TOP RECENT articles
read. I regularly check http://goarticles.com.
Competitor’s Lists. You’ll also want to “spy” on what your competition is doing
by joining their lists. When a major competitor begins highlighting certain
topics in their content (I.E. “articles”) and / or releases or promotes a specific
product, it’s a good indication that you should pay attention.
All of these things allow you to capitalize on the current buzz!
Create small reports based on these buzz-worthy topics.
And if you’d like to learn how to do this quickly and easily, check
out The Copy System. Not only will you learn how to create these
small reports very quickly, you’ll also learn how to build a list of
eager beaver subscribers to buy them and generate traffic to your site
to buy them.

Hello everyone. Today I want to bring you a guest post by one of my mentors. If you have a website and want to learn how to get traffic to your site you need to read this article.
“How To Get An Instant Traffic Surge To Your Site”
By Jimmy D. Brown of Traffic F.U.E.L.
There’s no question that building an affiliate program is THE best way to get a lot of free traffic to your web site.
And, if you spend any amount of time at all reading through the materials here, you’ll find a lot of useful ideas for finding affiliates to grow your program.
But, here is an affiliate idea that will absolutely take your traffic and sales to the next level.
Let me give it to you in it’s abbreviated form first, and then I’ll explain everything you need to know to quickly get it implemented.
You ready for this?
“Find a motivated ‘affiliate manager’ and pay them 50% of all your profits”
Now, I know what you’re thinking – why in the world would I pay someone HALF of all of my profit?
I’m about to explain it to you. And believe me, this is worth the read, so pay careful attention to what I’m about to explain to you.
This is good.
It works like this…
1. Setup a separate website to process orders.
To begin with, you’ll need to setup a separate website to process all of the orders that your “affiliate manager” brings in (along with all sales generated by the affiliates he recruits for you)
In other words, you register a new domain that is similar to the title of your existing domain, and you host that site.nt for processing all of the orders and managing your new affiliate program that your “manager” will be overseeing.
This is a completely separate account from your existing one. All orders generated through this account will be completely brought in by your affiliate manager and affiliates / partners he recruits.
Now, obviously, your affiliate manager will want to monitor sales stats to see how much profit is being generated to this Clickbank account. You’ve got two options for how you allow your affiliate manager access…
Get full access to the control panel. Your first option is to allow your affiliate manager complete access to the control panel at Clickbank in order to monitor stats. I highly recommend that you ONLY do this if your affiliate manager is someone you know well and find completely trustworthy. Once someone has access to your Clickbank account, they can, in effect, take control of the account. Use this option with extreme caution.
Give email access and screenshots. The other option is to setup a forwarding email address that sends the sales notifications from Clickbank to both of your email accounts. This will allow your affiliate manager to get notified when any sale is generated so they can verify sales and profits. Additionally, at the end of each pay period, you could take screenshots of the Clickbank control panel or scan the check you receive from Clickbank when sending your affiliate manager’s half of the profits received.em on to your affiliate manager to use with the affiliates he has recruited for the separate program.
Hint: Encourage him to create his own unique materials, incentives, and contests for his own affiliates as well!
What an incredible traffic-generation idea!
* 50% of all profits from this separate site!
* A growing database of affiliates!
* A growing opt-in list!
All in all, this is one of THE best ways to grow your business … without lifting a finger!

In health and wealth,
Hi my fellow small business owners it is Dave, your small business coach here. Listen, one of the hardest things whether you are offline or online is getting traffic to your business. As many of you know I have an online business Working Mom Workouts.com, where I provide weekly fitness workouts to my clients. One of my earliest mistakes was I spent a ton of money on PPC and other online advertising to get traffic to my site. It worked but it nearly bankrupted me, so with that said I was left with really only one option and that was to get traffic to the site for “FREE”! I had some ideas but I went back to one of the guys who helped me build my membership site.
Now, there are some “go to” website traffic strategies that most successful internet marketers find themselves using over and over again when they need a boost in visitors to one of their sites.
One well known internet marketer tells of using some of them for more than a DECADE (yep, over 10 years!) and they continue to work with incredible results for him.
Others are “cutting edge” newcomers that are likewise driving people to his sites.
All of them come without a cost. Zilch. No budget. Free.
What’s even better is this:
They continue to pull in traffic for months and even years after he deploy thems.
It’s true, long after the initial “spike” in traffic comes in visitors continue to see his promos that are in place and they continue to click on them.
And he continues to make money from them.
You can too!

It’s a 12-month training program that teaches you how to get completely free traffic to any website you choose.
Two things you need to know about it up front…
1) If you join now you can lock-in at the introductory price, which is a SUBSTANTIAL savings. Once these charter memberships are sold, the price will almost DOUBLE, so now is the time to get in.
2) There are two “fast action” bonuses that are VERY LIMITED. These will be removed without notice, so if you arrive at the site and one or both of the boxes with their description in it are gone, it means they are no longer available.
At a minimum you should drop by and grab a free subscription to his new Traffic Jam Newsletter.
And unless you don’t want any more traffic to your website, you should grab a charter membership to Traffic F.U.E.L. right away.
