Below is episode #1
Some ideas burst into the air like a rocket.
Others quickly fizzle off into the night like a bottle rocket.
There’s a big difference between an “idea” and a “great idea”, right?
Fortunately, there’s also a simple process that you can follow to get great ideas for your membership site. If you’re unsure how to begin and are stuck for ideas, try out these tips. Your next membership site may not be that far away.
Begin by brainstorming your own life. Get personal! Creating your membership site is going to be much easier if you know a little bit about the market. That’s why it’s a great idea to start your ideas list with hobbies, interests and activities from your own life. Write down everything that you and your family members are passionate about or interested in. This list could be a goldmine for your membership site.
Ebook and video course creators have done a lot of niche market research in order to create their products. You can piggyback on this research specifically by keeping an eye on “product launches”. For example, if you see a lot of products being produced on article marketing you can safely assume that a membership site on the same topic would do well. Subscribe to email lists in your potential market to watch for product launches and get ideas for your site.
Persuse means “to examine in detail”. It also begins with “p” so it fits my outline.
If you want a comprehensive list of existing electronic products that are selling well, Clickbank.com/marketplace is the place to go. Search through the marketplace to find out what topics your market is interested in learning about. You’ll be able to find new market ideas, content to fill your site as well as affiliate offers to create some backend sales.
Visit Amazon.com’s best-seller list. Amazon is the top bookseller online so it makes sense to search their marketplace for membership site ideas. The bestseller lists in various categories will help you see what topics are popular. You can easily gather membership site ideas from these lists. Hint: Go with the topics that are popular.
Forums are the pulse of your market. You can be sure that a market has members that would be willing to pay if there is an active forum dedicated to that topic. Track down some popular forums in your potential market and spend some time browsing through the topics. See what the market is talking about. Pay close attention to the FAQs section and the threads that have a lot of activity. These are indicators of the kinds of topics which might serve as a topic for your next membership site.
You gotta go to Magazines.com! This website is full of membership site ideas. If a market has a buying audience, there is probably a magazine out there dedicated to it. Magazines don’t get started without advertising dollars to back them up. If advertisers are paying to get to a market, it’s a safe bet that you can create a membership site for the same market. On Magazines.com you can search by category to find membership site ideas. I love this place!
The final stop I want to mention is Yahoo groups. These free e-mail discussion lists cover a wide variety of topics. Subscribe to a few groups in your potential market to look for ideas. The benefit of using groups like these is that you’ll often be able to see problems in the market that aren’t currently being met by other products.
By going through these simple outlets you are sure to find a great idea for your next membership site.
If you’d like a shortcut for finding a great idea — and an even bigger shortcut to getting a membership site setup and taking orders, grab a copy of the Membership To Go package.

This has never been offered before and it includes EVERYTHING you need to get started, including private label rights to the membership content, its sales letter, presell report, articles and other marketing materials.

I thought in preparation for my upcoming to talk to the Frisco YEA (Young Entrepreneurs Academy) I would go ahead and write out my presentation here on the blog for practice but also to share with everyone else who is interested in making money from Niche Marketing.
The title of my presentation is going to be “Riches in Niches.” The reason I have chosen that title is because if you were to study almost every successful company you will have seen that in their beginnings they focused in on a specific niche and once they conquered that niche they grew and moved on. Don’t worry I will explain more later but let me start off by telling you a little bit about me.
Well I wish I could stand up here and have some great story about how when I was 12 I started a baseball trading company out of my room or how I started College and dropped out to start up a high tech software company from my parent’s garage but unfortunately that is not the case. Actually I took a different route. Starting a business was the last thing on my mind when I was growing up. I was concerned with only two things: One, playing sports and two, hanging out with my friends. The only real business or entrepreneurial thoughts I had was how was I going to have money to pay for my car insurance and going out money.
Now, what was also engrained in my head was that college was not a choice but a necessity. You see, I had three siblings and none of them including my parents went to college, so from an early age my mom put it in my head that I was going to be the first one in the family to get a college degree.
So after high school off I went to the University of Florida to study sports medicine. I wanted to be an athletic trainer or physical therapist after graduating. That was not in the cards or should I say not in the grades. Now, I did not do bad in school I just focused more on hanging out with my friends and going to Gator football games then studying enough to get the grades I needed to make it into PT school.
Okay, so after I graduated I did an internship with the Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas and met several personal trainers who were making some really good money training members of the club. Also, I saw that they had a lot of flexibility with creating their schedule and they dictated how much they made by the amount of hours they wanted to train. Those two things really appealed to me, so that is what I pursued right out of school.
Now, I am from Florida so I went back home to Orlando and worked for a guy who owned his own private PT studio. It was at this point after graduating from school that I started to get the bug for learning and business. So fast forward a little and as you can see in the picture that is my wife who at the time was living in Dallas and wanted me to move out there.
So, I packed up my stuff in my car and drove out there. I started a job as PT at a club in Dallas called the Premier Club. It was located right by SMU and Highland park. One of the best moves I ever made because my clients were successful business men and at the time the economy was booming and people were creating internet companies and selling them for a lot of money. Mark Cuban was working out there and I got to see him sell his company and become the billionaire he is today. Hanging around all these successful guys got me to thinking about creating my own success story but I felt I needed some business background, which led me to pursue an MBA from UTD.
After I graduated from UTD with my MBA a friend of mine asked me to come help start up the brand new Cooper Aerobics Center at Craig Ranch. I jumped on the opportunity because at the time the economy was doing great and this gave me a chance to work with a start up with any of my capital at risk. Well, let’s fast forward agin and five years after I had built a thriving personal training department the housing bubble burst and the club suffered. I won’t bore you with details but the project turned south and the bank and investors wanted a change at the top! That left me and the other managers out.
For the first time in my life I was unemployed and not sure what I was going to do, but after soul searching and talking it over with my wife I decided it was time I bring out that entrepreneurial spirit in me and since then I have not looked back.
I currently run two businesses. The first one is an information marketing company where I sell products to different niches, like my Working Mom Workouts site which is membership site that provides weekly fitness workouts for moms. Also, I have written a book on how to profit form blogging where I target people who are looking to make passive income from their blog. The second company I run is a local internet marketing firm where I provide marketing services for small local businesses.
That is my story which now leads me into the discussion of Niche Marketing and will be part II in this blog series.
