The Power of Membership Programs

Membership programs are the best way to create residual income. You know the kind of income that is coming in month after month for years to come or at least as long as the referral remains a member of the service you sold.

There is no difference in how you advertise for this programs compared to how you advertise for one time sales like ebooks or software. There are membership programs available for almost every thing you can imagine. It would take weeks for you to sort through all the possibilities.

In my opinion membership programs are the best products to advertise for. Even if you only sell one membership per month. Doesn't sound much, doesn't it? But it's probably more realistic than the high flying promises of the membership program owners. Focus for just a minute and follow my math.

1 membership sale per month. Let's say your commission is $5, this is a realistic amount not a fantasy commission nobody ever gets. After selling this program for 1 year you have 12 paid memberships, which now totals $60 per month. Plus the commission from all the other members as well. You will earn $390 in your first year. Hmm, not quite enough to quit my job.

Let's continue. The second year you already start with 12 members and $60. By the end of the second year you have 24 members and $120 residual income per month, which is $1110 per year. If you continue this for the period of 5 years your monthly residual income will be $300.

Ok, still not exited. I don't blame you. Here's what you can do. Run free classified ads and slightly increase your sales rate to let's say 1 membership sales per week. You just shortened to length of time to get $300 a month from 5 years to 1 year. Now let's further assume that you promote more than 1 program. Promoting 5 membership programs at the same time is no big deal to do and it will increase your monthly income from $300 to $1,500.

Of course these are all just numbers and speculations. To make my point. Selling on the internet is a numbers game. To make the numbers work you need to sell a lot and often. Membership programs are a perfect product to get the most out of your advertising efforts. Remember: The income potential is too low to run massive paid advertising. Stick to free classified ads and use the method "set and forget". The less attention you pay the more effective your campaign will be.

This is my list of membership programs that are free to join as an affiliate. They never will cost you any money to promote their membership program. Remember, the subscribers are making you money not the program.

         Search Engine Blaster - Search engine submission service for a monthly fee.

         The Secret To Their Success - Corey Rudl's membership program for power affiliates.

         Guru Mailer - This is the premium email list builder. Solid performance and quality leads.

         Convert More Traffic - This is the premium membership site that offers proven tactics and strategies to improve your traffic conversion rates. You can have all the traffic in the world as long as you can't get any profit out of it it's useless.
