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!

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.

Did you notice the title of this article? It’s going to be important in just a minute, so glance back at it one more time!
“How I Get Subscribers To Read My Emails”.
Any list publisher in the world knows in order to get subscribers responding to their email messages, those subscribers must first READ those email messages.
The question is – how to pull it off?
Let’s face it, just blasting out a message to your list won’t make the grade these days. It’s hard enough getting the darn thing delivered properly. Getting subscribers to actually read your mailing takes a bit of work.
And yet there IS a very systematic, very scientific formula for getting list members to take a look at your emails and read what you’ve got waiting for them.
It’s called – PRAYER!
Well, maybe that’s not the formula but it certainly couldn’t hurt. LOL
Getting back to the point, it’s all about crafting powerful “subject lines”.
The reason you’re here reading this is because the title in this article got your attention long enough to get you to take action.
So, it obviously worked.
Which prompts two important questions
1. Why did my title work well enough to get you to read it and respond?
2. How can you apply the same technique I used to see results with your emails?
Let’s break down the subject line I used, “How I get subscribers to read my emails”, into three important keys as we answer those two questions..
One of the things that undoubtedly caught your attention when you originally read my title was the fact that it spoke of some enticing results that I was achieving, that YOU would like to achieve as well…
“get subscribers to read my emails”
That’s an end result that every email marketer wants to achieve, getting their subscribers to actually open up and read their emails.
So, from the beginning there is this indication, this hint, that I am about to share something that has already been proven to produce desirable results.
That’s all ad copy is, folks, whether it’s a salesletter or a classified ad or an email subject line. The primary objective is to get the reader thinking about the END RESULT.
Start with the end in mind.
What potential results can you promise to your subscribers if they open your email and take a look inside?
I assure you, when a man or woman on the other end of the line gets your email, that’s what they want to know – “What’s in it for me?
You should never click the “send” button until you have made dead certain that something in your subject line appeals to the wants and desires of the individuals who are on your list.
Specifically, focusing on a desirable result (or lack of results, if you are using the “fear of loss” approach) that is so interesting to your subscribers that they stop in their tracks to read what you’ve got inside.
Start with the end results in mind: “get subscribers to read my emails”.
Whatever results YOUR specific list wants to achieve – as it relates to the mailing you are about to send –
* Speed read 150 pages an hour
* Get free airline tickets
* Raise a child model
* Take an extra day off each week
* Stop headaches for good
* Lost 12 pounds in 2 weeks
* Cut wedding costs in half
* Save your marriage
* Quit smoking in 30 days
After you’ve decided what “end result” you want to focus on, there is a second key to consider..
Learn this and learn this well: nothing – absolutely nothing – speaks louder than personal results.
How many times have you asked a man or woman who has lost a lot of weight…
“How did you do it?”
Just the other day the youth pastor at my church invited me to speak to the youth during a Wednesday night service. I accepted and for forty-five minutes those teenagers sat quietly, hanging on my every word.
After the service was over, the youth pastor came to me and said those magical words, “How did you do it?”
He went on to explain that they are rarely quiet with him and he has a hard time getting them to pay attention. He was so interested in learning how I did it that he dropped by my home the next day to ask me more questions.
Nothing – absolutely nothing – speaks louder than personal results.
* How did you lose that weight?
* How did you get those youth to listen to you?
* How did you get your lawn so green?
* How did you raise two great kids?
* How did you get that promotion?
* How did you teach your toddler to swim
You get the attention of your subscriber by hinting at results, but you reel them in by giving them details on how you personally achieved those desirable results.
If we have a pattern to follow, we can do it ourselves.
And that’s what we really want.
Notice my subject line: “How I get subscribers to read my emails”.
* How I speed read 150 pages an hour
* How I get free airline tickets
* How I raised a child model
* How I take an extra day off each week
* How I stopped headaches for good
* How I lost 12 pounds in 2 weeks
* How I cut wedding costs in half
* How I saved my marriage
* How I quit smoking in 30 days
Every single one of us that desires a result, wants to know how to achieve it. And we’d rather not go to the pains of trying to figure it out ourselves.
We’d much rather have someone who has achieved what we want to achieve show us how to do it.
That’s why you are reading this article. Does my system work? You tell me.
You wouldn’t be here unless it did.
But, there’s a third key as well…
Now, to be completely honest with you, this technique won’t work if you continue using it every single time you do a mailing to your list.
While you do want to hint at results and even mention personal results, you cannot simply plug in the same subject line over and over again…
* How I make money as an affiliate
* How I make money with joint ventures
* How I make money with my ezine
* How I make money with pay-per-clicks
* How I make money with banners
* How I make money with autoresponders
I mean, that’s gonna get old after a while. It’s gonna lose its luster. It’s not going to be nearly as effective after folks continue seeing it over and over again
That’s why you need to keep a set of proven effective subject line templates on hand, so you can “copy and paste” them every time you need a “grabber” subject line for your mailings. Watch what your favorite ezine authors do and you’ll come up with some good ones, or you can purchase a set of hot subject lines that you can use any time.
So, that’s how I get subscribers to read emails. I encourage you to do those three things with your own opt-in list…
Focus On The End Result.
Give Them An Example To Follow.
Use A Proven Template To Save Time And Increase Results.

get them to buy, but you’ll also learn how to create your own products
to sell and generate traffic to your site!

I don’t have much time today because it is 80 degrees here in Texas and I know 80 degrees means 100 is not too far away. That being said, I will get to the point so I can get outside and enjoy the weather!
Over the last several posts I have been promoting some options for you to get a membership site up and running. I believe whether you are a small business or mid size business, having a paid membership site is a great way to add a passive income stream to your business.
Today, however, I want to talk to you about traffic. Yes, web traffic to your site. Unfortunately, if you build it, they will not just come. You have to have a strategy and plan to get web traffic.
I know you have pobably heard of SEO (search engine optimization) and if not SEO is a way to rank high in the search engines. For most of us SEO is not a great strategy to get traffic. SEO can be costly and timely. Also, as you may have heard in the news recently Google changed the way they rank content overnight. For some all their hard work is now down the drain. Now, I am not saying ignore it completely I am just saying you could spend hours on it and get little ROI (return on investment). So what can you do?
Here are three website traffic methods you can bank on that won’t break your bank:
1.) Buyandsellads.com – Buy ads on over 2,900 successful blogs! Just pick the site you want to advertise on, and within minutes your ad will be shown
2.) Stumbleupon.com – Another place you can buy cheap ads that will drive users who are looking for similar content directly to your site.
3.) Tubemogul.com – Create videos and submit them to over 30 video hosting sites at once. A video syndication account is free.
Facebook – I am sure I do not need to tell you how big Facebook is. Let me tell you, if you are not using FB to advertise your site then you are losing out. Facebook is a marketer’s best dream. FB allows you to dial right in to your target audience. For example, I use it to advertise my Working Mom Workouts membership site. I target women who are ages 32-45, have kids ,with health and fitness as theie interest. And the best part is on go do this locally or go global with no extra cost. Tell me where else can you do that!!
So, once you have your site up and running go ahead and focus on the traffic methods I provided for you. If you have questions please feel free to contact me.
In health and welath,
